Please, Brian, I don't think I ever said they were not married. I have said that she was not the mother of the children: that was Isabell Colquhoun Colquhoun. As I said in the material I posted on The Corner Table, I found no documentation indicating her death before the family left North Carolina, but according to Edwin Crawford Calhoun and Annie Mae Patterson, the wife who was buried in the Patterson Cemetery was Mary McCorquodale Colquhoun.
I do not expect to find that Lauchlin and the others around Bluff were related. My Lauchlin and Duncan Colqhoun were probably related, as they lived side by side some 30 miles or so from the others, named their children after one another, transferred land between themselves (and in one instance agreed to change the division of two land claims before the deeds were issued), witnessed legal documents for one another, and testafied before court to prove up relationships for probates. There is no evidence that they interacted with the ones near Bluff or Longstreet.
