Laclan MacGillivrary of
Scotland took a wife among the Creek nation. His son was Chief Alexander
MacGillivrary of the Creek Nation. I made inquiry to see if LacLan was of
the Chief's family. Today I received an email that he was...
There is a good book LACHLAN MACGILLIVRAY
INDIAN TRADER by E. Cashin.University of Georgia Press. which relates:
Apparently Lachlan grandfather Farquhar Macgillivray was the chief of the
clan in the late 17th century having been granted a Gov't job for his
loyalty to the Stuarts. He died in 1714. His sons ardent jacobites joined
the Stuart cause. The oldest son Farquhar II became the 7th chief, he was
William's older brother.William Made his home in Dunmaglas becuase he was
married to Janet McKintosh. Farquhar gave them and their hiers lifetime
tenancys.Lachlan was assurred a home for life before his birth. After
Lachlan established himself as trader he talked his cousin Capt. William
MacGillivray who was then chief of the clan and his brother John to come
to Georgia. Lachlan sponsored both financially. After the American
Revolution Lachlan and his Cousin(the Chief William MacG.) moved back to
Scotland. William married a Johanna MacKenzie of Fairburn, Scotland who
bore him an heir named John Lachlan. So it appears that Alexander MacG.
lineage was of the MacGillivrays chiefly family tree.
