Was born in Scotland in the year 1778. He married Margaret E. Lamond, by whom he had seven children. They emigrated to America in 1834, and settled in Savannah, where he resided until the following spring, when he purchased a farm of fifty acres three miles southwest of Savannah, on which he resided until he died in 1861, at the ripe old age of eighty-three. His wife survived him but one year. His son James married Mary A. Gault, June 7, 1876, and still owns and occupies the old homestead. Both are faithful members of the Presbyterian Church, and he is one of those sturdy honest Scotchmen, a number of whom reside near Savannah.
