How nice to meet you, Michelle: We are distant cousins through the McBurney family.
George McBurney, b.11/13/1818, m.8/5/1843, d.2/24/1865, was married to Agnes Page, daughter of Thomas and Jennie Ferguson Page. They emigrated from Glasgow, but I don't know if they were actually from Glasgow. Jennie Ferguson's lineage went back to King Fergus I of Scotland, an you are thus entitled to wear the Ferguson kilt. Please send me your data and I can fill you in on some descendants to the present day. My mother was a granddaughter of Jane McBurney and Richard C. Acton of Alexandria, Va. Jane McBurney was a daughter of George McBurney and Agnes Page. Best wishes, Jane Mears
