Flora MacDonald
Birth: 1722
South Uist
Outer Hebrides, Scotland
Death: Mar. 4, 1790
Highland, Scotland

Scottish Folk Figure. Born at Milton on South Uist, Isle of Skye, in 1746 she was living in Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides when Bonnie Prince Charlie took refuge there after the defeat of the Jacobite Uprising in the Battle of Culloden. She assisted him in his escape to France, and was arrested. She was imprisoned but was released in 1747 and married Allan Macdonald of Kingsburgh, a kinsman, in 1750. They both emigrated to North Carolina where, though initially farmers, her husband joined a regiment of Royal Highland Emigrants in the American War of Independence. He was captured and expelled to Nova Scotia and after a time they both returned to Skye, where they took up residence. Flora MacDonald died at Kingsburgh on Skye in 1790. She's interred in Kilmuir Cemetery, near Uig, Isle of Skye. (bio by: Nes Pagani)
