ancestors of William Martin Gordon

Surnames: Gordon and Mc Gary
I am seeking the ancestors of William Martin Gordon b. Butler County Ohio 8 Mar 1812, d. 2 Mar 1890 Iowa. I believe his parents were Robert Gordon and Elinor Mc Gary. I can find no record of them. I have a book written by WMG's daughter that indicates Robert was a travelling Presbyterian minister who converted to the Baptist denomination because there were no Scotch Presbyterian s where he was teaching school. The book indicates he taught in Warren and Montgomery Counties Ohio. The family was said to have come to America in 1720. Elinor Mc Gary was from Northern Ireland and the sister of U.S. Grant's ancestor. Thanks, Rob
