About John Golden McDonald

  • INDEX[2975] All data from Gaddie.

Vann's, Ross' & McDonalds lived in the Lauren's Co. area, and then moved to what became North Georgia in Rossville and Springplace until 1838. In 1838 John McDonald is at Ft. Loudoun, Tennessee. John McDonald who is mentioned in Isaac Sharps will is listed in the book"Scots in the Carolinas 1680-1830". I found John McDonald on pg.. 143. It says:"McDONALD JOHN, Born in Inverness during 1747. Emigrated from Scotland to America in 1766. Merchant in Charleston, SC. Married Annie Shorey."

  • JOHN TI-TA-S-GI-S-GI MCDONALD:

John served in the Revolutionary War as an ensign in the British ranks and as commissary agent for the British troops. In this capacity he proved effective at leading and supplying Indians, qualities that he would cultivate in subsequent merchandising efforts. After the war he settled on the Chickamauga River, carrying on a private trade through Pensacola among the Cherokees with goods bought at Charleston in defiance of Indian trading laws established by the fledgling United States.

Old Frontiers, John P Brown, pp 122-123; "By the Treaty of Paris, Feb 10, 1763, all of North America east of the Mississippi came into the posession of England... "Captain John Stuart was appointed His Majesty's Indian Agent for the Southern District... "His [Stuart's] new appointment required that he should leave his friends the Cherokees. He therefore sent as his deputies to that nation, Alexander Cameron and John McDonald. "John McDonald located at Chickamauga. He married Anna, daughter of the interpreter William Shorey who had died while on the way to England. Their daughter, Mollie McDonald, became the mother of Chief John Ross.
