Am seeking info on the origins of ancestor Adam Crooke, b.(about) 1813,
County Donegal. Family lore has it Adam and his brother (as teenage
boys) signed on as stewards on trip to America, and were to have
returned, but instead jumped ship and made their fates in America. It
is not known the circumstances of their family, and why they would have
left, however both were known to work as stone masons, and constructed
foundations for houses in Lousiana, Mississippi, and Florida. A stone
wall in downtown Pensacola, Florida, where Adam settled still stands.
Adam and his brother were known to have been Catholic, however,
converted to Protestants here. Their parents, Adam claimed were
English, although he was known to have been Irish born. ANY parish
records from the time of his birth would be greatfully appreciated to
his extensive family. Reguards, Jane
This is my first posting to this list. I am researching the Andrew and
Mary Ann (NOBLE) WASSON family of Glenmaquin, and their ancestors and
Glenmaquin is a small community located near Raphoe and Letterkenny in
I've been told Andrew is likely the son of Robert and Mary Jane
(Kilgore) Wasson of Trentamucklagh, near St. Johnston. He is known to
have had a sister Mary who married twice, first to an Unknown LAIRD, and
then to Thomas MOORHEAD or MUIRHEAD.
Mary's children were Maggie, William James and Robert John Laird, then
Thomas, Mary Jane, Elizabeth or 'Lizzie', and Martha Moorhead or
Muirhead. They were born aprox. 1878 to 1895, but I don't have specific
Lizzie and Martha married their first cousins, brothers Jim and Matt
McLean. How were they related? Was there another Wasson sister who
married into the McLean family? Or were the McLeans on their father's
side of the family? Can someone help with this mystery?
Also there is a connection of some sort to the David Roulston family of
Co. Donegal that also remains a mystery. His son David lived next door
to Martha & Matt McLean many years later in Toronto, Canada.
My great-grandparents Andrew & Mary Ann (Noble) Wasson were flax farmers
and they had 9 children:
Mary Jane, b. 1878 m. Henry Johnston
Robert m. his cousin Mary Jane Muirhead
Samuel m. 'Jinny' Rebecca Jane Cowan
Alexander m. Rebecca Eaton (or Holmes?)
Elizabeth 'Lizzie' C. m. Charles Davis
James - nothing further known
Martha, b. 1888, m. Alexander Wallace Cromie
(these are my grandparents)
Rebecca m. James Roulston
Maggie, b. 1891, m. George Harvey.
I have been fortunate to make connections to the WASSON, NOBLE, CLARKE
and EATON families in the Glenmaquin area, and hope this posting will
result in more connections and further information.

Dear Listers / Subscribers,
I am currently researching my own family (CORR), and would of course greatly
appreciate any help ....
My Grandfather George Joseph CORR was born in Drumlish, Co Longford of George
CORR - a farmer of Co. Leitrim
(One of his brothers, Charles married Bridget Masterson, and settled in
Corglass, Co Longford; others John and Philip joined the Police (IRC) and
settled in Mayo)
He (George) joined the British Army - DONEGAL Royal Field Artillery in 1883 (for
the next 21 years), and was stationed in various locations, but spent c 10 years
based in Letterkenny garrison. He married my grandmother Teresa DALY on the 27th
September 1897 in the County of Mayo.
They had a number of children born in Letterkenny;
Honor Margaret (1898-1968) born in Ennis
Eliza Mary (1899-?)
Mary Veronica (1902-1903)
John, James (1903-1918)
Can anyone shed any further light on the CORRs of Letterkenny for me ?
I am also very interested in any details for an ANNIE CORR who died in
Letterkenny in April 1911, aged 41 years - who might indeed be my grandmother.

I have an ancestor Michael DUNAGAN (sometimes spelled DUNNIGAN, DUNNAGAN and
once DONEGAN) who first shows up in the 1830 census in Greene County, New
York, USA, married with two children. Based on this and other census, he
was born in Ireland in about 1804, and he married a lady from New York.
I have never found any record listing when he went to the USA or where he
was from, nor have I found any evidence that his parents went to America.
Thus, my best guess is he exited Ireland as a young man, and was probably in
New York 1820 to 1826. I have tried ships records into NY and other USA
ports without success.
Without a County or Town to start looking, is there any chance of locating
him in Ireland? Is the Dunagan name prevalent in Donegal?
This is my first attempt to trace roots in Ireland, I am not sure of
resources, so I could use some advice from those who have gone before me.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
I am researching my great grand parent's. The information I have so far
came from Drumhome area of Donegal. They had 3 sons Patrick born 1885, Thomas
born 1875 and Edward born 1881. How can I find out when they might have left
Ireland? Edward was born in Scotland in 1881 and they came to the USA some
time around 1889.
