Researching the family of James Bothwell, stonemason married Mary Jane Rule 1833 County Armagh, Ireland- children: William Bothwell, stonemason married to Jessie Taylor McIndoe (McDougall) 1861 in Scotland. Family began in County Armagh where William may have been born. Four other children, Mary, married to David Dempster, John, married to Ellen Poolle, Robert and Thomas were all born in Scotland. Four other sons died. Family emigrated to the US where they wound up in New York and New Jersey. William had a son named James (also a stonemason) and a daughter, Janet. I believe William was the owner of the Ansonia Quarry in Ansonia CT. William and Jessie may have had another son, named William after his father.
