Anyone researching the McElwees who settled in Abbeville, S.C. c1762? David McElwee was there and soon after arrived John McElwee. They married Cochrans, Carmichaels and Blacks and these McElwees were related to the large McElwee family from York County, S. C. who migrated from Virginia in 1766 fromm Virginia. Most McElwees that I have followed came from Northern Ireland ( Think Scotch-Irish Presbyterians) and entered America through Philadelphia or Camden,N. J. c 1750. Some went to Winchester, Va.. Some may have settled in Bath County, Va. After more than 20 years of researching the McElwee/McIlwee, all have led back to a small area of County Donegal, Ireland called Fanad. See Lord Leitrim. Would love to hear from anyone reseaching the McElwee/McIlwee family. McElwees still live in Fanad, County Donegal. Happy Hunting to all my McElwee/McIlwee hunters!!! Roy McIlwee, Scranton, Pa.
