The chronicles of the Killmon family reach back into Scottish history to an ancient tribe known as the Picts. The ancestors of the Killmon family lived at Kelman Hill, which is in the Cabrach in the county of Aberdeen.

Killmon Early Origins



The surname Killmon was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



The crossing to North America did not seem so great in comparison with the hardships many Scots endured at home. It was long, expensive, and cramped, but also rewarding. North America offered land and the chance for settlers to prove themselves in a new place. And many did prove themselves as they fought to forge a new nation in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of those Scots can now experience much of their once-lost heritage through the Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up across North America in the last century. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Killmon: George Kelman, who settled in Virginia in 1650; Henry Kelman, who settled in Philadelphia in 1773; as well as Margaret Kelman, who arrived in New York in 1822..
