Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (Mc)

I am a descendant of Duncan McQuagge who lived in Walton County Florida and was born in North Carolina in the 1760`s or 1770`s. His parents may have lived in Anson or Richmond Counties, North Carolina. My family tradition has it that three brothers came from Scotland on prison ship and landed in North Carolina. They had been expelled from Scotland for killing the king`s deer and were gunsmiths by trade.When the king`s guard would confiscate their firearms they would simply go home and make more. He had four sons, John M. who settled and pioneered Fountain Floride. Norman, who stayed in Walton County,lived next to his parents and reared a large family. Then there was Samuel was murdered by John Amons whose case was tried in Calhoun County. The fourth son was Daniel, who was born about 1794, moved to Jackson County Florida and started the line to my family. I would very mush like to know the McQuagge`s family origin in Scotland and what, if any, clan affiliation they may have had.
