I am looking for my Great Grandfather, John McRae. He lived in Montgomery, Alabama and he had a daughter named Florence Mae McRae born in 1877 in Pronto, AL. Unfortunately, I don't know anything else, except she had Kermit Seals McRae, Sr. born in 1905 in Lousiville, AL, because John McRae wouldn't let her marry the man she became pregnant from, who was supposedly a Tomlin. I want to find out more about John McRae and where he is from and trace that lineage. If anyone can help me, please write me.

The following replies have been posted in response to the above query. They are sorted chronologically according to the time of receipt, with the most recent at the end of the page.
Your ancestor appears to have been John H. McRae (1850--1909). He married Amanda Seals 14 Dec 1876 in Barbour Co., AL. He was the son of Alexander Keene McRae (b. 20 Jun 1825, Anson Co., NC) and his wife Winnifred Jones. Alexander Keene McRae, in turn, was the son of John R. McRae (c. 1785--c. 1867) or John McRae (Richmond) of Barbour Co., AL, but formerly of Anson Co., NC and before that, of Richmond Co., NC. Alexander was John's eldest son by his second wife, Comfort Keene (1794--1860). John R. McRae's father was Alexander McRae (Little) of Richmond Co., NC and his wife Sarah. Beyond that I cannot tell you at this time. I happen to know two fellows who are relatively closely related to you. Let me know and I will pass on their contact information to you. My e-mail address is .
