Possible Descendants of John McAfee, Sr.

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN1 MCAFEE, SR. was born 1645 in Scotland, and died Abt. 1738 in County Armagh, Ireland. He married ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY Abt. 1670 in near Glasgow Scotland, daughter of MALCOM MONTGOMERY. She was born 1639 in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Notes for JOHN MCAFEE, SR.:

Historical

The genealogy of the McAfee family has been traced back to John McAfee, the Patriarch, who was born and reared in Scotland in the days of Cornwell. Then the persecutions of James II were directed toward him on account of his religious convictions. He came under the ban, but the pride of his noble line rose in him triumphant, and with his wife( Elizabeth Montgomery,) , and his son, John, he fled to Ireland in 1672. Similar migrations happened from 1611-1700, noting the familiar saying "Scotch Irish". The persecutions of James II drove nearly all the Covenanted from Scotland into the north of Ireland. With the McAFEE'S went the CAMPBELL, MONTGOMERY, McMICHAEL, Mc COUN, and the ADAMS families, all related through marriage. They settled in Armagh County, in Ulster, near Callan and the Ulster canal, 70 miles northwest of Dublin. He fought in the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland in 1690 alongside his son John McAfee JR. who at that time was only a lad of 17. Also fighting under the banner of William, Prince of Orange were John McAfee SR'S seven brothers.

7. JAMES3 MCAFEE, SR (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born October 17, 1707 in County Armagh, Ireland, and died 1785 in Botecourt Co., Virginia. He married JANE MCMICHAEL 1735 in County Armagh, Ireland, daughter of MALCOM MCMICHAEL. She was born 1710 in County Armagh, Ireland, and died Abt. 1783 in Harrodsburg, Mercer County Kentucky.

Notes for JAMES MCAFEE, SR:

James McAFEE was born October 17, 1707, in Armagh county Ireland, at the family homestead. In 1735 he married Jane McMichael, " the flower of Erin", even though the parent stock was transplanted from Scottish soil. We have meager information that in 1739 he proposed to his family to emigrate to America. Everything they had was conveyed into gold for investment in the new country. They embarked at Belfast. The family group consisted of Mrs. John McAfee, (mother of James, then 84 years old), James McAfee, his wife Jane, and there three children, James, John & Malcom. Malcom died and was buried at sea almost within sight of the American shore. A few days later they landed at New Castle on the Delaware River. This occurred June 10, 1739. James McAfee purchased a tract of land situated on what was known then as Octorora Creek, which, rising in the S.E. part of the Susquehanna River near Port Dipisit. Here he made a home for his family, and it was here his other children were born, George, Margaret, Robert, Mary, William, and Samuel. The dates of the marriages and giving of marriage of these children and their descendants down to my father's generation follow. This list is lineal having been obtained from General Robert B. McAfee's private journal, much of which was taken from the journal of his father, Robert McAfee, the pioneer, and the first commodore of the three principal rivers of the West, and therefore it is authentic. General Robert Breckenridge McAfee says that the McAfee's undoubtedly descended from Normandy, and that they were largely mixed with Spanish blood. Tradition bases this claim probably on the grounds that they were large men and women, of commanding port and dignity with black eyes and hair: wherever they may appear, if not marked with these family characteristics it is because the predominant characteristic of some race into which they have married, dominates their own.

James , the second son of James the Patriarch, was one of the pioneers of Kentucky. Went to Kentucky about 1779. He was left in the wilderness of Kentucky, to guard the lands, in the company of James Mc Coun, while his brother Robert and his companions returned to Botecourt County Virginia. James was the one who built a stone house for a fort, which still stands in Mercer County Kentucky; a monument to his memory. It is not a tumble-down wreck, such as old-time landmarks usually are, but a substantial house of masonry, occupied as a dwelling by one of Mercer Counties' staunchest citizens.
