  • Notes 
    • Reverend William McGregor (the "Fiery Old Scots Preacher"ť) was born about 1730-35 probably in Scotland. No records have been found as to when he immigrated to America, but he first appears in North Carolina in 1771 on the Bute County North Carolina tax roll, and was mentioned in the Kehuky Baptist Association minutes in 1774.

      He was ordained to preach in June 1776 in Franklin County.

      He was the organizing pastor of Mouth of Uwharrie Baptist Church in 1780 in Montgomery County North Carolina.

      It is believed by some that when William came to America he was joined by two brothers, John McGregor and Bartlett McGregor, and in fact there are a John McGregor and a Bartlett McGregor in North Carolina, but no evidence has surfaced that proves they are William's brothers.

      William purchased land in Anson County in 1778 lying southwest of the PeeDee River near the mouth of Attaway Branch.

      He paid taxes in 1780 and 1782 for five hundred acres of land in Montgomery County in the same location. That land is now part of Morrow Mountain State Park in western Montgomery County.

      Some internet sites say that William married Sarah (Molly) Flowers, but I have not seen evidence to verify the marriage. The John McGregor referenced above, lived in Northampton County North Carolina and is said to have married Mary Flowers, and in his will his wife was named Mary and he had a son named Flowers. If William and John were brothers, perhaps they married sisters.

      Rev. William McGregor and his wife are probably buried in the cemetery above the Kron Cemetery and is called the McGregor Cemetery at the Morrow Mountain State Park.

      Rev. William died about 1804/5; it is not known when his wife died but probably around the same time as she was alive in the 1800 census.

      There are many internet sites that have confused Rev. William, Sr. with his son William, Jr.

      There are sites that say Bartlett McGregor is Rev. William's brother, and others that say Bartlett is William's son.

      Some sites say Ezekiel and Willis are the sons of William, Jr. Also, Rev. William's daughters have never been addressed.

      Let's discuss the children of Rev. William McGregor, Sr.

      1790 Census Montgomery County North Carolina (names spelled Megrigler) (pg 413)
      William McGregor, Sr.
      3 males 16+ (Sr. age abt 45-50, Jr. and ?)
      2 males under 16 (Ezekiel and Willis)
      3 females (Sr. wife, Jr. wife Mary Jane Stiles,
      Jr. daughter Mary Ann)
      4 slaves

      Bartlett McGregor
      1 male 16+ (Bartlett)
      1 male under 16 (Harris McGregor)
      2 females (wife Anne Harris McGregor and 1st child Avrilla)

      1800 Census Montgomery County North Carolina (individual spelling below) (pg 520)
      William Megriger, Sr.
      1 male over 45 (William Sr. aged 65-70)
      2 males 16-26 (Ezekiel and Willis)
      1 female over 45 (Sr. wife)
      6 slaves

      William Megriger, Jr.
      1 male 26-45 (Jr.)
      1 female 26-45 (wife)
      5 children

      Bartlett Megreger
      1 male 26-45 (Bartlett)
      1 female (wife)
      7 children

      There is also a William Megriger aged 16-26 and wife on page 501. Could this be the male living in McGregor household in 1790? I don't think it is William Jr.'s son as he named a child William b. in 1805.

      By 1810 census there were no McGregors in Montgomery County.

      I have not researched any of William Sr.'s grandchildren but have relied on information contained in web sites.

      In the 1790 and 1800 censuses, the names seem to have been put in a loose alphabetical order so we don't know how close together they lived to one another.

      Bartlett McGregor moved to Stanly County North Carolina where he died .

      William, Jr., Ezekiel and Willis moved to Warren County, Tennessee.

      William McGregor, Jr. is the son of Rev. William McGregor, Sr. and was probably born between 1755 to 1770 either in Scotland or America and is probably the first son.

      I think Bartlett McGregor is the son not the brother of Rev. William McGregor, Sr. William Sr. could have had a brother named Bartlett and he could have come to America, but is out of the picture by the above time frame.

      Ezekiel and Willis b. 26 Nov. 1784 are the sons of William Sr. There could have been other sons who were out of the house or not living by the 1790 census.

      There are web sites that say Mary Ann McGregor is a child of Rev. William McGregor, Sr. I believe she is the child of William McGregor, Jr. and his wife Mary Jane Stiles McGregor.

      Any daughters of Rev. William McGregor, Sr. are probably married by the time of the 1790 census.

      I have been told that a daughter named Susan married and moved to Rowan County North Carolina.

      There is another who I believe is the daughter of Rev. William McGregor, Sr., and her name is Martha McGregor and she is my ancestor.

      William Boyd was 16 years old when he joined the Rowan County North Carolina militia in 1777. He lived in Rowan County, but I have not been able to find his father among the Boyds living there. In his Revolutionary War pension file, he states that he served in the Revolutionary War with Bartlett McGregor. In 1784 he was living in his fatherăa€™s house when it burned down. I do not know where William was living in the 1790 census, but I believe he and Martha McGregor were married by this time. On March 18, 1794 William Boyd enters 100 acres great glade of Mountain Creek, border on McGehe. This land lies next to Rev. William McGregorăa€™s 500 acres. Also, McGehe is another name for McGregor, although it is usually spelled McGeehee. In the 1800 Montgomery County North Carolina census William Boyd and Martha McGregor Boyd are listed on page 518 as being age 26-45 with 1 male and 4 females under 10.

      About 1808 when the McGregors moved to Warren County, Tennessee, William and Martha Boyd went with them. William states in his pension file that locations he lived after his service were Montgomery County, North Carolina, Warren County, Tennessee, Lauderdale County, Alabama, McNairy County, Tennessee, and Washington County, Arkansas where he died. Other Boyds show up in Warren County as well. The McGregors and Boyds are in the 1812 tax list of Warren County, Tennessee. Other families that traveled to Warren County from Montgomery County were Ware, Rowland, Martin, and Burleson.

      I donăa€™t know the names or the fate of any of William and Martha McGregor Boydăa€™s children before 1800; the ones I do know about are McGregor b. 1804, William b. 1806, Willis b. 1808, Ezekiel b. 1811, Martha b. 1812 and another daughter I have not found as of yet. If anyone wants additional information regarding William and Martha Boyd please contact me directly.

      The above is a compilation of my own research, web sites, and other sources. I would like feedback on what I have written. If you disagree with my conclusions, please respond and give your reasons and we can have an online discussion. And by all means please respond if you have additional information or know where we can find proof documents. There is so much misinformation on the internet, I thought by doing this we can all get it straight.

      I found this very enjoyable and interesting. It looks like you have done a lot of work and research. I appreciate that and your sharing with this site.

      I have not done any original work on this family, but, alas, have accepted what I have found that others have done. Now, I will have to find time to retrace your steps. :) I would appreciate any other information you might have to share.

      I am a descendant of Avie McGregor and Benjamin Marks. To the best of my knowledge, Avie is William's granddaughter, a daughter of his son Ezekiel McGregor.

      Thank you for your comments. I wish there were more records in North Carolina that had survived the centuries.

      The MacGregor Clan in Scotland was a warring bunch and one of their favorite foes was the Clan Campbell. However, the Campbells were more political and were able to obtain legal grants for the MacGregor lands. This was a time when religious conflicts between the Catholics and the Protestant Crown of England was at its height. Several clans of MacGregors fought in the Jacobite rebellion for Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745. On April 3, 1603, the MacGregor clan was proscribed and the name MacGregor was outlawed. The members of the clan were forced to take another surname and hide among the other clans; they were prosecuted and persecuted and were prohibited from carrying any weapon. The procription was lifted a few times, but was almost immediately put back in place. It wasnăa€™t until 1775 until the proscription was finally lifted for good. During this turbulent time we started seeing variations of the MacGregor name; the name McGeehee was one of those variations. There are still McGeehees in the United States today.

      William MacGregor was a boy during the Jacobite rebellion. Hundreds of MacGregors left Scotland for America or for Ireland and then some of those came to America. Because Williamăa€™s name was outlawed, I doubt we will ever be able discover where in Scotland he lived. I have been told that most ships coming into Virginia from Scotland did not preserve the names of their passengers so that information is lost to us.

      Information I have on Ezekiel is he married Sarah Ware (twin to Willisăa€™ wife) and he died on 9/23/1856 in Warren Co. Tennessee. Children were:
      Temperance
      Willis Nard
      Jason
      Jemima
      Wiley A.
      Avie
      Henderson
      Clinton
      Susan

      Can you confirm the above info as correct. Thanks.

      I also want to ask you about Avie. Do you know if her name was Avie or if that is a nickname?
      Thanks for your reply.

      Surnames: McGregor, Marks
      I really enjoy the historical information. It makes for interesting reading when combined with the family tree.

      Avie is the name on her gravestone in Bell County, Texas.

      The names of Ezekiel's children are the ones that I have, but I must admit I copied them from other sources and have not verified them. (I have been working on another side of my family.) The name Ezekiel McGregor Marks was given to Avie's son. He was always called "Mack" Marks. His grandson, my grandfather, was named Ezekiel Mack Hale.

      The only information I have on Avie is below and was copied from the county history book for Bell County, Texas. It was submitted by a member of her family, George Huckabee.

      AVIE MCGREGOR MARKS HUCKABEE
      (March 6, 1819-October 9, 1897)

      Avie McGREGOR was born in Warren County, Tennessee, on March 6, 1819, the daughter of Ezekiel and Sarah Ware McGREGOR. She married Benjamin MARKS in the mid 1830s and had two sons: James H. and Ezekiel McGregor "Mack".
      A widow, she married Bartlett HUCKABEE in either Pontotoc County, Mississippi, or Middle Tennessee. Marriage records are not available for these counties for those years.
      Avie and Bartlett HUCKABEE had three children: Jason, Charlotte Ann and Martha T. While in Mississippi, the Huckabees were members of the Laodicea Primitive Baptist Church where he was a deacon and often a delegate to the associational meetings. A farmer in Mississippi, Huckabee
      also was a member of the state militia in 1864. This group was made up of older men of the home guard. The two Marks sons also served in the Confederate Army, but Jason was too young to serve.
      After the end of the Civil War, the Huckabee family, in company with several Wilson families, left Mississippi to come to Wilson Valley in Bell County. Bartlett and Avie moved their church letter to Little Flock Primitive Baptist Church, but were later charter members of Mount Vernon Primitive Baptist Church, located near present Taylor's Valley.
      Bartlett Huckabee died in Wilson Valley on March 10, 18??(my error). Avie also died in Wilson Valley. Their marked graves as well as their children, in-laws, and most of their grandchildren are in the Wilson Valley Cemetery.

      Much of this information came from a document that my great uncle provided to my mother many years ago. I can verify much of the Pontotoc Co, MA information regarding the descendents of Ezekiel McGregor and his wife. However, my information does indicate that Wm did marry Sarah, but confusion arises that many people refer to her as "Molly", which is not the nickname for Sarah, but for Mary. My mother's name was Sarah. It would not be unusual for Wm to have married Mary's sister, as his twin sons married twin sisters. I would be interested in sharing additional information about his family. I am at a dead-end with Wm. My mother grew up being told she was "Scotch-Irish". I personally believe that Wm and his family left Scotland for Ireland and immigrated to NC from there. I have not proven this theory, but I do research it as time allows.

      I have a considerable amount of information on this line beginning with his son Jehu b. 1796 in North Carolina.

      My sources list William Jr.'s children to be:

      I would love to compare notes and exchange information on this line. As you said, the internet sites are not very helpful as they have so much incorrect information and contradict each other. I've been trying to get this line straightened out for quite some time and would appreciate any and all help.

      I'll be happy to send you a copy of my McGregor GEDCOM. Email me at janzgenes@yahoo.com and I'll do it immediately.

      I also have the book titled "The Dodson Family of Warren County, Tennessee and Allied Families" by Catherine Gaffin Lynn which includes a section on the McGregors. I'll be happy to share information from it as well. William Jr. and Jesse Dodson came from Virginia together into Tennesse and were closely intertwined during the late 1700's and early 1800's.

      Greetings from California! (Hello cousins, Bill & David.)

      Trust you are all well. I'm forwarding a response that I received from our Society Secretary (Clan Gregor Society, Scotland), Ms Ishbel McGregor...I had e-mailed her regarding trying to find info on either Apion's Glen or Ossian Glen in Scotland, and she was kind enough to check in w/Dr. Hutcheson (as he does not have e-mail). It's purported that Rev. William McGregor (who came to the colonies to preach in the meeting houses from Scotland) was from Ossian's Glen. Larry, who is a genealogist & new member of our Western USA Chapter (CGS), has been helpful w/this research. He has info that possibly Apion's Glen is the correct location.

      In 1994, while Doyle & I were in the Perthshire area, Dr. A. MacGregor Hutchison was kind enough to spend time w/us. At one point, he took us on a wonderful outing/day-trip to a great deal of MacGregor sights. He is learned in history & place names of Scotland. I've asked before about Ossian's Glen, or a place once known as Ossian's Glen. There is a Loch Ossian, which is high above Glen Lyon, one of the glens Gregor took us a tour through, and wonderful experience, I might add. In trying to pin point g-g-g-g-grandfather's origins, traveling every avenue is quite difficult. I still maintain that these MacGregor brothers (William, Bartlett, John & possibly one other, think Andrew) came from an area where they had an opportunity to study...surely one didn't just sail over from Scotland & start preaching in the colony meeting houses without some sort of education, even back in those times.

      I would like to research further regarding the ancient town of Dull & a school/college, said to be the first seminary of education mainland Scotland (have not confirmed this). Dull apparently became a famous educational centre - mid centuries schools which was removed to Kunkeld - later St. Andrews.....this town was in the area of Glen Lyon, Rannoch area. Loch Ossian is to the northeast of this, if my memory serves me well.

      Thanks for reading through....this is getting to be a lengthy saga on our illusive McGregors.

      All the best,
      Carolyne McGregor Long (CGS/ACGS)

      Dear Carolyne,

      Gregor phoned me tonight (perhaps I should say last night) and I asked him about your query.

      He has never heard of Apion's Glen but reminded me that there is a district called Appin just north of Oban and there is an area near Aberfeldy called Appin of Dull. Whether either of these have any connection with your Apion ........ We just don't know.

      Gregor also informed me that part of what we call the Sma' Glen, between Crieff and Aberfeldy, is called Ossian's Glen. (Ossian was son of Fingal). Well! Just goes to prove we are never too old to learn.

      I can relate to your comment about e-mails. Every time I sit down to try and get some work done, I get a great load of e-mails. Once I have answered them, there is no time left to do the work I set out to do. I'm not sure how to overcome this problem. Any ideas?

      Dear Ishbel,

      Do trust your back problem has improved greatly. I certainly can relate on that one, having some serious issues with mine. I think I probably already knew, in the back of my mind, that Gregor did not have or want computer...some days I'm with him on that. ha! Seems I'm always in hurry due to schedules, family & the like, and everytime I get on-line, there's a mountain of e-mails to sort through. My goodness, technology is getting too fast for me.

      About a place once called/known as Ossian's Glen...perhaps it never existed and if it did, possibly, only a handful of MacGregor's knew it as such. This may be a mystery which will stay just that, a mystery. Do appreciate your help and pls do tell Gregor hello for me. Our time spent w/him during 1994, was indeed special, a highlight of our travels that year.

      Best to you and yours, aye.
      Carolyne

      Dear Carolyne,

      Thank you, yes! I did enjoy my break from the normal routine of life but unfortunately a back problem rather curtailed my activities and I have just been told by my chiropractor that the problem normally takes at least six months to settle. I shall just have to plod on as best I can.

      Gregor does not have e-mail and is adamant that he never will. He's not even interested in having a computer, in spite of the enormous amount of work he does. He just passes most of it to me for typing!!!

      I will certainly put your question to Gregor. I cannot help on this one as I have never heard of either Ossian's Glen or Apion's Glen. Perhaps he will be able to throw some light on it. He should be in touch with me very soon.

      Yours Aye,
      Ishbel.

      Dear Ishbel,

      Hope this finds to well & that you returned home from your brief holiday very refreshed. It's work day for me, so must rush along. I'm hoping that you might be able to help me w/a wee question for Gregor Hutcheson. If he has e-mail, I do not have his address, so am inquiring by way of you as I believe you have contact w/him on a fairly regular basis. Would you be so kind to ask Gregor (or perhaps you know this yourself)... is there now or was there ever an Apion's Glen, Scotland? I have new info on my mysterious Rev William McGregor, reportedly from Ossian's Glen, Scotland, & the possibility that it is not such, but Apion's Glen. Sorry, my curiosity has gotten the better of me. I know you are tremendously busy, but should you get the chance, I would appreciate hearing from you on this very much.

      Best wishes,
      Carolyne crnlyon@inreach.com
