Searching for information on McCouns, who emigrated from County Donegal but llived in County Tyrone some time prior to 1739. Francis McCoun married Margaret Patterson, daughter of John Patterson and Agnes Moffett of County Tyrone, and his father was Malcolm McCown. I believe they were related to Clan Colquhoun members who colonized County Tyrone at "Crosh House" beginning in 1620. Most of these Colquhouns emigrated to Maryland under the name Calhoun, but it is believed the McCouns represented the Colquhoun clan in the Borden Grant, Virginia, c. 1740. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Can exchange what I know of McCowns in Virginia.
