I'm looking for into on a Donald McDonald (died 1787 or 1827 conflicting dates in sources) who immigrated to Moore County, NC, from I believe North Uist in 1772. He married an Effie Martin (died 1823) after immigrating. His neighbors in North Carolina were Donald Campbell of Scalpay and Catherine MacDonald (daughter of Ranald I of Baleshare). They purchased land adjacent to the land he purchased in NC. I've scoured North Carolina documents and books. Every known list of Highlanders in North Carolina, etc and can find nothing other than what was published in the book, Between the Creeks, A History of Highland Scots immigration into Moore County, NC.mostly relating to his descendants. The courthouse in Moore County burned in the 1800's so documentation is scarce. Do you think there is any chance at all I could find out who his parents were? Where should I look?
