Has anyone heard of the Ballad of George Ritchie? Does the name Pluck Bridge have any significance?

He then sailed from Belfast to America in the first ship that sailed after the conclusion of peace. The ship was called the Lazy Mary and landed in Philadelphia in 1783. David was sold for his passage to Edward Duvall, of Burlington County New Jersy for three years, during which he married a Miss Mary Land , who was born on sea of Welsh parents.

Comments:
My grandmother, Mary Ferguson, was b 26 Dec 1884, in the Aughnacloy area. I have no other data as to townland or parish. She may still have been in the area at time of 1901 census but without parish or townland a look up may not be possible.
Eventually she married Robert Boyle, reportedly from Enniskillen. Three children: Robert, Madge and my mother, Mary, born 8 June 1912.
Would appreciate hearing from anyone researching Ferguson from the Aughnacloy area.

Looking for my Great Great Grandmother's family. I beleive they lived in Co Tyrone in the 1800's. Diana Sealy Married Robert Martin sometime in the early 1800's, she died in 1835 and is buried in Londonderry Cathedral, together with one of her children, William who died in 1836 age 19.
Diana originally was from Kerry We Think and was related to the Herbert Family"Herbert", Robert was from Co. Wicklow, the son of Rev Robert Martin, a clergyman in Ballymoyer in the mid 1700's. Can anyone help? I think there is a strong possibility there was a family of both living together in the mid 1800's.

31 July 2002 - Greetings from London, Ontario, Canada.
Came upon this website while browsing for my Jeffs ancestors living in Derryoghill Townland, Clonfeacle Parish, Cty Tyrone, N.I. Paternal g-grandparents were Isaac Jeffs (abt1826-1880) and Ellen Jane McKenzie (abt1836-1871). There children were:- Sarah Ann; Isaac-b.1864; my grandfather - Samuel-b.05NOV1866, emigrated to Canada with a McKenzie uncle in 1883; John b.1869; and Ellen Jane b.1871. I would appreciate hearing from anyone that can provide additional information on the above family including their siblings, ancestors or descendants.

Persons interested in reading the 48 page document "The Jeffs Family in Ulster, Northern Ireland" compiled by John James "Jack" Jeffs (1912- ) of Cty Antrim, can do so by visiting my website at the following address:-

Comments:
I am looking for records for William MCQUAID & Mary O'NEILL and their children born in Ireland. I am also looking for records of the parents of Bishop Bernard John MCQUAID (b: ~1823 New York City, New York, USA) - Bernard John MCQUAID (b: ~1800) and Mary MCGUIRE (MACGUIRE)(b: ~1796). I am told they were from Tyrone- around Kilskeery, Donaghmore, Dromore, or Trillick. I searched some of the church records but their names were not found. I suspect that William MCQUAID and Bernard John MCQUAID are brothers, but have not been able to confirm this yet.

The children of William MCQUAID & Mary O'Neill include:
1. John MCQUAID/MCQUADE- b:~1837
2. Catherine MCQUAID/MCQUADE b:~1838
3. Joseph MCQUAID/MCQUADE b:~1840
4. Margaret MCQUAID/MCQUADE b: ~1841
5. Elizabeth MCQUAID/ MCQUADE b: 1846
6. William MCQUAID/ MCQUADE b: ~ March 17, 1852(Family notes show he was born in Ireland- but he may have been born in Canada- not yet confirmed)

There may have been other children born to this couple but these are the ones that immigrated with the family about 1850-1854.

He had a sister, Jane, who married Samuel Quigley in 1845. I don't know if they emigrated or not, but there are many Quigley's in the states. She was born in 1825.
Patrick and Mary were married 14 May 1822 in Lower Bodoney Parish and lived in Rouskey and Casorney/Casorna and Gortin virtually all their lives. I am not certain of when either of them died.

Joseph Black was born on Dec. 12, 1873, at Drumearn farm, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone. His father was also Joseph, a farmer, and his mother Margaret Galway. My grandmother was born Sarah Ferguson on July 01, 1873, at Mabuoy. Her father was William Ferguson, a gamekeeper, and her mother was Elisabeth Allen. Joseph and Sarah were married on Feb. 04, 1897, at the Macrory Memorial Church, Belfast. It was shortly after this that they left the family farm and moved to Kilbirnie where they had eight children Joe, Minnie, Maud, Lily, Cissie,Willie and Jim. Another girl, Elisabeth, died aged four. I know from old photos that in the early days there were frequent visits between the relatives of the two Drumearns.

Looking for assistance in locating the family of John GIVEN and Lydia GIVEN. John was born about 1840, Lydia about 1838. They both emmigrated to the United States about 1851. Lydia lists her birthplace as county Tyrone when she was married.

I am under the assumption that they are siblings. The connection between the two is based on John's son George Marshall GIVEN who was living with Lydia (GIVEN) Dickson in the 1900 Pennsylvania census and listed as her nephew.

I have been unable to locate their immigration records, and their first records in the states are without other family members (John is married in the 1860 census, Lydia is a servant in a separate household).

I am searching for information about Thomas McMenamin born about 1852 in County Tyrone. The only information I have is that he married Bridget Donnelly (b. County Fermanagh, daughter of Patrick Donnelly and Alice Ferry), on May 15, 1872 in Trillich, County Tyrone. I do know he emigrated to Glasgow shortly thereafter and then to Philadelphia, PA in the 1890's. I am searching for any information especially who his parents were.

My GG Grandfather died in New Zealand and was called Alexander Donoghue. We think his surname in Ireland was Donaghy. Father possibly William but that is a guess. He was born Cookstown, Tyrone about 1840. He came to New Zealand approx 1867 after a relative Michael Donoghue disvovered gold in Ross on the West Coast South Island of NZ. There is a place named Donoghue's after him. Michael apparently returned to Ireland. Alexander and Bernard did not as far as we know.There was also a Bernard Donoghue that was related to Alexander died in NZ as well and was sponsor to his children. Alexander married Catherine Gallagher in NZ she can out to NZ shortly after him and was born in Donegal. Apparently they knew each other in Ireland. A relative went to Ireland as a child and stayed with Corrigan cousins and visited Donaghy relatives in a two storey stone farmhouse in KillyCurragh. There is also a connection with a the surname Quinn and a hotel called the Temperance. Alex named his two sons Alexander Francis and Bernard James. There wee also several daughters.

Hoping someone can help me find him and his family.

Comments:
Most of the above families came originally from Scotland and lived in Northern Ireland, primarily Tyrone, for several generations. On a clear day, one wrote, it was possible to look across the water and see clothes flapping on the lines in Scotland. Exactly where is such a view found? They all emigrated to Pennsylvania by the mid-to-late 1700s and helped erect Presbyterian Meeting Houses every ten miles from Chester County to Washington County. Am seeking church and civil documents verifying their land ownership, dates, and any other extant data.

Surname(s) in Co Tyrone JOHNSTON,SHIELDS, McCOY
Location(s) unknown
Date(s) 1790's, 1832, early 1900's
Comments:
"Auld" Robert Johnston, b. ca.1767 (probably Scotland), came to Ireland ca. 1790's. Oral family history gives us Co. Tyrone. He married more than once, Hannah Shields being one wife who appears to have accompanied him to Upper Canada. All wives were Irish born.

Some (possibly all) of his children include:
James, b. 1798, m. Martha McCoy in Ireland
Margaret, b. ca. 1800
Alexander, b. 1804
John, b. ca. 1806
Robert "Red Robin", b. ca. 1808, m. Mary McQueen in
Upper Canada in 1833
David, b. 1814
Archibald, b. ca. 1815-16, m. Margaret Jane Gordon in
Upper Canada in 1837

All children were born in Ireland.

Francis "Frank" Johnston, b. ca. 1805 may also have been a sibling or a cousin/uncle. In Ireland he married Francis "Fanny" Hud an Irish born woman. They were in Upper Canada at least in 1832 as they took possession of a farm in N. Plantagenet Twp., Prescott Co. in that year.

James and his wife Martha had a son Archibald born in Upper Canada in 1833. Robert "Red Robin" married Mary McQueen in 1833. So, we have an established presence in Upper Canada for at least the year 1833 for some of the family, although they could have come over in 1832.

The family appears to have gone in different directions once in Canada. Red Robin and Archie bought adjacent farms in N. Plantagenet Twp., Prescott Co. close to the farm of Frank Johnston. "Auld" Robert and at least James' family appear to have gone to Huron County and show up in Ashfield Twp.; however, "Auld" Robert is buried in Ebenezer Cemetary on Gore Road just outside of Brampton (adjacent to Toronto just west) indicating a move sometime or an untimely death and they just buried him where he died. Margaret, John, David and Alexander have not been found as of yet, although we have a lead on a John Johnston possibly having gone to NY, PA and eventually OH in the States marrying Jane McClay, possibly in Quebec. This would dovetail neatly with some oral family history of one of the sons taking ill in Quebec, some of the family staying behind to nurse him to health, recovering, marrying, farming south of the St. Lawrence River in Lower Canada and eventually moving into the States; however, this is a "leap of faith" at this time and subject to much research/confirmation or denial.

If anything looks familiar I'd like to hear from you. I can be contacted direct at:

Looking for descendants of Michael McDonald and Mary Fox of Creggan, Co. Tyrone.

TOWNLAND: Creggan
CIVIL PARISH: Termonmaguirk
BARONY: Omagh East
COUNTY: Tyrone
ROMAN CATHOLIC PARISH: Termonmaguirk (today known as Carrickmore)

I am descended from John McDonald, the first child born to Michael McDonald and Mary Fox on 25 July 1872 in
Creggan, County Tyrone. Unfortunately, the Roman Catholic Parish Registry for Termonmaguirk, where they resided, has been lost for 1857-1881. Therefore, we do not know the exact date of marriage for the parents, the exact dates of baptism for the children, or the names of the godparents. Therefore, we also do not know the names of the parents of Michael McDonald and Mary Fox.

The children of Michael and Mary McDonald were:

John [25 July 1872 - 3 Jan 1912] married Margaret Kelly of Mullaghmore, County Sligo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1896 and had at least nine children; he was a fireman; he died of tuberculosis.

Margaret 2 Feb 1874

Terence [25 Feb 1876 - 20 Oct 1956] Arrived in Philadelphia on the "Waesland" July 19, 1896; a brakeman on the Pennsylvania Railroad; citizenship granted on 2 October 1905 in the Circuit Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; married Mary McMenamin (died 1944) of Ireland on 26 May 1910 at St. Francis Xavier Church at 2321 Green Street; owned a home at 3854 Folsom Street; had at least one child: a son, Terence, who died at two hours old; At the end of his life, he was living at 7700 Cedarbrook Avenue; remarried to Susan McMenamin between 1944 and 1950.

Rose 4 Nov 1877
in Philadelphia by Jan 1907, godmother to Rose, daughter of her brother John.

Peter 3 March 1880
in 1905, he lived at 201 N. 6th Street.

Catherine 20 Sept 1882

Edward 17 May 1885

I am hoping to find my ancestors in Tyrone. We are related to Bishop Bernard John MCQUAID of Rochester who was born in NYC about 1823. His parents, Mary McGuire and Barney MCQUAID were from Tyrone. My McQuaid clann settled in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Mary O'Neill b: 1812 and William McQuaid b: 1812 were married in Ireland and had 6 children they traveled with to Canada. John b: 1837, Catherine b: 1838, Elizabeth b: 1846, Margaret b: 1841, Joseph b: 1840, William b: March 17, 1852. We strongly suspect this family is from Tyrone as other MCQUAIDS that settled in Kingston, Ontario, Canada claimed they were of Owen McQuaid of Tyrone.

They came with their children SARAH b1821, WILLIAM b1822 Tyrone, ROBERT b1836 Tyrone, ISABELLA b1840, JANE, JOSEPH, EDWARD, JOHN, another son James migrated to Canada. Most married in Australia.

Robert's brother WILLIAM ARNOLD born Tyrone 1800, wife Isabella and daughter Rebecca b 1844 Tyrone migrated at the same time. (still tracing other children)

Robert & William's father was WILLIAM ARNOLD, mother MARY ADAMS and from a search of Victorian records I think that he too migrated to Australia but it is not yet confirmed.

Places of birth have been found from death & marriage certificates and gravestones but no parish is given. I also have a letter from James' son George wrtitten to the police in Victoria seeking information on his father's parents and siblings.

I have had no luck in tracing any more of the Canadian Arnolds.

To date i have been unable to discover anything about their lives in Ireland except that William Arnold gives his occupation as farmer on son Robert's 1857 marriage registration.

Most seemed to have worked n the land in central Victoria or operated a market garden in Melbourne.

Any information would be helpful.

GILLESPIE
James the father of Thomas Gillespie- From the Marriage register of Thomas and Anne Isabella Starrett Gillespie.

From Schedule G Registrar's District of Omagh #267
Marriages solemnized at Fintona in the Parish of Donacavey in the County of Tyrone.
5 April 1870 Thos Gillespey of Full Age, a Widower and Farmer from Lisnacrieve, Parish of Donacavey, son of James Gillespey a Farmer, married Anne Isabella Starret, of Full Age, a Spinster, of Froughmore, Parish of Donacavey , daughter of Chals Starrett, a Farmer. Married in the Pres Church according to the Form and Discipline of the Presbyterian Church by licence by me, Robert Chambers. Thomas signed by his mark and Anne by her hand. Witnessed by James O’Hara and William Gillespey.

Anna Maria Gillespie was registered as having been born 16 Aug 1875 In Lisnacrieve to Thomas and Anne Isabel Gillespie formerly Starrat on 25 Aug 1875. From Births registered in the District of Fintona in the Union of Omagh in the County of Tyrone. Wm Knight Supt Registrar

Margaret Gillispy was registered as having been born 13 Jan 1889 in Lisnacrieve to Thomas and Anne Isbella Gillispy formerly Starritt on 22 Jan 1889.From Births registered in the District of Fintona in the Union of Omagh in the County of Tyrone.Wm Knight Supt Registrar

William James Gillespie b 1 October 1883 in Fintona Co Tyrone to Thomas and Anne Isabella Gillespie. **

Thomas,40, Isa,35, Ann,10, Maggie,4, and Wm,2, Gillespy left Ireland from Moville on the SS Furnessia and arrived in NY on 19 Apr 1886. Note...spellings and ages are directly off the Ship Manifest.

Thomas Gillespie b Ireland 1822 from Newspaper clipping of the Obituary of his death .
Thomas Gillespie b Scotland from Death Certificate in Greeley Co Nebraska USA information provided by OS McIntyre
Thomas Gillespie b 1833 On the 1888 Homestead papers he said he was age 55.
Thomas Gillespie b 1813. from Headstone in Cemetery Wolbach, Greeley Co, Nebraska, USA
Thomas Gillespie b 1846 from age shown on 1886 SS Furnessia Manifest

We have no information on Thomas Gillespie’s mother, siblings, first wife, or children from his first marriage.

**There is no birth registry that we have as of yet been able to locate for William James Gillespie b 1 October 1883 in Fintona Co Tyrone to Thomas and Anne Isabella Gillespie. We do have personal knowledge that William James is their son.

Note: 1) 33 year disparagy in possible birth year. We do know he was much much older than Anne. 2) The number of yrs till birth of first child seems rather long for that period of time. Family story of 3 sons from Thomas’ previous marriage … maybe Anne had her hands full raising them…..no time for a family of her own 4) Thomas Gillespie land record on 1911 plat maps in Greeley Co Nebraska. We know that William Starrett was in the USA in 1873.

STARRETT
William the father of Charles Starret From the Marriage register of Charles Starret and his 2nd wife, Eliza Mooney.

Married in the Meeting-House according to the form and discipline of the Presbyterian Church by licence by you, Robert Chambers
Charles signed by his hand...Eliza with her mark. Witnessed by William Semple and James Gillespie.

Note: 1) Mary Robinson Starrett died sometime between the birth of her last child, Ellen, in 1859, and Charles’ second marriage to Eliza in 1861. 2) Where is she buried and who is her family? 3) Family story has it she died in Belfast of Scarlet Fever. 4) Family story also has it that Eliza Mooney Starrett went home…to her father’s home?…every night after she and Charles were married. 5) What happened to Eliza? 6) Charles Starrett Sr. died and was buried in Wolbach, Greeley Co, Nebraska USA. There is nothing to indicate that Eliza came with him. He lived with ?

I have further information on the Marjery Starrett & Mathew Brandon Family for which I will make a separate post.

And, I also have some sheets of births that I would be glad to provide for your postings, and should I ever get the ship manifest completed, I would be glad to share that with you, as well.

DEATH OF DANIEL GILLESPIE — One of Cornwall’s oldest and best known citizens passed away on Wednesday afternoon in the person of Mr. Daniel Gillespie. The deceased had reached the great age of 88 years, and enjoyed good health up to within a comparatively short time ago. he had a splendid constitution and during his whole life never suffered a day’s real sickness until that which commenced a few weeks ago, terminating in his death. He was a native of County Tyrone, Ireland, but came to this country when quite young, and for a period of 53 years he performed the duties of lockmaster on the Cornwall canal, retiring a few years ago on pension. Mr. Gillespie was of a bright and genial disposition, having a pleasant word for everybody, and his familiar presence and kindly salutation will be missed by the community. He was a life-long member of St. John’s Presbyterian church and in politics, was a staunch Conservative. he took great interest in public events although he never aspired to office.
He is survived by three sons and one daughter - Judge Andrew Gillespie, of Chicago, Ill.; Mr. David Gillespie, lockmaster on the Cornwall canal; Mr. Robert Gillespie, contractor, of Montreal; and Miss Sara Gillespie, at home. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Lockwood Austin, of Richmond, Ill.
The funeral will leave his late residence, Fourth Street, just East of Pitt Street on Saturday afternoon June 1st, at 2.30 o’clock, for Woodlawn Cemetery.
The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved family. —The Cornwall Standard, Cornwall ON, 31 May 1912

Comments:
Just found out my Great Grandparents names and that they were from Tyrone County. William Thomas Taylor (1855-1928) married to a Marianne or Minnie Simpson (1856-1922). He was a farmer and Land Bailiff. She was a teacher/music teacher. I have Drum-Grannon from a birth certificate of one of their daughters. On the certificate it is listed under 'abode' which I take to mean where they lived. Not sure if it is a town or the name of their farm. They had 5 children in Ireland, one died at childbirth...Robert (my Grandfather), William John, Ettie and Mary. They moved to England around 1887 and had 2 more children Lily and George, who a twin brother who died at childbirth.
Does anyone have these names in their line or know of other family members? I know William had 6 sisters....maybe with names of Jane, Lizzie and Annie. I do not know his parents names. I do not know Minnie's parents names or if she had siblings.
Thanks,
Karen

I was born in Dungannon in 1951. My mother was winifred simpson , I was fostered in 1952 . My brothers Harold , Lenoard, Noel were all fostered. Harold was fostered by a family is Seekinnoor , he died at eighteeen. My brother leonard was at the Royal school in Dungannon , he joined the british army and lost himself. Noel lives in Belfast.
Winifred had five sisters. I think the father owned a store in Fivemiletown. The family history is rather tragic
Winifred and Herbert Simpson ( possibility siblings were raised in the work house in Dungannon and then fostered out by two sisters who lived in Ballygawley. Both herbert and Winifred died in the last four years.
Herbert published his story , or part of it in a book called " Workhouses of the North West ".
I live in Canada. I would dearly love to know my mother's story. She told me she was put away in a mental hospital for four years for having children out side wed lock..
She was a warrior...when she came to Canada in 1997 she told me a little about her life...in relationship to be locked away....she said they called her a "menace " to society,,, she said those who put here away were all died and she was still alive.
She was brilliant , I only got to know her for a little while. I met her in 1990 when I returned to the north to walk 200 miles for peace. She was living in Dungannon and still riding her bicycle. When I asked if U.S.Grant ( Simpson ) was related she said they were the wealthy side of the family. I have a connection with his path related to the Souix Nation of Native People in America.
I have one second cousin living in the village of Moy.
His mother , my mother's sister drowned in a river, I think life was hard for them. I do not know their story but I would love to. When I met Winifred I took her to the children's home called Conneywarren , where I was placed and there on the wall was a picture of me as a little child. I was fostered in 1952 by the Boak-McGowan family in Ballyheather.
I have a exile profile in the Belfast Telegraph page and I got an email from my foster mother's descendant in America and she had a phototgraph of a little girl called Sheila taken in 1953..It was me in my foaster mother's arms. Isn't the internet incrediable. We can trace ourselves back into trees !!! I would love to find the Simpson history tree.

A James LENDRUM, farmer, was the father of my great-grandmother Isabella LENDRUM, who was of full-age and a needlewoman in Mallow Co Cork when she married Patrick COLLINS, parish clerk in the Church of Ireland there in 1851. No evidence has been found of a James Lendrum in that area but there was one in Fivemiletown, Co Tyrone with farm also in Fermanagh (if the same one).

Location(s) ARDSTRAW
Date(s) 1830+
Comments:
John LONG was a tenant of Robert EVANS at the time of Griffiths Valuation, in the townland of Ballyfolliard, parish of Ardstraw. John's wife was Nancy EVANS and Robert EVANS was a tenant of the Duke of Abercorn. Three LONG sons, born early 1830s came to NSW in 1856 per Vocalist and entered the Colonial Service (government employ) Remittance had been paid by an uncle, John Maxwell, already in the Colony. His wife was an EVANS and I assume he was actually an uncle by marriage. Family lore mentions also the townland of Tulldoortans, in the adjacent parish of Urney.
