MacGregor and Ives Families

Updated January 2, 2005

I've been researching my family for about 10 years. The MacGregors came from Perth, Scotland in 1857. George MacGregor married Charlotte Noble (descendant of Wisconsin pioneer Ezekiel Tainter, Revolutionary War Veteran Stephen Tainter, and Mayflower Descendants (John Houghland and the Tilleys). Their daughter, Ellen MacGregor, wrote some of the first science fiction for children in the Miss Pickerell series.

The Ives family came to New Haven, Connecticut in the 1600s. Harry Marks Ives married Agnes Toal, daughter of Irish potato famine immigrants and they moved to Kansas.

    One of our MacGregor males had his Y chromosome DNA tested for the MacGregor DNA project. Y chromosomes are passed unchanged from father to all sons with only a occasional mutation. The more alleles in common the more closely related are two individuals. We were most closely related to the current MacGregor clan chief.
