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.

Thanks for the Civil War reference on the Wood profile. I tried to dig a bit deeper into but couldn't find that conclusive link, still I think its strong enough for a qualified mention on that profile.

Thanks again for changing the Virginia Category. Regarding African American ancestry, I’all just have to wait and see how the REED surname project goes. I have been doing my searches on and need to update my”WikiTree.” I know that a few years ago some pine suggested an African American or similar category. Did that happen?

Regarding the REED, surname project, would you please create a category: Virginia REED, REID. That should have read Virginia, REED, REID NAME STUDY.

The Reid's on my family tree are all African American. Has anyone address the racial aspect of ancestors? I don't know if they were free or born into slavery in Virginia. I would like to see this as a part of the search, but I don't know how that would be categorized.

Hey Joelle!

I think the issues with Margaret Templeton may be a mess. I think you might be better helped by Jack Templeton as I believe she is in his lines. I think I became manager because I corrected the LNAB via a merge. Jack should have the correct information for you. Give Jack a shout and re-initiate the merge please.

I approved your request just let me know if you like manager status. Billie
