- Descendants of Bernard "Barney" McQuaid (19 KB)
Barney McQuaid immigrated from Ireland to America about 1850. He landed in Boston, Massachusetts and may have lived in Lowell, Massachusetts, where he worked as a laborer. His wife, Bridget Starr, came to America a year or two later with her brother, Tom Starr, for a reported "arranged marriage" with Barney (1861?). Barney and Bridget traveled by ship around the Cape to San Francisco about 1861 and settled in Mokelumne Hill, Calavaras Co., California, where he worked as a gold miner. About 1870 they moved to Leadville, Lake County, Colorado, where he again worked as a miner in Tom Starr's gold mine (the richest in California Gulch). Thereafter, they homesteaded land on the banks of the Arkansas River just south of Buena Vista, Chaffee Co., Colorado, where they farmed and raised dairy cattle. They had 8 children (2 died in infancy). They both died in Buena Vista and are buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetary, Buena Vista, Colorado.
- Descendants of Richard Middleton of Barbados (56 KB)
Richard Middleton, son of John Middleton, Sr. and wife Elizabeth, of Abbeville District SC, is suspected to be the father of Samuel Porter Middleton. In 1809 Richard sold land in SC he inherited from his father John to Sugar Bonds (brother-in-law?). The deed states he is a resident of Bedford Co., Tenn. and is signed by his wife Agness. I need to verify this suspected relationship.
- Descendants of Samuel Porter of Abbeville, SC (90 KB)
Samuel Porter (1763-1837) of Abbeville, SC, is suspected to be the namesake of my gr-gr-grandfather, Samuel Porter Middleton. This Samuel Porter is closely associated with the John and Elizabeth Middleton family of Abbeville. He was an executor of John's estate (1797), an executor (with John Middleton) of the estate of John's son-in-law, Theophilus Norwood (1789) and a witness to many legal documents of the Middleton family. His wife's name was Susannah. I believe she may have been John's daughter, Susannah. Need verification of this relationship.
