hi evelyn, i am o. william mccrory. they called him pat! he is my gg grandfather. i have his family bible. it says he was born sc may1, 1829. census says 1825. civil war records say several dates, pension says 1825. I am beginning to believe 1825 is right. he married susan jackson. md sept16,1847 in thomasville al. i have his marriage lic. he fought in civil war-was wounded at franklin tenn. his brother thomas elmore was killed there. i have pat's war records and several items he used during the war - co. c seventh calvary, con. states of america. pat's family all came to al in the 1830's from lancaster co sc.pat was just a young boy his other borther was a.j. mccrory, called ajax. the link missing in his entire line is names of his father and mother. others disagree on some things about pat but thats alright. I have been to pat,s old house to visit his granddaughter dozens of times. i have sat on his furrniture and read all the old papers and such that was boxed up in the closets. i have all the information on his entire line from him to present day.nellie, who used to live in his house is now dead. her father was william patrick mccrory,jr. they called him billy pat. lets look way back-hugh mccrory b.1705 md elisabeth jane elmore. their son captain thomas mccrory md hannah crawford. one record i have says thomas was born 1732, another says 1735. thomas and family came to america july 1, 1775. they set up house in nc., then his son thomas jr., aka col. thomas mccrory of the war of 1812. this thomas was b 1766 and married rachel shelby liggett who was b in 1772. he and wife first lived across the nc line in lancaster co. sc. most of their 12 children were born there and then some in tenn. one of his 7 sons was john b. 1789 sc. this is the john who married nancy vickrey. i believe one of the other sons of col. thomas mccrory is the father of william patrick mccrory b.1825. most of the stuff i have indicates it to be hugh b. abt 1791 sc. i go by the name of billy and my one son is named william patrick mccrory b 1969. these three patrick mccrorys are the only 3 i know of in my line. you probably have most of the stuff i left out, but if you want it and all the details and story's just let me know. my address isbilly mccrory, p o 593, frisco city,al 36445. e-mail me at i live right in the middle of where the first mccrory's settled when all those brothers came here in a wagon train from sc. Billy Mccrory
