Tracing Lineage to Scotland

As we planned our Highland wedding, we traced Hugh's lineage to Scotland, allowing us to join Clan Lindsay officially...

Hugh's mother...
Catherine Lindsay was born in Anderson, South Carolina and married his father Hugh Staples Sr.

Catherine Lindsay's father was John Neely Lindsay- married to Etta Mae Henderson

John Neely Lindsay's father was Robert Burns Lindsay- married to Fannie Pricilla Neely

Robert Burns Lindsay's father was William Lawrence Lindsay- married to Mary Elizabeth Young...

In our research we found that William Lawrence Lindsay, a tailor by trade, immigrated to the United States from Dundee, Scotland in the mid-1700s... he married Mary and had children... the records we were able to locate showed two children, born in Laurens County, South Carolina... son, Robert Burns Lindsay, aged 3, and daughter Helen, aged 12... William listed relatives back in Scotland... in Dundee, Kinrosshire, and Linburgh

We were officially members of the Lindsay Clan!
