I Have DNA with Familytree and have been in contact with several participants who are 23/25 matches to me and have MacDonald or McDonald ancestors. My earliest Smith ancestor is Gabriel Smith Sr. who was a probale son of John Smith-little river of Anson Co. who served as adjutant for the Loyalist Scottish Highlanders at Moore;s Creek Bridge. He was captured with all those Macdonalds and sent to Phildelphia and spent a year in prison . John's wife has never been known. Looking for any MacDonald woman who married a Smith man in the 1740-1760 time frame in that Anson-Cumberland-Moore NC area.
