John and Sara List and Biographies Update!

I have been reworking the John and Sara List and biographical information today.

I still really NEED more descendants and researchers for these 272 Scots. If you see your ancestor on the list please let me know so I can add you as a descendant and/or researcher. If you can provide a mini. bio. that would be wonderful, too!

    I am told that my family (Callendar, Callander, Kallander, Kallendar) came from the town of Callendar, Scotland. I have been told that brothers came over on the John and Sara. I am trying to make a link from Samuel Callendar born in Virginia in 1756 to Scotland. Evidently his father own a planation in Loudoun, Virginia and disowned Samuel when he went off to fight for the Revolution. I am looking for a solid link between Samuel and those that were on the John and Sara.

    Hello, I just found your blog and will be spending more time here.

    I recently learned the name of a great grandfather (John Ross) and that he may have been a POW from the Battle of Dunbar who was relocated to the new world. Supposedly, John Ross arrived on the “John & Sara” along with his brother Killicross (Gilchrist). Both John & Killicross settled in Ipswich, MA and flourished. Both of the brothers wed in 1661/62. John married Mary Haggett and Killicross married Mary Galley.

    I already had Killicross in my database, as a great uncle. But I usually don’t research great aunts/uncles/cousins.

    Any guidance you can offer will be appreciated!

    ” James settled in Roxbury in 1652
    And had lot 35 in Woodstock. Family tradition is that he arrived with the political prisoners engaged in the disastrous battles against cromwells forces,and was one of the clan of Fraser,prominent as adherents of charles 1,who with a brother fled(?) to America.he changed his name in passage from Frazier to frisel or seemed prudent to change the name as he was on the losing side of the conflict
