Notes: Oral tradition states John McPhaul emigrated from the Hebrides in Scotland with his children. A 'John McPhoil' signed a petition for a minister by Presbyterian men of the Cape Fear settlement in 1748. It is also said he brought his millstones with him which he employed in his mill at McPhauls Mill, near the tavern owned by Marrion Johnston Perkins before McPhaul arrived in that area from Cumberland County. Marrion was the widow of Joshua/Josiah Perkins and had at least three children by him: Mary (Leich), Christian (McCrainie) and Jordan Perkins. John McPhaul and Marrion Perkins had no children.
