Oh, Those 18th-century Scottish Carolinian Names...

I've been doing some family history for/with Dad, and as I've been scrolling through these microfilm copies of the 1770ish deeds of Cumberland County, NC, I found one deed of land sold by--are you ready?--Marmuduke Rawls to Dugald Blue.

Marmuduke Rawls to Dugald Blue. (I like to pronounce it Doo'-guld, with the emphasis on the Doo.)

This is fantastic living.
