Hugh McMillan was born 1720, in Rasharkin, Antrim, Ireland. He was married twice. I have the name, I think, of one of the wives. I don't know if she is the 1st or 2nd wife. Her name was Mable Crawford. Hugh McMillan may be the son of the Rev. Hugh McMillan who fled Scotland because of religious persecution, migrating to Rasharkin, Antrim, Ireland.
Hugh McMillan, b. 1720, in Rasharkin, Antrim, Ireland was probably the father of the following children:
Henry W. McMillan, Old Barnwell District , SC
Major James William McMillan may have been in the Chester District, SC & was in the Old Barnwell District by 1830
Daniel McMillan - Chester District, SC, Kershaw District,SC, Old Camden District. Daniel received a Rev. War Pension on 7 Jun 1832, in Chester District, SC. This pension is on file at the State Archives, Columbia, SC
Daniel was born 1752, in Antrim, Ireland. This information on Daniel, I obtained from his pension papers.
Daniel McMillan married ca 1780/1781 to Jean Thompson who d. in Chester Co., SC
He ran away from home, when he was 16, because he didn't like his father's 2nd wife & came to the Americas about 1768-1769. Rumors are that his brother Hugh McMillan came with him. His brother may be the Rev Hugh McMillan who migrated from SC to Ohio.
William McMillan, b. ca 1761, in London England, d. 4 Aug 1894, in Chester District, SC, m. Jane Walker, in Ireland.
Alexander McMillan who d. 1809, in Chester District Co.,SC, m. Margaret (?) Alexander could have been in the Old Barnwell District, SC & moved to the Chester District, SC by the time the SC 1790 Census was taken.
Martin McMillan who I think also d. & is buried in Chester District, SC
Hugh McMillan who I think maybe the Rev Hugh McMillan who migrated to Ohio???
Mary McMillan who may have m. a (?) Thompson. I am not sure if she was in Chester District, SC or not or in the Americas
David McMillan - no data
Rumors in our family were that three McMillan brothers migrated to South Carolina before the Revolutionary War. These brothers were Daniel, Henry W. & James William McMillan. I believe that as many as seven brothers, maybe eight brothers came to South Carolina. I don't know if all of the brother came before the Rev. War.
We know that Pvt. Daniel McMillan was a Rev. Soldier. It is indicated that his brothers Henry W. & James William McMillan were Majors. James "Jim" William McMillan was referred to as Major William McMillan. He signed his will as William McMillan, in the will he is referred to as Major McMillan. His will is in the Old Barnwell District, SC. I was looking for the will of Major James McMillan, at the time I didn't know his middle name was William. Some people confuse him with the will of my 3 g-grandfather James McMillan of the Old Barnwell District. Some people confuse William McMillan's will as being the will of his brother Henry W. (whose middle name is also William)McMillan
I would like to get in contact with descendants of any of the above people I have a good bit of infomation on the above mentioned people.
