red mail SMITHs,Before 1775,Moneymore,Ireland
Family oral history: James and son,Samuel left Moneymore(there are 5 villages with this name)and came to America landing in Philadelphia,PA. The date is not clear but probably sometime before 1755. It could have been as early as 1722. At that time James's brother,John cane with him. There could have been other family members but I do not know. It is said that they lived in Philadelphia for time. Factual: We do know that Samuel SMITH and two younger brothers,Andrew and James were living Mount Joy Township in York County before part of it became Adams County. Samuel SMITH bought a farm while still in York County. He bought it in 1779. In 1781 he married a widow, Sarah Porter McCreary and they had two sons,Jamesb.1784 and William b. 1787. Sarah also had children from her first marriage. Samuel died in 1816 and Sarah in 1827. In her last years she lived with her son,James who had received the farm bought in 1779. William died at about age 23. All family members were buried in Mount Joy Township,Adams County,PA. in the Pine Bank Cemetery. I am not searching for James Smith the signer of the Declration of Independance whose father name is most likely John. It is possible that James,signer, may be a cousin. MaryLee

red mail Ellen O'Neil & Michael Doherty
I am trying to research my Doherty / Docherty / Dougherty / Dockerty family back to Ireland. The furthest I have got back is Michael Docherty born ca. 1810 in Ireland, and died after 1856. He married Ellen O'Neill, born ca. 1810 in Ireland. The couple had one known child, Edward Docherty, born ca. 1831. Michael and Ellen's birth dates are calculated based on Edwards probable birth year. If he was their firstborn (unlikely as his first born child was named Michael) then they probably were born around 1810, if he was their last then Ellen could have been born around 1785-1790 with Michael possibly as far back as 1780. Edward Docherty married on 17th Apr. 1856 Elizabeth Campbell, in Hutchestown, Glasgow City, Lanark Scotland. Eliza. Campbell was born ca. 1831 in Donegal, Ireland, to parents Patrick Campbell and Madge McGrath, both of whom were dead before their child's marriage in 1856. Edward Docherty and Eliza. Campbell had 4 known children all born in Scotland. These were: Michael born 1857; William born 1860; Mary born 1862; Patrick 1866-1902. Edward and Elizabeth lived in Springburn Glasgow until ca. 1865 when they moved to Jarrow, South Shields, Durham, England. Edward was a chemical labourer in St Rollox chemical works in Glasgow and transferred to England when Tennants built another site at South Shields. According to the English 1891 census (living at 68 Station Lane, Hebburn) Edward was from Derry and Elizabeth was from Donegal. This is the only information I have locating their origins in Ireland. All other census records state they are from Ireland, with the earliest census I have being the Scottish 1861 census when they were living in Springburn, Glasgow. If anyone has any information or family links to this line then I would be really grateful to hear from you. I am really hoping that I can find where exactly this family branch came from in Ireland. I have done extensive research on the family name and once I get a location for this branch in Ireland I am confident I can take this much further. Many thanks, Paul

Annie came to western NY about 1868, with her husband William Thomas Keith. Hartford Dixson Nelson born about 1854, came to US before age 18yrs. He became a lawyer and State Senator in Albany NY, residing in Oneonta NY. Sara Nelson married Hugh Gunn, resided Long Island NY Death certificates lists their parents as Alexander Nelson and Olivia Dixson. They were both supposedly born in Londonderry Ireland. In 1902, Annie Keith visited Ireland, returning to America, she states the place she visited in Ireland was Antrim. I have found much of the family in NY but cannot seem to get a tie to Ireland. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

I am seeking details of the family of Abraham McNeill and his wife Mary Armstrong who are buried in Kilrea. They had children John, James, Thomas, Eliza Jane, Margaret, Joseph and Archibald. They came from the area around Moyknock /Eden.

Thomas Sloan and Margaret were married in Kilrea. Thomas died before 1855 Abraham died before1849 and Mary died 18 mar 1854.
