Hello and welcome to my Home Page :-)
I am reseaching my ggggrandparents from Inishkeel, Co. Donegal, Ireland: James I and Catherine (McCormick) McBrearty.
Their two children were James II and Ann. They left Ireland about 1818/1819. Ann married William Titus in Nova Scoita.
James II left Ireland with his wife Sarah Gallagher, and their six children including a set of twins, Patrick and William. James petitioned His Excellency General George Stracy Smith, Lieutenant Governor and Commander in Chief in and over the Province of New Brunswick for a tract of land of 300 acres in Springfield on the Eastern side of the road leading from bay of Billish to the Washia_Moar. He was awarded the tract of land and lived there until he died in March, 1827.
His son James III left Springfield and traveled along the St. John River to Allagash, ME. There he married Catherine Henderson. They had 10 children. He then married Mary Walker and they had six children, one of which was my grandfather, Thomas McBreairty.
If anyone has information about any of these surnames: MCBREARTY, MCCORMICK OR TITUS, I would appreciate very much hearing from you. You can contact me by e-mail. Thank you.
