National Tartan Day

Clan Ferguson Tartan

Clan Houston Tartan

Tartans of my two primary Scottish roots originating from the paternal side of my family tree. John Ferguson, born 1730 in Maryland, probably the son of Duncan (Dunkin)Ferguson, a Scottish Jacobite, who was transported to Maryland in 1716 as an slave-rebel.

Second, Robert R Houston, who arrived on American shores in 1659 from Scotland. He descends from a long line of Houstons orginating in Houston, Scotland.

  1. Houston? I've a few lurking in my background, as well, though I believe they came to America from Ireland. Love the tartans.
