Massie Cameron GATEWOOD

1882 - ____

ID Number: I49436

  • RESIDENCE: Big Spring, Pocahontas Co. WVA and 1920 Greenup Co. KY
  • BIRTH: 1882
  • RESOURCES: See: [S1761]
Father: Andrew Cameron Lewis GATEWOOD C.S.A.

Notes


"He was found on the 1920 Greenup County, Kentucky census records listed as follows....Gatewood, William B. 43 Bond, William T. 26 boarder Gatewood, Massie C. 38 boarder. He was listed as a boarder but I believe him to be William's brother. There were 4 other male boarders living there but it is hard to make out their names. Both William and Massie are listed to have been born in West Virginia."

(RESEARCH QUERY) MCDUFFIE OR MACDUFFIE

____ - ____

ID Number: I99785

  • RESIDENCE: of Scotland
  • RESOURCES: See: notes

Notes


DHUBHTHAIGH or DUFFY is an ancient Celtic name that has many associated chiefs and ecclesiastics such as the father of St.BRIDGET; Archbishops of Armagh and ST.DUTHAC, Bishop of Tain and Chief Confessor of Scotland and Ireland. The name DUFFY (and variants) is now world-wide.


Demise of the Macduffies
Macduffies - where are you?


One of the great Scottish mysteries involves one of the oldest of Scottish Clans - The Macduffies.


The 2001 UK Electoral Roll, now on CD-ROM, reveals that there are only 21 Macduffies in the whole of the United Kingdom able to vote (only six in Scotland), although there may be children lurking around that Play Station.


So where did they go, presumably after the Highland Clearances?


Well, there are plenty in the USA and quite a few in Australasia, but were they shy? Did they change their name and to what? Was it a mass ethnic devolution?


One of the reasons may have resulted from a change of religion in Scotland. Scottish Highland Clans were Roman Catholic but the change to Presbyterianism meant Catholic persecution and exodus, possible with a change of name. The Highland Clearances certainly set up an opportunity to get rid of that troublesome Celtic element.


If you are a Macduffie I would be delighted to hear from you, as you may have the answer. In the meantime the Macduffies are attracted to Clan Macfie, set up by the Lord Lyon in that name because the only holder of Arms in Scotland was a Macfie. The true Clan name is Macduffie with ancestors from St. Patrick and St. Bridget.


So stand up you Macduffies and let's be hearing from you.


The real story is available from


http://homepages.tesco.net/~morganpublications/morganpu.html


on CD-ROM, so find out the truth or you may never be able to face the world again.

by David Morgan: "What is usually conveniently forgotten in Scotland is that the Picts and the Scots were both groups of Celts, and a more likely source of origin is Central Europe, Spain or Portugal.


My belief is that "Duffie" which lead to Clan Macduffie etc. was part of neither the Picts nor the Scots, but of Celtic origin through Ui Dubhthaigh (Dhubthaigh), an Irish Celtic Tribe that produced many ecclesiastics and Saints, famous in Celtic history, from an origin similar to the Macdonalds."


From: Clan Macfie web site:


"The Gaelic name MacPhie gives the English phonetic spelling Macafie, sometimes shortened to Macfie or MacPhee. However, in its original form, the name was probably Mac Dhuibh Shith or 'Son of the Dark Fairy. . . . "


"The origin of the MacDuffie name is interesting and has given rise to much speculation. In Gaelic dub-shide or dudh-sithe means 'the black peace,' so MacDuffie can be translated as 'son of the black peace.' It has been suggested that this may refer to the dark robes worn by monks, but as the Gaelic word sithe (pronounced 'shee') can also mean 'magical' or 'supernatural,' the MacDuffie name could equally well have to do with 'black magic.' The word has even found its way into English in 'banshee,' from the Gaelic bean-sithe, the female fairy whose wailing and shrieking foretold the approaching death of a member of a family. It is by no means beyond the bounds of possibility that the hereditary MacDuffie priors of Oronsay had their ancestral roots in the remote pre-Christian past, as hereditary priests in the Iron Age or earlier. But of course, this must remain a matter of speculation.
— Norman Newton, Colonsay and Oronsay, 1990"


"CLAN MACFIE is one of the oldest Scottish Clans with a history going back before records were kept. Traditionally, the Clan homeland was the Islands of Colonsay and Oronsay off the westcoast of Scotland. The ancient Clan name was Macdhubhsith, meaning 'dark men of peace,' which anglicised to MacDuffie or Macfie. This latter spelling being that recognised to-day by the Lyon Court in Edinburgh as the Clan name. The names MacDuffie and Macfie appear interchangeable in old records. In the middle ages the Clan provided MacDuffie Priors for the Priory on Oronsay, and the Macfie Chief was Keeper of The Records for the MacDonald Lords of the Isles. The Clan's fortunes went into decline when that Lordship fell in 1493. Malcolm, last Chief of Clan Macfie, was murdered on Colonsay in 1623 and the Clan dispossed of its lands and dispersed as a 'broken' Clan. Following the initiatives of the late Dr. Earle Douglas MacPhee of Vancouver, Canada, in the 1970's the Clan was reactivated and again formally recognised as an 'active' Clan on 27th May 1981. To-day the Clan has eight Clan Societies established and Clan members are to be found around the world."


Origins of the Clan
by David Morgan (30 October 1996)


Although it has been accepted that the progenitor of Clan MacDuffie (or the modern Macfie) was DUB-SIDHE (Dark man of the fairy mound in Gaelic), Lector of Iona in 1164, as indicated in "The Annals of Ulster," modern research is revealing a much more ancient origin.


A problem arose on the murder of the last Clan Chief Malcolm in 1623, when the Clan became a "broken Clan" because of the lack of a successor until 6 November 1981, when Clan Macfie (now so named as the only Arms had been granted to a Macfie) saw Professor Earl Douglas MacPhee invested as Clan Commander, the position now held by Alexander (Sandy) C. McPhie of Australia. Despite Professor MacPhee's gallant efforts, much research time had been lost but this has gathered momentum and a much clearer picture is emerging, although no Chief has yet been appointed.


The islands of Colonsay and Oronsay have been considered the traditional home of the Clan and yet the earliest evidence of occupation is not until 1208 when the Catholic Donald, grandson of King Somerled and progenitor of Clan Donald, took a party of MacNagills and MacDuffies for protection, to pay homage to the King of Norway and the controlling Vikings. On his return, the MacDuffies were installed in "Dun Eidhinn" or Dun Evan (Dun=fort), while Donald moved to Islay to set up the great MacDonald Parliament or "Thing." But obviously the MacDuffies must have lived somewhere else between 1164 and 1208, and equally obviously lived in another part of Scotland before 1164.


Linking research with other Clans it seems apparent that the MacDuffies are descended from Colla Uais, King of Ulster and Ireland through the Ui Macc Uais and Airgialla, subordinate to Cenel Loairn of Dal Riada, who dominated the district stretching from Knapdale north through Dunadd, Dunollie, Loch Linnhe, Mull, Morvern and Ardnamurchan which included the isles of Colonsay, Iona, Tire and Coll, an area increasingly suggested as being the home of Clan MacDuffie.


The Annals of Clonmacnoise detail the Battle of Kyndealgen (Allone) in which Duff Dakrich M'Duffe was slain in 717 AD, but most of the Duffies were ecclesiastic as a detailed analysis of Clan Duffy will confirm and include many Irish Bishops from Armagh and St. Duthac from Tain in Scotland, Chief Confessor of Ireland and Scotland.


But a key link must be Cormac, Bishop of Dunkeld in the 12th century when Iona was in decline. Son of Airbertach, who could trace his line back to the Fercha Fada, first King of Dal Riada in Scotland, Cormac begat six sons whom he placed on Church lands, including Fearchar Ruadh, now believed to be the progenitor of Clan MacDuffie, Clan McNab, Clan Ross, Clan Matheson, and Clan MacKenzie.


Clan MacDuffie became staunch supporters of Clan MacDonald in the Western Isles and it is ironic that their last chief was murdered by a renegade MacDonald, Coll Kitto, who became Laird of Colonsay. The MacDonalds, known in Northern Ireland as McDonnells, where they owned considerable tracts of land, were finally overwhelmed in 1493 when the Siol Alpin Confederation disintegrated and the Campbells eventually became the dominant Clan in the Western Isles."


Another couple of brief histories on the Clan McFie:


MacFie Clan Homepage


HISTORY:
Early history of the Clan is unknown. It has been said that MacFie is "one of the oldest and most interesting personal names we possess" The MacFie's are said to be descended from a "Selkie" or seal woman, who cast off her fins to become a beautiful woman and she married the first MacFie who hid her fin, so that she could no longer return to the sea. The MacFie's are Celts, and are a branch of the great Siol Alpine. In Gaelic the clan name is Dubhsithe—the dark featured tribe. Based on the carvings found on MacFie tombstones the Clan was made up of warriors and churchmen, the Clan was also Royalist. In 1549 the Isle of Colonsay, one of the Inner Hebrides, in Argyll, was recorded to be under the sway of "ane gentle Capitane called MacDuffyhe." His decendants would hold the Isle until the middle of the 17th century. In 1645 Coll MacDonald and his followers were charged with the murder of Malcom MacPhee of Colonsay, he would be the last chief of the MacFie's for many years. The MacPhees were dispossessed and merged into other more powerful clans, where they became conspicious for their courage. Many others settled on the shores of Ireland where they were called Macheffie or Macafee. Much later in history we find the reason behind the reputation MacFie's have for stealing sheep and other such lawlessness. In the mid-19th century, Ewan MacPhee(Eilean MhicPhee), of Loch Quoich, became 'famous' as the last of the Scottish outlaws. He recognised no law, and no landowner, and defended his homestead with firearms. It is Ewan MacPhee who was arrested for indulging in sheep stealing. On May 27th, 1981 the Clan MacFie was recognized and reactivated by the Lord Lyon and many of the Clan MacFie celebrate the anniversary of this day.
