I am a descendant of "The Preacher", William McGregor who was the father of twin sons Ezekiel and Willis McGregor. Ezekiel and Willis McGregor married twin sisters Sarah and Susan Ware, respectively. My direct maternal heritage comes down from Ezekiel McGregor and Sarah Ware McGregor.
For anyone researching their McGregor genealogy in colonial America with a William McGregor ancestor, you know how difficult a task this has been for so many of us. Couple this with the fact that so many of our ancestors were forced to change their names during the Highland clearances and some days I did little more than throw up my hands in frustration. After researching for many years I grew weary and put aside most of my effort.
I started this page in an attempt to regroup and reconnect to what I had documented in the past, with a strong desire to improve and expand upon that research for the future.
I live in Salem, MA, but my immediate family originated in the state of Mississippi. I was born in the Mississippi Delta, Coahoma County, but my mother was born in the "hills" of Mississippi, Pontotoc County. Prior to that time her McGregor family was in Warren County, TN after leaving North Carolina. I have yet to determine exact locations in Scotland where they were located before their arrival in colonial America.
Surnames that I research are: McGregor, Rea, Herring, Westmoreland, Ware, Hightower, Herndon, Dodson, Swaim, Anderson, Flowers
I welcome any and all corrections to duplications, omissions and errors. I figure I need all the help I can get in this endeavor otherwise, I may never get it all done.
