Great Uncle Angus Hector MacLean's book "God and The Devil At Seal Cove" holds many references to our Great Grandmother & Grandfather, his brothers & sisters and many stories of his life growing up there.  On the final page of his book, Angus writes:
'When Father got to the house he had difficulty getting the bundle through the door, and then he spilled everything out onto the floor--shoes, clothing, suits of underwear, and many packages with unknown contents.  "There you are, " he said, "and we have twenty dollars to the good!"  Mother said, "Oh, the honest man!" and then she did something that amazed us.  She caught an end of Father's mustache in each hand and gave him a real kiss in the middle of the mouth.  We were not a kissing family, and even Father was so stratled that he looked like a boy being kissed for the first time,'
On page 103 Angus writes of his mother:
'Mother, too, hasd her moments when worry left her.  There were times when the work got done, and she sat at the spinning-wheel and sang as she kept it humming.  She had a beautiful voice and knew many old Gaelic songs.  The spinning-wheel was her iano and the spinning chode her relaxing time, except when someone droped in for a "ceilidh" (a friendly visit).  The great brown earthenware tespot was always on the back of the stove.  When someone called, she'd put it on to heat, adding more tea and more hot wate.  She served bread and butter, and maybe preserved fruit, with the tea.'
Back on p. 5 Angus wrote of his mother's 'side' as he called it:
'There is still less known on my mother's side, not even, a "pedigree".  All I have has been woven together from overheard snatches of conversations.  Mother was a MacRae, and that would mean something to Highland people.  "The wild MacRaes" of Scotland were just as wild in Cape Breton, by which I mean vital, tough, and full of vinegar.  I read somewhere that the clan MacRae were the only people ever to successfully pull a mutiny in the British army.  My mother's people were like that--independent and unsubdueable.  It was rumored that the MacRaes produced some prominent clergy in the old land, but they seemed to me to be delightfully free from holiness.
Duncan MacRae, my maternal grandfather, settled within ten or twelve miles of Valley Mills, at a spot on the lake known as Big Harbor Islandm which was separated from the mainland by a narrow canal said to have been dug by the Micmac indians with their canoe paddles.  Duncan came from Kintail or Inutyre--there was always a difference of opinion on this p9int among his children in later years.  Duncan married twice and begot a raft of children--ten boys and four girls, or thereabouts.  I never knew how many were of the first marraige, but there must have been a few.  This grandfather also died of an infected wound.  The clearing of the scrub and forests of the wilderness must have been hazardous to men from a virtually treeless land.
The MacRaes were also handsome people.  Two thirds of that mob of girls were beautiful blondes and redheads........But my best love was themother--Grandma to me.  She was a MacDonald and had a parcel of ManDonaold and MacPhail relatives.  She lived until after I left home, and it was when I was saying goodbye to her that I realized how I cherished her.  She was the only grandparent of whom I could remember more than a name.'
This book of Angus Hector MacLean is filled with wonderfully true accounts of the life of our ancestors the MacLeans and Margaret MacRae!

m. William Hilton b. 1803
William Lawson b. 26 Jun 1731 Montrose, Scotland, d. 18 April 1826, Scott, Va.
Biography from RootsWeb:  "William was taken prisoner by the Elglish during the Scottish uprisings.  He was sent to the colonies, arriving on the "Gildart" on 5 August, 1747.....was bound out to a plantation owner......, ran away.  He was nearly 50 years old when he fought at the Battle of King's Mountain in 1780.  In 1781, he was listed as a Sgt. in Damiel Triggs company......." 
Buried in Lawson Confederate Cemetery, Snowflake, Scott Co., Va.  His tombstone reads:  William Lawson Scottish Rebel  Husband of Rebecca......."  Rebecca died 16 Jan 1827.  See book:  "Wm. Lawson A Scottish Rebel" copyright Bill Porter.
William m. Rebecca Jane Banks on 24 May 1768 in Halifax, Va.
Children of William Lawson & Rebecca Jane Banks:
1.  Willian Lawson  (Rev. War Soldier) b. 1769 Halifax, Va.
2.  Travis b. abt 1771 North Carolina
3.  Jeremiah b. abt 1773 N.C.
4.  Robert b. abt 1774 N.C.
5.  Sarah b. abt 1776 N.C.
Thinking about who Rohda's parents were:
Robert Lawson- There were two or three Robert Lawson's in the same areas as our Rebel. One is now believed to have been from the line of Drewry Lawson. The other Robert is not yet known. One of the "Roberts" may have married Anna Goad. One DNA test was completed, indicating no match to our Rebel, nor to the line of Drewry. There is a second DNA in process at this time (Aug 2009) and we are in hopes it will offer a clue to the bloodlines.
William Lawson b. 1769 Halifax, Va., d. 30 June 1852 Scott, Va., m. Nancy Baker b. 1772 Va. They were m. on 4 June 1788 in Montgomery, Va.
William served in the Virginia Continental Army from 1st Jan 1777 to 15 Sept 1778.  Also served the patriot's cause in the Revolutionary War.  He & his father are the only William Lawson's listed as Rev. War veteran's.

Emma Jane Lee Scott
b. 1838 m. Rev. Samuel Wilson Hilton b. 1828 .

See Mary Jane Louallen Page.
John Mitchell writes much of Hannah, Jane & Polly, in his book, Tales of Bull Creek Country.
On page 52 we find the following:
'This information on the Lewallen Fmily has been furnished by Wesley A. Hogan of Elk City, Knsas.  It is included here to correct and supplement versions contained in the first printing of the book.
Wesley Hogan is the grandson of Sarah Emmaline Lewallen who married Andrew Jackson Hogan in Johnson City, Kansas, 28 September 1865.
According to Wesley, Hannah Lewallen's maiden name was Motley and Sarah often spoke of :Uncle John Motley.  He was a slave owner but the Lewallens were firmly opposed to such practice and had no part of it.  Hannah's husband's first name is not recalled, he was referred to as "Granpa Lewallen." The oldest Lewallen boy was "Bill" - he and his father left Missouri to join the California Gold Rush.  According to a neighbor who accompanied them they were both drowned in the Platte River.  The legend is they carried $3,000 in gold which was never found.  A question is why they would have this much money on the way to the gold fields, also how they accumulated it. (Note: This was most likely $ they werer returning home with.)
Hannah died after a runaway wagon accident in which she broke her back.  Sarah then assumed care of the family and the children in the home, particularly Robert and Elizabeth, the youngest, John and Jesse both joined the Union Army, leaving Sarah and Elizabeth to tend the farm.  When Bushwhackers threatened to burn them out they put their belongings in a wagon and moved to Johnson County, Kansas where Keziah and her husband, Jim Oliver lived.  Sarah and her husband visited Missouri and Arkansas in 1906 and at that time Jesse and his family lived at Green Forest.
Sarah Emmaline died 14 March 1919, and is buried in the St. Charles Cemetery, Chautaugua County, Kansas.'
Now, Hannah Lewallen, was my gr gr gr grandmother on my mother's side.  I remember during the 1970's and 1980's when we were searching for Hannah and her daughter Jane Lewallen, being told the story of how they had arrived in Arkansas after leaving the Trail of Tears, and that Hannah's husband left for the Cailfornia Gold Rush and was never heard of again.
As to the question of the $3,000 in gold, this very well could have been $3,000 in cash made from the Gold Rush and that is what ultimately caused his drowning death in the Platte? River!  That makes sense - that he was killed/drowned and his money stolen!
As for the names Motley & Lewallen, it is known that many Native Americans escaped or left the Trail of Tears and took white men's names.  It is also known that these Native Americans hid out as 'whites' and lived among the 'whites' with white man's names.
Also remember that our government insisted that these people be forced to take 'white man's ' given names by the U. S. Military and others!
This is a known fact.
John Mitchell writes on page 27:
'It seems probable that the Lewallen family was part of the forced migration of the Cherokees from Tennessee to the Indian Territory of Oklahoma in the 1830's and 1840's.  On that migration many of the weary travelers left the march and took refuge with Indian families living in Arkansas and Missouri.  According to one legend Jane Lewallen's family was one that remained in Missouri rather than continue the journey to Oklahoma.  This story relates how Jane's father, who was a Cherokee chief, left his family behind while he accompanied the tribe to Indian Territory.'
Remember that Hannah was located on a census in Arkansas then later in Missouri!
John Mitchell continues to write:
'Whatever the true story of Jane Lewallen, the following are facts which can be substantiated by official records.
Jane Lewallen was born in Tennessee in 1835, and in the 1850 census of Taney County, Missouri, she is listed in the house of her mother, Hannah.  Her father is not listed in this census, or in any other that we know of.  He seems to have disappeared about 1848, and even family descendants of today can give no clear account of what happenned to him.  Hannah, while listed as white, could have been at least part Cherokee.  The resemblence of her children and grandchildren to Indian physical features is too much in evidence to dismiss the possibility of Indian ancestry.'
A very special Thanks goes to John Mitchell for including so very much about our gr gr gr grandmother Hannah, our gr gr grandmother Jane and our gr grandmother Polly!
