Migration of the Caskie family to the New World and Oceana


The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making.

In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them:
