I've been told that Scots living in colonial Virginia in mid-1700's are harder to track b/c of they were not baptised or married in Church of England. Were they referred to as "Dissenters"? Is that the right term? (If so, I think my 6ggrandfather Charles Burns d. 1789 Henry Co., VA was one.) I've also heard they baptised, married, etc. by traveling clergymen, sometimes coming from as far away as Philadelphia. Is that true? Clergymen of what denomination? And, the BIG questions: do any of those clergymen's records still exist and, if so, WHERE? If you have knowledge on any of these matters, please advise. Thanks.
