Did You Know?

  • 1 Agnes was from Scotland, thus the name Agnes of Glasgow. Her last name has been lost to history.
  • 2 Agnes was following her true love, Lieutenant Angus McPherson, a British soldier.
  • 3 She stowed away on a ship hoping to find Lt. McPherson in the Colonies.
  • 4 Stories say that the names of the cities in Colonial America confused Lt. McPherson. He was very likely in Charleston, instead of Camden, when Agnes’ ship docked.
