The booklet "Legends of Loudoun Valley" by Joseph V. Nichols has a little information on a John McIlhany. He was in the Battle of Culloden in 1746, but shortly after he marriedf Roxanah Stuart and they left Scotland for Virginia. They landed in Yorktown, and eventually bought land near Hillsboro.
He died in 1804, leaving his widow and three sons and three daughters. Two of his sons, James and John were officers in the Revolutionary War. James owned a great deal of land in Loudoun County.
There is a family burying ground surrounded by a stone wall on the Legard Farm (1961). The McIlhanys intermarried with the Vandevanters, Whites, Striblings, Heatons, Kilgours, and others.
There is further information in this chapter on the family.
