Spam on the list
I am the list owner. I checked the member list for the spammer,
aj_2001@..., and did not see this person listed. I do not know how
they were able to post on our group. I filed a complaint with Yahoo. I
hope the problem will be permanently fixed.
Meanwhile, let's get this list working! I have not been posting because
my email address has changed. I think I have resolved that now.
My Scottish ancestor was Daniel Cone. The family story is that he was taken
prisoner at the Battle of Dunbar and sent to the colonies. We have not
found his name on any ship passenger list, however. There is a Daniel McHoe
on the John and Sara, but they were prisoners taken at the Battle of
Worcester. Our Daniel popped up in Haddam Connecticut. His death record
states that he was born in Edinburgh in 1626, but I have not been able to
find a birth record. I saw a reference to a parish record on the internet,
but have not followed up on it yet.
What is your interest in Scottish prisoners? Please post your story.
