Hey Linda!! I'll send U miles of smiles---like that!! Well, as they say,U never know.... My Urquharts had first lived in Banff and that may provide a link. My last family there immigrated from Dundee in the 1850's. However, half at least, stayed in Scotland. Every family here too had Margaret Smith in their Irleand fmailies. The Urquhart and Ireland folk were mostly in the weaving trade--- what a surpirse... There also were several brewers and at least one journalist. On my maternal line back to Scotland I am a direct descendant of Malcom III, William the Lion, and Duncan---monarchs. I still am trying to tie in the Urquharts with the famousUrquhart Clan Castle ofthe Nessie legend. Where are U by the way? Have U ever been to Scotland? It's a magicalplace for me. Feel free to write me at Ireland719@aol.com... Have an awesome one when U read!! All "me" best, John Ireland!!
