Hello Buz McMillan
My name is Bob Duckworth and my family connection is Daniel Patterson married Maried Mary Millan in Kintyre Scotland. Information found in the book "The Record of McMillan and Allied Families", 1973 by R.H. McMillan. The McMillan genealogy is on file at the Laurens County Library in Dublin, GA. On page 767, in a bio for Daniel Patterson of Robeson County, NC. born 1731 in Kintyre, Scotland, it says "...m. Mary McMillan in Kintyre, Scotland. They emigrated from Scotland to Cumberland County, NC before the Revolutionary War..."
I also found a tree in ancestry.com that may link our two family's. http://pedigree.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/pedview.dll?ti=0Ind=995...
You stated that the Millan's arrivied in the North Carolina in 1774. Where did you find that date?
Daniel Patterson Mary McMillan emigrated to North Carolina. Daniel Patterson died August 5, 1809 and is buried with his wife and deceased family members in the Patterson cemetery near Red Springs, North Carolina. By his will, dated July 31, 1809 his estate was devised to his wife Mary, and children: Alexander, John, Barbara, Margaret Duchan, Flora McMillan and Mary Blue.
If you have information on the McMillan Patterson's in Kintyre I would be very interested.
