  • Notes 
    • About 1747, at age 16, Redmond Archibald McMahan immigrated from Ireland to North Carolina. He landed in either Virginia or North Carolina, made his way into Tennessee and then on to Alabama, where he is buried in the McMahan Cemetery in Jackson County, Alabama.

      There is debate over Archibald's given name. Descendants of Sanders McMahan have always been told that the father of Saunders was "Redmond" McMahan and they have a bible record to prove it. We now believe Archibald and Redmond are one in the same. No one knows for sure how the two names came about since they have not been found to be used together.

      The Personal Property Tax Lists for the Year 1787 for Montgomery County, Virginia (Netti Schreiner-Yantis, Genealogical Book in Print, 1987; FHL 975.5 R4sy vol 8, p 454-455) show that Redmon McMahan and George Byrd were enumerated on the same day, so they were probably neighbors. Redmon's son Archibald married George's daughter Elizabeth Byrd.
