    McGillivray Plantation ruins ....Wetumpka

    The McGillivray Plantation ruins can be found 4 miles N. of Wetumpka. Built around 1750, it was destroyed during an Indian attack sometime later. There are legends that a hoard of coins and silver tableware remains buried or hidden on the property.



    Lachlan McGillivray (Dunmaglass, Inverness, Scotland, c. 1718 –1799) was a prosperous fur trader and planter in colonial Georgia with interests that extended from Savannah to central Alabama. He was the father of Alexander McGillivray and the great-uncle of William McIntosh, two of the most powerful and historically important Native American chieftains in the history of the Southeast
    There is no record of M'Gillivray having married in the legal sense at any point of his life, though he entered into a long-term marital relationship with a biracial Creek woman named Sehoy Marchand. Sehoy Marchand's father (at least according to early chroniclers) was Jean-Baptiste Marchand, a French officer stationed at Fort Toulouse in the early 18th century (and according to most records murdered there in a 1722 mutiny, though this contradicts historical evidence). Sehoy Marchand's mother, also named Sehoy, was a member of the Wind Clan, a politically powerful lineage, of the Upper Creeks and her immediate family included several important chieftains in the nation
