Re: family history


You really need to get Pete Cummings' booklet "Descendants of
George Sinclair, 4th Earl of Caithness, for 10 Generations."  It
will fill in a _lot_ of gaps for you! 

I think that the John Sinclair you refer to is John of Exeter,
New Hampshire. He is an ancestor of mine as well. See
http://kingcrest.com/sinclair/sinker_history.html-ssi for a lot
of details about John. From there you can get the information on
how to order Pete's booklet by going to the bibliography page.

Good luck and Happy Easter.

Best regards,
Paul Sinclair--
