Query:

My g-g-great grandparents John P. (b. March 19, 1817) & Mary (McCANN) (b. December 26, 1823)McGOLDRICK immigrated from Co. Tyrone in 1847 to New Brunswick, Canada. Their first son (I think) was Owen, b. 1845 (or 46) and died July 3, 1845 (or 46). in Co. Tyrone. I would like to be able to find where he is buried to see if there is more information available about the family. After a time in St. John, New Brunswick they settled in a small community named Enniskillen where there were other McGOLDRICK and McCANN families already settled, the eldest couple being Patrick and Rose (CORRIGAN) McCANN, also from Co. Tyrone. I assume there was some relationship. Also, there may have been a Co. Fermanagh connection as it was common for the Irish to name their new home after their old and I know Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh is near the border of Co. Tyrone. Also, a cousin recently visited Ireland on a business trip and someone told him about a place named BallyMcGoldrick, but he didn't have time to follow the lead. I know there is no place in Co. Tyrone that is currently named that but I would like some tips on how to find out the names of the towns around 1847. I would be appreciative of any information. Also, I have pictures of John P. and Mary McGOLDRICK if anyone would like a photo copy to see if there is any resemblence to families they are researching.

I am searching for ancestors of John "The Rock" Johnston, m. Jane JORDAN in May, 1840. She was Tattinbar, Co. Fermanagh, but I have reason to believe that he was from Co. Tyrone. In doing reserach at the FHC here in Mesa, I found several JOHNSTONS listed in the following places: Thomas - AUGHALUN, John - AUGHNACLOY, THOMAS - Ardmore, Robert - BOYHILL and James - LITTLEMOUNT. All are, I believe, locations in Tyrone. If anyone knows anything about exactly where these locations would be, or if they have anything at all on the JOHNSTONs of Tyrone, please contact me. Although several other Johnstons were mentioned in and around the area of the Aghavea/Aghalurcher Parishes, family naming patterns indicate that one of these 4 Johnstons is probably the father and/or brother of my ggg-grandfather John Johnston.

Query:

My family comes mostly from County Tyrone. My great, great grandfather, Hugh MCCAFFREY and my great, great Grandmom, Susan MCDERMOTT lease a white sod farm house in the parish of Beltany outside of Clogher. They had 9 children. Hugh Alphonsus McCaffrey came to America to Omaha Nebraska and eventually brought his brothers, Owen, John and Joseph there, too. He left behind his single sister Ann who could read English, but not write it to care for his parents. He had 4 other sibblings. I do not know their names or what became of them. We think Ann lived until the 30's on the land. I have traced the progengy of the 4 brothers here which is about 1000 people from one end of the USA to the other. I would like to know if there are any McCaffrey's related to us in Clogher today? Is the sod farm house still there? When did Ann die and where is she buried. Hugh Alphonsus or Hugh, Jr. as he was known later married Mary KELLY from Monaghan in County Monaghan about 1870 and they took a 2 week honeymoon in Dublin, never to return to Ireland again. His son Hugh, known as Alphy married Nora Conway, who's grandparents Joseph CONWAY and Bridget MCCULLAGH were from Omagh in County Tyrone. I know that there are McCullagh's there around as my brother Michael visited them about 15-20 years ago, but I don't know what has become of them today. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated. Someday, my dream is to visit County Tyrone and see where my Great Grandfather came from. Thanks ever so much in advance

Query:

I am searching the Walker line for Robert Walker who married Ann Montgomery. Robert's father was probably Reverend George Walker, one of the heroes of the Siege of Londonderry in 1689. Robert was also at the seige with some of his siblings. He may have come to the USA around 1736 as part of the king's "Retainers" and settled in North Carolina. He died about ten years after arriving in the Americas. I desire further information to more fully lock this Robert together with George Walker. I am riding on speculation at this time. Thanks! Bob
