This is the info I have on our first American Rorie ancestor: John MacRorie, born in Scotland in 1660-died (unknown date) in Essex County, Virginia. His son was William Rorie (Mac dropped because of discrimination against Scots in the colonies), 1680-1708, Essex County, Virginia, married Hannah, widow of John Spicer or Spires. His son, John Rorie, plantation farmer, born in 1705 in Essex County, Virginia, died July 7, 1782, in North Carolina, married to a woman named Hannah in 1727. John Rorie was a private in the Anson County, North Carolina, militia, #38 on muster roll in Capt. Samuel Coburn's Co., 1750's (French and Indian War). Then the family tree goes: William Rorie2 m Judah Butler, James Rorie m Suesana Buxton, Absalom Rorie m Sarah Jane Meador, Hezekiah Rorie m Louisa Ticer, Newt Rorie m Sarah Beaver, Wayne Rorie m Linie Morrison, Eulis Rorie m Cleo Graddy, to me, Kenneth Rorie m Linda England.
Some sources say that John MacRorie was from the Scottish highlands (where kilts were worn) and that the other Rorie family that came to America about the same time was from the lowlands.
