Looking for my Dad's ancestors (Nisbet, Nesbitt, Nesbit)

Query by sharon47

I was told that my greatgrandparents changed the spelling of their last name (Nisbet)when they came to the United States. I'm not sure of the spelling, but I know it was changed because of , well, questionable characters in the family. I would really like to find out who they were. I do know that my grandfathers name was Albert Nisbet, married to Rosa May Pittelko. They had 2 children, Dorothy and my dad Garland A.(Dad was born in 1920 and is deceased) My mothers name was Martha Lee (Delph), born Feb. 6, 1922. My mom's family is also very complicated. She was raised by her aunt and uncle. I'm still having difficulty finding any info on her real parents. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Does your Delph line connect to any from Harlan KY?

Hi Sharon
My great-great grandfather was Thomas Nisbet, married to Jane Veitch. They went to the USA in about 1856, changed the surname to Nesbit. Their son was Robert, daughter Mary (who married a Beach). If this helps, my family tree is on Ancestry.com
I know nothing further about Thomas in USA as my great grandfather (his son John) returned to Scotland and I am descended from that line. There were also Veitches who went to the USA. I'd love to know more about "questionable characters", especially if it involves my gx2 grandfather. I have an idea he was a bigamist from some records I've seen. Any help?
