Crosssing the moat to Eilean Donan


William Griffin McCray was born in Monongalia County Virginia (now West Virginia) in 1822. His father was our first ancestor to come to America on this branch of our tree. I continue in my search for the ties that bind us with the original MacRae Clan of Kintail who were the "defenders of Eilean Donan Castle".(http://www.eileandonancastle.com/). Any help in finding the missing puzzle pieces will be most welcome. The wife of William Griffin is Hannah Evans born in the same above mentioned county. I have found her fathers name and am awaiting his pictue from the McCray Clan in Canada after 30 yrs of research. A most welcome event that will be shared with all. Can you tell I have been searching though very early manuscripts with old stlye verbage?
