McCord Family Groups

The Clan McCord organized known McCord families into groups based on the oldest known McCord ancestor for each group. This systems is a convenient, although a confusing way to identify the McCord families. If you do not know your group, it may take doing some genealogy to determine which one you are in.

If you know the Family Group you are looking for, simply append an # and your group to the end of the URL in your browser with no added spaces. For example if you are looking for GroupID  MM your would simply appemd #MM at the end of the URL in your browser and hit Enter.

After this was originally put together, additional family lines have become known and other groups have found common ancestors. There are also notes that have been added by someone unknown to me. Some remarks are marked "Resolved" while others have simply been added at the end of a paragraph with or without a question mark.

This information was originally on The McCord Family Association web site but it is no longer located there.

Family A

David McCord Son of David McCord of Derry “the Weaver”, believed one of the Sons of William the Immigrant. David McCord, the Weaver, had a plantation in Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania. Indians killed him and his wife on 4 April 1758. The Indians captured four of David the Weaver’s children, David (A), James (Y), Jean and Margaret; they were released a year and a half later. John McCord, son of David, was in the barn feeding the horses; the Indians did not find him. William, another son of David, outran the Indians. Several of the children went with their Uncle John (The Shepard) to Virginia on to North Carolina. David McCord went to Virginia and then settled in Washington Co., Tennessee. He moved to Williamson Co. Tennessee in 1809. Many McCord’s in Rutherford, Marshall, Maury, Williamson and Davidson Co, Tennessee; several descendants moved to Christian Co. KY. Some of them moved on to Bond Co and Washington Co, Illinois. Another group of McCord’s moved to Northern Arkansas, (Lawrence, Independence and Sharpe Counties). Several McCords in Southern Missouri are descendants. There may be a Robert in this group?

Resolve: the children William’s Fort. Currently appears they are combined with David’s Children? Some comments that there being two Williams in Mecklenburg County Virginia possibly explained?

Family B.          Born about 1716 in Ireland. (Sadly, civilian manned fortifications did not survive as well as Government manned forts.) He is also presently considered one the sons of William the Immigrant born about 1680. He is also believed to be brother to David the “Weaver” (who was of Derry. PA and to John, “The Shepherd” who took the Orphaned McCord children to Mecklenburg County, Virginia. He settled in Pennsylvania. William had 3 sons, David, Robert and James. The boys moved to Mecklenburg Co., N.C. David married Ann Shipley and moved to Madison Co. KY; descendants live in Knox Co. Indiana also. William McCord, son of James, settled in Henry Co. Tennessee. His descendants have settled throughout West Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas, Southwestern Kentucky and Southeastern Missouri. Descendants of Robert McCord moved to Bond Co., Il. Research by Jean McCord indicated that some of William’s sons went to Virginia. But the best guess is they went to Johannes McCord’s home on Moorman River in Virginia

*McCord Fort as it was named is described in detail in C. Hal. Sipes, “Forts of Pennsylvania ”written for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania- many reprints. It is also mentioned in his other books; Indians of and Indian Chiefs of Pennsylvania, all recommended reading. Explains it well.

Family C     Are descendants of John McCord of Mecklenburg Co., son of David of Derry, also known as the “Weaver” He was the “Luckey” son who was feeding the horses in the barn and thus escaped notice by the Indians that killed his parents? This makes him the grandson of William the Immigrant and nephew to William of the Fort family “B” and his brother James “J.” Luckey John is brother to David McCord “A” and James McCord Sr. “Y.” Another brother is William who with fleetness of foot outran the Indians. Luckey John settled and stayed in Mecklenburg Co. North Carolina. Some descendants still live there. His son David moved to Greene Co. Tennessee. His son James stayed there. Other children moved to Edgar and Moultrie Co.

Family D.    Family “D” has been going through an intense research and the current belief and findings by this family group and generally agreed to and the “D” family wants it open to challenge as well as contributing information, with our archivist concurrence and as written for Dr. Tom Hill by Kathy Coberly. Assisted by Franklin Otto McCord of Iowa Falls, IA: Family “D” presently starts with Robert [Robin] McCord, listed by the common nickname for Robert, “Robin”. He was an Ulster Scot (Scots-Irish) born in 1710 in Ireland. He immigrated to Lancaster Co., PA in 1743/45 and moved to Mecklenburg, North Carolina. He was a Colonial soldier who died July 18th, 1801. He is buried in Steele Creek Cemetery, Mecklenburg Co., NC. Robin had four sons, two of who are thought to have been lost during the Revolutionary War, Robert McCord Jr. and John. John seems to have lasted longer and there were at least three daughters and one son of whom nothing as yet known. John resided in Mecklenburg N.C.; a son was born in Illinois, but descendants are found in Tennessee. Researchers found of importance that John went by the name “Patrick” during the Revolutionary War. James McCord who served the entire war as a Wagon-Master General is also known to have served George Washington directly. James was one of the sons who was born in Stewartstown, Ireland in 1741 who came here with his father whose descendants end up in Spring Creek, Overton Co., Tennessee and Illinois.

Family E.    John McCord (JOB) of Bedford County, Family E - Family descends from John McCord of Bedford County Virginia (JOB) who was the son of William of the Fort (WOF), the brother of David of Derry “Weaver” and James “Family J”. John McCord was born about 1735 in Pennsylvania. He lived first in Pennsylvania; then Bedford County, Virginia; then Lincoln County, North Carolina, finally moving to Oglethorpe Co. Georgia in the 1790's. John had five sons, William, John, Robert, David and Abraham. William McCords family lived in Autauga and other counties in Alabama. John married in Lincoln County North Carolina and moved into Richmond and Lincoln County Georgia. Robert and David migrated from Georgia and into Maury County Tennessee, ending up in Bond County Illinois. Abraham died in 1799 in Jackson County Georgia, leaving a wife, two daughters and a son.

Family E is so large now it has been divided into 5 branches as follows:

  • E1 (descendants of eldest son William),
  • E2 - (descendants of son Robert),
  • Family E3 descendants of son John),
  • E4 - (descendants of son David) and
  • E5 - (descendants of son Abraham).

This change will in time be reflected in the E family archives; Don McCord of Tennessee Sends.

Family AP   Andrew Nethercot McCord was born 1825 in Scotland or Ireland. He married Mary Ryan. He died 11-14-1900 at St. Killian, Wilmount Co. Minnesota. He had two children, William and John Careful McCord, both born in Scotland. Descendants live in Iowa, Minnesota, Washington, Oregon and California. The Descendants of Andrew Nethercot McCord' born in 1825, in Ireland, according to his death certificate, although the 1890 census record places his birth in Scotland, in 1830. He married Mary Ryan, born in Ireland, about 1847 and it is presumed that she came to the United States with him, but no records of her can be found. It is rumored that our McCord family was originally from County Cork, but this has not been verified. The family moved from Glasgow to Edinburgh in 1859, where they lived until immigrating to the United States. Records vary on the exact date of immigration. The 1900 census record states that Andrew immigrated in 1870 with his son William, but in the declaration of his intention to become a citizen of the United States the date given is August 1882. This record also shows his date of birth to be "on or about 1840", clearly, an error. No explanation for this discrepancy of 15 years. A family member who knew the McCords in 1920 insists that there was only one Andrew McCord in the family. Assuming that these are the correct records, Andrew became a citizen of the United States on April 8, 1891. Andrew applied for and was granted a Homestead on August 17, 1892 for 160 acres; "Southeast quarters of Section 8 in Township 104, North of Range 42, West of the fifth Principal Meridian in Minnesota, containing 160 acres." This was probably in St. Killian, Wilmont Twp, where he died. He signed his application for citizenship in 1885, but his signature is almost illegible. He signed his citizenship papers with an (X). His death record states his parents were born in Ireland.
