Sickness and poverty hounded travelers to North America, but those who made it were welcomed with land and opportunity.

Early passenger and immigration lists reveal many Scottish settlers bearing the name McKendree: Daniel and James Hendrie arrived in Philadelphia in 1858; Joe Hendry settled in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Hendry settled in Barbados in 1669; Robert Hendry settled in New Hampshire in 1719.
