I have learned a lot from explanations re: parish, towland etc. Maps of parishes. Think I might be able to somewhat confidently place both families in Dunnamona, Donacavey Parish from what I have seen in Griffiths Evaluation. Only know that Isaac and Elizabeth Wilson emigrated to Ontario Canada in 1833 with son, William, born in 1833. A very helpful useful site. Thank you.

Comments:
I am searching for any and all information regarding my great-great-grandfather, Charles Hood Irving/Irwin who was bortn in Newtownstewart ion 31st December, 1818. He reportedly worked at the Hood & Company Store which opened in 1820 and is open yet today.

He left for America in 1840 going first to Pennsylvania - presumably to stay with or visit relative, then walked to Ohio where he - being a carpenter - helped construct the capitol building in Columbus. Here he met and married Mary Jane Pugh, an immigrant from Wales. They lived in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and finally Iowa where Charles died on Christmas Eve, 1893 followed 15 days later by his wife.

I have papers which state that our branch of the Irving tree was descendant from the Irvings of Bonshaw, Kings of Scotland - including Duncan - and prior to that, the High Kings of Ireland. The town, river etc. Irving/Irvine in Ayrshire is said to be named after our ancestors as is a village in Ireland.

Surnames researching in Co Tyrone BLAIR
Have you found any usful information Not yet
Comments:
I am searching for an ancestor named Letitia Blair, who came from Co. Tyrone and landed in Sydney Australia on 12 September, 1839. She was a free woman - a children's maid and came in the care of a George Douglas (probably a nurse for his children). She married my great-great grandfather, Caleb Sadler, a convict, on 23 December, 1839. From that date, her name disappears and the mother of his first child, born in 1840 is named Mary McCammon. I presume (hope) that Letitia changed her name for some reason. Letitia's parents were John Blair and Elizabeth Smith.
Thank you for this website.

Surnames researching in Co Tyrone FUNSTON, BROWN
Comments:
ANDREW BROWN was born about 1846, at Tattykeel, Tyrone, Northern Ireland and migrated to NSW, Australia in 1862. His parents JAMES BROWN and JANE FUNSTON (Mary Jane) were recorded in The Church of Ireland Marriage Licence Bonds, Diocese of Clogher in 1832. The marriage may have been at Kilskeery, and Jane could have lived at Ballyard, but at present no proof.

We have no further information about this family in Ireland and as Andrew was born 14 years into the marriage, would no doubt have siblings. If anyone has come across them during their research please contact me, it would be most appreciated. Thanking you, Jennifer

I do know that they came to America from County Tyrone in 1826 on the ship Whitby and that they had young children with them. They sailed out of Londerry to Philadelphia. I also know that Thomas and J.B. Arbudkle followed them to our area of Pennsylvania in a year or so. If anyone has connectiong information, I would certainly enjoy sharing information.

My great-grandfather, Robert Stewart, was born at Tattykeel Townland in Kildress Parish on 24 December 1841. His father was William Stewart who had married a Nancy Hunter on 24 January 1813. No information on hand for brothers or sisters. That's as far back as I can get and all I know. Can anyone help me get back further?

My great-grandfather, Robert Stewart, married Mary jane Purvis, at the Arboe Church in 25 October 1859. He left for Glasgow the next year and never returned. .
Best regards,
Bill Stewart

Married Bridget Boyle from Donegal in St Mary's RC Chapel, Plumbridge, Co Tyrone in August 1890. His residence is listed as Leardin, Co Tyrone. His father is named on the marriage certificate as James Mulholland and Thomas Mulholland and Catherine Fox were witnesses. If anyone has any information as to who his parent/brother/sisters were please email me. I have not been able to locate a birth certificate that matches. I have found a possible birth cert that lists the mother as Anne Mulholland (Skeboy) and no father listed. Any help would be much appreciated. S Mulholland (email salmulholland@mac.com).

Researching Thomas and Jane (Miller) Carson. The couple immigrated from Ireland about 1830. Ships record for the Ship Adeline lists a Thomas, Jane and Eliza Cassin(Carson) going from Liverpool to Philadelphia in 1831. I believe this is the family I'm looking for. Thomas Carson is said to be from Dungannon, Tyrone Co., Ireland born about 1802. He is found in Philadelphia with an Oliver Carson (born 1799 and from Aughnacloy.) I believe the two are brothers or cousins. Oliver Carson arrived in Philadelphia in 1818 on the Ship Conestoga.

Enjoyed stopping by your website. I'll be coming to Ireland in April and would love to know what area my gggrandfather Martin McGary came from. Records show he came to the U.S. in 1834, at the age of 34. He lived the last decades of his life in Mississippi, USA. He was older when he had children so not much was remembered about him through the generations. Thank you!

Having been enrolled there 1960-1969, and been an educationalist for the last 40 odd years in Australia where class, creed or intellectual, physical ability is a non starter, the Old Grey Mother has little to add to the educational debate other than charging a lot of people a lot of money for an ordinary education. I find it extraordinary that any report is always about those who make great academic progress. Little mention is made about the lesser academic pupils who have gone on to make excellent and profitable lives for themselves through sheer nous. I can name a few!

Unfortunately my surname "Black" was not among those listed as "researched". My ancestor James Black and his spouse Mary Latimer emigrated to Canada along with Sarah Black, John Black and Isabella Black in 1847 from Dungannon, Tyrone. We have traced the family from that time, but are interested in tracing it back from that time as well. It seems likely that the James listed in the Tithe book from 1823 is our ancestor or a close relative. Any other information on our family's history in Ireland would be very welcome. Thank you,

Would be great if someone could look through Orritor Church records for me circa 1790 - 1870. Know my William Glasgow wed Isabella Kennedy as have the certificate.

Williams father was James Glasgow a farmer in 1863 and Isabellas mum was Jane and fater was Thomas kennedy a weaver in 1863.

Isabella was born circa 1838 and William circa 1840 so parents born circa 1790- 1822 i would guess.

Surnames researching in Co Tyrone McCullough or McCulloch
Have you found any usful information I don't know yet.
Comments:
I am trying to find out more about my great Grandmother, Anna Eliza McCullough's family. She came to America about 1847 along with her Mother, Fanny McCullough and two of her sisters, Fannie & Hannah. Anna Eliza married my great Grandfather, John F. Smith, in Michigan on 4 Jul 1849. They had 2 sons who were born in Michigan before everyone, including all of the above mentioned McCulloughs, moved to Iowa.

Mary Ann McCulloch (?) another of Anna'z sisters had married a George Findley, also from Drummond, County Tyrone in Feb 1838. Instead of going to America, they had migrated to Australia in 1841.

What I need is to find out more about James McCullough, her Father, who died there in Ireland in 1838 at the age of 38. We think that James & Fanny McCullough had at least two more children, a son & a daughter, but, nothing to base this on.

If you know someone who might help me with my search for my "roots", please let them know that I need help!

Thank you,

Jim Steele, Sr.

Have you found any usful information yes
Comments:
In particular, I am trying to find a church in Strabane, and in general, I am trying to find out about any Bogles who lived in County Tyrone between 1715 and 1750. I found this paragraph in a book published in 1839:

"John Bogle, one of the family of Bogles Hole (originally "Hold"), near Glasgow, m. [married] Mary Graham, a sister or dau. [daughter] of the last Earl of Menteith, and during the Rebellion of 1715, having been obliged to leave Scotland on account of his religious opinions, settled in or near Strabane, in the co. Tyrone, Ireland. He acquired a small property called Ballycommon, or Balwaggie, half a mile from Strabane, and d. [died] there. The tombstone of himself and his wife is in the churchyard of Strabane."

Was there only one church in Strabane in 1839, when this book came out? Because the book says that this John Bogle and his wife were buried in THE churchyard of Strabane, not just A churchyard. If there was only one church in Strabane in 1839, which one was it? And is it still there? The church would have had to have been there since at least the 1700s, if he was buried there. I don't know if it would have been a Catholic or Protestant church; coming from Scotland, I would assume that John Bogle was a Presbyterian.

Also, I'm assuming that "Ballycommon" is just an error and that it's really "Ballycolman", which is just south of Strabane. Has anyone else ever seen a reference to a Ballycommon, or Balwaggie?

Anybody have any ideas as to the identity of this church? Thanks for your help, everyone!

This is some of the information I have which I'm using to find family out there

Our grandad Arthur was born on the 22nd September 1888 and was born and lived at 47 Craister Street,Stockton his dad was called Charles and he was a ship caulker, his mother was Elizabeth formerly Kelly I had her name as Kelley with two e's.
Our grandma was called Mary Jane she was born on the 12th August 1897 she was born and lived at 22 Dean Street, Stockton on Tees her dad was called Michael Tracey. Her mother was called Catherine formerly Carrol !!Michael was an iron puddler, on the certificate an X marked Catherine's signature now she could have just been uneducated or it could be the rumour of a tinker, I hope to find out.Her surname could be spelt wrong if she couldn't read or write
Arthur was the youngest child of six.He also had 2 half siblings from his dads first marriage.
Charles McSorley was one of 4 boys and his parents came from Kilskeery, Tyrone, two went to America and so there is family out there now !!
As I didn't know Catherine Traceys maiden name until now, I haven't got any news of her yet.Michael Tracey came from Ireland, but settled in Consett, Durham.

Surnames researching in Co Tyrone Birney
Comments:
Do you know anything about the family of these brothers who came to the US in the first five years of the 19th century? Do you know if Margaret Birney Campbell, their sister, remained in County Tyrone and do you have any information on her descendants?

SEE INFORMATION BELOW:

Welcome to the BIRNEY FAMILY PAGE. My branch of the Birney Family came over from County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. They left from the Port of Londonderry in the summer of 1801. Hugh Birney came over from Ireland with two of his brothers, William and Robert. They landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The eldest brother John came over with his wife and children in 1804. The reason why we think John did not come over with his brothers is because his wife was with child at the time. We know that their father John Sr. was still alive when the three brothers left in 1801, it is possible that he stayed behind to take care of their father. We do not know if their mother was alive when they left. The sister Isabella (Margaret) stayed behind in Northern Ireland, and married a Robert Campbell, and had two sons. We think that the family lived around Fivemiletown, Northern Ireland, but are not sure. Hugh Birney Stated in a letter before he died that he was born and raised in County Tyrone, Ireland.
I am not the only person researching the John Birney Sr. family. The information on the descendents of John Birney Sr. has been gathered over the years, by many people researching the Birney Line.

I would greatly appreciate any information regarding Rachel Monteith's parents, she was born around 1755 in Tyrone Co., Ireland. She was married to William Cuthbertson, DOB 3/17/1740. They were married in Tyrone Co. in January, 1772. They left Ireland for America on the Roebuck in May, 1773, arriving in Wilmington, Delaware in August 1773. They stayed some time in Pennsylvania. Then they were moved by Rachel's uncle Nathaniel Monteith to Rachel's mother's home in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina (there is no reference to Rachel's mother or father's name). They stayed some time with her mother then moved to the Eastern part of the county, probably Union Co. NC. The following Monteiths are buried at Hopewell Church Cemetery (Hopewell Church is located in the Northwestern part of the county near River Bend:

Alexander Monteith - died 11/15/1775
Jane Monteith - died 02/27/1812
William Monteith - died 08/08/1824
Hannah Monteith - died 11/22/1844

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN1 MULHONE. He married BRIDGET HEANY 22 July 1841 in Lissan Parish Church near Cookstown Ireland., daughter of John Heaney.

Notes

John Mulhone married Bridget Heany on 22 July 1841 in Lissan RC church. The first names of their fathers are not given. The witness to the marriage was Cecelia McElhone. Incidentally John and Bridget were 2nd cousins and had to have a dispensation from Dr Crolly the then Archbishop of Armagh.They were 2nd cousins. On the comments section on the marriage cert it said Tintagh. Tintagh is a townland in Derry, parish of Lissan. Tintagh is adjacent to Knockadoo It appears after this couple got married, they moved from the area.

John Mulhone/McElhone was recorded as Mulhone -so were his children.

Children of John Mulhone and Bridget Heany are:

i. INFANT JAMES2 MULHONE, b. 20 April 1842, Kildress Parish, Corkhill Townland Tyrone Ireland.

ii. ROSY MULHONE, b. 20 December 1843.

I am trying to find information on my family. The information I have is this: They lived in the Cookstown area.
James Glassey married Annie Hamilton. I do not know the exact amount of children born to them but was told that there were at least 4 sons. The only name I know for sure was a son born in 1843 named James Glassey. James emigrated in 1867 (according the the US Census) He was a Protestant. He was a shoemaker. He was married in 1870 in Philadelphia to Mary Jane Martin who he supposedly met on the ship from Northern Ireland. They dropped the "y" and made the name Glasse in Philadelphia. James and Mary Jane had 8 children all born in Philadelphia.

who emigrated from Tyrone county, Ireland to America in the year 1789.

They were accompanied by my grandfather Arthur and grand mother Catharine Taggert,

with two uncles of the latter name, and settled in the county of Berkly, Virginia,

and shortly there after removed to the county of Mason, Kentucky; from thence

they removed to the central portion of the latter named state, what is now known

as Braken county, and where the county seat, Brooksville, now sands;

at which place the subject of this sketch was born on the first day of May, 1800,

consequently will be 75 years on the first of May, 1875. When in my eleventh year

my father and family removed to Pendleton County, near the county-seat, Falmouth.

My grand mother still remained with him , she, save one son, being the only survivor

of her family, and when she died; in 1825, was 118 years old. In 1820 my father died,

leaving his third wife a widow, by whom he had three children, two of whom now live in Missouri.

Any information on either of these families would be so helpful. Thank you in advance.

Looking for information on Joseph and Eliza Hyde who with many others sailed on Carrisbrook Castle to NZ in June 1876 as part of Vesey Stewart's KatiKati settlement. They had 9 children, most born in Ceylon while he serving with Royal Artillery, He retired from Royal Artillery and transferred to Tyrone Artillery Malitia in 1868. We believe 3 children, Emily (1868), Ada (1869) and Gertrude (1871) all born in or around Dungannon, possibly Ballygawley where most Carrisbrook Castle passengers came from.

Any information about this family or Malitia greatfully received.

Hoping to find information/vital records for Mullaghfurtherland area. Alexander ORR and Agnes STUART were married circa 1839, probably Presbyterian. Daughter Isabella born 1840. The family emigrated in 1846 and family tradition has it that three children died of cholera either on board ship or when the family reached New York City. They made their way to Canada and settled in Milton, Ontario, not far from Toronto.

Agnes Stuart had a brother John who was still living in Furtherland when she died in Canada circa 1900. According to her obituary, brother John was living on the family property. Any information would be welcomed.

What I am trying to find out is where my grandfather's brother is buried. My mom and I believe he is buried in the cemetery at Carland Presbyterian Church in the County of Tyrone but we are not sure. My grandfather's brother's name is Nelson Irwin and he died on March 11, 1983. The Kemtons were very good friends of my Great Uncle Nelson. We do know that his best friend William John Kemton is buried at Coolhill Cemetery in Dungannon. The thought has crossed our mind that maybe my Great Uncle Nelson is buried there.

This would been of on the what was then as The National Trail which started in Baltimore Md. to Ft. Pitt on the Ohio River I hope that is some worthwhile information for your search. Also there would of possibly been a William Goodfellow or Thomas Goodfellow that would the senior member of the family . He was probably been the father . Appericate any info. that is possible .

I am researching the family of Samuel Bogle and Sarah McCrea who lived in the Townland of Loughneas, Parish of Leckpatrick, County Tyrone. They had at least 5 sons and 1 daughter - James,John,Joseph,Samuel, Walter and Sarah (Mrs. John Entrican). I believe that James and John remained in Ireland. I know that Joseph emigrated to Canada in 1842 and Samuel and Walter may have gone to the United States of America.
Joseph was born in 1795 and married Mary Forster.
Any additional information would be appreciated.

I am seeking information on the decendants of JOSEPH HILL born aound 1800. Joseph had ten children:
ANDREW
JAMES
DAVID
FRANCIS
SAMUEL
JOSEPH
COLLINS
JANE
RACHEL
SARAH ANN

Almost all the males lived in BOSTON MA. US, Andrew,Frances David,Joseph and Collins died there. James was there at some stage but died in Co.Tyrone. The family were fairly well off many of them owning businesses. James was said to have had a bakery in POMEROY.
Rachel married unknown McKeown, Jane married William Mckeown and may have emmigrated to Australia. Sarah Ann married Joe Hamilton.
All Joseph's children were born between 1820 and 1855. I'm sure they must still have decendants living in Co.Tyrone. I would love to hear from anyone who has any information on this family.

I am searching for any information on Mary Donnelly born about 1836 in Pomeroy. She married John Rafferty do not know what year. They had 4 sons that I know of John born 1873, James born 1879. Bernard born 1882 and michael born1885. I think all were born in Moneymore. I know they went to england about 1885. They lived in Consett co Durham. I believe at that time 1885 Mray was a widow. She (Mary) was my great great grandmother. Any one with any information at all please contact me . I would be most appreciative.

Thank you June.

Comments:
I have been told my Bleakley family came from Murley Cross Roads, County Tyrone. Does anyone know where this is?

John Bleakley (1788-1869) arrived in the US in 1819. He had a son James Bleakley (1820-1883) and they lived in Venango Co., PA. I have been told that John had a brother named Joseph who came to America as well. I have an extensive family tree of the Bleakley descendants in the US that I am willing to share.

Alot of work! Thanks! You have birth info on Mary Anne Donaghy that the Dublin Registrar doesn't. North Ireland-why doesn't Belfast have the records? Dublin seems to be coming up with the records. Your map ref's, please, where are the maps? Can't find where townlands of Farsnagh & Lesush are. In Ardboe parish, yes, but can't find on maps.
Thanks again.

I am searching for John Rafferty who married Mary Donnelly(may have different spelling). They had 4 sons John, Michael , Bernard, and James. I believe they were all born in Cookstown co, Tyrone. Then moved to Lanchester in England . Not sure what year however they do appear on the 1901 Census. Although accroding to the census Mary was a widow. So her husband must have died before 1901.

Searching for John McMenamin born Co. Tyrone (place name sounding like Karman) abt. 1835 - father James mother Margaret (this is listed on immigration papers). Married Alice Hazzard (born Dunhill, Waterford 1834 to James and Mary)in Philadelphia abt. 1857. Two children were born in New Jersey, Mary Ellen 1860 and James 1862. The family travelled back to Ireland and their next child, William John, was born in Tyrone 1863. The family arrived in Sydney, Australia aboard th Queen of the East in April 1864. There was also a Margaret McMenamin, aged 12 yrs. travelling. John's sister Hanna was living in Sydney at this time (also an uncle who's name I cannot decipher). What caught my attention was the amount of McQuaid's listed in the area. My g.grandfather, John's son, listed John's parents as Hugh McMenamin and Mary McQuade on his death certificate but I don't know whose names he was remembering - maybe g.grandparents or an uncle!!

I am decended from Alexander's from Fawney near Donemanagh and am checking to see if these Alexander's are connected to us as has been stated. My Alexander went to Australia with two sisters. Charles visited my Great great aunt in Melbourne.

There is a picture shown of Carnteel Parish Church which is described as having been destroyed during the wars of 1841/2 I believe this date should be 1641 which was the date of the uprising when the Scottish settlers were massacred by the native Irish. I was reared in the townland of Glencull, Aughnacloy which is close to Carnteel and emigrated to England when still a child. I have been back living in Co. Dublin for 30 years now and am very interested in the history of the Aughnacloy area but am having difficulties getting information about it. I would like to get in touch with any people who have researched the history of this area with a view to co-operating with them in publishing a history of it before I pass on to greener pastures in the sky. I am involved in local history in the town where I now live and produce, print and publish booklets on local history. If anyone reads this who is interested I would be grateful to hear from them. My details are as follows;

Surnames researching in Co Tyrone DEVLIN / HENRY
Comments:
I am researching the ancestors of our John Devlin, b. in 1821 to Patrick Devlin and Bridget Henry. We have conflicting birthplace information for John: Londonderry, Derry, Kerry, and Caven.

In a biography of John, Patrick Devlin was a tenant farmer and a shoemaker in 1841. John Devlin lived on the farm until age 20 when he left for Scotland. After one year in Scotland, he came to America. Landed in Baltimore, MD, lived in St. Louis, MO and then settled in Guttenberg, Iowa.

John Devlin married Margaret Monaghan (b. abt 1819 in Scotland or Ireland, conflicting info) in Baltimore. They had 7 children, 4 survived: John and Mary Ann, both born in St. Louis; Louis and William, both born in Guttenberg, Iowa.

They lived in Guttenberg, Iowa until about 1892, when the farm was sold. John continued to live in Guttenberg until his death in 1897. Descendants lived in Missouri and Wisconsin and Illinois for the next generation.

Our line descends from William, who died as a young man in 1898. They had 7 children: Della, John, Amelia, Roy, Ernest, Henry, and Myrtle. William's wife, Lucy Mae Tindell of Wisconsin, remarried to a John Simmons. She died in 1949.

Any informaton on the ancestors or descendents of Patrick Devlin and Bridget Henry would be a huge help.

I am looking to find a record of my gg grandparents, Robert and Margaret (Black) Black. I am told that they were both born in County Tyrone, but that their families were not related. Robert was born c. 1797 and Margaret c. 1800. They were married in Ireland, and came to the U.S. c. 1820. They lived in Philadelphia for about 10 years before moving to Pittsburgh, where they spent the rest of their lives. They had 10 children, all born here in the U.S. Any idea of how to start researching this couple would be appreciated!
