Notes on this Family : Donald McNeill is likely a relative of Turquill McNeill of the Argyll Colony. Turquill gave his daughter Marrion Ferguson a slave named Judy in 1789, and the deed to the slave stated Marrion was the wife of James Ferguson of Robeson County. James Ferguson, Sr. bequeathed Judy to his children in his will of 1820. According to Donald's 1792 will in Robeson Co., John Ferguson and James Ferguson are his brothers-in-law. Also in his will, he bequeathed a slave, Willoughby, to his son Daniel McNeill who in 1804 sold him to James Ferguson, Sr. Of the children listed below, it appears Hector, Pegie and Polly never married or at least never had children; if they had had children they would have been named in the quit claim deeds their brothers' children had to sign.
