I am an amateur genealogist now for about 10 years.  I am hunting collaboration for Clan Johnson/MacIain of Ardnamurchan.  Our family to the present we believe begins with Daniel Johnson (b. 1740?), who married into the McCurry family and immigrated with them and the MacDonalds to Cape Fear in August 1774.  His son, Daniel Franklin Johnson (1778-1848), born in Catawba, NC moved to Franklin, GA in 1800.

Welcome to WikiTree. There already is a Daniel Franklin Johnson (1780-1851), born in NC and who died in GA. I realize that the birth and death years do not match exactly but his father, Daniel Johnson, was born in Scotland, married A. McCurry in Scotland, and immigrated to the USA. Sources are needed. Here is the link for Daniel Franklin Johnson:

Welcome to WikiTree, Joseph! I see that you are already getting some good advice from some of our wonderful members.

They were from Scotland, there were a lot of people from Scotland who came to North Carolina during the 1700s. When you get to the profile that you may need some help with post in G2G and tell us what you know and what you are looking for or trying to figure out. Link the profile to the post so that the people who help you can access it. That will make it easier for one or more of us to help.

I hope that you enjoy WikiTree!
