Re: How many people on this list are r1b1c7


He served in the American Revolution, but none of the records have found through fold three or daughters of the American Revolution show parents names. North Carolina didn’t start issuing death certificates until the early 1900s. He passed in 1829.

Yes, his first wife was Rachel and he had six kids with her. Then he left New Jersey and moved to North Carolina and remarried, having 4 more children, which is where my family line comes into play. We don’t know why he left his wife in New Jersey.

Ok, well it is good that I seem to be on the right track. Have you been in contact with the person that owned that Tree. So, I am guessing any military or marriage/death records have his parents named. I did see that his first wife was a Rachel. You must have seen the picture then of all those fellow at his gravesite and that a 4th GG had written a note also?

Aww, thank you. I have an Ancestry subscription. Just can’t get more info on parents or anyone beyond my 6th great grandfather. His name was Malcolm McCourry, 1742-1829. We know all about him as far as his kidnapping, settling in NJ, and eventually moving to NC. We just know nothing of his parents. Some show that his last name was a variation of MacQuarie before he came to NY. So all we know of his dad is that last name, the possible first name of John, 1720-1742, Argyll, Islay. All we know of his mom is a possible first name of Rachel. But even with that info, we can’t get any further. You’re welcome to dig around if you want. I welcome the help!

I haven’t had my DNA tested (for genealogy, anyway - I did have genetic testing due to a breast cancer diagnosis 6 years ago). So I’m afraid I can’t help. However, my dad and I are having difficulty getting info on my 6th grandfather born in Islay and I wondered if you had any tips on research in that specific area outside of Scotland’s People and church records. He was kidnapped at 9 years old on an Islay beach and came to the US through NY 10 years later (1761). There are no birth records we can find, so we don’t know his parents’ names. Only that his dad was a MacQuarrie/MacQueaghrie that died in Scotland in 1746 at the age of 26. No first name known, no wife known. :( Any info on researching for Islay would be helpful!

I know next to nothing about genetics other then I was a parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis. Unfortunately she died many years ago at 7 years of age.


I have had my DNA tested and of course I am a carrier of CF as as is my husband of CF, my other children are also carriers of CF.


 I know I am 60 % Scottish ( My dad was born in Islay. I know I am 20% Irish. My Great grandmother was born in Port Rush Ireland and her name was Elizabeth Rush. The other portions is European.


What I don t know is how this all works together. Any one have some educational materials they can recommend?
