I have been searching years for any news on Daniel Mackay as he is my ancestor! Please contact me so we can share whatever info we may have together...I have been stumped for years at Richmond/Montgomery/Anson county and couldn't go back any further.

Here is how we're related:

Jessica Tedder Russell (that's me, with my married name)
FA - Thaddeus Robinson Tedder (I am related on my father's side, so I will add that info below)
MO - Deborah Hinson Jacobs

Grandparents:
Thaddeus Rolan Tedder (again continued below) and Mary Leona Robinson

Great-Grandparents:
James Franklin Tedder (again continued below) and Daisy Walker Ingold

Great-Great-Grandparents:
Rolan Mumford Tedder and AnnEliza Gardner

Great-Great-Great-Grandparents:
Mumford Dumas Tedder and Christian McKay

We have seen Christian's name posted in archives as Christine and Christian, but we know Christian to be correct.

No one in my family has much info on Daniel...not his DOB or where in Scotland he hails from. However, our McKay family was intwined closely with the MacDonald's here and the 'rumor' has always been that we hailed from the islands because of seeking shelter with the MacDonald's for a number of years (possibly Daniels parents/grandparents migrated there following the uprising) before making the journey to the new land. Each year here, there is a Tedder-MacDonald Reunion. It used to be HUGE in attendance, but has dwindled over the years because no one really seems to care anymore. We didn't even have Daniels' wife's name until you posted it here...nor is there any record of her here in the archives. My intent is to begin researching again in ernest in February in the archives in several counties here. There has to be something I have overlooked years' earlier when I was searching.
