The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan
families back home. Many Scots even fought against England
in the American War of Independence
to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them: John Roberton who arrived in Philadelphia in 1829.
