Introduction

James McLeod settled in South Carolina after reportedly fighting in the Revolutionary War. Whether he served as a Patriot or Tory is uncertain, but certain family stories indicate he was on the side of the Patriots. They came into the new world from Ireland (where he reportedly met and married Margaret) to Virginia and then traveled the Great Wagon Road on into Charleston South Carolina before eventually settling in the Sumter area. It is said they lived on the Scape Or Swamp near Oswego in Sumter District. James was deceased by 1784 when his widow is found married to Roger Gordon. She was deceased by Dec. 30 1814. Margaret Blakely McLeod and Roger Gordon had four children, all daughters; Elizabeth Gordon Thompson, Agnes Gordon Neilson, Sarah Gordon and Janet Gordon Potts. Work on the James McLeod Family of Sumter and Clarendon Counties by Nelson McLeod June 2003.

He was born about 1750 reportedly in Scotland however, he married Margaret Blakely who born b: 11 Mar 1755 in County Down, Ireland. She re-married Roger Gordon, a close family friend, about 1783.

Discrepancies
- Moses T McLeod was born in 1816 - von Hacke shows Moses B. McLeod selling to Moses T. McLeod in 1819. Researching the deed should reveal if this was a deed gift to his nephew or if another Moses T. McLeod was in the area at the same time.
- Von Hacke states that he had a child in 1844 posthumeously (Warren) and that his wife died in childbirth. Family files show that Moses died in 1855, therefore the son was born prior to his death.

"Hollingsworth McLeod states that Jane's family had been Tories in the Revolutionary War, but at least one relative, Redden McCoy, was a noted patriot." Work on the James McLeod Family of Sumter and Clarendon Counties by Nelson McLeod June 2003.

Roger was nicknamed "Ordy". Was named for his step-father, Roger Gordon. On account of his wife being a "Tory" (an English sympathizer), his family disapproved of the marriage, and manifested same by almost ostracizing them, until their family was about grown.

At any rate, it is likely he was related in some way to this McLeod line due to residence. 1820 Sumter District Census, Sumter Census Project,
