John Macrae b.1733 Kintail Rosshire m.Elizabeth MacKenzie b.abt 1733 p/o Daniel Macrae b.1753 m. Margaret McDuffie b.1758 d/o John McDuffie b. 1737 m. Mary Pattison
According to the family bible the six of them immigrated to North Carolina , USA before 1779 as Daniel and Margaret married in Anson Co. NC Dec 6,1779. Daniel and Margaret's daughter, Isabella, is my ggggggrandmother m. Burwell Pittman in NC and traveled enmass to Mississippi in the early 1800s.
I thought maybe John was the s/o Hugh Macrae and Margaret MacLeod as according to "History of Clan Macrae" their son John "went to America in 1774" which would perfectly fit the timeline but, turns out THAT John Macrae went to Canada, alas!
Thanks in advance for any help. This has been a brick wall for years...Pati
