John McPherson of Bladen Co. b. c1760, m. Abigail MULFORD (c1775-1843), daughter of Ephriam MULFORD & Elizabeth BROWN. Children:

1. James Mitchell m. Sophia SMITH
2. John Jr. m. Mahalia DYKES
3. Archibald
4. William A.
5. Flora Jane (1807-1854) m. William S. RAMSEY
6. David
7. Elizabeth Ann

John d. about 1829. About 1838 the rest of the family moved to Americus, GA.

NOTE: Be aware that there are at least two other John McPhersons in the area about the same time, one in Robeson Co. and one in Cumberland Co. To make matters more confusing, I believe that land in these counties was once a part of Bladen Co. Because of common names, I think all of these families are related, but I cannot determine exactly how.
