YDNA Matches

Galtrigal Branch - the Deduced Ancestral Haplotype of two cousins is a 67-1 match to the Deduced Ancestral Haplotype of our family. Descended from Donald the Faithful Pilot who is credited with helping Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald flee after Culloden, the family occupations are Milling and Fine Carpentry as they are in our own family. Galtrigal is located across the loch from Dunvegan Castle. 95% of the time a Common Ancestor will be found between this Branch and our Family in a generation born about 1700.

Colbost - Norman MacLeod, heriditary Galley Maker (Fine Carpentry) to Dunvegan, born about 1700 in Colbost located near Dunvegan. His descendant is a 67-2 from our family haplotype and a 67 - 1 to the Galtrigal Branch. 95% of the time a Common Ancestor will be found between this Branch and our Family in a generation born about 1700. The descendant tested was born in Scotland.

Norman MacLeod - born before 1775 in Scotland; immigrated to Virginia then to Gallia County Ohio - descendants of this man match our Deduced Ancestral Haplotype on markers 1 - 25 perfectly which is unusual in any one other than close relations; however one of the two descendants tested upgraded to the 67 marker level where his results showed 2 mutations in markers 26 - 37 and 2 mutations in markers 38 - 67. 95% of the time a Common Ancestor will be found between this Branch and our family in a generation born between 1530 AD and 1700 AD. One of his mutations are either unique to his paternal line within the larger related group and another is shared with Colbost above; another mutation is on a volatile marker known to mutate in very recent generations. The testing of other cousins and the upgrading of the cousin who tested only 25 markers could tell us more about this match.

Telephone Interview with Giles Salvo July 16 2006 - Della claimed a relationship to the McLeods of Edisto Island - of the Sea Cloud Plantation. Apparently the details of this relationship have become lost over time but the story is that one of the sons was marrying a woman from Edisto Island whose background was questioned as the family did not know of the woman's family. During the explanation, it was learned the woman was a McLeod descendant and the familial relationship was apparently determined.

Giles remembers being told that there were FOUR brothers (Alexander, Daniel, Norman and another unnamed brother) - my research into the census records of Angus and Nancy McCutchen McLeod does not indicate a fourth son....if he existed he would almost certainly have to have been older than Alexander as he did not live with them in North Carolina according to the census records.

It is possible that Giles heard that four brothers originally came over but that would likely be Angus McLeod and three other brothers not the sons of Angus McLeod. This confusion in generations would be understandable as somehow the fact that Angus and Nancy came to the States was lost in the years and anyone hearing four brothers came together would easily have assumed it meant the next generation as they were also led to believe that the earliest known generation remained in Scotland.

Telephone Interview with Giles Salvo - July 16 2006 Nita also lived with her sister Margaret McLeod Giles in Mt. Pleasant before marrying.

Telephone Interview with Giles Salvo on July 16 2006 His grandmother Dellah Ives McLeod remarried after James Ervin McLeod's death. J.L, the eldest son was living with Donald R. McLeod Sr. and Alice Hudson McLeod, the youngest child Nita, was living with Mattie E. McLeod Foxworth, while Margaret (Giles Mother) stayed with Dellah to raise the "infants". Dellah's second marraige was "Tragic".

Ang heard of the situation and went to the second husband, placed a gun in his stomach and gave him one hour to leave and never come back. The second husband did so and was not seen or heard from again. Dellah and the children were taken back to live with Ang and Betty Ives McLeod (Dellah's sister).

Update on the research August 7 2007: William Wallace McLeod (McLeod Plantation) and his sister, Elizabeth McLeod SEABROOK (SeaCloud Plantation) are reputed to be the children of Robert McLeod and Mary Mikel�.Robert McLeod was born in South Carolina (British Colony) about 1764�.our branch didn�t come into the States until 1785 or 1790.

Robert�s father, Eneas or ANGUS McLeod, was born around the same time as our Angus McLeod (1740) but he (Robert) appears to have been born in South Carolina according to his siblings birth places. In any event, our Alexander, son of our Angus, was born in Scotland around 1783 so IF these two were the same Angus - then a return to Scotland to marry and have a son would have to have taken place.

Any close family connection would almost have to have been back another generation or with JOHN MCLEOD born about 1700 in Scotland. But I could not find any information on his birth place. This John McLeod would have been the age of our Angus McLeod's parents. I've not found any information on WHERE in Scotland he came from......

There is some evidence that our Angus may indeed have been in the colonies prior to the Revolutionary War - DNA has shown a common ancestor cr. 1700 with a Norman McLeod of Va. and Gallia County Ohio - this Norman's family has a legend that Norman and two brother, an Aeneas (Angus) and William McLeod were captured in 1776 aboard the ship "The Oxford" and forced to serve with the Virginia Militia throughout the duration of the war. The three brothers supposedly did not ever see each other again after their release from the militias.

If our Angus were the brother of this Norman of "The Oxford", then he would have to have returned to Scotland to marry Nancy McCutchen....all census records indicate that their son, Alexander, was born in Scotland cr. 1783......

We'll have to leave this one to DNA results to determine whether there is any family connection to the Edisto Island McLeods as close as 1700! LMW

UPDATE 2012:  Estate records have been found in Virginia which indicate that the Angus who was aboard "The Oxford" and remained in Virginia until his death cr.  1804 was not the same man as our Angus. To date, it does not appear as if any of the Edisto Island McLeods have joined the YDNA project. Relationship between their line of McLeods and ours remains unproven.
