For answers to all these questions and many more, read Duane Meyer's classic The Highland Scotsof North Carolina 1732-1776 (1961), which I believe is still in print from the Univ of North Carolina Press.

We here in North Carolina have always been told
that the1000s of Scots who settled the Upper
Cape Fear Valley area were Highland Scots.
Their descendants say they are Highlanders.
I wonder if they were what I have heard referred to
as "Displaced Crofters" (???) who came directly
to America, or those you say migrated to the
Lowland cities for work, and then to America?
The area around Fayetteville (and Fort Bragg) in
Cumberland Co is still heavily populated with people
with Scottish surnames. There is also a Scotland
County in the vicinity.
