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.
