"Upper Duncan" McLaurin
Mary and Duncan were 2nd cousins.
It was no lack of prosperity nor desire to better their fortunes that led the McLaurins to come to
America, for they carried on a large fern in one of the most fertile and picturesque parts of
Scotland. Their home was a large white house in the beautiful glen near loch Etive, surrounded by
majestic mountains, and situated upon a stream so clear, that the salmon could be seen lying
twenty-four feet below. The British government had, since the last uprising of the clans In 1745,
become very strict in requiring the young highlanders to serve in the army. Mary McLaurin had had
ten brothers in the battle of Culloden, several of whom were slain, so she naturally felt a horror of
war and bloodshed. When, therefore, the oldest of these sons reached the age of eighteen years,
they determined to leave home and country rather than part with any of their children.

Notes for Neill McLaurin:
BIOGRAPHY: Neill Mclaurin, the fourth son of Duncan and Mary Mclaurin,and the grandfather of
the writer, was said not to have been so handsome as most of his brothers, but he had a fine
intellectual face, and he was a man of scholarly attainments, who used often to sit up most of the
night reading and studying. To the study of French he was especially devoted. Still, bookworm
though he was he succeeded well in the business world and because of his ability and
conscientiousness. For many years he was a member of the prosperous mercantile firm of McCall
and McLaurin, doing business mostly wholesale in Wilmington, during the closing years of the 18th
and earlier years of the 19th centuries. By the failure of a large firm, Kershaw and Ochiltree, of
Fayetteville, and the loss of a large sum by going security for a friend, the business was greatly
weakened about the year 1832, but was probably continued some time longer. After that he was
deputy collector of the port until failing health compelled him to resign. Neill Mclaurin was
exceedingly absentminded and many amusing antedotes are told of him regarding this trait. He
had been visiting his brother John one summer at the country home of the family about ten miles
from Fayetteville. When the time came for his return home, he was left to spend the night at the
town house under the care of Billy, a faithful manservant, in order to catch the boat down the Cape
Fear River, which started very early in the morning. At Nine o'clock, when his brother drove up and
opened the door, there he sat absorbed in a book. Billy, seeing his absorption had been too polite
to Interrupt him. He had sat up and nodded all night, supplying fresh candles. Never was a man
more beloved by his friends, and he had no enemies. In the year 1831, when he was fifty-three
years old, he revisited the highlands.
1840 - Lived in New Hanover Co, NC then moved to Wilmington, NC.
Neill and his children were mentioned in his father's will.

MA. She died on 01 Mar 1900 in Wilmington, New Hanover Co., NC.
iii. MARY  MCLAURIN  was born on 13 Feb 1825 in Laurinburg (?), NC. She died on 30
