McDill Family Genealogy Forum
I wonder if your James was possibly a brother to my Nathaniel McDill, b. 1775. Nathaniel was the son of Nathaniel McDill Sr., whose will states that he had seven children, but unfortunately doesn't name them. It appears that at least four of Nathaniel Sr.'s children were born in Ireland before 1772, the rest in SC during the 1770's. Initially, the family lived in what is now Chester County, but by 1830 Nathaniel Jr. was living in Abbeville County.
