Migration of the McMannon family to the New World and Oceana
Many who arrived from Scotland
settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would go on to become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence
, many settlers who remained loyal to England
went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Their descendants later began to recover the lost Scottish heritage through events such as the highland games that dot North America in the summer months.
