Title: Another McLea coming to America, 1821
Posted by: Kyle MacLea

Consulting CD352 from and the book on that CD titled "Passengers Who Arrived in the United States . . . 1821-1823", I found a reference to a McLea arriving in Savannah, Georgia Q.E. Dec. 31, 1821:

James McLea, 30, M, G. Britain, intending to become an inhabitant of the U.S.

Ship:  Three Sisters
Captain:  Bell

Along with James, the ship contained 1 person from "England," 1 from "Ireland," and the rest from "G. Britain."  Included in the list were McIntosh, Reid, Burns (Robert no less), Hampsead, McLaren, Alexander, Ross, Frazer, Dreghorn, Bertram, McHenry, and McGrey.

A quick search seems to indicate that a ship named Three Sisters was a schooner that went into port at Halifax, N.S.; Kingston, Jamaica; and Grenada a few times 1810-1820.  I don't know any more about this ship or its origin, but I did not look extensively.

Hope this is useful!
