The Col. James MacQueen mentioned in the title was "of Queensdale" and was born on the Isle of Skye about 1760. He came to America about 1772, and settled in Moore County, NC. According to the genealogical table at the beginning of the book, he was a direct lineal descendant of King Robert the Bruce, and his mother was the half-sister of Flora MacDonald, the Jacobite heroine.
