I found these deed listings under Robert "McCreary" and wife Mary for Fairfield County, S.C. and thought it was supposed to be for McCleary.These were found in deed abstract books written by Clara Langley and Brent Holcombe.I hope the information helps someone:
2/8/1778.Robert McCreary and Mary McCreary to Joseph Owen.Land originally granted to Mary Fortune and next door to land of William Fortune.
I also saw reference to another deed from 1774 with John Fortune as a witness.
John, John Jr., William and Mary Fortune got grants on the Jackson Creek in Fairfield County, S.C. in 1767.I would be willing to bet that Robert McCleary's wife was Mary Fortune.
