I know I have seen questions regarding this listed here before but can't seem to locate the post, so I apologize for being repetitive. My ancestor, Colin C McRae appears in LA 1830, and I can't locate any information on him before this date. The information I have is listed below. Corrections are welcome, and any information on his parents, birth place,etc are much appreciated!
Colin Cornelius (?) McRae
b: 1 Aug 1797 Scotland
d: 24 May 1835 Red River County, Texas
married on 18 Feb 1830 to Eliza Dyer in LA (she was b:21 May 1811 Buyosara, LA, d: 11 Jun 1887 San Antonio, TX)
had 4 children: William Lafayette, Robert Washington, Annette and Colin Dickson McRae.
I am of the Robert W McRae line. I have found info that listed both Colin and Robert as ancestors in the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Upon contacting them, I found there was no info on either Robert or Colin. I have read that Colin was a son of Farquar McRae, but being that there are countless Farquar and Colin McRaes, I am having a hard time finding any information supporting this. Dates do not match (tho mine may be wrong) and I have no idea when he arrived in America, if he was even born in Scotland. As I said, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help!!
