To the McLawhorn researchers in the Group,
I have the following early beginnings of the McLawhorn family. Much of my information came through Leah McGlohon�s books.
Read "Scots to Colonial North Carolina Before 1775"
The earliest McLawhorn that I have is Jeremiah McGlohon (b: about 1710 - d: before Apr 1759 in Loosing Swamp, Bertie County, North Carolina). His father may have been from Ulster, Ireland. It is possible, that Jeremiah was born in the colonies, but more likely that he immigrated with the first Scotch-Irish that came after 1718.
Jeremiah (b: about 1710) may be the father of Edmund and John McGlohon (b: about 1741 - d: about 1800). John McGlohon (b: About 1741) may be the father of both George McGlohon (wife: Mary Harrington) and Jeremiah McGlohon (b: 1765; wife: Fanny).
Children of Jeremiah McGlohon (b: 1765) and his wife Fanny:
Jonathan McGlawhorn (d: 1887) wed Mary Raspberry before 1821
Sarah McGlawhorn wed Robert A Witherington, Sr.*
Elizabeth Rebecca Ann 'Rebecca' McGlowhorn (d: Mar 1870) wed _____Spier_Worthington,_Sr. (1798 - 1860)*
Priscilla McGlohon wed Levin Turnage.
* Robert and Spier are brothers; sons of Ambrose 'Amber' Witherington (26 Feb 1768 - 1824) and Susanna 'Susan' Mills.
