Daniel McLeod - Indirect Line - husband of Catherine McLean - Sumter -

The son of Angus McLeod and Nancy McCutchen, Daniel was the brother of my direct line ancestor, Alexander McLeod, husband of Sarah McIntosh. Born cr. 1790 in North Carolina according to the 1850 Sumter District Census, he appears for the first time as head of household in 1830 Sumter. His property lay on or near the Beaverdam Branch in Sumter, some of which is still owned by his great great grandson today - that portion is shown on present day Lee County SC maps as "McLeods Mill Pond".

Daniel McLeod husband of Jane Christmas - Sumter -

Von Hacke papers at Sumter state this Daniel was the son of Angus McLeod of 1820 Sumter. Research indicates this is not a true connection, most of the property attributed to this Daniel by Von Hacke was actually the property of Daniel and Catherine McLeod (see above). Owned property near Rembert Church in Sumter where he and many of his descendants are buried. One researcher reports that the book, "Scots in the Carolina's" states that this Daniel's father was another Daniel McLeod, not an Angus.

Daniel McLeod - husband of Jane A Evans-

He is said to be the son of Norman MacLeod and Jennette Morrison and the brother of Norman McLeod of Darlington District. This Daniel's probate was in Kershaw District Court Records - He was deceased by 1825 - - his wife Jane was pregnant at the time of his death. Children: Roderick R McLeod, John F. McLeod, Daniel A. McLeod; Norman E. McLeod, Nancy McLeod, Mary McLeod, Jennett McLeod, Christian McLeod, Catherine McLeod, Sarah McLeod plus twins born posthumanously - Kershaw Probate Court Index File 50 Estate 1778 dated 1825 recorded Mar 30 1825.

The Widowed Jane and two of her sons, Norman Evans McLeod and Daniel Asberry McLeod migrated to Georgia around 1840.
