James Macpherson ~ 1736-1796 ~ One of the most controversial figures in the history of letters. In the 1760s he published works that he claimed were translations from third-century Gaelic poems by Ossian, an ancient bard. These epics played an important role in bringing about the romantic movement in European Literature. One poem, "Fingal," enchanted the great minds of Europe for half a century. Goethe admired it and Napoleon took an illustrated Italian copy with him on all of his campaigns. Among others influenced were Schiller, Coleridge, Scott, Byron, Diderot, Massenet, Schubert and Mendlesohn. Thomas Jefferson was so moved that he attempted to learn Gaelic, and said, "I am not ashamed to own that I think this rude bard of the north the greatest poet ever existed." Ossian became the most popular English-language poet in Europe during the 18th century and, with the exception of Byron, in the 19th century as well. The controversy raged for over a century as to whether Macpherson had really found and translated these poems or simply made them up. Some, particularly in Scotland, believed the poems to be genuine while others, often Englishmen, debunked them. The dispute still continues. Ian Grimble simply calls the poems a hoax. Lord Clark said "it was a kind of fake put together out of scraps of evidence." But whatever one thinks, someone, either Macpherson, Ossian, or some combination, demonstrated a talent sufficient to change world literature.14

James Clerk Maxwell ~ 1831-1879 ~ Scotch physicist born in Edinburgh. In 1871 he became a professor of experimental physics at Cambridge University. His best-known work is his treatise on electricity and magnetism, published in 1873. He developed the electro-magnetic theory of light and his electrical researches were invaluable for the later development of radio. Maxwell's achievements paved the way for radio, television, and electronics. Albert Einstein described Clerk Maxwell's work as "a change in the conception of reality" that was "the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton." Einstein kept a picture of Maxwell on his wall and credited him with "putting him on the road" to his own discoveries. Physicist Richard Feynman says: "From the long view of the history of mankind ~ seen from, say , ten thousand years fro now -- there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics." Maxwell also gave the first demonstration of color photography, taking a picture of a tartan ribbon. In addition, he proved that the rings of Saturn were clouds of dust. He was the first professor of experimental physics at Cambridge University and directly supervised the erection of the famous Cavendish Laboratory there. His Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism has been called by the Encyclopaedia Britannica "one of the most splendid monuments ever raised by the genius" of one man.5,14,18

John McArthur ~ Nov. 27, 1826-1906 ~ Born in Erskine, Renfrewshire, he was descended from the most dominating clan of Scotland from A.D. 300 to 1750. His clan has crowned and uncrowned kings of Scotland for more than a thousand years. In 1849, he arrived in Chicago. McArthur was a strong Highlander, broad-shouldered, and standing more than six feet in height. He soon found work as a mechanic and was involved in the construction of engines, boilers, and general machinery. In 1851, with his bother-in-law, Carlile, they started the firm of Mason & McArthur, builders of heavy machinery. In 1859, their plant located at Canal and Carroll streets was destroyed by fire and the firm was dissolved. In 1856, McArthur became involved with a military organization known as the Chicago Highland Guards. They were composed almost exclusively of Scotsmen. McArthur soon became their captain. Under his direction, the Guard became one of the best disciplined and most picturesque of any in the west. "They wore tall bear skin caps, the kilt of the clan McArthur, and with their bare legs and brawny shoulders, they were the pride of the city and the state." When the call for troops came in 1861, McArthur delivered almost the entire group to military service. General McArthur was elected a colonel and started a most brilliant military career. They were immediately called to Springfield and became the nucleus around the Twelfth Illinois Infantry. They were mustered into the United States Army on May 3, 1861. McArthur was involved in many battles including: the capture of Fort Donaldson, Shiloh, Corinth, Luka, Vicksburg, Nashville, Marietta, and Atlanta. At Shiloh he was so badly wounded that he had to be carried from the field of battle. "He never disappointed his superiors in command or took his men off the field in confusion. During the war he was the idol of the people of Chicago, who watched with eager interest the doings of McArthur and his men. From 1861 to 1865, there was hardly an issue of a Chicago paper that did not contain something of his military achievements." Upon his return to Chicago after the war he was counted among its foremost citizens. He may have been the most prominent of the Civil War Commanders. He returned home and served as postmaster of Chicago and, when he died, his passing was considered a public bereavement. He was buried at Rosehill May 5, 1906. In 1848, he had married Miss Christina Cuthbertson at the Parish of Erskine, Scotland and to the union were born eight children. John McArthur was an active member of the Illinois Saint Andrew Society and served three terms as president, 1869, 1870 and 1871. He is buried in lot 155, Section 90, in Rosehill Cemetery.

Atkinson, Surveyor-General of New Mexico, hired McBroom as Deputy Surveyor in the spring of 1876. so Henry moved to New Mexico. He had no money but within 6 to 8 years he established enough capital to purchase land and establish a rather large ranch in the Cuniva valley, just Northeast of Fort Sumner. The area ranchers would supply the nearby Fort Sumner. McBroom borrowed a great deal of additional money to stock his ranch and in 1890 ended up losing the ranch to foreclosure. McBroom was well liked by his neighbors, but known to have a temper and fierce nature. Henry fought the foreclosure, but it was enventually settled by a US Supreme Court ruling. He did recover and ended up as a sucessful rancher in Colorado Springs area.

Daniel Craig McCallum ~ 1815-1878 ~ During the war, the military railroads were run by Daniel Craig McCallum. It was one of the most critical aspects since the movement of men and materials was so vital to a successful campaign. McCallum was born in Johnston, Renfrewshire, Scotland, on January 21, 1815. His parents came to the United States when he was young and settled in Rochester, New York. He studied architecture, engineering, and worked for the railroads.

When the Civil War began he headed his own bridge company, specializing in railroad bridges. He was commissioned a colonel and put in charge of the nation's railroads and later rose to the rank of major-general. One of the best sources of information of the railroads during the war are the records and reports left by McCallum. He also designed buildings and wrote poetry.

John McCleary ~ 1771-1849 ~ b. Glasgow/died Dalton, Ohio. When nearly 21, he was overpowered in London by the press-gang and forced into the British Navy. The man-of-war on which he was serving set sail for Quebec. For some reason a younger officer struck McCleary with his sword and he knocked the officer down. He was courtmartialed and sentence to be shot, but was pardoned by the commander. On reaching Quebec, he decided to make his escape. By some means he crossed to the south shore of the St. Lawrence, probably by rowboat or swimming the three-mile river. He was unarmed save for a club he had secured which would give him some protection against possible pursuers and the dangerous animals which roamed the dense forests. Being a strong man, he traveled 50 miles at his highest speed before he halted for food or rest. On a southerly course, he made his way through mountainous country of unbroken forests for 350 miles. By chance he stopped at a cabin of Thomas Cook's, a pioneer in Cambridge, Washington Co., NY. This was approximately 1793. He was taken into the Cook home and cared for until his strength was restored. He remained in Cambridge and went to work; but, because he feared reprisals against his parents and possible capture, he never again heard from his family. To make his obscurity more impenetrable, he changed his name from McCleary to McCleery, which spelling has been retained. He married Margaret Cook in 1797, daughter of Thomas Cook. About 1825 he and his family moved to Canada, near Niagara Falls. They did not take with them their church certificates, intending to send for them after they settled. Then left Canada and moved to the area of Dalton, Ohio in 1841. Here he died. In 1851, with the mother, brothers and sisters, except John and family and Mrs. Elizabeth Orr, they moved to Somonauk, IL township. The others followed in 1852.4

George Brinton McClellan ~ 1826-1885 ~ He was a captain assigned to the U. S. Army working on the Chicago harbor. It was he, along with General J. A. McDougal, who issued the first call for Scottish men living in Chicago to celebrate the birthday of Saint Andrew. The date was November 30, 1845, and the meeting place was the Lake House Hotel where he resided. He was then Captain McClellan in charge of the harbor works. He was the most controversial and least understood general of the civil war. Political enmity was largely his undoing. He was a keen strategist and organizer, which carried him to the highest Union rank. However, he was a Democrat who disagreed with the policies of President Lincoln and his Republican cabinet, and he quickly fell from favor. Others say he wasn't fit to command. He was a graduate of West Point at 19 and spoke several languages fluently. McClellan was born December 3, 1826 in Philadelphia, the son of a physician. The family was from Galloway in southwest Scotland. They moved to Ulster before James McClellan emigrated to New England in the early 1700s. George was cited for distinguished service in the Mexican War and returned to West Point to teach from 1848 to 1851. He also served as a Crimean War observer. After the federal defeat at Bull Run in 1861, he was made top commander of the Union armies at the age of 34. In the spring of 1862 he invaded Virginia, and advanced on Richmond, but was defeated in a series of battles in July and compelled to retreat. After the defeat of General Pope in the Second Battle of Bull Run, 1862, he quickly whipped the defeated army into shape but disagreed with Lincoln as to whether or not the men were ready to take the offensive. He was relieved of his command, but stayed on to defeat General Lee at Antietam. His failure to pursue Lee closely led to his replacement by Burnside. McClellan was nominated by the Democrats to oppose Lincoln in 1864. On election day he sailed for Europe and stayed there for four years. On his return in 1877, he was elected governor of New Jersey and served as president of the Great Western Railroad. His later years were spent traveling and writing. He died suddenly at Orange, New Jersey, on October 29, 1885.5,14,17

Cyrus Hall McCormick ~ 1809-84 ~ inventor of the reaping machine, was descended from James McCormick, one of the signers of the address of the city and garrison of Londonderry presented to William III. after the siege in 1689. Of his invention the French Academy of Sciences declared that by its means he had "done more for the cause of agriculture than any other living man."17

Cyrus Hall McCormick ~ 1809-1884 ~ He was descended from James mcCormick, one of the signers of the address of the city and garrison of Londonerry presented to Wiliam III, after the siege of 1689.(17) Parents, Robert McCormick and Mary Ann Hall (also of Scotch-Irish descent). His ancestors were driven out of Armagh, Ireland by the massacre of 1641. There were eight children of which Cyrus Hall was the eldest. When McCormick was born 90% of the American population was involved in food production. By 1900, it would be less than 50%. Today, it is less than 3%. The McCormicks came to America from Ulster, and like so many others migrated to American in the early 18th century. His grandfather living in Pennsylvania had fought in the American Revolution. His father moved to Virginia and bought 1800 acres of land. The father with an inventive mind had struggled to build a reaper, but failed. Cyrus Hall McCormick, a Presbyterian of Ulster-Scot ancestry, was living on his father's farm in Virginia and struggled to make his own inventions acceptable to the farmers. He had invented an iron plow, however, the farmers would not use it because they believed the iron would poison the soil. He had also invented a reaper, different from the one his father had made, but the farmers of Virginia would not use it. He was the 47th person to try to invent the reaper and the 23rd to receive a patent. Heavily investing in the manufacture of Iron in 1835, he was bankrupt by 1839 when the price of iron fell. He turned his farm over to his creditors but he still had his reaper, although eight years had passed and it was not yet marketable. In 1839 he gave a public exhibition on the farm of Joshua Smith near Staunton. There were no buyers. It was not until the following year that he made a sale of one reaper for $50.00. Several weeks later two more were sold. By 1841 he had a wholly satisfactory reaper and fixed his price at $100.00. In 1842, he received orders for seven reapers all from the area of Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa. He took the seven to Richmond, and by boat sent them to New Orleans. Here they were transferred to a steamer that brought them to Cincinnati. They by smaller boats and wagons they were sent to the various areas. Four arrived too late for harvest. Twenty-nine reapers sold in 1843 and fifty in 1844. Cyrus McCormick now believed that his future lay in the west and so he came to visit. In Illinois, he saw families cutting wheat by moonlight before it became overripe and shattered or hogs and cattle turned into the fields for lack of laborers. He had already looked at Cleveland, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, and St. Louis. He chose Chicago, the smallest, most impoverished, and muddiest, of all the cities he visited. The railroads had not arrived, but boats could bring steel from England, and pig iron from Scotland. McCormick knew it would be only a matter of time before the railroads would make their way from the East and into the prairies west of Chicago. Without capital or credit, he sought the cooperation of William B. Ogden, a leading citizen, who agreed to invest $25,000 in a half interest in a reaper factory. By 1849, however, the partnership was dissolved, Mr. McCormick paying Mr. Ogden the $25,000 he had invested and $25,000 additional for profits and interest. By 1848, he had built his factory along the north side of the river very near to the Lake House and became the first of the prominent manufacturers of this city. The first year of factory operations, they built and sold 700 reapers. He sold each reaper at a set price of $120.00, $30 dollars down and $90 more in six months if the farmer could make it. If not, he was given more time to repay. Never did McCormick sue a farmer for lack of payment. His huge factory would soon produce a reaper every minute of the day. In 1859, he offered $100,000 to establish a Presbyterian Theological Seminary. "The life of Mr. McCormick is a history of industry, genius, vision, public spirit, devotion, and generosity ~ an example which his widow and children have fully maintained in their continued and large contributions to educational, religious, and philanthropic objects." In 1855, a poor tenant farmer was evicted from this land in Ayrshire, Scotland. He came to American with his family and they found themselves on the banks of the Mississippi river. Since there were no railroads, or stage-coaches, the entire family walked to a point not far from the present location of Des Moines, Iowa. There they claimed a quarter section of land and planted wheat. The first year they cut the wheat with the cradle and the scythe. They next year, on credit, they purchased a McCormick Reaper. As they prospered, the Father returned to Ayrshire and paid his creditors. The oldest son was 17 when the family arrived in America. He later attended Grinnel College, taught school, became the first Speaker of the Iowa Legislature. Later he became a professor of agriculture at Iowa State University, and finally the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. He would serve in that office for 17 years, longer than anyone else, leaving a remarkable record of organization and innovation. "We had a McCormick Reaper in 1856" says James Wilson; "and at that time there was no railroad within seventy-five miles of our Iowa farm. The Reaper worked a great revolution, enabling one man to do the work that many men had been doing, and do it better. By means of it the West became a thickly settled country, able to feed the nation and to spare bread and meat for the outside world." Married 1858 Nettie Fowler of NY. Children: Cyrus Hall McCormick, Jr., President of International Harvester Co., Harold, its treasurer and Stanley, its comptroller. Robert, died in infancy. Mary Virginia (b. 1866), Anita (1866-1892 ~ Married Emmonds Blain, and left a son Emmons Blain born 1890)and Alice (1870-71). Figure, if you can, what America would be today without her perfected agricultural machinery; shut down all of the workshops, factories and salesrooms where the products directly concerned with reaper and binder manufacture are made and handled, the mills and the elevators that are in operation because the great wheat harvests of the world can be gathered ~ estimate all this and you will know what Cyrus Hall McCormick's contribution to the world and advancing civilization has been. When he lay in state in his Chicago home, there was a reaper, modeled in white flowers at his feet; and upon his breast a sheaf of the rip, yellow wheat, surrounded by a crown of lilies.

In December, 1809, Jane (Jenny) Todd Crawford (also Scottish) in Motley's Glen was expected to give birth to twins but could not deliver. She had been married by the Rev. Samuel Houston, a close relative of the Texas hero. McDowell traveled the 60 miles and arrived on horseback to examine Mrs. Crawford. He discovered that she was carrying a large ovarian tumor instead of twins and persuaded her to go to Danville, a two-day ride on horseback. Medical opinion was that if the abdomen was opened, death would occur. Rumor spread quickly and he was accused of being in league with the devil from the pulpit. On Christmas Day, with a lynch mob outside and only the most crude of anesthetics, he removed up to 20 lbs. of gelatinous material. The patient was able to return to her family in a few weeks and lived into her 80's. This Frontiersman physician had become the world's first surgeon to demonstrate the feasibility of elective abdominal surgery. Ironically, he died of appendicitis. A monument stands in the public square in Danville, Ky, honoring Dr. McDowell.

His regiment was known as the Second Scotch and they were also called the Highlanders. At the end of the War, John McEwan's health was broken and so he returned to his homeland. In Scotland he married and three children were born to him and his wife. Times were very difficult for the family and John was never able to properly support his wife and children. When he died, it was necessary for the family to bury him in a pauper's grave. In 1890, his widow appealed to the Honorable Wallace Bruce for help in getting her pension from the U.S. government. At the time, Wallace Bruce was serving as the U.S. Cousul in Edinburg. He was shocked to discover that a veteran of the War was buried in a potters field. He was so distraught that he made a personal decision to resolve the situation. He felt that there should be a better place for the burial of Scottish-American soldiers in Edinburgh. He returned to the United States and began a campaign to raise money for a monument to Abraham Lincoln and burial place for some of the veterans of the War. McEwan was buried beneath the Lincoln Statue in Edinburgh.(EWR Files)

Donated land in Riverside, Illinois, to the Illinois saint Andrew Society. He was a wealthy physician who was also prominent in the manufacture of patent medicine. His home, built in 1890, and looking every bit like a Scottish castle, still stands at 4868 Drexel Avenue. The gift of land was incentive enough to act and the president was instructed to select a committee to raise one hundred thousand dollars for the erection and endowment of an Old Peoples' Home. The committee included James B. Forgan, John G. Keith, Daniel Ross Cameron, David R. Forgan, Daniel Campbell, Alexander Robertson and John Crerar, all names noted in Chicago history. Within a year funds were available. The plans had been drawn by William Mundie, a Scottish architect prominent in Chicago. A ground breaking ceremony was held on March 23, 1910, and the cornerstone was laid on May 21. The first Home Committee was elected on April 4 and, in October, the residents were moved from Bryant Avenue. The Home was formally dedicated on November 5, 1910. The entire Scottish community had contributed to the building of the Home and it "became an object of special pride to local Scots." Eight of the eleven original residents were native ~ born Scots. A number of these residents are buried in Rosehill Cemetery, Chicago, IL.

He was sent east to receive an education in the classics, then became a chief, symbolic leader of more than 45,000 Creeks, Chickasaws, Choctaws and Seminoles in the Southeast. Pensicola, Florida was the center of Indian trade. The chief sought and received British protection, was appointed an honorary British colonel and signed a treaty with the Spanish. Washington persuaded him to come to New York where he stayed with Henry Knox and a treaty was formally hammered out in 1790. His name translated from Creek was 'Big Mac'. Since that time the chiefs of the Creek nation have been McIntoshes and are descended from another Scottish immigrant, who married a Creek princess.1,14

He was a brother-in-law of James Michie and lived in Bridgeport. A list of the Scottish losses during the Great Fire, shows on John McGlashan who lost "office furniture, on Washington Street." "I recollect also McGlashan's Woods on the South Branch, and I am reminded of the pleasant manner in which a number of us boys were treated there by Mrs. John McGlashan one summer. It was our custom after our Saturday morning school session to spend the afternoon in the grove. Once, upon going to the house for a drink, Mrs. McGlashan gave us a regular prize winner of a melon and said, 'I have noticed you boys out here frequently and you seem to have a happy time, without trespassing, so as long as the melons last, come to the house and I will be pleased to furnish you with all you can eat.' She was our sylvan diety ever after. This was the young lady, who, as Miss Jessie Guthrie (1812-1895), a bonnie Scotch lassie, direct from the braes of Scotia, landed with the schooner Julia Palmer, with Joseph Gray, 7/16/1836. She lived to the good old age of 86, passing away December 24, 1898." John McGlashen selected the beautiful grove on the east side of the South Branch about 25th street.8

He was one of the most resolute of Presidents in dealing with the nation and its problems. His administration came at a critical time, when America was emerging at the turn of the century as a world leader. How well he did his job is evidenced in his re-election by a resounding popular majority of 850,000 votes. McKinley was born at Niles, Ohio, January 29, 1843, of Ulster-Scots ancestry on his father's side. Both of his grandfathers fought in the American Revolution.

Hayes, repeatedly distinguishing himself in action. He was discharged as a colonel. He was elected to Congress in 1876 and remained for six consecutive terms. He was later Governor of Ohio and his re-election enhanced his prestige and he was elected President in 1896.

He was re ~ elected in 1900. During the McKinley administration, the American people were outraged by the cruel treatment of Cubans and other Latins by their Spanish overlords. When the USS Maine blew up in Havana harbor during a visit, pro-war Americans screamed foul play and demanded action. McKinley remained calm and counseled peace, but war ensued. In the turmoil that followed Spain's defeat, he took control of the Spanish colonies. In 1898, the Hawaiian Islands were annexed and the territory making up the 50 U.S. states as he know it today was geographically completed.

He was born at Dalhnier, Scotland near Ballanter. First Manager of the Illinois Saint Andrew Society 11/30/1845, of Summit, and future president of the Illinois St. Andrew Societyin 1847. It appears that in 1848, he may have moved to Lyons, Illinois. This would not have been considered unusual since many people believed that Lyons would be a large city due to its location on the Des Plaines river. The township of Lyons was organized in 1850 and James Michie was elected the Town Clerk. He was re-elected in 1851 and is also a Justice of the Peace. The first road in Lyons township was a private road owned by James Michie, Eden Eatron, and Samuel Vail. It began at the Lockport and Chicago road on the section line of 15 and 16, running due south for about sixteen hundred feet. In 1854, James Michie was elected Supervisor and also was "the overseer of the poor." At the time of his death in 1876, he was 68 years old. James Michie was married to Margaret Guthrie (1810-1873) and they apparently had five children. Daughter of James Guthrie and Jane Finbaser, she was born at Mens of Mayne, near Huntly, Scotland. She died at age 63. The Daily Democrat on April 3, 1848, notes that "Mary, twin daughter of James & Margaret Michie, died at the age of five months." The remaining twin was named Margaret and she died at the age of 12. Jane (1839-1894) married Dr. George Marshall Fox of LaGrange, IL. A son, John C. Michie, was born in 1844 and in 1868 married one Mary S. Curtis. John Michie died in 1919. (History of Cook County Illinois, A.T. Andreas, pub. 1884.)

Mill was educated entirely by his demanding father. By age eight he had read Plato, Aesop, Herodotus and other Greek classics in the original and was beginning Latin, Euclid, and algebra.

He was wounded in the Battle of Trenton and later took up the study of law under Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was to greatly influence his career. "Monroe is probably best known for his declaration of the Monroe Doctrine which profoundly influenced American foreign policy. He is also known as the father of the U. S. Constitution." Under President Jefferson he was sent to France as a special minister. There, he exceeded his authority and signed an agreement that committed the U.S. to purchase the Louisiana territory for three million dollars. He was minister to Great Britain 1803 ~ 1808. He was again elected governor in 1811 and in the same year appointed Secretary of War. James Monroe served two terms as President, 1816 and 1820.
