It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Knox 1

: Knox of Ranfurlie Ranfurly
1. Adam de Knocks a temp Alexander II who r. 1214-1249
A. Joannis de Knox a temp Alexander II who r. 1214-1249
The connection between this Johannis and the Uchtred who was alive in the time of King James II has so far been found only in BIFR1976. At least one of the other sources suggests that this connection has not been fully proved.

m Agnes Lyle dau of Lord Lyle
MacFarlane inserts here another generation, an Uchtred Knox who married Janet Fleming of the family of Barrochar. BIFR1976 shows such a Janet as wife of the following Uchtred's brother George rather than his mother. We follow BIFR1976 not least because Crawfurd confirms that Janet Fleming's husband was George.

i John Knox
BIFR1976 confirms that, although some sources have suggested that this John was the famous Reformer, he was not.
ii William Knox minister of Cockpen had issue
The exact connectio of John Knox, the famous preacher and church reformer, with this family has yet to be established. Crawfurd says he was "a grandnephew of this family" which means his grandfather was a younger brother of one of the lairds. If so, he may fit in here his grandfather may even have been the above George. This connection has not been confirmed.
