John Yeary's wifes mother

I have an old Yeary family history written by J.K.P. Yeary in l926 that states that I quote, Walter Yeary, Sr. "His mother was Mary Elizabet Chinault, the captains first wife, who was the daughter of William Chinault from France. His wife was a Miss McDonald and a sister to Sargent McDonald who took part in the Revolutionary War. Later in the history, "Her mother is said to have a McDonald and a sister to the noted "Sergent McDonald" who served under General Francis Marion during the Revolutionary War. I have found there truly was a Sgt. Alexander MacDonald who was Marions chief scout. Also, this Sgt. MacDonalds father was Tory General Donald MacDonald commander of Tory forces at the battle of Moore's Creek NC. Has anyone heard this before?
