> I have Oliphants from Scotland that first settled in Indiana and then
> moved to Texas. Here's what little I know.
> In July, 1835, William S. or M. Oliphant emigrated from the Port of
> Greenock to America. He was born May 30, 1813 in Dunfermaline,
> Scotland. Per Old Parochial Registers, he was christened August 22,
> 1813 at the town of Scoonie, Fife County, Scotland. Parents' names were James Oliphant and Ann Mcallum. I also found that James Oliphant
> married Agnes Mccallum 15 Aug 1812 in Scoonie, Fife. I found a brother, James was born October 20, 1817 in Dupart. There are also other Oliphants born in Dupart but no parents were named. I had been told that William had an older brother which is why he came to America,
> because he would not inherit any of his father's lands. He was also supposed to have had a sister named Margaret.
> If you any related information on my Oliphants from Scotland, I would
> love to hear from you.
