Notes on this Family : In 1736 Neill Dhu McNeill led an expedtition up the Cape Fear River to scout for an area suitable for a colony. Within the McAllister family history written in 1900 by Reverend David S. McAllister, there is a citation of a letter written in 1737 by Hector McAlester of Scotland to his brother Alexander in NC inquiring about the welfare of the son of Laughlin and Margaret Johnstone McNeill named Hector who had remained in NC the year before. "Hector Carver" appears to be that Hector for one good reason: The only two Hector McNeills of the Argyll Colony were "Hector Carver" and "Bluff Hector", the latter having been the known son of Neill Dhu McNeill. Elizabeth McNeill was the only child and heir of Hector McNeill who received a grant for a wedge of 222 acres bisected by Dunfield Creek on the east side of the Cape Fear River on 4 June 1740. Elizabeth's husband James sold half of the wedge three years after their marriage in 1755 and in 1808 Elizabeth sold the other half. When they married Elizabeth was a child bride at the age of 13; however, their first recorded child, Sarah, was not born until Elizabeth was 16. Altogether, Elizabeth bore James twelve children.
