      James Mackall, the Pioneer, was born in Scotland in 1630 and came to this country about 1655. He settled in Calvert County, Maryland at what was known as "The Cliffs" and married Mary Grahame, a connection of the Claverhouse family of the Earldom of Dundee. It has been stated that she was a descendant of Earl Grahame of Montrose, or the Earl Grahame of Lennox. The Grahames of Lennox and Montrose are believed to have been of the same clan.
