It all started with my 3rd great grandfather Archibald S. MacMillan.

Borne-June 19, 1793, Castle Sween, Knapdale District, Argyllshire, Scotland.

He has to immigrate to the US in 1803 When he's 10 years of age 

Father name: John Macmillan Jr. and wife Sarah McGilp.

Taken their 5 kids with them and stay in Robeson County, NC.

After growing and having kids of his very own, He has ended up with 7 kids (Not with the same wife, He have 3 of them)

One of them is my second great grandfather is Daniel Hector McMillan, borne 1865 - 10/31/1945 died

To my first great grandfather, his name was Montague Roach McMillan Sr. has borne in the year of 1899 - 1961 

After that my grandfather was borne, Thomas Daniel McMillan, 1930 - 2015

Why... are you telling us this?

Though it does imply your 3rd great grandfather found his way all alone from Scotland to America to start a new life. That's a bold undertaking for a ten year old.

Fuck old dead people, they're not interesting at all amirite. Ideal scenario is not knowing the names of anyone past your grandparents and then never allowing your parents to mention THEIR parents to your kids for sure.

That part is on my mother's side, My 3rd great grandfather (On my father's side) use to have slaves, about 47 of them and when the America civil war came up, they have to let them go free, 

Because the north has won by the skin of their teeth.

The North had more men and a more powerful economy, the South had far more division among the leaders and a shit ton more class division amongst the population, President Jefferson Davis was a terrible leader, the North was far superior in logistics and infrastructure for fighting, Lee led the South on a very aggressive campaign that crippled his forces, the North had superior generals overall despite shining examples among the South and the South were fucked when they got blockaded in and choked to death.

I'm just curious what level of strange and downright unnatural knowledge of lineage that non-Americans apparently feel my brother and I unknowingly passed on to my innocent niece by telling her a couple stories about my grandmother that incidentally contained mention of my great grandparents the other day. Or if anyone has advice on self censoring in the future even though... the best family members are always the dead ones so if nothing else why wouldn't you talk about them as a way to distract the more annoying, living kinds from taking about themselves?

I mean, not speaking English very well has been your most endearing character trait so far. When people are asking you what your first language is that's usually some kind of sign. Even armed with this new knowledge of your ancestry I still can't read most of your posts in the gun thread for instance without mentally applying some kind of hilarious over the top accent.

My brain works in some weird ass ways, Sorry for the bad word. 

When I was little my mother taught me mostly Pig Latin because we were in a bad area at that time,  After I turned five they put me to a school with other kids, to teach me to speak English which I suck at very much so, I didn't have any issues what so ever understanding English, But learning the words the right way of saying them is hard, That and my half Scottish accent makes it kinda hard for other people to understand me and so I have to repeat myself sometimes if they haven't been with me that long to get used to me how I talk.

I like it when some people can't understand what I'm saying half of the time because I can get away with some bad words here and there.

Like if I say County, It kinda sounds like I'm saying Cunt and so on.

I'm more annoyed at you claiming to be Scottish, even though your family came to America literally twenty seven years after it even became a country, so you're pretty much about as American as you can be. To say you're Scottish when your family's been in America that long is a ridiculous joke, you stupid cunt.

Clan MacMillan, My family tale.

Whatever you think buddy, There's something called being Scottish American, because of my father side and mother side both having Scottish in them. 

So, you're right how you feel and think on the matter.

Clan MacMillan, My family tale.

Well no, you didn't say you were Scottish American, you said Scottish. You weren't born in Scotland, your parents weren't born in Scotland and your grand parents weren't born in Scotland. Fuck, by your standards there are no Americans, because they're all just English men or Dutch or wherever their long ago ancestors were, in which case none of us are from there, because we're all originally Africans.

I agree with Will's reaction. What is this thread's point? Maybe if you had made it about everyone's lineage/ancestry, but no, you just posted your own as if evreyone was simply thirsting to know where you come from. You should feel ashamed for making such a pointless thread. 

But it's opened up an opportunity for the members of this site's favorite pastime, mocking and laughing at newbs, so gj I guess.

We celebrated with ebonics and song and dance. Thank you for sharing this and almost bringing the tears to my eyes. My eighty-four year old turtle is going to love this, I just know it.

I know I've talked up Watership Down a lot but in truth it was a survival manual. My childhood was rough and there was many a time only my ability to say eat poop in the rabbit tongue (silflay hraka) was enough to keep me from harm at the hands of bullies and wildlife.

Made it really tough when we had to kill my pet rabbit in order to feed my eighteen aunts and uncles but my grandpa just wouldn't stop having kids with those underage Dominican hookers and for legal reasons he had to adopt the mothers too. Flopsy was a good conversationalist and also my only friend.

The main problem is you’ve given us no fucking story. You didn’t even do much with slave owning ones. You just gave us a list of names and fucking dates. Telling us about your ancestors doesn’t really do much for us unless there’s at least an amusing anecdote about them. 

You have to talk about if your kilt wearing ancestors got into clan wars, if one of them murdering the shit out of the English, if one of them managed to win the prize.

With the slavers you need to talk about how many slaves they raped, if they had a shitload of mulatto mongrels or not. 

You need to tell us if your whore of a great great great grandmother blew so many dudes that they named a street after her in the village she grew up in.

Interesting shit like that.

The Wars of Scottish Independence  1296 – 1328

After Robert, the Bruce killed John the Red Comyn in the Greyfriars Church of Dumfries he was forced to flee and hide in the Scottish Highlands. Bruce was sheltered by Maolmuire, chief of Clan MacMillan.The chief's brother, Gilbert, Baron of Ken stayed with the king and the Clan MacMillan fought at the Battle of Bannockburn. Gilbert is presumed to be the ancestor of the MacMillans of Brockloch, who was a large branch of the clan in Galloway.

An early branch of the Clan MacMillan was to be found at Loch Arkaig in Lochaber. However, tradition states that the family moved from this area on the orders of King Malcolm IV of Scotland and moved to the crown lands of Loch Tay in Perthshire. It was at these lands that Robert the Bruce was sheltered by the Clan MacMillan chief after he stabbed John Comyn the “Red Comyn”, chief of Clan Comyn. The Clan MacMillan again proved its loyalty to Bruce by fighting for him against the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

Chief Malcolm Mor Macmillan received the lands of Knapdale from the Lord of the Isles in 1360. The charter is said to have been inscribed on a rock on the beach at the Point of Knap.

It was reputed to have said:?”Coir MhicMhaolain air a Chnap?Fahad's a bhuaileas tonne ri crag”

Which is translated from Scots Gaelic (gaidhlig) as:?”MacMillan’s right to Knap?As long as this rock withstands the sea”

(This was later destroyed by Campbell of Calder in 1615). As vassals of the Lord of the Isles, the Macmillans were caught up in the aftermath of the forfeiture of the Lordship and lost control of Knap forever. They did, however, manage to keep the adjoining lands of Tireleacham. Even so, they were still harassed by the Campbells who had supplanted them. The Clan MacKintosh and Clan Cameron have long been at feud. The MacMillan supported the Clan Cameron and it is said that there was MacMillan's among the 30 warriors representing the Clan Cameron who fought against 30 warriors from the Clan Mackintosh at a set battle known as the Battle of The North Inch in 1396. It is said that four MacKintoshes survived the battle but were all mortally wounded and one of Cameron’s survived by swimming across a river to escape.

Castle Sween, on the banks of Loch Sween, is a ruined courtyard castle with ranges of buildings and towers. The castle was originally built by the Clan Sweeney but was held by the Clan MacMillan from 1362. The MacMillans were given the lands of Knap and the chiefs were then styled "of Knap". The castle has a tower named The MacMillan Tower that was named after them. To the south is the Kilmory Knap Chapel that houses the MacMillan Cross, an example of surviving Celtic art. The castle later passed to the Clan Campbell and is now in the care of Historic Scotland.

15th century

The Clan MacMillan is also said to have been involved with The Palm Sunday Massacre of 1430 between the Clan MacKintosh and the Clan Cameron. Alexander MacMillan is remembered in Knapdale for the tower he built at Castle Sween which he held for MacDonald the Lord of the Isles in the 1470s.

16th century

Following the demise of the Macdonald’s Lordship of the Isles at the beginning of the sixteenth century, the MacMillan’s lordship of Knapdale was given by the crown to the Clan Campbell, whose tenants the MacMillan's thereafter became; and it was probably at this time that a son of the last MacMhaolain Mor a Chnap who remained loyal to the Lord of the Isles fled Kilchamaig in South Knap to re-establish a branch of the family in Lochaber, who became the Macmillans of Murlagan. The chief of the Clan Cameron who was the clan that had defeated the Chattan Confederation as the Lairds of Lochaber let Murlagan and the neighbouring farms on Loch Arkaigside to the MacMillans for sword-service, and Clann ‘ic ‘illemhaoil Abrach (”the Lochaber M’millans”) were among Lochiel’s most important and loyal followers from the time of the last risings in favour of the forfeited Lords of the Isles in the middle of the sixteenth century

17th century

Macmillan of Knap was considered chief of the clan and when the line became extinct in 1665, the title passed to the Dunmore branch, and from them to the Lagalgarve branch in which it is still vested.

18th century & Jacobite Uprisings

The Clan MacMillan is not noted as being a Jacobite clan, however, tradition states that there were two MacMillan's who carried the Chief of Clan Cameron of Lochiel from where he fell at the Battle of Culloden. However, the Clan MacBain also claim to have carried Lochiel of the battlefield at Culloden. Prince Charles Edward Stewart made his last stand from the Clan MacMillan home in Arkaig.

Clan castles & memorials

The Castle Sween includes a tower which stands as a memorial to the MacMillans. The other MacMillan memorial is a cross which stands in the churchyard at Kilmory. This cross is recognized as one of the finest surviving examples of Celtic art in Scotland and shows a chief of the MacMillan's hunting deer.
