A big thank-you to my distant-cousin and blogger extraordinaire, Heather Wilkinson Rojo, for letting me know about the “Exeter History Minute” on You Tube. This particular episode published on 4 Sep 2013 was filmed near Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands and features a discussion about the Scottish Prisoners of War that were early settlers in Exeter, New Hampshire. The Scottish POWs specifically mentioned by Barbara of the Exeter Historical Society are: Alexander Gordon, Henry Magoon, John MacBean and John Sinclair.
Descendants of these men should contact the Exeter Historical Society for more information!
