Battle of Dunbar Prisoners Gravesite Found

Post by morrisondna » Wed Sep 02, 2015 5:03 pm

Here is an interesting link to a study of graves of Scottish prisoners taken to Durham, England, after the Battle of Dunbar. Some Scottish survivors of the battle and imprisonment were sent to Boston and eventually regained their freedom. I don't know of any Morrisons or Gilmores among the prisoners, but my sons and grandchildren are descendants of a John Hamilton who turned up in Boston about this time. Other Morrison descendants may find connections here as well.
