I am searching for information regarding Jemima Franklin and her first husband Hugh Daniel McCoy or Daniel Hugh McCoy. Jemima was the daughter of John Franklin, Burke County, NC. Hugh/Daniel McCoy came to the American Colonies from Scotland during the Revolutionaly War to fight in the British army. He was wounded in what is now Burke County, NC and was taken to the home of John Franklin. After recovery from his wounds, he and Jemima were married. They had several children. One of their children was my gggg grandfather Daniel McCoy, b. 1787, Burke Co., NC. I am told that Hugh/Daniel McCoy left his home in NC to return to Scotland and either died at sea, died in Scotland or deserted the family.
None of the family was ever able to find out what happened.
I believe Jemima Franklin and Hugh/Daniel McCoy were born ca. 1765/1767.
I believe Jemima Franklin married twice after Daniel left but I do not know the names of her other spouses.
Any assistance in this family genealogy would be sincerely appreciated.
