Susannah McMillan married John Blocker Breazeale in SC and her sister Nancy McMillan married Aiken Breazeale. Abner, James, Alexander, Susannah and Nancy McMillan's and the Breazeale brothers along with the Bowies, McElroys, and the children of General Solomon Wood all went to Dallas County Alabama about 1821 and founded McMillans Landing and all got hugh land grants and were among the wealthiest cotton barons in Alabama just prior to the civil war. They all settled in and around the 1st State Capitol of Alabama, Cahaba, and got very wealthy until the civil war and the seige of Selma. I have the copies of the original land grants given to the McMillans in the 1820's...Both John Blocker Breazeale and Susannah died of yellow fever in 1840 and left 4 orphan children...which Abner McMillan adopted. One of those children was my ggrandfather, Absolom Breazeale, who was justice of the peace of the State Capitol until the civil war. Nancy McMillan also died early and Aiken stayed on to raise his children in Bouge Chitte adjacent to the McMillan Plantation. The Alabama Historical Society considers our family as among the founding pioneers of Alabama. They are writing a new history book for the school children and the Cahawba Historical Society wants 500 word essays from any descendant of these Alabama McMillans. Coontact and the director, Linda Derry will be glad to receive your information. I can be reached at for any information.
