| My great grandmotherís maiden name was McCargar, which by its spelling alone indicates Irish origin, however, she made it clear to everyone in the family that she and her parents were staunch Presbyterians who came to Canada from Scotland via England. She married and lived most of her adult life in northern New York State not far from the Canadian border from around 1900 to the early 1960ís. Regrettably, nothing was ever written down or passed along regarding her history.
The family name doesnít trace back far at all. Iím curious if there are any McCargarís (or descendents of) amongst the Celtic Radio membership.
