sharing my photographs of the the beauty of western North Carolina.
Like many other NC settlers, my mother's ancestors were "Scotch-Irish" but they never considered themselves Irish for some reason. But they all had red hair.
The Appalachian area had a large immigrant population of Scotch-Irish. As I recall they filtered into the area around the mid 1700s which resulted in a beautiful culture of music and folkways remaining in Appalachia until this very day. -- barbara
