Timeline

1740 -1750 - Angus MacLeod is born in Scotland. The exact place of birth is unknown; recent participation in the Family Tree DNA Surname Project has revealed several close matches; the three closest matches have ancestry on the Isle of Skye, Galtrigal, Colbost and Breakitch; 1880 Census Place Ridgeway, Bullock, Alabama Family History Library Film 1254004 NA Film Number T9-0004 - daughter Nancy McLeod Bethune states both parents born in Scotland while she was born in NC

1765-1770 - Nancy McCutchen is born in Scotland; again, the exact place of birth is unknown. 1880 Census Place Ridgeway, Bullock, Alabama Family History Library Film 1254004 NA Film Number T9-0004 - daughter Nancy McLeod Bethune states both parents born in Scotland while she was born in NC

1783-85 Alexander is born in Scotland. Shortly after this, the family left Scotland and traveled to Ireland for a time. They then set sail for Virginia, a brother called Norman is born aboard the ship, after arrival in Virginia, they migrated to Richmond County North Carolina. Interview with Albert John McLeod; letter from J. F. McLeod to P.B. McLeod; provided by P.B. McLeod to Lori McLeod Wilke June 2003

Sailed to Virginia cr. 1789 - 1795 - a brother Norman was born on board the ship

The exact time of immigration is not known, but it can be estimated from what is known of the children of Angus and Nancy (using later census records to determine 1800 age bracket and birth place where possible):

Alexander born cr. 1783 in Scotland
Unknown Female born cr. 1785 (aged 16-26 in 1800 - possibly Margaret)
Unknown Female born cr. 1785 (aged 16-26 in 1800 - possibly Catherine)
Norman born cr. 1789 (aged 10-16 in 1800 - born on board ship)
Daniel born cr 1791 (aged 10-16 in 1800 - born in North Carolina)
Mary aka Polly born cr. 1793 (aged 0-10 in 1800 - born in North Carolina or Scotland
Betsy born cr. 1795 (aged 0-10 in 1800 - born in North Carolina
Nancy born cr. 1797 (aged 0-10 in 1800 - born in North Carolina)

Unfortunately, there have been no census records for Norman past 1800 so we cannot at this time confirm his birth on board the ship to Virignia but using the time line above, it would appear that immigration was by 1789. Since Daniel was born in North Carolina around 1791 according to this timeline (loosely backed up by birth year range in 1800 of 1785-1790 and aged 60 in 1850) - they apparently did not stay long in Virginia before continuing their journey to North Carolina.

Research efforts to locate Angus and Nancy in Virginia have so far proven unfruitful. Unfortunately, the 1790 Census Records of Virginia were destroyed in a fire and although attempts have been made to reconstruct the results from tax lists, research into this era will be difficult as a result.

Update June 2011 : Mary aka Polly's Obituary states that she was born in Scotland which places immigration later than 1789 and puts Daniel's 1850 census age in question - however, it is well known that census enumerations were often incorrect. Immigration took place sometime between 1790 and 1800.

The Charleston Observer, A Presbyterian Newspaper June 8, 1844 Issue Died on the 24th of April last, in the 51st year of her age, Mrs. Mary McKay, wife of John McKay, of Pike County, Alabama. The deceased was born in Scotland, and while an infant, her parents emigrated and settled in North Carolina. For the last eighteen years, the deceased was the subject of suffering. When about 16 years of age, she embraced religion, and became a member of Pinetree Church, South Carolina. In the death of this individual, a husband has been bereft of a kind and affectionate wife; an interesting family of children, of a pious and exemplary mother; and the church of Bethel of an ardent and devoted member. During her protracted illness, she manifested Christian resignation and submission to the will of her Heavenly Father. A large circle of friends mourn her departure, but their loss is her gain. She was desirous to depart and be with Christ, rather than remain here. She trembled not at the approach of the grim messenger, knowing that her redeemer lived. She imitated the wise virgins--had oil in her lamp--and when the Son of Man came, was able to say, Hosannah to the Son of David, blessed be the King who cometh in the name of the Lord. Provided by Bruce McKay on May 27th 2010

There is also a question regarding the marriage date of John and Polly - there appears to be a five year gap in the births of their known children - it is possible that John was married and widowed before his marriage to Polly and that the Obituary was written by a non-family member who mis-remembered the family history - we may never know the truth. In any event, immigration took place sometime betwen 1789 and 1795


Virginia Research to date has revealed the following:

British Transport Ship "The Oxford" - Immigration Legend

A letter exists in which a descendant states that Norman McLeod of Va/Gallia Ohio MAY have come over on the British Transport Ship "The Oxford". This ship was captured by the American Revolutionary Forces in 1776 and all seaman/passengers were apparently taken captive and later dispursed throughout Virginia. Based upon the YDNA match with descendants of Norman, research was undertaken to determine if OUR Angus MacLeod, husband of Nancy McCutchen, might have been the Angus captured on "The Oxford". An Anguish McLeod is found in Amherst County Virginia from 1790 - 1804 when his land was sold and he disappeared from records of the state. Could this have been our Angus?

See June 2011 Update under Amherst County.....

The Angus McLeod of Amherst County Virgina is NOT our Angus McLeod, husband of Nancy McCutchen. It appears that there is some substantial evidence that he was the Cadet Aeneus MacLeod who was captured aboard "The Oxford"; however, it remains unclear as to what that evidence is - the Cadets were sent to Winchester Town in Frederick County and apparently held there for the duration of the War.

According to Historic Shepherdstown, Woods, on the 21st of February 1781 wrote to Gov. Jefferson that he was unable to feed all the POW's and some were sent to Shepherdstown in Berkeley County (Murdock and John McLeod were sent to that County in 1776) - this book also states that a Bush Farm in Winchester was where many of the POW's were held.


Augusta County (no highland prisoners sent to this county)

1790 - 1800 - Norman McCloud (likely formed from the 1787 tax records used to create the 1790 Census)

Possibly the Sergt. Norman McLeod captured aboard the Oxford and held as a POW in Winchester Town Fredrick County Va as a POW for the duration of the Revolutionary War.

The Norman McLeod in Augusta County is likely to be the Norman McLeod who married (by 1787) Mary Ann Humphries, daughter of Uriah Humphries who is also found in Augusta County Records {Augusta Co., Judgements, OS 2, NS1 Uriah Humphries vs. Hollingsworth, Johnston & Co.}

Note: Botentorte County where records are also found for Uriah Humphries and where Mary Ann was supposedly born was formed from Augusta County in 1770 - which may explain why records are found in both counties until Norman moved to Ohio.


Berkeley County

Murdoch and John, Oxford Prisoners sent here in 1776


Essex - (no highland prisoners sent to this county)

A Torkal/Torkil McLeod purchased land on August 21 1751 - designated as McLeod of Essex - he died cr. March 17 1752 - he left a daughter Ann b. in 1742 who married William Marshall.


Farquire County (no McLeod highland prisoners sent to this county)

Marriages:

1780 William McLeod married Jane Bowmen - no further records found - passing through?
1790 Martin McLeod married Nancy Folks - no further records found - passing through?

1790 - John McCloud


Fredrick County

Winchester Town - Cadet Angus McLeod and Sergts. William and Norman McLeod of the captured British Transport "Oxford" were sent here in 1776 to be held as Prisoners of War until such time as they were given release. No information about that release has been found as of February 2009 - they may have been released to stay or go as they pleased, or may have been forced to return to their home country.


1782-1799 - William McLeod (William McCloud)

This William may have been the William of the Oxford - an Anguish McLeod is found in Amherst County records beginning in 1790 (see above) and a Norman McLeod is found in Augusta County records in 1790 (probably from the 1787 tax records used to form a 1790 Census).

The Norman McLeod in Augusta County is likely to be the Norman McLeod who married Mary Ann Humphries, daughter of Uriah Humphries who is also found in Augusta County Records.


Hampshire County (now part of West Virginia) (no highland prisoners sent to this county)

1787 - Corns McLeod


Henrico County (no highland prisoners sent to this county)

1787 - apparently John McLeod b. 1741 in Maryland - Revolutionary War Solder

Note: Two highland prisoners were sent to this county in 1776 - has documentation been found proving that either 1) the 1787 John is NOT one of the two Johns' who were captured 2) evidence that the prisoners either died in the Rev. War or returned to their homeland after the war?


Ohio County (now part of West Virginia)

1787- 1789 - Daniel McLeod (McLoud) - land grants dated 1799 and 1800 - also this name found on a land grant dated 3/8/1875 in Yohogania County - possibly the same man due to area.

1829 - Cornelius McLoud (also known as Tyler County since 1815) - SEE Hampshire County above

Note: "Yohogania, Monongalia, and Ohio Counties were created in 1776 from the District of West Augusta, the western territory of Augusta County, VA that was treated like a separate county. West Augusta was administered from Fort Dunmore, Virginia'a name for what is now Pittsburgh, beginning in 1775. The northern portion of Monongalia County, the northeastern portion of Ohio County, and and all of Yohogania County were also known as Westmoreland County, PA which was a mother to several counties. The area that was the northwest corner of Monongalia became Washington County, PA in 1781, and most of that became Greene County, PA in 1796. The area that was the northeast corner of Monongalia became the southern portion of Fayette County, PA in 1783. "


Petersburg County

No Angus found in any County other than Amherst - END OF VIRGINIA RESEARCH


North Carolina (by 1791)
"they migrated to Robeson(?) North Carolina where another brother called Daniel was born"

1785 - 1810 After the family's arrival in Richmond County, North Carolina, as many as 5 more children were born; Daniel, Margaret, Catherine, Mary aka Polly, Nancy and Betsy. Census records indicate that three of the daughters and two of the males were born between the years 1785 - 1800 when we know that the family was either en route or already in North Carolina. There are two daughters in the 16-25 year range in 1800, these daughters may have been born in Scotland as was Alexander. Unfortunately, one daughter, Margaret dies in 1829 before it becomes clear by census records where she was born, and the second, Catherine is not found in any record after the 1828 Will of her sister Margaret. The other three daughters have been found in census records with North Carolina stated as their place of birth.

The entire family is found in Richmond county's 1800 census while the 1810 census reveals that Alexander and Norman had moved out of the family home. That census reveals an Alexander aged 26-44, with a wife aged 16-25 and a female aged 0-10 which fits the age of Alexander and Sarah, although we know from the interview with Albert John that Alexander and Sarah were married in North Carolina, we have no knowledge of a daughter of theirs born before 1810 in North Carolina, so whether this is our Alexander is unknown. A Norman is shown as head of household near to this Alexander. It is possible that these are the enumerations of the brothers, but it is in no way proven. Census Research at Ancestry.com Census On Line by Lori McLeod Wilke 2003 - 2006

Earlier researchers in North Carolina searched for Alexander, Daniel and Norman and not Angus as those researchers believed that the three brothers had come as adults to the United States. The interview with Albert John McLeod in 1920 has shown that we were incorrect in that assumption.

Alexander with his family left Scotland..........a brother Norman was born on board the ship............migrated to North Carolina where another brother, called Daniel was born.

From Census Records and the above timeline - it is apparent that the family was in North Carolina by 1790/1791. Unfortunately, the 1790 Federal Census was destroyed in a fire and although attempts to recreate it using other records is ongoing, to date no Angus McLeod has been found in either Virginia or North Carolina in that year that would appear to fit our Angus.

1790 - Searches of both Robeson and Richmond County 1790 Census records have revealed no Angus McLeod as a head of household. ( Note: Using the mis-spelling of McCloud in the online extractions available; none were found in either Richmond or Robeson County NC.)

# Free white males aged 16 upwards and heads of family

Richmond County contained the following McLeods (1790 census North Carolina Richmond County Fayette district)

McLeod, Alexander - 2 males aged 16 upwards/head of family, 2 males aged under 16, 1 female
McLeod, Alexander - 3 males aged 16 upwards, 3 free white males under 16, 2 free white females

McLeod, Archibald - 1 male age 16 upwards/head of family, 1 male under 16, 2 females
McLeod, Aphia - 0 males aged 16 upward, 3 males under 16, 2 white females inc. Aphia as head of family
McLeod, Ann - 0 males over 16, 1 male under 16, 2 females inc. Ann as head of family

Robeson County contained the following McLeods (1790 Robeson County Census Fayette District)

ALEX McLEOD - 1 white males - 6 white females
ALEX McLEOD - 1 white males - 5 white females
ALEX McLEOD - 1 white males - 0 white females
ALEX McLEOD - 1 white males - 4 white females
NORMAN McLEOD - 2 white males - 3 white females
MALCOLM McLEOD - 3 white males - 1 white females
MURDOCK McLEOD - 2 white males - 2 white females
MURDOCK McLEOD - 2 white males - 4 white females

This appears to confirm the evidence showing an arrival in North Carolina of about 1791 which is the indicated birth year of Daniel (see timeline above) . Using the timeline as a frame of reference, a census enumeration for Angus in 1790 would have appeared something like this:

Angus McLeod - 3 white males - 3 white females

Note: although these census records appear to be of our Angus and Nancy McCutchen McLeod, it should be obvious to readers that there are some discrepancies - for example, in 1800 there were five females in the house - 3 aged 0-10 and 2 aged 16-25 - in 1810 there are 2 in the 10 -15 year range which fits Betsy and Nancy, and now 3 in the 16 - 25 year range - Mary aka Polly fits in that age bracket when compared to her later census enumerations in Alabama but the other 2 in that age range in 1810 (assumed to be Margaret and Catherine) were in that age range in 1800 as well. Based upon all available information from the later census enumerations it would appear that the two older girls were either twins, or at least one should have been in the 10-15 age group in 1800 and not in the 16-25. It is obvious in cemetery research that folks of this era rarely knew their exact age; many tombstones show something to the effect of "died about 80 years of age", in that light, the discrepancies are too insignifcant against the other evidence to rule this out as our Angus McLeod.


Cousins are encouraged to pick up the research with the information provided here...especially if you live in North Carolina and can access the courthouses with ease......remember to copy every page of a record.....there are hints within the pages of the files......

Happy Researching!
