Dear C.H, Thanks so much for your answer. We are descended from James McDonald, first found 1760, Cumberland Co. N.C. He married Sara Matthews, at least by the time he received the land patent. 200 Acres in Cumberland Co. N.C. In 1761 he had sold the land to his Father-in law, Thomas Matthews, wealthy land owner and blacksmith, but Thomas couldn't read or write. We found James Sr.'s will,1810 Jefferson Co. Ga. Children listed, Mary, married a Kirk. James Jr., Matthews, 1769, Bible record, Jacob, 1770's and William, born 1781, Bible record and Army record.James move his family to Montgomery Co. N.C. by 1779, when the Indian lands had been opened up. The are on the census of 1790,Montgomery with Mary missing. I believe that your Jacob is possibly a son of our Jacob. James and family had moved to Chesterfield Co. and buying and selling land in Lancaster and Chesterfield. By naming their first son William Mathias,(Mathias is Scottish for Matthews) we believe your Jacob is a desendent of James Sr. We have a 37 marker perfect match on the DNA of a Jeffrey L. McDonald. He thinks his first was a John. We are decended from Somerled, of the Royal line of Clan Donald.We have the common names of McDonald, James, William and John. William is our line, proven, emigrated to Ga.and Ala.and Miss. Do you have a living McDonald who could have the DNA test done with World Family Tree? It is $150, 25 marker, I would gladly pay for.Let me know what you think. Sincerely, Ruth M. Scruggs
