I have been trying to make a connection back to Scotland, and I think it is Nathaniel Carruthers.  I have never been able to place him in Scotland.  Today I ran across some information that his father was William Nathaniel (or Nathaniel William) Carruthers.  From this info I discovered that the latter Nathaniel could be the connection I have been looking for.  He was born in Scotland and died in North Carolina.  Perquimans and Craven Counties were mentioned.  I have info of where I can confirm some of what I've written here, but it is in a library in CT.  I plan to go, but right now I don't have the time.

I have some marriages that were here in North Carolina, but sometimes the last name is misspelled so it may be hard to recognize the name but it is the name Carruthers, Sometimes it is spelled Carothers, Corothers. or just Carruth. But I think it is the same name. Let me know if you are interested in these marriages, they were all in the 1700's . I can get you the marriages from Scotland if you would like me to. Nancy
