GROUP 1

Kit - #24898 Lineage of Clan Commander

Oldest Proven Ancestor. Believed oldest known ancestor is Neil McDiffie (b. 1687) of Argyll, Scotland.
John Macphie and Catherine Cameron (m. 1773)

Summary. The family is known to have lived on the Ross of Mull, Argyll, Scotland, from at least the second generation onwards, perhaps initially drawn by the kelp industry.  Their seven children (4m 3f) married there and at least some migrated to North America or Australasia.  All lines of descent from the second generation parents have yet to be traced.

Kit - 70OTC9

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  John McDuffie - b Scotland, (Argyllshire?)

Summary:  The earliest evidence we have for an ancestral line to Scotland is John McDuffie (1755-1810),who emigrated from Scotland (from exactly which part of Scotland we are currently unsure) to North Carolina. In 1776, his spouse gave birth to a son also named John (1776-1850),who also resided in North Carolina. We are fairly certain of the above information although we cannot definitively verify its accuracy. What we can definitively prove is that John had a son, Alexander (1820-1897), who emigrated from North Carolina to Telfair County, GA and married Penelope Pickren (1832-1883). Among many daughters, Alexander had one son, John A. McDuffie (1859-1920), also of Telfair County, GA.   John's thirteenth child, Rufus Henry McDuffie (1912-1982) of Preston, GA, is my grandfather. My father, Charles Henry McDuffie of Sautee, GA, will provide our sample.

Kit - #VMZ552

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  Neil McPhee bc1781 Colonsay, Argylshire, Scotland

Summary:  This line is one of the most interesting as it is the only one which stretches from the distant past on Colonsay up to the present.  As Colonsay is the ancestral home of the McPhees and formerly the McDuffies this is highly significant.  There is every reason to believe that the forebears of Neil McPhee also lived on Colonsay and may have been McDuffies.  It will be interesting to see which subsequent test results match with this "reference" result in the MacFie ancestral homeland.

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  John McDuffee and "Matchless" Martha McDuffee of siege of Londonderry 1689?

Summary:  John McFee (also once he signed as John McDuffee, and all his family changed their names to McDuffee after he died in 1752). John McFee and supposedly three of his brothers (perhaps cousins?) came to America in the 1720's. Descendants of the fifth brother came over somewhat later. Extensive genealogical research has been carried out on descendants of these families (over 1700 names). These men were probably grandsons (or sons?) of "Matchless" Martha McDuffee and her husband John McDuffee, who were in the siege of Londonderry, Northern Ireland, in 1689.  John McFee settled in Rochester, NH. Daniel McDuffee (also called McFee very early on and not the same person as the Captain Daniel McDuffee in this line) settled in Londonderry, NH, as did his brother Archibald. Another brother Matthew apparently settled in MA. The fifth brother, Mansfield, emigrated from Northern Ireland to England, but his son William apparently came to America, probably to NJ.

Oldest Proven Ancestor. John MacPhie born Bracadale Parish c. 1765 died c. 1832, Roag, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Summary. My line of Macphies are, as far as I can trace, from the I of Skye. As the records on the NW of the island do not go back before 1802 (parish of Bracadale) and 1817 (in Duirinish), there is little chance of finding more positive information.

Our first records pick up the MacPhee/Macphies in Ullinish and Eabost in Bracadale parish with no other known Macphies in the neighbouring Duirinish parish (at least not in the militia records ? age group 14 to 45 years) so it may have only been a few families or even just a few "warriors" retreating to Skye after the defeat at Culloden to escape their pursuers. Certainly all the Macphies that I have on record on the North West of the island appear to come from these roots.

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  Duncan McPhee and Anne Cameron

Summary: 

My great grandfather was a John McPhee, whom for identification purposes we refer to as John Inverary McPhee.

We have a photo of this gentleman even though we have thought up until recently that he was born in 1796, but it is possible now that he was born in 1801. The photo on a glass plate, and behind glass,was taken at his daughter Isabella’s wedding to James Rollo Stewart in Geelong Victoria in 1860, before they went to New Zealand.

 

John Inverary McPhee's parents were Duncan McPhee and Ann Cameron.

It is widely considered possible that this Duncan McPhee and Ann Cameron were also the parents of Hugh Donald McPhee whose descendants came to Australia and then on to New Zealand in the 1850's.

James McPhee ( 1758 - 1842 ) of Kilmuir, Inverness-shire, Scotland immigrated to America in 1775 aboard the Glasgow.  Conscripted into the  British 84th Regiment of Foote, served in New- foundland.  Received a land  grant in Hants County for his service.  Married Nancy (Ann ) (sir name  unknown, passably a Micmac Indian maiden) born 1773 married 1789 in Kennetcook,  Hants County, Nova Scotia.  They had 13 children,  Evan,Catherine,Donald,Mary Catherine,Christie Ann,Allan, (died before1804),John,Allan,Elizabeth,James,William,Alexander(1812),Peter.   Alexander McPhee (1812-1884) and Catherine Nix (1818-aft1891, never found grave site) Hants County, Nova Scotia.  They had 8 children, Christie,  James, William, Elizabeth, Mary,Helen (Ellen),George Alexander 1855,Albert.  George Alexander McPhee (1855-1930) Hants County, Nova Scotia and Margaret Hubbert, immigrated to America in 1873 with parents, 1 of 8 siblings (1862-1946)(County Cork, Youghal, Ireland, married in Lexington, Mass. 1880,  moved to Minnesota and lived there until death.  They had 5 children, Wilbur,Mary,Marguerite,George,Frank 1897, born Frank,changed to Francis for  baptism.   Francis Alexander McPhee,  born in Kerkoven, Minn (1897-1972) married Beatrice Marie Pawek (1898-1974) in Bemidji, Minn.1926.  They had 7  children, Alexander died at birth 1936.  I am one of the 6 remaining  children.  Any help would be appreciated in locating the nationality of James' wife Nancy and her burial site, also Catherine Nix's burial site.  God willing and the Arizona creek don't rise (wet winter, ha ha) we will travel to Minnesota and visit relatives in Canada, Nova Scotia and the New England states.  In our trip to Scotland and Colonsay last May we didn't   find out much before 1772 in the Inverness Library.  It seems that John McPhee (1725) is not related to James  McPhee (1758)  However they both came to America on the  same ship in 1775.  Some genealogists say he provably not a son as John  (1725) didn't claim him for the land grant.  My theory was that he was old  enough and had served in the 84th and was able to get his one land.  However  this DNA test has shown them not to be father and son.  I also have extensive research on  John McPhee (1725) born in Easter Bunloit, Scotland where we also visited.   I cannot find parents for either John 1725 or James 1758.   John's first  child he claimed for extra land was Evan 1760 so James could still be the first born

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  Mark McAfee 1798-after 1870 (after the 1870 census) Athens Co., Ohio

Summary:  Mark may have been born in Pennsylvania, New York or Canada. Possibly his ancestors were Tories who were moved to Canada from the U.S. and who returned later on their own. The  McAfees in Ohio were mostly farmers with a cooper and some storekeepers included. They seemed to name their children somewhat randomly. Mark McAfee and Mary Weatherby were married in 1818 in Athens Co. Ohio, according to county records and the rest of their line appears in county records and various censuses

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  MaHaffey Surname group

Summary: 
Regarding MaHaffey, I dug through my papers and saw that it matches Niall of Nine Hostages (if I understand correctly) with exceptions at 391 (12 while Niall's is 11), 439 (13 while Niall's is 12), 458 (18 while Niall's is 17), 464a (14 while Niall's is 15).  One off in each case, (and with two at the fast changing alleles/loci 385b and 464a), that makes it matches for 23/25 I think.  I've compiled an annotated index of Covenanters (1600s and Americans with same surnames) to aid my research on my McHaffie ancestor, banished per oral tradition.  It is about 2,000 plus pages. I'd long noted things that made me think the McHaffies link not to McDuffies, but rather to Neilsons of southwestern Scotland.  Due to age and related problems, I am cutting back my research and contacts.  One thing I found was that Lands of Kellechaffe (about 3 mi n.e. of Stranraer, Wigtownshire) were granted by King Robert I to John son of Neil of Carrick (per Black's Surnames), and Neilsons built castle 14th c. at Kellechaffe, then in cir 1570, Craigcaffie Tower castle was built by a Neilson.  (I know only that John's half-sister Marjorie was mother of King Robert I and her descendants were the royal line, but nothing about John except that his father Neil of Carrick d. 1256, was Regent of Scotland, was son of Duncan, son of Gilbert, son of Fergus, Lord of Galloway who d. 1161 or 1166.)  Cathey researchers in same area indicate they found Craigcathie and also can find items back to 1400s.  Black's Surnames of Scotland hints that there seems to be a tie of name McHaffie and the Kellechaffe owned by Neilsons.  McHaffie is also found McIlhaffie, McKilhaffy, McHalffey, Mahaffie mainly in or near Wigtownshire, and in colonial America McHaffy, Machafee, and as MaHaffey in 1860s Virginia).   Thomas Makillehochufy, Whithorn, Wigtownshire, is in 1416 record.  I want to let some of the other McHaffies or kin know about this finding so am sending copies.  I would also like them to know that Niall of the Nine Hostages lived in the 5th century per material I found awhile back at www.familytreedna.com  and/or www.ysearch.org

Oldest Proven Ancestor:  John Sharp McAffee.

Summary:  John Sharp McAffee was born near Bushmills, Antrim, Ireland, the son of Samuel McAffee and Catherine Sharp.  Emigrating to Scotland sometime before 1835, he married Ann Lyons Thompson in Alexandria, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.  She was born in Ballylough, Antrim, Ireland, the daughter of Samuel Thompson and Sarah Lyons.  Samuel was the first born of this union (b.1844 in Alexandria), followed by Sarah (b.1846 in Greenock).  the 1851 census shows John and family living in Greenock with his occupation listed as Gardener.  Children, Ephraim (b.1856 in Clarkston), Moroni (b.1858 in Alexandria) and Eliza (b.1860 in Alexandria) were all born in Scotland.  By the 1861 census there were 7 in the family, all living in Bonhill, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.

Desiring to join fellow members of the Mormon Church in Utah, USA, John set sail from Liverpool, England in 1862 aboard the "Manchester" for America.  Once there he traveled to Florence (Omaha) Nebraska where he was outfitted and joined a Mormon Pioneer wagon train heading for Utah and the promise of a new life.  In Salt Lake City, Utah he worked as a Stonemason on the church's temple.  His family were able to join him in 1864, having made the same journey from Scotland to Utah.  Staying a short time in Salt Lake City, they then moved to help settle Heber City and Charleston, Utah.

Submitted by Norm MacPhee

Here is a sketch of my Macphee history, some related to Isle of Skye, but the early part is from snippets of course:

1. Donald Macphee had 8 sons and three daughters. Donald is my paternal ggg grandfather. We know not who Donald or when he was born, or who he married , but he is considered a crofter.  

2. Norman Macphee, of Parish Milwaig, Skye was one of Donald's 8 sons. Norman is my paternal gg grandfather. Norman married Annie [Margaret?] BRUCE born ca 1840 Parish Milwaig, Skye. One story tells that Donald's son Norman died at sea, while fishing.  How he left us, though, is much in doubt.  [The Macphee's have no great love for the open ocean, and none are natural swimmers.  You may remember the story in John McPhee's the Crofter and the Laird where the Colonsay Macphee expresses as much as they snag lobsters off Oronsay at low tide.] Norman and Annie/Margaret (BRUCE) Macphee had: Neil; Malcolm;Flora;Effie;Mary; Angus. 

3. Angus Macphee, born in 1862 Glendale, Skye. Angus is my paternal great grandfather. Computing from Flora's information, both his grandfather and father would be 34 respectively, which fits the time frame.  Anyway, around 1880, Angus left Skye at a relatively wee age to seek his fortune with a railway job in Kilmarnock, then a transport hub.  He left speaking only Gaelic, but shortly acquired English through self-teaching and went on to be a prolific reader and supporter of education.   I read a letter he sent to my father, his grandson, in Canada.  The writing is immaculate.   He was a signalman on the railway, and progressed to the control house. Angus married Annie Minto Clara Wilson ORR at Bellesland farm, Kilmaurs, June 26, 1890. Angus 1862 died 9/01/1932 Kilmarnock. Annie died July 4, 1928, aged 60 years. They had 5 Macphee children: Norman, 1891; David "Davie" Archibald Macphee, 1893-1980; Margaret Bruce; 1898; Douglas Wallace, 1899-1994; and Hector Alexander, 1904-1904.

4. Davie Macphee, born in Kilmarnock 1893, died Prince Rupert, BC 1980. He is my paternal grandfather. Davie moved to Springburn Glasgow where he worked on the Clyde in shipbuilding.  I suspect there would have been some relatives there, but there are also pictures I have of relatives that came to visit. Davie married 11/10/1916 Established Church Scotston, Glasgow to Mary Stewart McROBBIE born 6/03/1896 Paisley, SCT. Mary's parents: William and Margaret (DALGARNO) MacROBBIE; Mary's grandparents: James MacROBBIE; John and Massie (MILLER) DALGARNO. Davie, Mary and their son Angus Macphee left Scotland around 1926, and went to Prince Rupert, BC, Canada to be with in-laws who were active in the construction industry.   [That is how you and your family became acquainted with my grandfather Davie.   And thus you know my father, Angus who worked at the pulp mill with your father, and then you and I met in high school, and again at a fishing plant.]

5. Angus Macphee, born in Springburn. Glasgow April 1917. Angus is my father. He married 1941 Prince Rupert, BC to Dora Phylis ARNEY born 1919. [Angus was National President of the PPWC, affiliated to the CCU]. Angus and Dora Macphee's children:  Ennis, 1943, now GREENE ; David, 1947; Margaret, 1951, now HANDEL; Norman, 1955. Seven grandchildren: 3 Macphee; two GREENE; 2 HANDEL.

6. Norman Macphee 1955 Prince Rupert, BC.

7. Ian David Austin Macphee 1990. Ottawa, ON, Canada.

I would be most interested for the further details on the above.  I see that Flora has added some background to Donald's marriage and birth and death.

From Nancy McDonald Teruya 

I was reading on your yDNA site that you had Prince Edward Island MacPhee's in the project (or persons whose ancestors settled there).   I'm a McDonald (last known ancestor is James R. McDonald of Kings County, Prince Edward Island, b. 1818).  His wife was Catherine McPhee (b.c1824).  We believe she was the Catherine McPhee of Aberdeen Road, first cousin to Roddy Joe McPhee and therefore, most likely the daughter of Angus McPhee (b. 1802, d. 1874 Selkirk, Kings Co., PEI) and Ann McDonald (of Big Donald group, Souris Line Road, Kings Co., PEI).  Angus McPhee is the son of Archibald (Ronnie Archie) McPhee (b. 1768 Scotland, d. 1828) and Mary McCormack.

 Archibald 'Ronnie Archie' McPhee and Mary McCormack had the following children:

2     i.    CHRISTY2.

       ii.   MARY (#5066).  She was baptized 18 January 1810 ("Roman Catholic Book").

       iii. ANGUS (#4933) was born 1802.  Angus died 20 April 1874 in Selkirk, at 71 years of age.  He married ANN MACDONALD .  (Ann MacDonald is #5064.)  Ann was born 1804.   Ann died 1844 at 40 years of age.  Sarah was d/o Donald of Souris Line Road. Homesteaded with brother Joseph at Bear River before 1874.

3     iv.   ARCHIBALD 'ARCHIE BAN' was born 1806

4     v.    JOSEPH 'RED JOE' was born 1812

5     vi.   RONALD was born 1816

I was wondering if you could forward this email to your PEI members?  I would appreciate it, if it is possible.

I've also transcribed a related MacPhee document, which a friend, also a MacPhee/Macdonald of PEI (but lot 55 rather than my lots 42, 43, 44), scanned when she was in Salt Lake City doing research. It may be of interest to some of the PEI researchers.  It's also posted on the Island Register webpage.

Submitted by Bernie McPhee

When, after his marriage to Charlotte MacArthur in 1826, John Inverary McPhee went to live at Killiechonate in Lochaber, he was in the household of the MacDONELLS at that residence. (We might note that Donald MacArthur of Limestone Ridge in South Australia who was a close kinsman of the MacDonells of Keppoch was a close kinsperson of Charlotte MacArthur just mentioned.) 

The MacDONELL at that residence was John MacDonell Killichonate commonly called John Dubh Aberarder, and his wife Catherine most interestingly was the daughter of Colonel Alexander MacDonell Keppoch, who was killed at the Battle of Culloden.  Catherine died at the age of 90, three years after John Inverary McPhee had moved to Killiechonate.

Why is all this important?  Because in our family there was the saying: "Remember the MacDonells of Keppoch", or in another way of saying it: "Remember that you are related to the MacDonells of Keppoch."

Killiechonate is a long standing residence for MacDonells of Keppoch. Stuart Macdonald in his “Back to Lochaber” The Pentland Press Edinburgh 1994, notes that families in Lochaber had been there in roughly the same places for centuries.

McPhee had been connected with MacDonell from the very beginning in Lochaber.  As far back as about 1400, a certain Miss McPhee who was the daughter of McPhee of Glen Spean, married the 2nd Chief of Keppoch MacDonells and thence she was to become the mother of two Keppoch Chiefs (the third and fifth Chiefs), and the grandmother of two Keppoch Chiefs (the fourth and sixth Chiefs) and the mother in law of the first Captain of Clan Cameron, Allan of the Raids, who built the Chapel at the Cemetery of Cille Choirill in Lochaber. The MacDonells were entrenched in Lochaber, on both sides of the Spean River, and the McPhees were embedded in Lochaber with them even from the earliest times, and starting this intimate association soon after the death of the First Lord of the Isles when the Keppoch MacDonells were granted the Lordship of Lochaber.  One can only presume that the McPhee of Glen Spean family of Angus McPhee had been in Lochaber for hundreds of years before this, to be noble enough to marry into the family of Alexander Carrach MacDonell Keppoch, whose grandmother was Margaret Stewart, the sister of King Robert II King of the Scots.

And here in 1841 we have John Inverary McPhee living a charmed life, as were other McPhee families in Lochaber, those who were still under the special patronage or protection of the remnant of the MacDonells of Keppoch, and under the protection of the Camerons, until in 1853, after the death of his wife Charlotte MacArthur, John Inverary McPhee brought all his seven children to Australia.

In 1841, according to the Census of that year, there were 337 MacPhee people in 45 family groups and others singly, registered as living in Lochaber, and most of them were still there in 1851. Eighty per cent of all these MacPhees were registered as having been born in the area in which they were found to be living in 1841. Six of these 337 MacPhee people were born in the 1750’s.  It was only later, in the years 1852 to 1855 that Lochaber lost hundreds of McPhee emigrants to Australia.

Joining the project

When you join this project you will need to provide as much detail as you can about your direct male ancestral line (see the example above).  Try to include place of origin in Scotland and/or a country of destination.  Mention occupation if there is a common thread and the most common male first names; these are often transmitted from generation to generation and can discriminate one distinct line from another.  (Feel free to write a couple paragraphs, but don’t paste in a long genealogy report.  Feel free to speculate, but label this as speculation.  Pay particular attention to anything that might help link unassociated lines. The details you provide will be added to this page.  Do not put anything that is sensitive, personal, or you do not feel comfortable posting!
