Dorothy Parshall BS: The Term 'Scotch-Irish' (42) RE: BS: The Term 'Scotch-Irish' 10 May 19


To confuse matters further:

I was raised in Pennsylvania. As a child, I was told, by someone, that Scotch-Irish were the descendants of the Scots who moved into Ireland and became (not very popular)land owners but were not above mixing with the local population, thus producing "Scotch-Irish". As I have never had very good auditory processing, I might have been told "Scots-Irish". It seemed there were "Scots-Irish"in the family tree.
