About Our Family Research


I am researching the McLeod Family of Sarasota Florida. Have names and dates back to 1759 and Alexander McLeod of Mingenish, Isle of Skye, Scotland, who Married a Mary McCaskill in 1785. they moved their family to Kershaw County So. Carolina at the turn of the century. thier son William McLeod is my GreatGreatGreat Grandfather. He married Sarah Catherine Bethune, of Kershaw So. Car. in 1818. they had 11 Children ( 3 died before the age of 6). About 1830, William moved his family to Walton Co. in Northern Florida. It was here in Alaquah, My greatGreat Grandfather, Norman Bethune McLeod was born on Sept. 8, 1843.

Norman B. McLeod Served in the War between the States in the 1st regiment, Florida, Infantry, Co. "E". He served under and along side his two brothers. they all survived the war and fought at battles in Chickmaugua and Murfeesboro, Tenn, and ended the war at a final battle against General Shermans forces at the battle of Bentonville, No. Car.

After the war, Norman moved down the gulf Coast of Florida and married Georgianna Locklier. They had 8 children including My Great Grand Father, Wilkinson Charles McLeod, born in 1892. He had an only child Robert Lee McLeod Sr. My father is R.L. McLeod Jr. and I am the 3rd. I have a son Robert L. McLeod VI.

My search now is for the passage from Scotland and some of their life history in the Scottish Highlands.

I hope you enjoy and if you have additional information on this Clan of McLeods please contact me.
