John Mohr Mackintosh
Captain John Mohr Mackintosh's exploits are recorded in the chronicles of early-American colonial history. Mackintosh was a direct descendant of the Mackintosh of Mackintosh Clan Chiefs of Scotland and one of the first Scots to pioneer coastal Georgia.

According to a record in John Mhor's family Bible, he "Took shipping on board the "Prince of Wales," Captained by  George Dunbar, at Inverness in October 1735, with some hundred of sons for the new Colony of Georgia, came in at Tybee Bar the beginning of January, 1736, and landed at Darien, on the Altamaha river, the place of their destination, the 1st of
February, same year." He married Marjory Frazer of Garthmore, 4th of March, 1724. They brought with them six children born in Scotland. A further daughter Ann, called Nancy, being born in Georgia, 18th April, 1737.

As captain of the Highlanders, who came over with him, John McIntosh joined Oglethorpe in fighting the Spanish in 1740-42, being also a member of the Provincial Assembly held in Savannah in 1751. His sons, William and Lachland, served in the Revolution, the first attaining the rank of Colonel, the second Major-General, so the family early won the sobriquet, "the fighting Macintoshes."

Shortly after their arrival in Georgia, another party of Scotsmen came, among others, their kinsmen, the Baillies. Sometime in the latter seventeen fifties, Robert Baillie and Ann McIntosh were married.

 John arrived in Georgia in Januray or February, 1736, along with 44 men, 20 women, 25 boys, and 17 girls. While under the command of Georgia-Colony founder General James Edward Oglethorpe, Mackintosh raised and commanded the Highland Independent Company of Foot. This volunteer contingent of Scottish settlers joined with Indians from the Creek and Cherokee Nations, and regulars of the heavily Scottish 42nd Highland Regiment of Foot, to defeat a Spanish invasion force at the Battles of Gully Hole Creek and Bloody Marsh (ca. 1742). These victories ended the long-running Anglo-Spanish struggle over the Southeast American Colonies, securing these colonies for Great Britain.

In later years, Mackintosh’s son and nephew served General George Washington during the American Revolution. Later descendants became two Georgia governors: George McIntosh Troup and Thomas Spalding. The Mackintosh line is also associated with Creek Indian Chief William McIntosh, and the late W.E. “Dode” McIntosh, principal chief of the Creek Indian Nation.
