Cut off before I finished. I started to say the GILDART Passenger list does not reflect an Ochiltree. It does reflect two Alexander Stewarts and a story was made up about one of them and his two brothers changing their name to Ochiltree. However the brothers that were picked were already Ochiltree for many years before that in Northern Ireland.
Dobson has written some of the best reference books out there but I think we should use the term "appeared in America" rather than "arrived in America". Usually the latter cannot be proven but we do know when the name started popping up in documents.
One more. The lady in 1916 that assigned David and Duncan as children of Lord Ochiltree never reviewed the public records of northern Ireland. This lineage is well spelled out and i do not believe you will find these names mentioned. (Actually the line died off).
