I am looking for any hints on whether my MCBRIDE ancestors immigrated into Rowan, North Carolina, from Pennsylvania over the Great Wagon Road or settled in the Cape Fear Valley. I have found a probate record of my William MCBRIDE 1757-1822 in Iredell Court Records. His wife’s name is Margaret Crawford. Any help or information on how to determine which way they migrated would be greatly appreciative.
I am looking for information on John McBride born 04 Nov 1789 maybe in Ireland. He married Sarah (Last name unknown). She was born 19 Mar 1792. John and Sarah were married before 1812, and had at least sixteen children.
John's father name was Robert McBride and his mother's first name was Katherine. Robert was born in IrelAND died in 1974 in Fairfield Dist., South Carolina, USA.
I am descendant of John and Sarah son Isaac Nolan McBride born 14 Mar 1817 in South Carolina, USA. If anyone has any information on this family please let me know. Thanks
