Our Scottish Roots - Theories and Guesses



Our son is attending the highland games this year, and he wanted to know if we have any Scottish roots.  My answer was Yes!  And then I realized that it's more assumption than proven surety.  So here is what I know, and what I suspect.  Hopefully someday I will be able to prove more!

Our DNA tests, both mine and Dan's, show a good bit of "England, Wales, and Northwestern Europe.  This does indeed included Scotland, but it is not conclusive.

This area makes up 50-64% of my DNA.  My moms results are similar, slightly less for her. (My Follin and Hurst lines are through my father, they are though to be Irish and British...)

It makes 37-47% of Dan's DNA.

By Surname:

Hutchinson (Dan's Maternal Line) - Reported to be Scottish, other researchers state that Joseph Hutchinson's parents lived in Scotland, But I have not yet documented this myself.

McLoughlan (Heather's Maternal Line)  - There are mentions of Ishi McCloughan  being Scottish - but I have no documentation.  The man is a bit of a mystery all around.  The name could just as easily be Irish.

McKean (Dan's Maternal Line)- It's possible this line is Scottish, but I suspect it is Irish.  Our McKean Line.

Strayhorn (Heather's Maternal Line) - Again thought to be Scottish, but could be Irish!  Unproven either way.




This is a clan map of Scotland, none of our known Surnames appear on it.

"The bulk of Henry S.Furry's 1910 book- "History of Johonnes Furry, (or Forrer) and His Descendants to End of the Eight Generation", is likely correct. However his assumption that his John Furry/Forrer of Berks Co.,Pa was one and the same as Johannes Forrer arriving in 1727, is incorrect. Johannes, of 1727, was Mennonite, lived and died in Lancaster Co.,PA.. None of his children per;"Biographical Annals of Lancaster County" settled in Berks Co,PA either. The Biographical Annals of Lanc." lists Johannes and some of his descendants as Mennonite. As does Richard W. Davis in his "Emigrants, Refugees and Prisoners".  Likely John Furry naturalized 1755 in Phila.."The Biographical Annals of Lanc.." and R.W.Davis, indicate that Johannes (1727) did not go to Berks Co., but none of his children did either. John Jr. inherited farm in Hempfield. Son Daniel inherited part of the same farm. Jacob inherited farm in Hellam Twp, York Co.. Abraham- also rec'd half. David inherited 'Chestnut Hill' farm (sold and moved to M.D.). Henry inherited a mill. Henry later purchased brother Abraham's land in York "

===============================================
It's POSSIBLE, but unproven, that this line connects to Heather's Maternal Forney line as well.

Henry Forney 1813-
Notes from another researcher:
"I did a little digging in my data files and I believe the Henry Forney you are looking for is the son of John Forney and Elizabeth Bixler. John Forney was the son of John Forney AKA John Furry who apparently arrived in America in 1727. He located in Tulpehocken Township, Berks County PA, on a tract of 346 acres of land. He had two sons and two daughters, namely: Michael, John, Rosina (wife of Henry Berger) and Catharine (wife of Leonard Emerich).

Tradition states that John Forney and his wife Elizabeth Bixler settled on the west side of the Susquehanna River. They had four sons and two daughters. The Sons were: John, Jonas, Lawrence and Henry. The first three upon their return from a grist-mill at Sunbury, Pa., found to their horror that the Oneida Indians had killed and scalped their parents and two sisters, and also burned down the house and taken a horse with them. The youngest son, Henry, the Indians took with them to Canada, where he was afterward found. The three brothers buried their parents and sisters under an apple tree and went to Reading, PA.
I have nothing more on Jonas; Lawrence Forney married a Zingmaster. They had at least 8 children. One of the children was Christina Forney born September 02, 1802, she married Charles Druckenmiller; John Forney also no further information; The youngest was Henry Forney as stated was taken by the Indians. The source for the tradition is from a book titled “Historical and biographical annals of Columbia and Montour counties PENNSYLVANIA” published 1915.

The premise that Henry was raised by “strangers” would seem to confirm the tradition"

HISTORY of JOHONNES FURRY, (OR FORRER) AND HIS DESCENDANTS TO THE END OF THE EIGHTH GENERATION AS COMPILED BY HENRY S. FURRY 1910-11 Reading, PA.



Chapter One

On October 16, 1727, Johannes Furrey (or Forrey), and forty-six Palatines, with their families, about two hundred persons embarked on the ship, Friendship ,of Bristol, John Davis, Master, from Rotterdam, last from Cows, from whence the ship sailed on June 20th, 1727, and landed at Philadelphia.

This John Furrey went to Tulbehocken, Berks County, Pa., and got a land warrant for 346 acres, October 11th, 1744. This land had been granted to a man by the name of Hoobler who forfeited his warrant.

The patent was granted under the hand of James Hamilton Esq., Lieutenant Governor of the State, under the great seal of Pennsylvania.

The patent is certified to be recorded at Philadelphia, now at Harrisburg, in Patent Book A, Volume 17, page 374, dated May 12th, 1752.

This Johannes Furrey (or Forrer) had located about three miles northwest of Womelsdorf, Berks County, Pa., on the road leading from Womelsdorf to Mt. Aetna. This land is now owned by Dr. Horace F.

CORRECTION TO ORIGINAL TEXT:
Found on an Ancestry message board - 

"The bulk of Henry S.Furry's 1910 book- "History of Johonnes Furry, (or Forrer) and His Descendants to End of the Eight Generation", is likely correct. However his assumption that his John Furry/Forrer of Berks Co.,Pa was one and the same as Johannes Forrer arriving in 1727, is incorrect. Johannes, of 1727, was Mennonite, lived and died in Lancaster Co.,PA.. None of his children per;"Biographical Annals of Lancaster County" settled in Berks Co,PA either. The Biographical Annals of Lanc." lists Johannes and some of his descendants as Mennonite. As does Richard W. Davis in his "Emigrants, Refugees and Prisoners". Also confirmed by a descendant/researcher a few years ago, who's name escapes me.If memory serves me at all, Henry S.Furry never makes any ref. to his Berks Co. Furry's as being Mennonite in origin. Research continues as to who was Henry Furry's emigrant. Likely John Furry naturalized 1755 in Phila.."The Biographical Annals of Lanc.." and R.W.Davis, indicate that Johannes (1727) did not go to Berks Co., but none of his children did either. John Jr. inherited farm in Hempfield. Son Daniel inherited part of the same farm. Jacob inherited farm in Hellam Twp, York Co.. Abraham- also rec'd half. David inherited 'Chestnut Hill' farm (sold and moved to M.D.). Henry inherited a mill. Henry later purchased brother Abraham's land in York "


Chapter Two

Some years ago all of the original building, except the springhouse, which was about 500 feet away, burned down. These buildings were the old-fashioned log buildings, but now new and modern buildings are erected in their places. The original tract is now divided into four different farms.

There are a number of Furrys in lancaster, York and different other Counties in the State, and as they all originated from the Palatines, which is a section in Germany, there is no doubt that the Furrys' (or however they may spell their name), ancestors came from the same place in Germany.

Ten persons bearing the name immigrated from the Palatines and Hugenots , which is a County in France, close to Germany.

In years gone by people were not so exact in spelling names and there no doubt accounts for rhe different ways of spelling this name.

The following persons immigrated to America in the following years:

Johannes Forrer, or Furrer 1727
Lanhart Furrer 1739
Hans Casper Furer 1747
Jacob Furrer 1750
Christian Furrer 1750
John Rudolph Ferrer 1752
Christian Fuehrer 1754
Daniel Fuehrer 1754
Johannes Forrer 1754
Peter Farry 1768

What makes it certain that this branch of the Furrys is from the one that came to America in 1727, is because the first land taken by that name, in Berks County, was on October 11th, 1744, as there were no other Johannes Furrey (or Forrer), that came to America between 1727 and 1744, and we also know that this branch comes from Berks County, Pa.

We find that prior to the year 1716 a family by the name of Ferrie or in German (Vere) was living in a town called Lindan, not far from the River Rhine in the kingdonm of France. This family consisted of himself, his wife, three sons and three daughters.

The names of the sons were Daniel, Philip and John; those of the daughters were Catherine, Mary, and Jane. Their religion was Calvanistic. The husband died and the widow with the rest of the family immigrated to America and first located in New York State. Later they moved to Lancaster County, Pa., where she died in the year 1716 and is buried in Conestoga Township, Lancaster County, Pa. Her maiden name was Mary Waronbower

We find that quite a number of prominent people have sprung up from this family. First their name was Ferrie, then Forry, and now Furry. We also find that some became ministers of the gospel, some doctors and some attorneys. They claim relationship in America with the Furrys from Germany.

The Furry family is an old and prominent family; we find that some have taken an active part in the Revolutionary war and also in the war of 1812. Some also took an active part in State affairs. They can be traced all over the United States. It is impossible to give an account of when the old people died and where they were buried.

These are the descendents of Johannes Furrey (or Forrer) and his wife, whose name we were not able to ascertain. As near as can be found to the eighth generation, as to the date of births, deaths and marriages, it is impossible to get them all. In some cases there were no records kept and in others they were lost and can not be found.

This Johannes Furrey (or Forrer), was blessed with two sons and two daughters, Michael, John, Rosina ,wife of Henry Berger and Catherine, wife of Leonard Emrick. In 1765 the land was granted to his son, Michael, and on September 9th, 1765, the land was released by his brother, John.

From 1774 to 1781, during the Revolutionary war, Michael was Captain in the sixth batallion of Pennsylvania Militia and was afterward appointed Major of the same batallion.

In 1776-77, Michael Furry was appointed assessor of Berks County. His family consisted of four sons and one daughter.

First, George
Second, Peter Michael
Third, John
Fourth, Daniel
Fifth, a daughter who was married to a Mr. Weaver

Michael, son of Johannes, was born May 8th, 1732, and died November 15, 1798, at the age of 66 years. His wife, whose name we were unable to learn, was born January 19,1724 and died November 1799, at the age of 75 years; they are both buried at the Reed's Church burial place, near Stouchsburg, Berks County.

In the year 1782 Michael Geiger, Joseph McIntosh, John Furry, brother of Michael, Thomas Wilkinson, George Hunsicker and Conrad Wampold, from Reading, Berks County, with their families, took an Indian trail across the Blue, Broad, Locust, and Little Mountains. They traveled on horseback and came to the Susquehanna river to a place called Hughesburg, now called Catawissa. About that time a tribe of Oneida Indians established a settlement at the old site of Lapackpittonstown, greatly to the annoyance of the settlers.

Thomas Wilkinson aroused their displeasure by interfering with their fishing operations. On one occasion he was compelled to seek shelter in the river, and being unable to swim he was obliged to be contented by wading. Every time he raised his head above water he was a target for the Indians, as they would fire at him. He afterwards said that he was only measuring the depth of the river and was given the name of Tom Gauger.

Chapter Three

John Furry, with his family, settled on the west side of the river. His family consisted of four sons and two daughters:

First; John
Second; Jonas
Third; Lawrence
Fourth; Henry

The names of the daughters are not known.

John, Jonas, and Lawrence, then young men, went to Sunbury to a grist mill one day, and as they returned home, found to their horror, that a band of Oneida Indians had killed both their parents and sisters, and scalped them.

They had also burned down the house and took with them the horse and youngest brother, Henry, and had gone to Canada, where he was afterward found.

The three brothers buried their parents and sisters under an apple-tree and also buried their farming implements and returned to Reading, Berks County.

The settlers were very much annoyed by the Indians,in fact so much that they were all compelled to flee for their lives with the exception of Thomas Wilkinson.


Sometime after that, Jonas Furry left Reading and went to Washington County, Pennsylvania; John Furry left Reading and went to Lebanon County and married Polly Spangler. He raised a family of ten children as follows:

Chapter Eight

This extract shows that the Furry's have also taken an active part in our Civil War.

W. J. Furry, Seventh Term, was one of the last to leave Andersonville. He and his comrades fell in line facing the gate and were marched to the railroad where they were piled on an old train and run up to Macon, Ga. They were not taken from the train, but run back over the road, passing within sight of the walls of Andersonville to the end of the railroad at Albany. From there they were marched to Thomasville, a distance of fifty miles. They must have presented a striking appearance with their tattered rags, filth and weakness. Most of them were without shoes. Comrade Furry carried the meals which he had drawn for rations, in an old pants leg. From Thomasville they took a train for about 75 miles to Lake City, Florida, where they were kept about a week and then shifted to Baldwin. Here they were dumped in the pine forest after which they were left free and told to make their way, as best they could, to Jacksonville, Florida, where the union lines were. The last of the mournful parade of living skeletons arrived at Jacksonville as the twelve o'clock gun was fired. Furry himself weighed but 94 pounds, and he was a good specimen of the thirteen hundred.
