Merle: Thanks for the responses.
I realize that ship/passenger records are very spotty in
the 16 & 1700s. I have found a few, particularly for my
German immigrants, and my immigrant WEAVER from
Shropshire who arrived at Jamestown aboard the 'Bonny Bess'
in 1623. I just about gave up on finding any helpful records
for ships from Ireland and Scotland years ago, but thought some
new information might have surfaced.
You are right about the Presbyterians. To say the early church
was a bit fragmented is an understatement. There is a fairly large
repository of Presbyterian records at Montreat College near
Asheville, NC, but they don't cover much of the church beginnings
in SCT. Would that the early churches had been as
diligent in their record keeping as the Moravians who settled
the area where I live in the mid-1750s.
The archivist at Glasgow U has been very helpful, and provided
a list of several WITHERSPOONs, but none in my line.
I will keep digging, and hoping.
