Scots-Texans of the past

This is too funny. I was looking at the area around Dallas on Google maps, and found that there is a city in Ellis County called Midlothian, which is also the name of the area around Edinburgh to the south and the historical government area in which Edinburgh is located (these days it’s a council area unto itself).

Although the Wikipedia page doesn’t mention it, Midlothian, TX is (not hugely surprisingly) named after Midlothian, Scotland. There are apparently four other Midlothians, one of which was definitely also named after the Scottish area. The others, it’s not clear.
