This comes from the Mormon www.familysearch.org
page and takes our line back as far as it probably will ever go.
??? Liddell, male, born 1686 in Scotland, wife unknown. Father of James Liddell, born 1712 (The record says Anderson, SC, but I don't think this is correct) who died 1796 in Abbeville Dist. SC. Also father of John Liddell, born about 1720, in scotland and died probably in Annapolis, MD. Also father of Moses Liddell, born about 1722 in Scotland and died about 1768 in Abbeville SC.
James Liddell had at least seven sons who all served in the Continental Army, Andrew earliest of all (I think) with Francis Marion in the Charleston SC swamps. George, his brother may have been with Marion as well.
AND THAT SETTLES THE ORIGINS OF OUR LINES. PERIOD. UNLESS, OF COURSE, SOME NEW "OLD" RECORDS CAN TAKE US BACK BEFORE ??? LIDDELL, BORN 1686.
