I am trying to find my Scottish roots. "James Mackenzie of Ross Shin or Ross Shire Scotland married Miss Jessie Stewart to them was born one son John Mackenzie on Jan 12, 1835 in Cromarty. At the age of 4 years his mother died and he went to live with his grandparents. Soon after his father married Elsie Gordan, but John stayed with his grandfather who was a blacksmith by trade. He tried to learn the trade, but did not like it. He saved his money and in 1854 at the age of 19 years he came to America with his father's sister, Anna Mackenzie to join her brother,
George MacKenzie. The ship named Neptune left Liverpool, England on the 2nd day of April 1854 and landed in New York on the 7th day of May a voyage of 37-1/2 days on water. John's grandfather worked in a place called Russeling when John left.
