Migration of the Egelesghan family to the New World and Oceana

These settlers arrived in North America at a time when the east was burgeoning with prosperous colonies and the expanses of the west were just being opened up. The American War of Independence was also imminent. Some Scots stayed to fight for a new country, while others who remained loyal went north as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of them went on to rediscover their heritage in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic Scottish events. The Egelesghan were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Mr. Eagleson landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1768.
