I am searching for anyone that has ties to a Goodlett ancestor. Robert Goodlett (b. 1720-1730 Scotland) may have left from Glasgow in mid 1730-1740s either unintentionally or otherwise. He supposedly arrived at Philadelphia, Penn. port and was apprenticed to a cabinet maker for his passage. We know he married Nancy Anne Middleton about 1750. They had a large family and later removed from Virginia to South Carolina late 1770s. Robert may have corresponded with his family as an adult.

red mail McPhersons of Port Glasgow
Isabella McPherson who, in the 1841 census, lived on Dockhead Street in Port Glasgow was my gr. gr. grandmother. It is possible that her maiden name was Nichol or Nichole. Her husband was John McPherson, who was a seaman, was not counted in the census. John took his family to the United States in about 1850. I am seeking any information on the parents and siblings of John McPherson and Isabella Nichol. The information I have on them from the US is attached. Please compare it to the McPhersons in your tree. Do I have any cousins in Scotland? John McPherson was born in Scotland in about 1802. He married Isabella "Belle” Nichol and they had 8 children: John, 1831; Robert, 1833; Helen, 1835; Daniel, 1839; George, 1842; Adam, 1845; Isabella, 1847 and Joseph, 1850. All the children except Joseph were born in Scotland. Joseph was born in England. The 1841 census of Scotland shows Isabella and the existing children living at Port Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Scotland. John (not shown) was probably at sea. The Iowa, USA census of 1851 shows Isabella and the children were at Kane, Pottawatomi Co., Iowa. John was probably at sea. The 1860 (Council Bluffs, Iowa) census lists John’s occupation as (sailor). In a 1891 book, “Biographical History of Pottawattamie Co.”, a description of John’s daughter Helen’s marriage to S. G. Underwood reads: “Mr. Underwood was married March 13, 1856 to Miss Helen McPherson, a native of Scotland, daughter of Captain John McPherson, a prominent citizen of Council Bluffs and Belle (Nichole) McPherson, a native of Scotland The 1870 census of the family lists: John 67, Isabella 61, John 38, Robert 35, George 26 and Joseph 19. Isabella “Belle” Nichol was born in Scotland in about 1811. She married John McPherson and had 8children. (See above) Thank You and Best Regards, Gary

red mail Tarbet /Tarbot Family of Port Glasgow
My great great grandmother, Margaret Ann Tarbet/Tarbot was possibly born in Laigh Auchinleck area in 1830. It is assumed that her parents were James Tarbet and Margaret Shaw, and that she was baptised in Port Glasgow according to parish records. She immigrated to Ontario, Canada some time in the 1840's where she married Andrew Buchanan. Ann was likely closely related to Margaret Tarbet, born about 1801, who married Peter Buchanan in Lochwinnoch before coming to Ontario. Also, she was closely connected to James Tarbet who was born about 1811, single; and Ann Tarbet, born about 1806, both of whom lived with the family. We assume they were uncle and aunt of Margaret Ann. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
