Hi,
am searching for my KELSO roots in Dungannon, Drumglass, Tyrone. David KELSO married Margaret CAMPBELL. The family went to Scotland around 1850, and son James emigrated to Australia. The suburb KELSO in Townsville, Queensland Australia is named after the family.
Looks like a beautiful place to visit,
Julie

You have not mentioned that General Wolfe was half Irish. It is striking that so few Canadian scholars seem to know about this when I, a Montreal BA student, have managed to find this information in less than five minutes of research. Even my professor who teaches the Irish in Canada was not aware of this until I mentioned it. Here is a secondary source mentioning Wolfe's genealogy: http://home.alphalink.com.au/~datatree/wolf%2021.htm

Recently found out my ancestors John & Jane Kearney (Carney) emigrated from County Tyrone on the "Cambria" in 1850.
I've visited Ireland a couple of times, but now have a reason to go to Tyrone. With this website, perhaps I'll actually find out where they were from.

Very Interesting site. I believe my ancestors originally came from Tyrone in either the 1700 or 1800s and settled in Newry. Any suggestions on researching this would be appreciated.

I live in Webb City, MO USA. Looking for any information on the Hemphill family from County Tyrone in early 17th century. They may have come to Ireland from Scotland or England during the Plantation of Ulster. Particularly Sir Alexander Hemphill. The family seems to have emigrated to America in the 1700's. Didn't find that surname listed on your site. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Let me add also that the English had the same traditional naming patterns. And as among the Irish and Scottish, so too among the English, the pattern could/would be broken for example to honour a significant friend or if the parent and the grandparent to be honoured had the same name.

Hello again....I am wanting to find a Lorna Starrs of Australia, who left a message on Ancestry message boards, way back, in 2001 or so. Lorna says that her Starrs ancestors were in Fintona, Ireland. Her G? grandparents were Peter Starrs and a wife named Catherine...They had 5 children and one was Francis Paul...I know there was a Francis Starrs at Fintona...and I'm suspecting a Michael Starrs. My Grandmother, Mary Starrs Mullen also had to go to Scotland with her husband Francis Starrs,...from Tattyreagh, Tyrone and I'm told she would return in the summers to visit family at Fintona. Fintona and Tattyreagh are geographically close. I'm wanting to find Lorna to see if we have a connection.

Thank you as usual

Looking for birthplace of my great grandfather, John St. George born approx 1860. He had a brother or cousin named James St. george. Of his children, he had sons named Henry Thomas, Hilary Thomas, Edward Bernard, Joseph Edward, James Edward, Albert Elias and daughters named Catharine, Charlotte, Rose and Mary. He settled in Boston, Massachusetts after marrying Rose Maguire in Montreal, Canada. He lived for a short time in Ontario, Canada. He emigrated to the US in the 1880's. Could he have been from Tyronne? I think his wife was from the Galway area.

Hi. This looks like a great site. But I'm very frustrated looking for my relatives - Herberts. Do you want names added to some of the lists, as I have records from Victoria, Australia and Queensland, saying William Herbert, born abt 1844 was born Aughnacloy, Tyrone. His house was named after this town also. He emigrated with his parents in 1853 to Victoria with also 3 brothers. Father's name Richard, married to Sarah Banko. Richard was born in Turlough, MAYO, and Sarah came from Birr. William's brothers were Christopher, Frederick, Richard and possibly Thomas.

Thanks again for a very clear and usable site.

I was surfing the web looking for my Patterson origins in Tyrone and found this site. My Patterson were in Quebec, Canada, 1830 - 1835. Some of the gravestones in Inverness, Quebec, say they were "native of Tyrone". One report refers to Errigal Keerogue, Ologher, Tyrone. Andrew Patterson was born 1770 in Tyrone, also his sons, William 1805 and Joseph in 1808 William married first in Tyrone to Jane Birnie, born about 1808 (died before 1819) in Tyrone and had at least three sons (William, Edward, etc) before immigrating. If these names are familiar to anyone I would like to hear from you.

Currently I am researching a William Johnston born 1752 in Antrim, Ireland and lived near Strabane, county Tyrone.

He was born in Omagh in 1906 and lived with his parents (Charles Colton-1853- and Bridget - formerly Barrett -1871-) in Church Hill Omagh, His siblings were Mary-1891, Charles-1894, Hugh 1896,Bridget 1898, Catherine 1901,Patrick 1904,and Annie -1911.

My father died when I was 4 and my mother when I was in my teens, by which time we had lost touch with the Colton family in Omagh. My dad had moved to England in his twenties. I haven't got a lot of information to go on but it would be fantastic to get in touch with any cousins and fill in the gaps in my history.
Any information would be gratefully received.

Great site, thanks to those who make it possible!

I am researching for any available information that might shed light on the Mellon family 1911 or earlier. I lived in Ireland as a child and only have vague memories of the family tree and history. If you have any redirection that would assist, such as local archives it would be greatly welcomed.

My father's maternal grandfather was Charles MILLER 1847-1912, son of Peter (1795) and Jane BAIRD Miller. Family oral history says they were from Aughnacloy Tyrone. Charles' siblings were Margaret, Mary Ann, Liza, James and William. Mary Anne m James JOHNSTON of the same town. We believe James and William stayed in Ireland. The parents and others emigrated to Pittsburgh PA before 1870. Any living MILLER descendants in the area today? Or is there any one there who could do church record looks ups for me? Thanks for any clues.

I have four sisters who came to Australia Ann (b 1825), Ellen (b 1829), Jane, (b unknown) Mary Jane (b 1826). I suspect they may have been Presbyterians. (Ann married in the Presbyterian church). Ann and Mary Jane arrived in 1841, I think they may have arrived with their mother. Jane married in 1841 and Ellen in 1846. A William King was a witness at Ann's wedding.

Our Flemings came from Tyrone to Australia in the 1800s. But have since found out that I also have surname interests for COTTON, PHILLIPS and FRAME that go back to Tyrone as well. Not to mention GRIFFITH/GRIFFIN/GRIFFEN and SOMERVILLE/SOMMERVILLE/SUMMERFIELD. (spellings vary?)

My Fleming family and Griffith family came from Dromore, Tyrone NI. I think they were planter families. John William Fleming & Mary (nee Griffin/Griffith) were living in Drumquin in 1854 when daughters Jane & Margaret Fleming came to Australia in 1854. Son Robert Fleming followed in 1879.
Many of the Griffith family were already in Australia before the Fleming family came and they
were related to Alexander Griffin/Griffith of Cornamuck Dromore and his wife Jane Summerville.
Other surnames: Rutledge, Wilson, Selfridge had marriage connections with the Griffin family.
We have a Fleming Project at dna ancestry.
http://myfamily.com/group/35397733
There are now over 300 Flemings from around the world. Kin are finding kin who have been lost to each other for generations or hundreds of years due to migration to the colonies due to Y dna matching.
If you are a Fleming male or female you are welcome to join. A female needs to find a Fleming male relative to do the Y test. It is free. DNA testing is optional but most eventually have a 43 Y marker test and can upload their results from other companies so as to compare with the rest of our Fleming males. Please spread the word about this project to all Flemings in Northern Ireland and we have many with history back to Ireland and to Tyrone already in the project.
This Co Tyrone Project Site is wonderful and I have enjoyed
visiting it for many years. God bless all those who volunteer and share information for the benefit of all.

To whom it may concern;
My name is Tom,I currenly reside in Florida,USA.

I was Born in New York.

My great grandfather and 2nd great Grandfather are from Tyrone County. They migrated to the U.S. around 1875.

My Great Grandfather's name is Andrew J. McBridehe had a brother Patrick McBride. Thier Parent's name is Edward McBride & Margaret M.(Cann) McBride. Andrew was born sometime in 1865 in a town called Menaduff. ( I can't find this town though)

I have his New York Obit and his Interment Documents for Burial in St. John's Cemetary in Queens, N.Y.

I'm wondering if you could direct me to someone who could possibly help me out in locating thier birth records and thier parents Marriage ect.?

Now that I finally found out where they are from, I will plan a trip to Ireland sometime next year. I will visit County Tyrone and County Cork. My wife is second generation American. Her grandparents are from County Cork.

Little did they know at the time they decided to migrate to America they would eventually wind up being apart of such a historical family! My roots go back to Capt. John Underhill, of Oyster Bay, L.I., N.Y. and the founding father of America!

Thank you so much for your time!
Sincerely, Tom

He was a minister in the Methodist faith and preached in Pennsylvania and Ohio before emigrating to Arena, Wisconsin in 1849. He preached and farmed in Arena and died there on November 27, 1884. We are wondering if "Astraugh" was misspelled/understood and that it really was Ardstraw? Any information would be appreciated.

I am searching for info on my Great Great Great Great Grandfather; William Kyle and his wife, whom I believe to be Mary Cooper.
William brought his family from Co. Tyrone to New Brunswick abt 1829. William's eldest son (and only born in Tyrone from what I can find) was John Albert Kyle born abt 1826-27 in Co. Tyrone.
A news article about John and his wife (Eliza Jane Miller Ray) celebrating them both reaching their 'four score mark' from a Woburn, MA paper (where they moved in 1885), says that John was raised on the farm in Moncton, NB (I find John and his parents in surrounding areas in various census's).
William was born abt 1808? (A guess).
I have checked the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick (website) and their database; there were several Kyle families who hailed from Co. Tyrone.
I know it is a longshot but hoping someone here might be connected to my William Kyle and his wife Mary Cooper. In the 1851 Canadian for NB census Mary's mother is also listed in their household; she is down as Margery Cooper born abt 1772 in Ireland (I assume Co. Tyrone), Mary (Cooper) Kyle was born abt 1794.
Thanks for any help.

I am a musician with an interest in collecting 18th century Prayerbooks. I have in my collection what appears to be the personal copy of a Rev. Storey from Five Mile town dated 1796. It is a small much used collection of prayers - some printed and some hand written - including many prayers for those condemned to die. I feel this may be connected to the Irish Rebellion of 1798 (?) and perhaps this was the man who officiated at the executions of some of the rebels... I am sure someone more expert than me could assess it's significance. Please do get in contact if this sounds interesting... I could send some images if you wish. Yours sincerely... Pete Churchill

I'm enjoying your site. Searching for any information leading to my great grandfather, George Conlon who was born in Count Tyrone. He left there with an infant daughter, Catherine Cecil Conlon sometime around 1865. Sadly he died in the New York draft riots within a year after his arrival. I'll keep looking! Cheers. Martha

Much to my heart's delight, I have connected with family that dates back to Ireland. Thank you to the creator of this website: I would like to find descendants of James McGoldrick and Bridget Starrs who emigrated to Philadelphia in 1885 and 1884 respectively from Tattyreagh Glebe,Tyrone.
Bridget Starrs was the daughter of my GGGrandfather from Tattyreagh, Bernard James Starrs. James McGoldrick might well have been the son of Andrew McGoldrick of Tattyreagh.
James McGoldrick and Bridget had 6 children when they emigrated: John, Bernard, James, Andrew, Edward, and Sarah. One of these six children had 12 children and the twelfth one, died only a few years ago. James McGoldrick was a shoemaker.They lived at 5208 Woodland Avenue, Philadelphia. If there is any of their descendants viewing this sight, my email is: darlenestarrs@gmail.com or darlenestarrs@hotmail.com

Great website:
I am looking for descendants of David Maguire and Mary McSwiggan of Omagh. They had several children, some of whom were: MaryAnn, who married a Thomas Sherry, Elizabeth, Ellen, Bernadette who married a James Quigley in 1910, Sarah, Alice Josephine who married a Walter Henry Furlong in 1917 and which appears to be a Wexford name. As well, I believe there was John, and Joseph D. David Maguire appeared to have come from upper/lower Dergmoney, as did, the Maguire family in question. David Maguire had a sister Anne who was counted in the 1901 Census of Omagh with them. David Maguire had a sister named Jane Maguire Starrs Mullin/Mullan...one of my GGGrandmothers. She appears to have lived the remainder of her life on Tattyreagh Glebe, Tyrone with her Son John Starrs. John was from her marriage to a Michael Starrs. I do not know the place of origin for this Michael but, Jane Maguire and Michael Starrs are also the parents to the Master blacksmith of Omagh, named Bernard Starrs who is married to Katherine Kerrigan of Leitrim. Jane Maguire later marries Patrick Mullin/Mullen of Tattyreagh Glebe and with him she has a daughter Mary or Minnie and a son Charles. In reference to Bernard Starrs and Katherine Kerrigan,they might well be related to a Peter Starrs, who is listed as a Fowl Merchant on the 1901 Irish Census for Omagh. Bernard Starrs also has a connection to the Parkes family, originally of Leitrim. As well, Bernard Starrs raised his niece and nephew, Charles Smith and Anne Jane Smith. Their mother and father, Bridget Starrs and John Smiith died in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and Bernard and Katherine rescued them from an orphanage in Quebec and brought them back to Omagh. Unfortunately, they seem to vanish after the census.
I am Darlene Starrs, and the name 'Starrs' derives from the Irish name: "O'realachain", something, my Grandfather, Charles Starrs never let us forget. It is 100 years this year that he came to Canada and I am going back the other way...There is also a connection to Starrs in Wishaw Scotland. If there is anyone who knows or thinks they might be related to any persons named above or has information, that would be a thorough joy. My email is darlenestarrs@gmail.com or darlenestarrs@hotmail.com

My father, Patrick James Lagan, came to the U.S. from Killuckan, Co. Tyrone in 1926, The name was changed to Logan on the advise of relatives. Apparently at that time it was easier to find employment on Philadelphia`s main line if one were thought to be a Scot than Irish hence my father went by James Logan. My father had two brothers and two sisters; Mathew, Neil, Mary and Catherine. His mother`s maiden name was McCullough. Can you provide and family records for the Lagans and McCulloughs?

My great grandfather, Patrick McCormick was a farmer. My grandfathers brothers were Andrew, Daniel and Francis John. I've never known what became of Andrew who returned to Northern Ireland or Francis John. His sisters ran the farm after my great grandfather died. Any tips on how to find out what became of them and if there are any descendants? I would be most grateful. The family were Roman Catholic. I live in Newcastle upon Tyne now.

My maiden name was Agans, but I can not find anything under that name. While searching records I found some military records from New York and his name seems to have changed over time in their records, so I am guessing maybe they didn't understand the Irish dialect?

I am researching the Johnston's, McMullan's and Ramsa(e)y's. I found the site for the Derryloran Parrish and I wanted to thank all of you volunteers for you work. I still have a lot to discover but the work that went into providing the records from the church has helped me greatly.

Thanks again. and just FYI, My Grandfather (Samuel John Johnston) immigrated to New York (?) in 1881 and married Isabella McMullan, who immigrated in 1885 and they were married in 1888 , in Brooklyn, NY.

If any of you have information for these folks, please pass it on.

Her father was born there but immigrated to Ontario, Canada. Question: the Showerflood School postcard/photo, do you know the date and/or the Simpson's in the picture. Is there a way to contact any of these gentleman's families? I Thank you very much for your assistance.

I am researching my Hemphill and Hamilton Families from Co Tyrone, Ireland. Three Hemphill brothers , Robert,b 1832 James b 1835 and Johnston b 1837 came to Australia in the 1850's. Robert married Mary Hamilton in Termonamongan on 26.01.1855. James m Violet Hamilton ( I think the Hamilton girls were cousins)and Johnston came alone and married an Irish girl, Rebecca Kyle in Australia.
Robert and James came out on the "Sardinian"and Johnstone aboard thr "Arabia" 1859.
The Hemphill parents were James Hemphill and his wife Mary Russell. I think there was also Joseph b 1828 ,Charles b 1831, and Mary b 1834 and maybe a cousin Curtis. Another brother Wallace b 1839 went to USA. These names have come up in Family stories. Would dearly like to find more information on these families.

Hello, I have just signed up for the mailing list. I found the marriage date for an ancestor I am tracing his name was James Weir who married a Annie Hume at Tyrone 1879 they emigrated to Australia not long after I assume.

I am trying to locate the names of James parents I believe that it may be a Archibald Weir and Rachel Hamilton.
It is important that I get their names so I can see whether they are related to my Weir line.

I have tried to find somewhere,someone who may know or a webpage containing james birth in Tyrone in 1846 or thereabouts, something the same as your webpage assisted in having their marriage year and town of Tyrone.
Can you give me some suggestions please.
Thank you for reading my email.

On http://www.cotyroneireland.com/bornburied/bornburied-3.html#James_PETTIGREW

down on the second to last line -
Ebenezer [1751 PA-1795 SC]; Elizabeth [1751 AP-1779 SC];

The "AP" for Elizabeth probably should be like Ebenezer, a PA for Pennesylvanis. There isn't a state for which AP makes sense.

But again, thank you!

Hi, this is a wonderful site!
Im trying to trace the lamb family from Errigal Kieran, Foremass in Tyrone. James Lamb was born in 1806 and had several children with Ann McCusker. (Ann b1843, James b1845, Patrick b1847, Francis b1849, Alice b1851 Margaret b1857 and John b1864) I am unable to trace any marriage records for these two nor a birth certificate for Ann. I have been to visit graveyards in Tyrone but have not been able to find anything either. I am posting here in the hopes that someday, someone may know any information. Please email me if you do. Happy researching folks!

According to Catherine's death certificate, her mother's name was Catherine MCNAMEE. Hugh and Catherine had at least ten children, all born in Newtownsteward, and at least six died in Philadelphia, PA.

I believe the father of my mother in law here in Ohio
Michael McCaughey is the Michael that was born May 6th 1896
Because I remember looking over all the genealogy work that my poor husband, Brian did who is also gone, and realized that my Brian went to heaven on the anniversary of his grandfathers birthday.
I did some research and I am pretty sure that this is him:
Michael McCaughey Born May 6, 1896 baptised May 15th Parish Clogher, County Tyrone address Ashfield; his father being Michael and his mother being Bridget McAnally.
Of course this is all online research as I am in the USA but
perhaps it is correct.

If you discover any of this to be true kindly let me know as I am a grandma now and am starting to work again on the Family Tree that my husband loved so much.

Thank You So Much,
Eileen Hagan Ellis ( yes, Irish relatives... all)

I am looking for information on my great-great grandparents. What I know was transcribed from the Johnston Family Bible in the 1950's.
In 1806, Hugh Johnston (born about 1786) married Eleanor McFarland (born about 1788). Married in Omagh. They had a large farm & homestead, and produced the following children:
1. Ann
2. Mary
3. Margaret
4. Elleanor (married David Livingston)
5. John
6. Elizabeth (married Guy Marshall)
7. William
8. Alexander
9. James
10. Rosanna
11. Hugh (my great great grandfather) married Hanora Ryan
12. Maria
13. Charlotte

Hugh's parents were John Johnston and Ann Gillis, Eleanor's parents were Malcolm McFarland and Maria Kelley.
Hugh passed away around 1832, and his widow moved her family to St. John, New Brunswick around 1836. Two family members died there during a cholera breakout. The sons moved to East Douglas, Massachusetts, and eventually brought their mother Eleanor, and youngest sisters Maria and Charlotte.

I would love to find relatives from these ancestors, or more information on the Johnston & McFarland families.

I am search for the family of John Murray who died 1788, , York County, North Berwick, Maine USA, John may have been in Ardstraw Parish in 1725.

He may have come over with the Ulster Scot 5 ship fleet, which arrived in Boston in 1718/19. The ship he came on contained many Ulster Scot Families from Ardstraw parish, County Tyrone NI, escaping the hard times in Northern Ireland, led by there local Presbyterian Minister. They arrived first in Boston and a large group from the ship walked to Worcester MA and moved on to Rutland MA. And some moved on to Londonderry NH. And Berwick, Maine.

A James Murray died in Ardstraw Village in 1776 he may be a relation. Any suggestions where I might find Murray's in and around Ardstraw would be a big help. We have been following this trail for over 20 years and it would be nice to come to the end. /Thanks Rick Murray

I enjoyed looking around the website. I'm looking for Loughren (Laughren, Laughran, and other spellings) families from County Tyrone. They left for Canada in early 1800's. Went to Michigan, USA and then Ohio. The name spelling changed in early 1900's to Lauren in Ohio, USA.

Searching for information about Newburgh Wilson - his ancestors and siblings. He was born 26 April 1804 in County Tyrone, Ireland and died 17 April 1880 in Ontario, Canada. He married Sarah Armstrong. She was born 27 June 1813 in Ireland and died 17 June 1885 in Ontario, Canada. I do not know if they were married in Ireland or Canada. They moved to Canada before 1836 where 7 children were born: Robert, William, Jane, Isabella, John and Alexander.

While doing some genealogy I found that my blood line comes from County Tyrone in Clogher. Its comes from William I. & Margaret Little. William born in 1830 and left for the United States around 1849,at the age of 19, along with his wife. His and her final resting place is in Nebraska, United States. I plan to do more research and eventually travel to County Tyrone and the city of Clogher.
If any Little’s from that area have any more information please share. Thank you all.

My ancestor William Knight, b.1800 in Co. Tyrone, married Jane Patterson (date unknown). They had a son, William Jr. The three of them sailed to Canada in May, 1824, arriving at the port of Montreal in July. They continued their journey, taking a steamer down the St. Lawrence until they arrived in Ontario, settling in and around Frontenac County (Arden, Napanee, etc.). William and Jane went on to have several more children, about ten in all and William's occupation was a farmer. He died in 1888. I could not locate any death record for Jane, so do not know when she died.
I did months of research on several websites, not just ancestry dot com and I'm very happy to have William and Jane as my ancestors. I'm coming to Ireland for the very first time this September (2012) and I will absolutely be stopping in Tyrone!! I'll stop in a pub and have a pint for William and Jane. Cheers!!

I am the great granddaughter of Moses and Emily (or Emma - nee Berrington or Broughton)Graham. My Grandfather William was born in 1874/5 in Omagh, though some records say Belfast. His mother died at his birth and father 4 years later. There were two other children, John and Margaret. The orphans were cared for by "Aunt Martha" Douglas, we think in Strabane.

I am desperate to find if John has any descendants and Moses and Emily any siblings from whose lineage we might get more information.

The family were importing Western Red Cedar from Canada.
William emigrated to Australia in 1909 and died 1922.

There was an Aunt Minnie who was a teacher and her last know address i n 1922 was c/-JF Douglas, 295 Fifth Ave, NEW YORK CITY

His oldest son was named Francis and I wonder if that was Peter's father's name. He settled in Carlton County New Brunswick, Canada. My gggrandmother was Eleanor Johnston (b. 1807?) in Dungoghy (Dunavoghy), Lisbellaw/Dunvoow, Fermanagh. Any help referencing these places would be wonderful. If only I knew Peter's father and mother and siblings it would help. Eleanor's dad was named William (b.1781) in Dunagoghy, Fermanagh
There is something special about being Irish and I can't wait to visit.

His grandfather said that they had sailed out of Cork. His first known immigrant was John Calvin/Colvin in the mid 1700's. Not much to go on, but we are optomistic.

My grandmother is Elizabeth Johnson or Johnston. My grandfather is Alan Buchanan. They were first cousins, I think. They had a daughter together (Sarah Quinn) and gave her up to a woman in Belfast to raise in early January 1932. She was born Dec. 26th 1931, in Belfast. It was a well kept secret for obvious reasons.

I know very little other than he went into the clergy in 1932 and was Archbishop of Christ Church in Dublin for a while. I know she married someone much later and had a son, also named Alan. I would love to know his full name. He is my mother's step brother. I would love any information anyone can find for me.

Thank you,

My great-great-great grandfather, David Young, was born in Omagh in June 1824 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1848 where he joined his brother Armar in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Armar had a successful notions business that David joined and later became the Young, Smyth, & Field company. David married Mary Robinson, also from Omagh, in Philadelphia around 1849. My family & I are coming to Ireland in June 2012 & I hope to do some research on the Young & Robinson families in Tyrone.

He was the son of DANIEL MAUNSELL of Merrion Square, Dublin, and Ballywillan, county Leitrim. His wife was Alice Frend Maunsell. Rev. Maunsell's son, Dr Samuel Edward Maunsell, married Madeline Cecilia Dickson, daughter of John Burnie Dickson of Fintona and India.
I am writing a biography of my grandfather, Inspector George Edward Maunsell, who was the son of Daniel Toler Thomas Maunsell, Rev. Maunsell's eldest son.
Your website has already provided me with dates of births and deaths, and I would be very happy to receive any more information about Rev. Maunsell and his family that might be available in Fintona.

I would like to report an inaccuracy regarding John Black of Barre Massachusetts. John was born in Boston and baptised at the Arlington Street Church. Father is Marmaduke Black and mother is Jane Richmond. Marmaduke did arrive in the colonies around 1730 possibly from Londonderry. There is likely a second John Black who's information is being mingled with my ancester and may even be a relative.

Donaghcavey Cemetery Iscriptions

Hello Phil, thanks to you and the other involved for your work in providing the information re the above. My family originated from that area and two of the transcribed headstones, I am sure, relate to my family.

Row M
108 IHS/ Edward Sloden d./ t.1./ January, 19th, 1817 / Aged 30 Years.
109 IHS/ H.1.t.b.o. Owin Sludon / who dyed May the 9, 1719.


My great grandfather was Edward Sludden who came to Scotland c1840, and was born around 1808, there will be a connection to Edward Sloden and Owin Sludon, which I am trying to piece together.

Can you advise me if all the headstones in Donaghcavey Cemetery have been transcribed (where possible) and are there other cemeteries in that area where some info may be found.

Kind Regards

Kenny Sludden

On the list from Stewartstown I found Edward, who could be the link.

If Edward O'Neill immigrated to Canada, he could be my great great grandfather.

My mother's genealogy search stops there. Edward would have been born c. 1820 ? Because his son James Francis was born c. 1845.

I'm trying to find some information on my great grandparents. William Irwin,in Ireland, in county Tyrone(born 1820#. William his wife Elizabeth Eliza Irwin #nee Clinton), immigrated to Canada in 1953 with their four year old son Robert Irwin. They went to Port Hope, and later to Midland Ontario. My Greatgrandparents grave stone says they were from County Tyrone in Ireland. They were Presbyterian in religion in Canada and likely attended a Presbyterian Church in Ireland. I suspect they would have had adddional family in county Tyrone. Any assistance on finding information about siblings of either greatgrandparent or suggestions on where to look is greatly appreciated.

Hello,
Great site congratulations to all involved. I wonder if anyone can tell me where I can pick up the birth certificate of my ancestor Mary Loughery who was born 18/01/1833 I think in the area and I would also like to pick up her marriage certificate, she married James Freel in Hollands, Strabane, County Tyrone 14/09/1856. If anyone has any advice I would be more than grateful...

Nice browsing through your site.
I'm trying to find any info available for my paternal grt-grandmother...Edith(Edwards)Anna Mary McKean born 9 Oct 1865 in Co.Tyrone. We are not positive but have been led to believe she might have been born in Leckpatrick parish possibly to a Samuel McKean and maybe a Louisa Higgins quite possibly unmarried. We are not sure about the 'Edwards' part of her name which shows in the family bible and on my paternal grandmothers marriage licence where she has listed her mother's name as Edith Edwards yet it does not show on various other documents including her siblings marriage licences.
Edith was born in Tyrone and at some point made her way, probably alone, to eastern Canada where she connected with a young man by the name of David Cole Nice born about 1863. They had two sons, one in 1885 and the other in Feb.1887 while in Nova Scotia/New Brunswick, then between Feb and the end of June migrated to Vancouver, BC where David drowned in a fishing accident in the Fraser River on 9 July 1877. The following year Edith married my paternal grt grandfather James Errington in Vancouver where they lived until her death in 1941 and his in 1946. If anyone can help with her beginning years and her parentage I'd be grateful. I maintain the shared tombstone of both Edith and James in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver, Bc, Canada and visit it often willing it to give up their stories.

Micklam who married Margaret Short of Drumneil in 1743.
I think he may be my husband's gg/Grandfather although
there is a slight difference in the spelling, which was
not unusual in those days. He migrated to Ireland from
Scotland. There is another Robert Meaklim of Drumneil who was a witness to the marriage of Nancy Short and Edward
Anderson, Farmer of Fidor, 7 May 1861. This Robert I take
to be the grandson of Robert Micklam and the grandfather
of my husband, whose forebears came from Drumneil.
Any info would be much appreciated.

Samuel Burke was born in County Tyrone, Ireland, in 1782, and got married nearly 60 years ago. About 29 years ago, he came to Canada, settling in Goderich Township. He died there in his 91st year and was buried in Goderich Cemetery. His wife was Mary and his four children were possibly William, Samuel, Elizabeth, and James. This was found in the Christian Guardian published in 1872. There is a possibility they were from Errigal-Keerogue, Tyrone, Ireland but that is not certain as no real proof was given other than an IGI individual record. If anyone knows about this family I would appreciate hearing. Thanks.

I am interested in the ship's passengers on the Adam Lodge voyage of 1837 from Londonderry.

Many of the 195 children on board that journey were not named. Slowly, the descendants of this voyage are finding out the names of the missing childen's names. Also many lied about their ages to get a free passage

For example, I note that Arthur Gray listed as being 35 at time of sailing was really 57 years of age. He lived in Australia until 1875, being 95 years old then. His wife Margaret was 46 years old and their children were Robert b 1817,Margaret (b 1823), Mary (b1820), Catherine (b 1825), Isabella (b 1827), Rebecca (b 1829), and Jane (b 1833)

Oliver Crawford, in his 74th year, a native of Co. Tyrone, Ireland, died on the 15th instant, at Horton. (Ref. The Church Record (newspaper), 24th February 1859).

I believe the town of Horton is in Kings Co. N.S.

I am looking for any info on my maternal Great Grandfather John Robinson born about 1869 in Goland, Castlederg, Co Tyrone and was a Blacksmith in Castlederg. He died around 1937/38 in Co Tyrone. I believe John married Mary Johnson in Killeter Presbyterian Church, Termonamongan, Castlederg, on 26 August 1891. John's son Andrew born 6th February 1894 in Goland. Andrew moved to Liverpool around 1910/11 where he later joined the police force.
Also Oliver Rolston (Rollston/Rolleston/Roulston) born between 1858 and 1861 at Creeduff Co Tyrone and said to have been baptised at Omagh Co Tyrone March 15 1861.
Does anyone have any knowledge/records or anything to help me.

Visited Carrickmore, the home of my paternal reat grandparents, in July and found the family's grave plot in St. Colmcille's cemetery. Patrick Maguire d. 1904, wife Catherine McNally Maguire, d. 1908, son Peter Maguire d. 1940s, daughter Mary Maguire, d. 1950s, daughter in law Agnes Maguire, grand daughter Kitty Maguire d. 1982. What a charming village and how very welcoming the people were!
My grandmother, Catherine Maguire Glass came to Philadelphia with siblings Patrick Maguire, Mary Maguire (who later returned to Carrickmore to live with Kitty), and Sarah Maguire who, I believe, died in the great flu epidemic of the early 20th century.
Any relations or information would be welcome!

My 2x grandfather Michael Loughran was born in Ireland in 1834 and his son John Loughran was born 19 May 1859 in Killucan, County Tyrone. Michael Loughran was married to Catherine Slayne or Slane. Michael Loughran immigrated to the United States in 1864 without his family to get himself established and then later returned for his family. Catherine and the children immigrated in April 1879.

My desire is to connect with anyone related to the my Loughran family who may still be in the Tyrone County area. I have a desire to come visit this area within the next few years.

Looking for anyone with the surnames COLGAN, FERGUSON, STAR, STARRS, or STAIRS. John C. COLGAN is supposed to have left Strabane area in the 1820s. Wife was Rose STAR (or one of the other variations). They settled in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada by 1827. John and Rose had a daughter Rose, b. 1803, who married Hugh FERGUSON, also born about 1803. He is supposed to have travelled with the family from County Tyrone to Canada, where he married Rose. There is Canadian documentation on John C. COLGAN, and quite a bit of Canadian documentation on Hugh FERGUSON, but can find nothing in Ireland.

Mark O'Brien is my great great great grandfather. While his birthday is somewhat mysterious, we believe that he was born sometime between 1828 - 1832 in the County Tyrone, Ireland. According to his death certificate, Mark was a resident of New York City for 35 years, so he would have emigrated in about 1838.

I am not sure on the names of his parents, but his mother migh have been named Elisa (born about 1790) and a sister named Sarah A. (born about 1832). He may also have had a brother named Arthur because an Arthur witnessed his naturalization. (Mark witnessed Arthur's naturalization). Before he joined the Union Army, he worked as a clerk.

Sometime before he joined the Army, and probably before 1858, he married Catherine Hackett.

During the American Civil War Mark was in Company F.131st New York Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted on Aug 6 1862. During his service he was captured at a battle outside of Brashear City, Louisiana and became a POW. He was wounded at a battle outside of Winchester, Virginia on the 19th of September, 1864. Eventually, this wound (to the top of his foot???) would result in his medical discharge on the 6th of June 1865.

Because of his honorable service during the war he was eligible for naturalization and on the 9th of October 1868, he became a citizen of the United States.

Unfortunately,he would die five years later. The description on the death certificate states that "Mark consumed] hard drinks continuously for four weeks..." He is buried in Calvary Cemetery, in Queens, New York.

He had several children. I am descended from his youngest son, Mark Aloysius, but he had several other children. The oldest is Andrew O'Brien, born in about 1858. Then next oldest is a daughter by the name of Frances O'Brien born in about 1864. Then came George O'Brien born about 1865. Then came Arthur and Augustiune, who died has as infants.

If any of this sounds familiar, please message me.

I have found an obituary of my children's gr gr grandmother, Sarah Sally Muldoon born 01 May 1816 in the County of Tyrone. At 23 years of age she married Bernard Geary bn abt 1816/1817 About 3 months later they travelled by sailing vessel to Canada. They were one of many couples promised by a catholic Priest farm land in Canada. They landed in Quebec Canada after 9 weeks but only to find it was a hoax. Then they traveled to Syracusse, The story in the Obit was that Sarah left something behind and they missed the 1st sailing; took a later ship only to find when they arrived in the late summer that the ship they were originally scheduled on, was lost at sea. Maybe you could direct me Thank you for any information you can find. I am 80 years old and would love to find info on these two gr gr grandparents. Regards, Marilyn Walz

In reading through family history written by my grandmother, I found her research takes our family back to a James Stewart (b. 1670, d.1707) of Augher, Tyrone Co., Ireland. He married a Florence Herbert, daughter of Rev. Archibald Herbert and Jane (Howard) Herbert. Since I cannot figure out my grandmother's sources for her information, are there records I might find of these people?

Hi Gen Angels and Cherubs,

Enjoying the additions and improvements to the Tyrone website. Great work guys and a credit to you all... deserving of medals for your faithfulness and enthusiasm.

My old Fleming/Flemming site and Griffith-Griffin family sites have moved from MSN to Multiply.com (not a very happy move but had no choice)

The new web site addy is:
http://www.FlemmingFamilySite.multiply.com

and has most of all the info and pics transferred from old site at msn. Those that are missing will be replaced as time allows as well as any info that was lost. My surnames of interest for Tyrone are:
Fleming/Flemming,Griffith,Griffin,Griffen.Sommerville, Summerfield, Wilson, Rutledge, Bowles, Selfridge, Donohue

All the best with the site and further research for the lovely County of Tyrone in Northern Ireland.

Samuel died on 27 September 1894, and left his estate to his son, Samuel Jnr, who lived at Tullydoortans, also west Tyrone.

Other sons were William, and James (my gGrandfather) who lived in Fearn, Co. Donegal, with his wife Matilda, nee McCarter.

Samuel Snr had a brother Robert, listed as a land-owner in 1857, and other brother(s?) who emigrated to the USA around that time.

I have started to research my great grandfather, Arthur Patrick Breen born 1881 County Tyrone, married 1906. He served as a private with the firdt Irish Regiment, his number was 6419. I have medals belonging to him from South Africa and the First World War. His medals including two from South Africa, one under Victoria and one from Edward VII, The Victoria medal states Belfast, Wittebergen Cape Colony 1899-1902. My mother believes he lied about his age in order to be enlisted. I would be interested to receive any information you might have please. He was held in a prisoner of war camp in Germany, during the first world war, where he managed a football team and played against the German guards.

Arthur Connolly (b. 1811 in Ireland) married Sarah McLoughlin/McLaughlin (b. 1811 in Ireland) about 1834.

They had the following children:

-James born about 1838. He married Margaret Dunbar (b. 1838 Eramosa Township Wellington County Ontario Canadda) on 9 Feb 1859 in Wellington Ontario Canada.
Their children include Sarah C. Connolly (1859) and Eliza A. Connolly (1860) both born in Canada.

-John Connolly born 21 Jun 1842 in Co. Tyrone.He married Mary Jane Martin (b. 4 Dec 1852 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) on 7 Jan 1878 in Wellington County, Ontario Canada.
Their children include: Arthur C. Connolly (1880), Annie Connolly (1882), Mary Connolly (1884), Margaret Connolly (1885), Sarah Connolly (1887), James Joseph Connolly (1892) and Edward Thomas Connolly (1895) all born in Ontario Canada.

-Margaret Anne Connolly born 20 May 1845. She married Mark Tutton (born 1841 in England) on 14 Apr 1873 in Wellington County, Ontario Canada. Their children include Thomas Tutton (1874), Arthur Tutton (1875), Sarah Jane Tutton (1878), James Tutton (1879) and Margaret Tutton (1885).

-Sarah J. Connolly born 10 Aug 1845, Ballynatubbrit, Killyclogher, County Tyrone.She married John Brown (b. Jun 1846 in Denmark) on 29 Oct 1872 in Boston, Mass, USA.
Their children include: Mary Ellen Brown (1872) Peter Brown (1873), Ann Elizabeth Brown (1875), Sarah Jane Brown (1876), Catherine Brown (1878), Matilda Brown (1880), Margaret M.

-Arthur Connolly born 1 Mar 1850 in Ballynatubbrit, Killyclogher, county Tyrone. He married Julia Ann Mulloy (born abt 1841 in Wellington County Ontario Canada) on 21 Jan 1874 in Wellington County, Ontario Canada.
I do not have data on any children for them.

-Mary Connolly was born 1859. I'm not sure if she is a daughter. She was on the 1871 census with Arthur and Sarah in Canada. This census does not list the relationships of the people. I note that if Sarah was really born in 1811, she would have been 49 when Mary was born.

I have been researching the family trees and as my mother wasn't married to my father the Family name is from my mother's father Robert McSorley. I have a copy of a family tree done by another member of the McSorley's in my area and I have the name JAMES McSORLEY. He is down in the Flax List for 1796 as farming land in Ardstraw, Co Tyrone. I have been trying to find out anything I could about James, but cannot locate anything other than his wife, Margaret. She may not have been his first wife because he had a son Hugh born in 1794, so I am assuming that Hugh was born in Ireland and came to Wigan with his father and his new family.James and Margaret went on to have other children and although I have a record of Margaret's death, there is no record of James's. Or of their marriage. But then again, most of the Index's at the moment do not go back further than 1837. If you can tell me ANYTHING, I would be grateful. I have located a Cornelius McSorby (McSorley) on the Flax List on your site. Thanking you in advance. Kathleen Devine (nee McSorley)

Researching the Averell family history - found an interesting lead on your website for a Thomas Averell, who bought land in the Mountjoy Precinct in 1620. Family lore suggests they were Huguenots, who first fled to England and then to Ireland - so 1620 would probably fit in well with that theory. Thank you.

A brother and sister, Maxwell and Elizabeth Love through Consulate Londonderry gave power of attorney to Elizabeth Love of Lawrenceburg, Lawrence, Tennessee Dec 18, 1854 Elizabeth of Lawrenceburg was a niece and there was other relative in the area: George and Matthew, who was naturalized in Pennsylvania in 1823. Matthew had property in Lawrenceburg and Elizabeth inherited a portion in 1852. Eliza Love Smith (dau. of Elizabeth) wrote a letter to a James Sproule in Ireland and called him brother, in 1900. The letter was returned as undeliverable and mentions Strabane post office. I have a picture of Eliza. Do you think there is any connection? Thank you for the website.

Researching Irish family - Charles Donaghy -County Tyrone born Dec 1856, Roman Catholic I believe and immigrated to England, then to Nova Scotia, Canada then to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Returned to Ireland roughly 1924 with his grandson Gerald Donaghy who went by the name of Kevin. Gerald (Kevin) returned to Canada and no one living knows when Charles died or where he is buried. I have been told that he operated a small chicken farm when he returned Ireland. Wife was Helen Sarah Hyatt born 1869 of Ireland or England. Anyone who's out there searching gravestones please take a look arounf for me; especially in County Tyrone as we expect that is where he went back to.
