I joined this group so that I could connect with you. My haplogroup is the same as yours and the areas of research are similar- Alabama, NC, West Africa etc. I have seen McLamb surname several times among hits on Ancestry and FamilytreeDNA. I recall Susan McLamb. The family name that may be of interest is McWilson. They were in Taylorville, Alabama.
