From Hawick, Roxburghshire, Scotland, in the spring of 1795 the family of Adam and Margaret Kedzie came to the United States, sailing from Greenock on the Clyde. After a brief stay in the city of New York the family settled in Stamford, Delaware County, New York.

In this family were four sons and four daughters. Two of the sons, George and Adam, lived and died in the place of their first settlement. The others removed – William to Michigan in 1823, and James to Ohio in 1838. The daughters married men by the name of Grant, Jones, Graham and Mabie, as recorded in the section on the genealogy.
