Some Common Threads

These men are tied to two Scottish POW related documents which gives some credibility to their being Scottish POWs:

On the Iron Works Inventory List and Early Members of the Scots Charitable Society:
1. James ADAMS, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the Scots Charitable Society.
2. John CLARK, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the SCS.
3. Peter GRANT, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the SCS.
4. Andrew JAMESON, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the SCS.
5. Malcolm M’CALLUM, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the SCS.
6. George THOMPSON, made a donation on 6 Jan 1657 to the SCS.
So out of the 27 founding members of the Scots Charitable Society we find SIX of our Scots from the Iron Works Inventory. Had their indentures just ended?
