I have an Augustine McCarty that moved to KY in the late 1790's - 1800, there was also a Henry, Daniel, Ezekiel, James in the area at the time. Augustine married a woman named Hannah, who was born in South Carolina and may have come to Kentucky with a McClain. A man by the name of Rueben Staton appeared as bondsman in some of the children's marriage info. According to my grandfather she may have been full blooded Cherokee Indian. Hannah had two daughters at the time she married Augustine, Catherine b 1803 and Malinda b 1800. They in turn had the following children, Phoebe, James David, Sally,William, John Paul, and Andrew Jackson.
If anyome may have found record of an Augustine McCarty in the Edgefield area please let me know.
