Christmas 2007:

Dear Clans Folk,

 

Yes it is that time of the year again. Lorraine and I would just like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas full of laughter, happiness and a Happy New Year with lots to look forward to in 2008. This year has been a very busy time for us, not just at work, with our invitation to the Queen’s garden party, the birth of our beautiful granddaughter Kayleigh, and the wedding of David and Melissa. Also a visit from your President Faith with clan and family - it was nice to show them around the large garden and talk face to face rather than on the phone. Christmas for us this year will be more special with the addition to our family, and Santa might even visit us, as we have been very good. We hope Santa is good to you all, so once again Merry Christmas! Our thoughts are with you.

 

Aye Chief John & Lorraine

 

Have you been good?, then we have a message for you straight from the North Pole.

Special thanks to J.R. Arthur. Here are some of his links:

Original Mill Prong Video by Luke McNeill    lmcneill12@nc.rr.com

 

Mill Prong, a two-story Federal style house, retains the architectural quality, which sets it above the other plantation seats in the portion of Robeson County that became Hoke County in 1911. The plantation, with its manor house and cemetery, also retains the important historical association, which ally it with the most prominent Highland Scots families in the upper Cape fear region. Built in the late 18th century by John Gilchrist (1740 –1802), an important political and social leader of the community, the house is one of the few remaining houses known to have been built by an immigrant Highland Scot.  Blake K Tyner
