JAMES HUNTER, b. 1617-1620, Dogland, Argyllshire, Scotland, married in 1641 to Jane Campbell, b. 1631-d. ?, in Glenarchy, Scotland.

Jane was the daughter of Matthew Campbell, b. 1607-d. 1636, Skipness, Argyllshire, Scotland; and Elizabeth Campbell, b. 1610 Kilberrie, Argyllshire, Scotland; and d. 1704, probably Argyllshire.

They had one son, Robert Hunter, b. 5 Aug. 1644, Kirkmichael, Ayrshire, who married Agnes Patterson, b. 1648, in 1661. You'll notice this is a different birthdate and birth place than what you already have. Robert died 11 Sept. 1708, Perthshire, Scotland.

They also had a daughter, Jennett [Janet] Hunter, b. 1655, Argyll, who married abt. 1685-1686 to James Malcolm Patterson, b. 1645, Argyll. Jannett and her husband had one son, Duncan, b. 1687-1690, Argyll, d. 1750, Cumberland Co., NC.

Sometime after the birth of their son, Jennett and James Patterson emigrated to the United States, settling in Cumberland Co., NC. Jennett [Hunter] and James Patterson both died in the year 1700, Cumberland Co., NC.

Duncan Patterson married about 1700-1701 to Margaret MacKinnon [b. 1670, Argyll; d. 1740, Robeson, NC]. Duncan and Margaret had two girls:

Mary Ann, b. 1702, Edgecombe Co., NC; d. 1745 Robeson Co., NC; and

Sarah, b. 1726 {I'm not sure that birthdate is right}; d. 26 April 1793, Span, Johnson Co., GA. Sarah may or may not have been married.

Mary Ann Patterson married Robert Locklear, b. 1670, Edgecombe Co., NC; d. 24 May 1749, NC. Mary Ann and Robert Locklear had the following children:
Thomas, 1724-1800;
Bennett, 1730-?;
Randall, 1730-?;
Major, b. 1733-d. 1846; and
William b. 1740-?.
*Mary Margaret, b. 1749-?;
*Sarah, b. 1749-d. 1780; and
*numerous others attributed to this marriage.

{*I'm not sure whether these Locklear children are in proper birth order. Mary Ann may have had twins in 1730, but it's impossible to have children after you are dead--IF she died in 1745! So, either Robert Locklear re-married and had more children OR these children ARE Mary Ann's, all born after 1730, and Mary Ann lived long after 1745, her supposed death date.}

I have more information I will either post or you can e-mail me for more info at

Good luck untangling this family!
