My Great, Great Grandparents were Colon and Harriet McRae both born in NC around 1810-1814. They are well documented in Talbot County GA, Upson County GA and Barbour County AL from 1840-1870. Harriets maiden name was has variously been reported as: Leader (Leadon, Leaton) or Cruise (Crews, Cruse). There is some conjecture (based on Scottish naming conventions) that Colons father may have been named William and Harriets mother may have been named Martha. So, I am looking for the next link, William, born in Scotland and Martha (maybe) born in NC probably around 1780.
