Paul McPherson by his military records was born 1734 in Banffshire. He may have moved to Inverness as a young man and he joined the 17th Regiment of Foot in 1763 in Leicestershire, England. He was sent with his regiment to Boston in December 1775 and likely participated in the evacuation of the Loyalists from Boston to Halifax, NS. His military records even tell me that he was 5'8" in stocking feet, with black hair, dark eyes and swarthy complexion. Now if I could just find out who his parents were?

My grandmother, Florence Louise MacPherson is a great-great granddaughter of Paul McPherson, I have a copy of his land grant in Nova Scotia (500 acres) in Guysborough, N.S.. She gave me a lot of info. on the Nova Scotia McPhersons and a Donald J. MacPherson also supplied a lot of info. (he resided in Hamilton, Ontario). He passed away and I'm looking for the person who has his research. I haven't been updated in 20 years.

Hello. I am trying to complete my family history and I have also come to a stand still with Paul McPherson b. 1734 in Banffshire. I have what I hope to be the most up dated McPherson Family tree. My Grand mother Is Mary Ellen McPherson her father was Kenneth d. McPherson and his father was George Rufus McPherson and so on I can go back as far as Paul McPherson and that is it I am trying to find more but have limited funds, but am very good on-line. Please contact me and maybe we can update all the info....
Thank you Cynthia
