The following was submitted to the Walton County History Detectives:
Both my husband and I have many ancestors in the Eucheeanna Valley Cemetery. I am still trying to prove that my ggg-grandfather John Gunn McLean, born 1801 in North Carolina, is the son of Donald 'Old Baldy' McLean. Family history says so and that he and his brothers received Donald McLean's land in his 1851 will, which was probated in 1853, but I have no proof.

I also have found Donald "Baldy" McLean in my search. I show all migrated from South Carolina and before that North Carolina , my line was a James McLean married to Elsie McLeod, immigrated from Isle of Skye, then one of the children, Daniel McLean, married to Flora McDonald, Who then had Roderick F Mclean and then 3 more generations of RF McLean to my brother. Our line left Florida , went to Mississippi, then to Naples, TX.
Daniel S McLean and Flora are my ancestors; I believe that he is the son of James McLean and Elsie McLeod, although I cannot find any information to back this up. Do you have any information that you can share with me, or an idea of where to look. My line comes from his son Daniel M. McLean and my grandfather, his son, was Neil McLean, my Mother Lilly McLean Ward. I have searched the Euchee Valley Presbyterian Church cemetery for headstones of these James, Daniel S & Daniel M and cannot find them or find info on them in the church notebook. I do have an article from the Pensacola Journal stating that Daniel S. McLean was one of four men to lay the cornerstone for the new Presbyterian church building; I am assuming that it was the second church building.
