bullet  General Notes:

Lachlan McGillivray
was born in Scotland (of the Clan MacGillivray Chiefs Lineage, part of the Clan Chattan Confederation of the Scottish Highland) and migrated to the Colonies as a young man. He lived in Augusta, Georgia, where he became a wealthy fur trader who also owned several large plantations and was a delegate in the colonial assembly. He was a Loyalist to the British.

Lachlan was the father of Alexander McGillivray and the great-uncle of William (Chief White Warrior) McIntosh and William (Chief Red Eagle) Weatherford, three of the most powerful and historically important Native American chiefs among the Creek of the Southeast.

Lachlan's wife Sehoy II Marchand was the daughter of Captain Jean Baptiste Louis DeCourtel Marchand, French commander of Fort Toulouse in Alabama; and Sehoy I, Indian princess of the prestigious Wind Clan (Hutalgalgi), the highest ranking tribe of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.

The revolutionary governments of Georgia and South Carolina eventually confiscated Lachlan's property and he returned to Scotland where he died in 1799.
