Tina, While in a library in Minot, ND I ran across a book listing immagranta from Scotland that landed in NC. There wer three brothers, or at least three McLaurin,s. Currently, I am traveling around quite a bit, work related and am in Minot now. Will go to the library and will research this book again and send you the information. I am interested in this as one of the brothers? first name was Maurice which I think is too much of a coincidence, since it is not a common name.
