Biographical/Historical Note

Lachlan McIntosh (1727-1806) was born in Scotland, the son of John Mohr and Marjory (Fraser) McIntosh. He and his family came to Savannah in 1736 with Oglethorpe and settled in Darien, Georgia. In 1748, he moved to Charleston, SC, where he worked as a clerk in a counting house and lived with Henry Laurens. He later became a successful planted on the Altamaha River. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, he was appointed Colonel of the 1st Regiment, Georgia line, and was soon promoted to Brigadier-General in the Continental Army. McIntosh dueled with Button Gwinnett in 1777, fatally wounding his opponent. He served for a short while in the Western Department, and he returned to Georgia to lead the unsuccessful attempt to recapture Savannah. He was taken prisoner at the fall of Charleston and, after his exchange, he served until the end of the war, attaining the rank of Major-General. He returned to Georgia and resumed planting. McIntosh married Sarah Threadcraft; together, they had eight children: John, Lachlan Jr., William (who married a Mrs. Tate), George, Henry Laurens, Hester (who married 1. John Peter Ward and 2. Dr. Nicholas Byard), and Catherine (who married Charles Harris). Both William and Lachlan, Jr., served in the Revolutionary War (John was in the Bahamas at the time). McIntosh became a member of the Society of the Cincinnati in 1784; the same year, he was elected to Congress.
