William McGaugh first found in Davidson Co., TN deeds recording land in 1788. He died there in 1789. His son John married in Davidson County in 1791, living there until 1820 when he moved his complete family to Ray Co., Missouri.
Some family records indicate William was in the Augusta Co., VA area ca 1750; John possibly born there.
The name was recorded in Davidson Co. as "McGaioch" at first; later as McGaugh. May have been two separate families in the Davidson area; some names not William's sons.
I want to know where William and family lived prior to Davidson County; and what country they came from.
