ROBERTSON, ROBERT: Where in North Carolina might the ROBERTSON Families coming early from Scotland, I believe from Argyll, have settled? I believe our ROBERTSON Families came early to North Carolina, settling on the eastern coast area. I believe as early as 1715 or 1745. Might this be the area the Families settled? My grandfather ROBERT ROBERTSON, one of the youngest, if not the youngest, was born c.1833. No other member of this large family is known. Apparently ROBERT, one of a large family of boys, was orphaned at an early age. According to census records ROBERT's parents too were born in North Carolina. ROBERT and CATHERINE A. GARBER married September 3, 1859, Douglas County, Illinois. One son was born in Illinois, five more sons were born in Indiana before the family settled in southeastern Colorado where ROBERT died April 8, 1905. Any help would be very much appreciated. Mabel I. Robison, 2235 Juntura Ct. S., Salem, OR 97302-2222.

I have the following lines: BARNWELL, BYRD, STRICKLAND, RUSSELL, WHITE, WATKINS and WEAVER. I believe that RUSSELL and STRICKLAND might possibly be Scottish. Am I correct? I am quite interested in the RUSSELL Family, since my great-grandfather married in Hall County, Georgia, in 1824 to MARTHA RUSSELL and his brother married a MARY RUSSELL. I think they came to Georgia from South Carolina. I would love to hear from anyone who could help me with information about them. Ms. Marion E. Watkins, 1434 Hawthorne Way, East Point, GA 30344-1749.

There was a woman born probably late 1880's - 1900, name of VERTA MAY TROGDON. She was a midget and, as such, worked in the circus. I am thinking she was born down Missouri way though not positive. I do not know what circus she worked for. I have seen a picture of the circus barn which promotes "May, the Midget." She eventually married a fellow named HAROLD SMITH. My question: Anything available on circus(es) and which (names) circuses she worked with? If you have any information, please let me hear from you. Kenneth R. Johnson, CDC #K05791, Bldg. 481L - RM 64, P. O. Box 3481 - 8800, 4001 King Avenue, Corcoran, CA 93212-8309.
