Alexander Charteris, sometimes gardener, lived in Townhead and Dumfrieshire and had daughters Jane Lenox and Anne Charters and sons John Lenox and John Charters..(don't ask me??). He is listed on a church record as being from Townhead and on a later deed as having been married to Mary Lenox. Jane's name is Lenox, Anne's name is Charteris. Both daughters are listed as been brought before the Kirk Session to admit having illegitimate children with soldiers. The North Carolina deed mentioning Anne Charteris confirms by naming Anne's child, Sarah Lenox Thompson, wife of John McKennel. Jane marries Ronald McDonald and moves to America, leaving children in Scotland. When Jane's daughter Jane Lenox (McDonald) marries George Irving, they move to Rockingham County N.C. USA and are reunited with Jane McDonald and her husband Ronald. I am wondering if anyone in Scotland or America can give insight into Charters/Irving/McDonalds I am descended from Jane and George, but not so sure about Ronald McDonald.
