I'm a member of the NEHGS, so I know what their journal is. The reason I said they don't recognize ALL of the Scots prisoners of war is that they do not have any listing of the men who came on the "Unity", which is the ship that James Adams was on. I have tried to get some help from Harvard University which has a number of holdings from Saugus; however, one has to be a student of Harvard to gain access to their Saugus documents!
