SC and IL McCreary/McCrary DNA testing
Any McCreary/McCrary's who find their ancestry back to the Fishing Creek area of Chester County, South Carolina and/or White Pond area, Barnwell County, South Carolina are invited to participate in DNA testing to see if you are a match to those already proven.
We believe Robert McCrary born 1742 in Ireland and died 14 Oct 1814 in White Pond, Barnwell District, South Carolina had two wives.The first one, we think, was Margaret Gaston, d/o John Gaston and Esther Waugh and the second wife was Mary Fortune born 14 Jun 1746 in Ireland and died 10 Jun 1818 in White Pond.The last wife's children are proven either by documents or DNA but we need descendants of the children we know of who were born to Margaret Gaston, they being John McCreary, Esquire and Rev. Samuel McCreary.Both are supposed to have died in Chester Co., SC. Also a group of McCreary's moved to Illinois from SC in the early 1800's, possibly to Jefferson, Wayne or Marion Counties.We would like to have proof of their connection to this SC family.
Please contact me if your family goes back to these areas and you have hit a brick wall.
