I am very interested in how the Celtic People got to the United States and what happend to them after they arrived.

I currently live in the original Irish neighbor hood in Indianapolis,IN although Spanish is probably more popular in my neighborhood now rather than Gaelic tongue.gif

My Scottish ancestors were Quakers and found it better to be members of The Society of Friends near Philadelphia than near Inverness ca. 1690 so they came to West Jersey.

HPD, I do not know much about Quaker Scots. Can you tell me more about them? What names were involved in this group?

Thanks,
Rory

A lot of celts settled in the Appalachian mountians. Not that it's hard to tell, many appalachians folk songs are obviously from ireland scotland or england

Most of my family were Quakers as well and I have it documented. Most came from England, but there were some who came from Ireland to seek a new life to be able to express the freedom of their religious beliefs.

Honestly, I don't know of any Scots who were Quakers. All English and some Irish. If I am wrong, free free to correct me as I come from a very strong Quaker background...Thanks! smile.gif

Most Scots were Presbyterian by nature!

This is a nice piece:

http://www.electricscotland.com/History/ca...and_scotsns.htm

This excerpt talks about Catholic and Presbyterian mix, which it's my impression you always find among scots:

By the end of the American Revolution in 1783, the poor economic situation in the Scottish Highlands (some factors of which included overpopulation in the crofting communities and the failure of the 1782 harvest) saw several tenants abandoning their land and emigrating to North America. In 1802, 400 Highland settlers landed in Sydney, this was the first direct voyage of emigrants from Scotland to Cape Breton. Almost all of these early settlers were Gaelic speaking and were a complete mix of Roman Catholics and Presbyterians. The Hector settlers in Pictou had been Presbyterian. From that time Catholic immigrants arriving in this port were often encouraged, by fellow Catholics, to join the larger concentrations of Catholics in Antigonish County or to move further east into Cape Breton where there was a relatively equal split of Catholic and Presbyterian Highland Scots.
