So for most of my life…and my parents life…we were under the impression (based on stories handed down) that we were of Scottish descent. Richie of the McIntosh clan.
Nein! Come to find out in the last 10 years…we’re of Swiss/German descent. And our ancestors landed here back in the mid 1700’s…and came to Cabarrus County.
My immediate family all from St. Louis moved here to Charlotte, NC in 1979 by way of Michigan. We had no idea at the time that we were returning to our ancestors ole’ turf.
This headstone is in Mt. Pleasant…just up the road from Charlotte.
