Michael MacFarlane - b. 1785 in Glasgow
He was born to John(?) in Glasgow around the time that the MacFarlane clan lands (at Arrochar) were sold off.

Michael emigrated to County Leitrim, Ireland where he went by the surname "McPharlin" an apparent homage to the Gaelic "softening" of the name MacPharlain.
We're somewhat sure that everyone that spells his or her last name "McPharlin" is a descendant of Michael.
Any clues on his lineage would be greatly appreciated.
