Margaret Cameron married to John Linn

Hello! After reading the latest posts about DNA conflicting information of the Linn family, I have ventured to make a far-fetched inquiry!

I have been looking for my (g's)grandmother Margaret Cameron. She was born about 1700 in Scotland and I know she once lived in Inverness-shire because son John was born there in about 1721.

Records in the archives of "Clan Cameron Ancestral Archives" in Raleigh NC state that she arrived around 1740 as a widow with son, John. She may have had other children born in Scotland, but only John was brought with her on her arrival. I know that she was widow of Alexander Cameron (I suspect he was killed in Battle of Culloden).

I know that Margaret's destination was Virginia but she may have been brought to North Carolina. I also suspect she may have also been to Maryland (for transfer of land grant papers to son John). John moved to three different places in Pennsylvania and owned land. He was at one time in Maryland. He fought in the Revolution War as did his three sons...

Since Margaret was a widow, I suspect she remarried. She was of good stock and a devout presbyterian (as we all still are!) - her son helped set up the church in Cumberland Co and Lancaster Co as he married one of the reverend's daughters - Jane Witherspoon.

But, I've lost his mom - Margaret Cameron. On a recent search, I spot many similarities to the Linn (Lynn) families - which may explain some of the irregularities this family is having.

I know this is a reach, but maybe an answer for Margaret? Can anybody help with this?
