This is the other one. It is labeled as Marjorie McGregor.
I just did the Family Finder upgrade and I found that I am cousins with several people in this group. I have no living male Mcgregor relatives and I am wondering if I can find anything out this way. I also have two photos that were in my grandmother's possession of two unknown McGregor family members. Likely from Ontario, Canada.
Whites from Scotland. My great Grandmother sitting bottom right was born a Hunter though. These are all Children of Robert White born 13 Dec 1857 Edinburgh Scotland. and m. Euphemia Hunter b.1863 Renfrewshire, Scotland
Trying to find family of my husband Ralph Harrison. On picture his grandmother Isabelle Aitchison, born MacGregor, born in Balquider, deid in Crief. Married to George Aitchison. Isabelle is direct decendant of Robert the Bruce and direct desendant of Rob Roy MacGregor because Rob Roy is direct decendant of Robert the Bruce trough king's daughter Margurie. Some family members on the project???
Thanks John & Richard, for addressing my question. I would appreciate your opinions on this TMRCA chart, which I produced using the FTDNA TiP calculator on 67 markers and 30yrs per generation. The two Griffins are my kin from County Kerry, both of whom have DYS590=7. The McFarlands and the MacGregor all have Scottish ancestors with no known connection with Ireland. They are all DYS590=8.
My conclusions are that my ancestor must have left Scotland for Ireland around 1600 AD +/- 100 years. He probably wasn't alone, but came with a family group. And the DYS590 mutation must have occurred at about the same time.
Am I putting too much faith in these calculations? (I know that TMRCA's can be tricky to interpret).
This is my grandmother Margaret Ann McGregor 1903-1969, born in Michigan. She is the daughter of Hector A McGregor of Ontario, Canada. Granddaughter of Hector McGregor of Wallaceburg, Canada. If anyone has any information on this line I would appreciate it. As far as I know I can't do the DNA testing because she is my paternal grandmother. Thank you.
This is my 3X great Uncle and Aunt John Orr and Elizabeth McKell. They were a handsome couple! John Orr's Sister is my 3X great grandmother, Elizabeth Orr. She married James McKell! Thought I would share some of the Orr's of MacGregor.
Kit 325152.....This photo was taken at Shirley, Van Buren, AR in 1911-1914. This is Davis family (MacGregor really). I believe short guy in back may be another one of the brothers born about 1863 in Choctaw MS. The reason I believe this is another one of the brothers is because of the stories I've heard about the man....carrying belongings on a stick with cloth wrapped around it...which it sort of looks like on the right hand side of photo. Again...just guessing. They lived in foothills of Ozarks in Ar and in Choctaw, when we went there it seemed to be rolling hills, a little more than what we have here in TX, but not real high peaks by anymeans.
This is the last pic I have of the brothers. I have another pic of Davis family. I have narrowed down the timeline of the photo thanks to the floods in AR.....when the bridge was built, washed out, then built again. I believe it has one of the other brothers in it, but not sure. Absolutely two different looks in the family...some dark hair, dark complexion, hazel eyes, others look to be red-strawberry....some with freckles..some not...but more fair skin....but still have light colored eyes. This brother was born Choctaw MS 1870.
kit 325152...this is our direct ancestor...he does not look like a red head...lol but has some wave to the hair for sure....lol... He was born in 1868 Choctaw MS. This is our 2nd great grandfather. Does he resemble any of your MacGregor's out there or any other alias of that name??? You know I've kind of decided, the good thing we are MacGregor the bad thing we are MacGregor....there are too many surnames associated and we have a name that isn't even a known alias..
This is oldest son of my most distant male ancestor. He was born in 1861, probably in Choctaw MS. His last name was Davis, but our "Adam" was not Davis, it was MacGregor. Grouped under Ian Cam, kit 325152. There were 6 boys and 1 girl that we are sure of born to this family. I have pics of three of them that I will post. The pics aren't in the best of condition, but super happy to have them. Yes red hair runs in the family, My brother that took the ydna test has red hair and so do I. We also have several sets of twins in the family, not sure where that came from..... :)
Here is one of the genealogies I have come across pertaining to Gregor/Giric. There are other variations of this one some similar, some very different. Does anyone have any opinion on the matter? If so please post :)
