General James Abercrombie was active, and not too successful, in the Seven Years War (French and Indian War in the Colonies). After a very decisive loss in 1758 he was recalled to England where he later served as a member of Parliament and eventually died there.
Combined in this profile is the information for another James Abercrombie who settled in Laurens, South Carolina about 1734, had several children and died there about 1782.
Could someone with more knowledge than I have about this time period and locale, please do some work and sort out who's who and separate the profiles?
If no one comes in to fix it, I'll make the attempt. But fair warning, I think some drastic changes are called for.
