c1750Robert Williamson married Mary ....He Rossmore, widow emigrated to CanadaHello Rosemary et al. We share the Williamson connection, I am very sure. My line came to Canada in the 1830’s from Rossmore. Robert Williamson , 3rd great grandfather had died, but his widow Mary and 7 grown children immigrated. M y2nd gr. grandfather was Richard Williamson b c 1800. There was a second Richard Williamson in the Ontario area identified as a cousin. I do believe this is from the Brahalish line. I have seen a photograph of a Robert Williamson , police man of Rochester NY who bears a strong resemblance to a great aunt of mine. my email is marlier at iCloud dot com if you are interested in further yarning.
