And there was Micum McIntire

He kicked and cuffed Sam Treathy so
He could neither go or stand.”

Micom Mecantire marck, 1700

Micum McIntire first worked the mills for Valentine Hill either at Oyster River or at Cochecho Falls.  After the death of fellow Scot Alexander Mackaneer, he married the widow, Dorothy Pierce Mackaneer McIntire.  A few years later his brother-in-law John Curmuckhell was slain in an Indian attack, and McIntire administered Curmuckhell’s small estate.  Some historical sources state that McIntire married Curmuckhell’s widow, but this is in error.  He was already married to the widow’s sister.  The widow, Anne Pierce Curmuckhell, later married John Bracy.  About 1707 the McIntire garrison house was built. Incredibly, it is still standing.  Possibly the oldest in the state of Maine, it can be seen on Cider Hill Road (state highway 91) at Scotland, York County, Maine.

HTDNH 82 speaks of the legend from 1650 that every 10th Scot prisoner was to be shot… McIntire ran and was wounded but not killed
[Stinson notes that the 11th Scot in line was not part of McIntire’s story!]
Stackpole thinks he worked mills Cochecho [HTDNH 82]

A Junkins family history states that Valentine Hill owned Micum McIntire, Robert Junkins, and Andrew Rankin. [http://junkinsfamilyassociation.wikidot.com/robert-junkins-story]

1659 – on Dover tax list [HTDNH 82]
11 Dec 1662 – Grant at Kittery above Salmon Falls [HTDNH 82]
1664 – Taxed Dover as “Micome the Scotchman” [HTDNH 82]
1670 – bought 40 acres from John Pierce [GDMNH 553]
before 4 Sept 1671 – married Dorothy, daughter of John Pierce and widow of Alexander Mackaneer [GDMNH 472]
1673 – wife absent from meeting [GDMNH 472]
11 Sep 1677 – McIntire administered the small estate of his slain brother-in-law, John Carmuckhell. [GDMNH 129]
Garrison house, still standing in 1913 [HTDNH 82]
17 Apr 1700 – will; wife died before he made his will [GDMNH 472]
22 Mar 1704-5 – Inventory valued at £199: 0: 0
Will is recorded in MW 141-143
three sons: John, Daniel, and Micum
[Note: in HTDNH 77, author Everett Stackpole states that McIntire married widow of John Curmuckhell about 1675.  This is refuted (and probably corrected) in GDMNH 472]

  1. Jeannette Wood says:

    My mother, Wilhelmina McIntire was a direct descendant of Micum. However, in Robert McIntire’s genealogy, she is listed as stillborn. That, of course, is incorrect or I wouldn’t be here.
    Micum was brought here on the Unity with, we think, are his brothers Robert and Phillip. He settled in York, Maine where many of his descendants still reside. We have a McIntire reunion every year in York and are beginning the task of updating our genealogy.
    If there is any way in which I might be of help to you, please let me know.

    • I would love to have your help! May I also add you as a Descendant/Researcher to his page?

    • David F. McIntire says:

      I have been to several of the reunions and have visited the garrison house and the home of Mary (McIntire) and Robert Davis in York.

      I am trying to get some history of Micum McIntire and his predecessors before he came to this country. Might you have such information?

      Thank you.

      David McIntire

  2. Jeannette McIntire Sears Wood says:

    Yes, by all means add me as a Descendant/researcher for Micum McIntire.

  3. Wylie McIntyre says:

    I would like information about Micum McIntyre as well.

  4. Margaret Ballinger says:

    Hello. My oldest McIntire is James born 1802 KY. My sister, along with 3 close cousins and one 4th cousin all had our DNA tested through Ancestry.com. Our DNA matches to over 80 others who are all descendants of Philip or Micum. Mostly Philip. So far I found no matches to the other reported McIntyre SPOW, Robert, which leads me to think Philip and Micum might have been related in some way. I am willing to share my test results and research tree on Ancestry where I have entered the lineages of all all the matches into it so I can see how they all connect. My username on Ancestry is clfcarebear and my email is marge.ballinger@gmail.com

  5. Brian J. McIntyre says:

    I believe I am descended from Micum McIntire also. I have only been able to get as far back as my third great grandparents though. These being: Peleg McIntyre ( was also spelled McIntire in early documents ) born in either New York State or Vermont on Feb. 16, 1805. He married Elizabeth Ann Mason of Massachusetts on June 3, 1830 in presumably New York State. She was born on Dec. 30, 1810 in MA but I do not know where again. The earliest reference where I can find them is the 1840 US census where they are living in Fleming, Cayuga County, New York. In that, he is listed as “Peley MacIntyre” which is just an error on the part of the enumerator as it was Peleg McIntyre/MacIntyre for sure. I do know that my gg grandfather, Gordis McIntyre was born there along with a few siblings. They soon migrated and were among one of the first families to settle in Elkhorn Grove, Carroll County, Illinois. A few other children were born there. They eventually ended up in Iowa where I have found Peleg buried as “Peter McIntyre” in Oakfield, Audubon County, Iowa. He died on 28 Jan 1874. Elizabeth Ann ended up remarrying to William Morris of England. She died on 27 Sep 1895 in Mt Etna, Adams County, Iowa. Our family history is well known from my great great grandfather, Gordis McIntyre on up until now. I have searched every source I can find for any hint of Peleg McIntyre and who his parents might have been but have not had any luck although I would consider myself a pretty good genealogist. I have a tree on Ancestry where I have put down who I thought might be his parents, but without any proof I am loathe to keep it on there for long. The story that my great grandfather, Horace McIntyre always told my great aunt, his daughter, is the one he was told by his father, Gordis McIntyre. That being that we came over to MA originally as a result of Cromwell. We then eventually settled in the Green Mountains of Vermont and then to New York from there. The story talks of the McIntyre’s fighting in the Revolutionary War as members of The Green Mountain Boys although this may be some ’embellishment’ to the story as I can find no McIntyre that seems to be in the GM Boys during that time period. I know we were here in North America at a very early date but as you can see, I have a real problem since I cannot get any farther back than Peleg and Elizabeth Ann McIntyre in Cayuga County, New York. I am not expecting anyone to do my genealogy for myself and family but if the names of Peleg McIntyre and Elizabeth Ann Mason – McIntyre sound familiar in any way to anyone, please let me know at thedukeofhelena@yahoo.com or by posting to this great site.
    Thank you so much and keep up the great work and research everyone! I find this all incredibly fascinating!

    Thanks Again,
    Brian J. McIntyre
