I am looking for help but it's rather far back-Farquhar McRa who was a tailor in Edinburgh, came to Maryland (via virginia from Aberdeen possibly) abt 1783. Originally from Dornie, Kintail, Ross. He settled in Morgantown, W Va and married Susanna Ferguson, dau of John, son of Duncan Ferguson, tranported to MD. 1716 after fighting at the battle of Preston as a Jacobite rebel. Who were Farquhar's parents? Any info would be greatly appreciated.Family name originally spelled McRa, which denotes a particular branch of the family.
