Dugal was from Pollocaig, Moy, Inverness, Scotland. He was married to Elizabeth McIntosh first and they had one daughter Anne. Grace was the second wife and they had 3 children named in Dugal's will, Thomas, William, Francis, all sons.
Comparing dates it would appear that Dugal did not marry until after he knew his first wife had died. As his daughter inherited from her Uncle Lachlan McIntosh, in 1727, her mother would have had to have died before that date. Also, Dugal did not marry Grace until about 1726. Informaiton on Dugal's family in Scotland can be found in the McIntosh Muniments in Scotland
The Sarah McQueen of 1711 is NOT the daughter of Dugal. She does not fit the time frame. Ruth is another matter, but there is still no hard proof that even she is a daughter.
The thoughts on John Brown are many, was he the son of Grace or was he really a son-in-law. The title step-son was not often used then. So son-in-law could have been referring to a step-son.
Dugal was captured at the Battle of Preston and was shipped as an indentured servant to America. He was purchased by William Holland of MD and did seven years.
His land of Cranberry Plains is no where near Annapolis MD, it is near Westminster, in Carroll Co. and on the head waters of the Patapsco River, which feeds the Potomic. And is well north of Frederick, MD. Actually, it is not that far from the PA border. His sons Thomas and William also, owned land near the Patapsco River, Fox's Thicket and McQueen's Choice.
The reason his will is at Annapolis, is because that is where the MD Archives are and all old records are sent there for storage and public use.
I descend from Dugal's son William. I have a great deal on this line. I do not know much about Thomas' family other than Joshua provided a good bit of information in the "Draper Papers" this I believe can be found at or through the LDS library. some larger Library's that have genealogy sections may have them also.
