The McEvers

Research to date indicates that many spellings are used by descendants of Clan Ivor/Iver or Clan MacIvor/MacIver as they emigrated throughout the world. For example, one branch in the U.S. begins with Andrew McEver, who bought land in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1737. His son John fought in the American Revolution, had several sons, and eventually moved to Georgia. There are many of his McEver descendants living in Georgia today.

Chaplain Daniel McEver of the US Army, who is a descendant of this branch of the family, has been at the forefront of research into Clan MacIvor origins. In collaboration with members of the Gulf Shore (Cumberland County, Nova Scotia) branch of the MacIvors, he generously shared the following information with this website. While some of the information must of course be subjected to further research, Chaplain McEver is hopeful that inclusion of same on this website will generate additional debate and discussion on these matters to assist in Clan MacIvor research.
