Notes: Little is known of this Malcolm McNeill, almost as little known as that concerning his father, "Bluff Archie" McNeill. His 1805 estate settlement states he died with 2,295 acres. It has been passed down in the McNeill family line from this couple that Malcolm married a woman named Mary who it was believed had been a McNeill, but her parentage was unknown. Since my research began on James McNeill of Rockfish Creek I've noticed that Malcolm and Mary's first five children—Barbara, Archibald, James, Daniel and Elizabeth—bear remarkable resemblance to the names of what would be a complete list of their grandparents (and two uncles, both named Daniel) if James McNeill of Rockfish and his wife Elizabeth were taken into account as possible grandparents. Scottish naming patterns were still being used in the region at the time Malcolm's children were being born, and it should be noted that the ONLY adult James McNeill in the area at the time who their second son would have been named for was James of Rockfish.
    Barbara McNeill, below, married Alexander Johnson. This Alexander Johnson may have been the Sheriff of that name in Robeson in the early 19th century. Daniel Johnson, Esq. and wife Isabella Brown of Robeson County had a son named Alexander who could have been Barbara's husband. Barbara's sister Margaret died in late 1821 and John B. Johnson, Alexander Johnson's brother who had moved to Cumberland County, co-signed the bond for her estate settlement.
