Some of the pipers are great-great-grandchildren of Robert Barclay, who had been the Queen's Piper, then came to America and founded the Utah Pipe Band.
Our own Scottish heritage has been difficult trace; we have only the name of a Scottish ancestress who raised Paul's grandfather: Hannah Grahame. Laurel simplified things by marrying into a family of Utah Scots, the Leishmans of Cache Valley.
We know three of the dead who are our near neighbors across the street. One the grandfather of our son-in-law; the other the little child of a friend, his oldest son, little Kyle. The third is Dave Barclay, who taught Laurel and half the pipers in Utah.
P.S. In case you are reading off bloglines, there is a short video of the bagpipers in the actual blog.
