Have you or anyone else in this thread done DNA? There is a small group of us that are all related and the descendants of Gregor McGregor b. 1752.
Your Gregor McGregor is most likely a grandson via one of his 13 children. I'm a descendant of his son Malcolm McGregor. The thing is that most of the sons that were born to Gregor (1752) had a son named Gregor McGregor and finding which one you belong to is the key!
So far there are 2 matches on Ancestry that descend from the Hatties, Tristalli in this thread who descends from Dewars and there are four of us that descend from 4 brothers. Luc Forand also descends from Malcolm McGregor and his wife Isabella McKinnon through their daughter Jessie. I descend from their daughter Isabella and her daughter Jessie Isabel McKenzie (where I get my name).
I'm currently working on a spreadsheet where there are 11 known descendants that can trace back to the one family of McDonalds that married into the McGregors and Dewars and thus the Hatties, there are 3 that I'm working on their trees right now (as well as growing the descendants of Gregor McGregor and connected families) and there are about another 12 or so that are related, but we don't know how yet.
I started a group on facebook for these descendants and you're more than welcome to join! There are other researchers of this family that actually may even know the son of Gregor (1752) you descend from. The group is "Descendants of McGregor, Dewar, & Hattie".
I'll try to take a look over the weekend when I have some time! My husband is leaving for his job for the next quarter of the year in about a month so it's been really busy here, but with a long weekend I will have a bit of free time!
