We were not invading.  We were liberating the country.

The end came at Culloden Moor, after which Scots were locked up in droves. Many of them were sent to America, as was Alexander McDonald, whose son John served with John Cooley in 1755. John Pedder, also on the 1755 list, had also been an indentured servant. I suspect there were others. Richard Goode was of the planter class, his family having been in Virginia for decades. I have often wondered if John had been bound out to the Goodes, but that's just mindless speculation. I've found nothing to support it. John Cooleys appear on various ship lists for reason of transportation. I have them listed at http://ancestraldata.com/ahnentafel/256/#imm -Michael > I have a Calhoun ancestor that was captured in Scotland about 1650 in a > war > with England, taken back to England and sold as an indentured servant to > some brick company in Mass.  Anyone explored this possibility.  That could > cause confusion about English or Scotch. > Jane > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Patrick Cooley" <dvrsyfyd7_at_yahoo.com> > To: "John Cooley Mailing List" <undisclosed.recipients_at_johncooley.net> > Sent: Sunday, October 02, 2011 3:33 PM > Subject: Re: Another "English descent" reference > > >> Something close to this has to fit.
