Consulting CD352 from Genealogy.com 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
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!
