It is my understanding that my ancestors where from Scotland even though I've not yet been able to trace their origins as of yet to date. Would love any clues that might help.

John D Bell (21Sep1808-16Aug1842) son of John Bell and Ann Armstrong married Jane Rockliff (21Apr1808-21Aug1877). Traced to Liverpool, England.

James Cummins (3Aug1794-???) son of Abraham Cummins (5Dec1768-1828) and Seena (10Oct1771-1848) married Charity Roode (7Mar1797-???). James & Charity settled in Oswego, NY. His parents settled Augusta, Grenville/Leeds, Ontario, Canada.

Elizabeth Galloway (1Sep1868-19Oct1937). Was and indenture servant, and settled in Buffalo, NY. No other info known.

If any of these other names are Scottish would love that info also:
Farr, Roode/Rude/Rood, Armstrong, Fell, Rockliff.
