Ephraim McDowell1,2,3

M, ID# 874, (1673 - c 1737)
     Ephraim McDowell was born in 1673 at Co Londonderry, Ireland. He married Margaret Irvine a 1705. Ephraim McDowell immigrated on 4 Sep 1729 to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He died c 1737 at Rockbridge Co, Virginia. He was buried at Rockbridge Co, Virginia.
      The McDowells were natives of Scotland who settled in Ireland in Ulster near Belfast during Cromwell's time. They were all Presbyterian Covenanters. The McDowells were reportedly descended from Someril, Lord of the Isles in 1144 through his son Douglas, who founded the Clan MacDougold, the House of Heremon. Dugall was the head of a warring clan; then the name became MacDougal of Larn. The clan surrendered to Sir Colin Campbell about the middle of the sixteenth century who then took the MacDougal heiress as his wife. The arms were a chevron and three muelets, the supporters--two lions guarding, the crest a stag head, and the motto: vivit post funera virtus.

When McDonnell of Antrim approached the walls of Londonderry, Ephraim McDowell was a defender at the age of sixteen in 1688; this was apparently the Argyle wars in which he participated. Two years later he fought in the battle of the Boyne. His wife Margaret Irvine was his first cousin. Ephraim apparently came to America on 4 Sep 1729 on the ship "George and Ann." He went to Rockbridge Co, VA about 1740 with Benjamin Borden I, who had earned 100,000 acres based on Borden settling 100 families in the county within two years. McDowell's place was the only burying ground in the area through at least 1742. In 1752 the Timber Ridge Church was built.
