Scottish flag
Joelle (Colville) Colville-Hanson has Scottish Ancestors.


I have Scottish roots on both sides. The Colvilles who came to Illinois and Ohio in the 19th century. The Crawfords came much earlier to the Southern Colonies (17th and 18th centuries). I have ancestors who were pioneers, dirt-poor farmers, aristocrats and plantation owners who held enslaved people. I have ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War. I find the stories of all of them fascinating. I will often expand the tree way beyond my blood relatives because I find their stories so interesting.

I have just started a Colville Name Study. I am particularly interested in ancestors on my father's side who came from Kintyre, Scotland and founded a Scottish Settlement at Argyl.

Joelle (Colville) Colville-Hanson is a member of Clan Colville.
Joelle (Colville) Colville-Hanson is a member of Clan Crawford.

Hi Joelle, I saw your message about the Louisiana Families Project, and just wanted to let you know Jacqueline Girouard, who is in charge of it, is on vacation for a couple of weeks, without Wifi. She is very good about communication, so you can expect to hear from her in a couple of weeks. Thanks!

Hi Joelle, I've run into a small problem on ancestry. There are two profiles for Harriet Crawford both claiming the same parents- but different husbands. I match you on Ancestry DNA, and I was hoping that perhaps you might be able to help me figure it out. Complicating the matter is that both Andrew Crawford and his brother seemed to both have daughters named Harriet?
