William McCandless

Birth: 1752, Scotland
Death: Dec., 1826
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

His tombstone is inscribed simply "W McC." His year of birth is an estimate. His wife was Martha McBride McCandless. She was born abt 1755 in Scotland and died aft Jan 1827, probably in Fayette Twp, Allegheny Co, PA.

Some Internet sources say William was born in Scotland; others say he was born in "White Horn" (presumably a reference to the Isle of Whithorn). Does anyone have proof of a correct birthplace?
