Laclan MacGillivrary

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.
