Posted October 27th, 1999 HIGHLANDERS OATH
This is for your history buffs. In May of 1777 was passed by Act of Assembly
in New Bern and Act know as the Act for the Security of the State. It
required the taking of the Highlanders Oath. This is listed in the
Cumberland County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions.
My question is who was required to take this Oath. People of Scottish
Descent only or everyone in NC? If possible I need a reference.
CUMBERLAND COUNTY COURT OF PLEAS AND QUARTER SESSIONS
*Oath prescribed by Act of Assembly passed at Newbern, May 10th 1777,
entitled an Act for the Security of the State.
*The Highlander's Oath: I, do swear and as I shall answer to God at the
great day of Judgment, I have not, nor shall have in my possession any
gun, pistol or arm whatsoever, and never use tartan plaid of any other
part of the Highland garb; and if I do so may I be cursed in my
undertakings, family and property; may I never see my wife and children,
father, mother, or relation; may I be killed in battle as a coward and
lie without Christian burial, in a strange land, far from the graves of

I'm seeking information on Archibald McLAURIN and / or Archibald HOLMES who
was a Cape Fear North Carolina resident and a relative of Daniel/Donald and
Christian Munn GRAHAM and Alexander and Mary McCORMICK. According to the
story in the Argyll Colony Plus article, Archibald had invited them to
America (from Scotland) to stay with him. After the family departed the
Dalton (the boat of John Paul Jones) they had a long journey to Cumberland

Posted October 27th, 1999 MASSEY / MITCHELL
Thomas Howard MASSEY (1793-1875) and wife Mary (ELLIOTT) MASSEY
(1797-1878) were buried in the "Old Massey Graveyard" on the site of
what is now the Massey Hill Baptist Church (built ca 1900), Southern
Avenue, in the Massey Hill area of Fayetteville. Several children were
also buried there. Older family members remember the cemetery and were
taken there as children to visit the graves.
William Henry MASSEY and wife Holland (POWERS) MASSEY's graves are the
only ones marked in the churchyard. Susan (MASSEY) MITCHELL, husband
Robert and their children are buried in Cross Creek Cemetery #2. I have
been unable to determine if or when the graves of other members of this
family were moved.
Depending on who's talking, "They were moved," "They're buried under the
church" or "They're buried under the church parking lot." No one at the
church seems to know and no one in the office seems to have time to
search for any records of these graves.
I have physically searched graveyards in the area, as well as the
graveyards listed on Cumberland Co's web site, to no avail. This was,
at one time, a well-known and well-to-do family, but I can find out very
little about them.
There were obviously Masonic connections to my JORDAN family. Robert
Mitchell JORDAN (1875-1944) is buried in Cross Creek Cemetery #3,
Fayetteville, along with his wife, Sarah "Sallie" McDONALD. There are
Masonic emblems on Robert's tombstone. His sister, Harriet "Hattie"
(JORDAN) STOUT died in 1940 at the Masonic Home in Greensboro (Guilford
Co NC) and is buried in Rocky Mount (Edgecombe Co NC).
Robert and Hattie were children of Thomas James JORDAN (1834-1896) and
Ann Elliott (MASSEY) JORDAN (1837-1901). Other siblings were Wiley
Edwards, Alice, Margaret, Sarah Lafayette (my gm), Thomas James,
Charles, Dillon J and Walter Watson. The JORDAN family lived in
Haymount, Fayetteville, Cumberland Co.
Can anyone tell me which Masonic Temple in Fayetteville is the correct
one and to whom would I direct a letter of inquiry?
I also have some blanks to fill in on the above names and would
appreciate hearing from anyone researching this family. I'd be happy to
exchange information on them.
My great grandmother, McDONALD, MARGARET, was born in
Cumberland Co., NC in 1831 or 1832 (most probably 1831).
Her father: McDONALD, Archibald and his wife SMITH, Jeanette
came from Scotland, directly to NC.
I am interested in obtaining a birth certificate for MARGARET
McDONALD. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

My ancestor, Right H. ADAMS (B. 1808, N.C.) sold 200 acres of land on
the east side of the Black River to Amos Johnson in 1834. The land was
bordered by William Johnson, ___? Campbell, and the "head of the flat
branch Murphy's line". He had already moved to Montogomery Alabama at
the time of the sale. The sale was witnessed by John McALISTER and H.
GODWIN. He married Anna Jane JONES (B. 1817, N.C.) I am trying to
determine which Cumberland Co. Adams family he is descended from. He
was a bondsman in a Johnston Co. N.C. marriage in 1832 so he may have
been close to the Johnston Co. line. Any help would be greatly
appreciated, and I would like to exchange information. Margaret.

James, b. 1826; and Nancy, b. 1829. They were in Haywood Co. (now Crockett

By 1860, Neal and Lucinda Jane had settled in Greene Co., AR (northeast
corner of state), and on the 1870 census, it was reported that both of
Neal's parents were foreign born.
I know that Cumberland Co. NC had a large number of Scottish

I know so very little about Barbara other than she was my g-g-g-g grandmother.
Samuel was probably born around 1730 but definitely in Scotland. He died
before 1808 and is buried in Giles Co., Tennessee.
He and Barbara had 6 known children, the last being born October 10,
1769 (my g-g-g grandfather also named Samuel). Barbara was said to have
died at Bean Station, [Cumberland Co?] North Carolina waiting for Samuel to come back
from finding them land in Kentucky. Other than that, the only other
thing I know is that the CAMERON surname is also Scottish and on at
least one ship there were Gordons and Camerons aboard. Sorry but I don't
know the name of the ship right now. It seems it was a slave ship sent
from Scotland. Any help you might be able to render will be greatly appreciated.

Lewis; and Spencer Crane. Heards mentioned were: John, and Charles. There
may have been others.
In the Cumberland Court Minutes, 19 May 1762: Isaac Anderson was

My McNEILL connection is rather vague, and I haven't tried to work
on it. Hoping something will fall from the sky, I guess. My ancestor,
John WALKER of Wilmington, NC, married an Isabel McBRIDE, a widow.
Some think she may have been a McNeill and may have been the Isabel
McNeill mentioned in the will of Neil McNeill who led the 500 Scots
to Cumberland Co. NC after the battle of Culloden. His will, probated
1766 at Fayetteville, NC, mentions a niece, Isabel McNeill. However,
Isabel Walker died around 1760, supposedly,and she would have had names
McBride and Walker by then. So, I'm not sure there's really a
connection. John and Isabel Walker had one daughter, Mary, who was
orphaned at a very early age, 4 or 5 years old, and eventually ended up in
Fayetteville and married quite young to James GEE who became a captain
in the Revolutionary War. My information came from various books and
magazine articles that mention them. If anyone knows anything definite on
Isabel McNeill, please write.
