I am Charles Edward Miller, Jr. and I live with wife in Chesapeake, Virginia. My father was born in 1928 on the farm purchased by Jonathan Miller(Millar)in 1734 in Bertie County, NC near the town of Colerain. My grandfather was Duncan Miller and his wife was Essie Cowan. Her father was Charles Edward Cowan who was named after Prince Charles Edward Stewart. Through the Cowans, I am a second cousin once removed from artist Ralph Wolfe Cowan. My Miller ancestors were kinsmen to the MacFarlenes and descend from the Celtic Earls of Lennox. I had a Professor of Scottish Studies whose name was Dr. Charles Haws, a man who graduated with a PhD from Glasgow. I wonder if Dr. Cowan knows him. In any case, I am glad this sight exists.

My name is William Campbell. All I know is that my great great grandfather was born in the 1800's in North Carolina to Scottish parents. His father or grandfather was supposed to be the brother of the Duke of Argyll. Just wondering if anyone could help me out on this.

I have heard of the Campbells, and one of them founded the town of Colerain in Bertie County, North Carolina, a town named after Coleraine, Northern Ireland. I like the song "The Wee Town of Coleraine" that was sung by Burl Ives.
