Marion District, So. Carolina. For the information of my children:
As it frequently happens that Europeans immigrate young, before they are able to receive an account of their ancestors, and that, no doubt, when they arrive at the age of maturity, would be highly gratified to learn something of their ancestors, I give my offspring a short but accurate sketch of myself.
I was born in Scotland, parish Kilcarn [sic], on or about the year 1764. My precise age, I do not know. My father's name was John Paul, and his wife was Jean Liddell. They only had two children, my brother and myself. My brother was the oldest. My father and mother both died and left us in the care of an executor, William Bow, who lived in the city of Glasgow. Losing my parents and with but slight acquaintance with few to attract me to my native country, I soon decided to leave the country. Accordingly, about the age of twenty, in company with my brother, we went to Belfast. We landed in Philadelphia after a voyage of two months. After staying in Philadelphia about six months, I went to Carolina where I have continued to live ever since. A few years more I removed to Peedee, at one time called Liberty, but afterward Marion, South Carolina, where on the 25th of April 1793, I was married to Deorah McRee, she being in her eighteenth and I in my twenty-eighth year.
My oldest child, John McRee, was born 15th December 1804. The second child, Andrew Liddell, was born on the 12th of Feb. 1809. My daughter Jane Green was born January 6, 1811. Her first name was in remembrance of my mother. My third son, William Bow, was born on the 23rd of Oct. 1813.
