Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from A Sketch of the Munro Clan: Also of William Munro Who, Deported From Scotland, Settled in Lexington, Massachusetts, and of Some of His Posterity
In 1898 was published in Inverness Scotland, a "History of the Munros," by Alexander Mackenzie M. J. I., a gentleman distinguished not only for his elaborate histories and genealogies of no less than eight of the leading Scottish clans and for his other historical writings but also for his splendid work before Parliament and before certain of its commissions on behalf of the crofters of Scotland. Largely through his exertions was passed the Crofters Act giving security of tenure and compensation for improvements to a class of small tenantry whose sufferings and disabilities had been if possible worse than those of the tenantry of Ireland in their darkest days.
Learning that this "History of the Munros" was in preparation I entered into correspondence with Mr. Mackenzie., and was so far fortunate as to induce him to include in his genealogy as many of the American branches of the Munro Clan as the limited time before publication would permit us to follow up. His untimely death on the 22d of January., 1898, and the long illness preceding his lamented decease., made it impossible for him to realize this plan farther than, with little time and still less experience in matters genealogical., had been able under his direction to carry it. Therefore it is that the only American branch of the clan to appear in Mr. Mackenzie's History is that of William Munro., the first settler of the name in Lexington., Massachusetts.
