Tour Scotland Video Misty Drive Around Village Of Johnny Cash Ancestry Strathmiglo Fife



Tour Scotland video of a misty drive around Strathmiglo village, the roots of Johnny Cash ancestry on visit to North Fife, Scotland. William Cash, from Strathmiglo, was a mariner who ferried Scottish immigrants to the New World. After a few trips, he decided to stay in the USA himself, and settled in Salem, Massachusetts. On one trip, he brought his nephew with him, also from Strathmiglo, and that nephew decided to stay as well. This was in the 1650s. The elder William Cash stayed in Salem, and became a prominent citizen, serving on a jury for a murder trial. The records for this trial, and William's last will and testament, still remain in the Salem town hall. The younger William Cash moved south, to Westmoreland County, Virginia and his descendants spread through Virginia, Georgia and Arkansas. The grandfather of Johnny cash, William Cash, settled in Arkansas. His youngest son, Ray Cash was born in 1897. The father of Johnny Cash was born in Kingsland, Arkansas.
