    1. [IRISH-SCOTS] Campbells and Brownlees, from Scotland to Ireland
    2. Pat Connors
    3. I have three ancestors whose families emigrated to Ireland from Scotland, the Fox/Todds, the Campbells and the Brownlees. In my last post to the list, I talked about my Brownlee family so now I am going mention my Campbells who are first found in County Armagh.  Unlike the Brownlees, they were Catholic. George Campbell, my gr grandfather, was born in 1849 in Columkille, Derrylard, County Armagh, he was Catholic.  He emigrated to Troy NY and at least one sister emigrated to Australia. George's parents were his father, also George b 1822 in Ireland and his mother Mary Fox/Todd (Fox is English for Todd, both names used in Ireland) b ca 1822 in Ireland. I have no idea where they were originally from in Scotland.  As I said in my Brownlee post, my recent DNA found some that relate to Glasgow.  I am thinking that since the Brownlees settled in Co Down that maybe they are the Glasgow family, however, my opinion is not based on any proof.  I am looking for ideas from any who my have some Irish/Scottish research. -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    2. Maisie Egger via
    3. For those with Irish blood coursing through their veins: From Sigma Xi SmartBriefs Top Story Whole-DNA study traces origins of the Irish Ancient people from the Middle East and what's now Eastern Europe are the early ancestors of the Irish, according to a whole-genome analysis. Scientists used DNA from a 5,000-year-old woman found near Belfast and a trio of men between 3,000 and 4,000 years old buried on an offshore Irish island. "It is clear that this project has demonstrated what a powerful tool ancient DNA analysis can provide in answering questions which have long perplexed academics regarding the origins of the Irish," said Eileen Murphy, co-author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    1. [IRISH-SCOTS] Loughrey, James, John and Owen in Upper Rooskey, Parish of Raphoe 1833-1901
    2. Marie Vanlaeys
    3. Is anyone searching for the Loughrey family of Castlefin?  I found on the Griffith's Valuation that at least two of these families John and Owen Loughrey had ties to Scotland.  I was looking for information on James as I believe him to be the father of Bernard Loughrey living in the same house that James Loughrey was living in in 1857 cottage #22 Bernard Loughrey occupied in 1901. In some old records many of the folks in Roosky seem to have come from a place then called Laught.  I cannot locate it on current maps.  All input would be welcome.

    3. Elwyn. Thank you for your help.  I have managed to have a look at 1901 &1911 census for Castlefin and found house #13 occupied by John McGlynn with 7 in his family, property was owned by John Loughrey living in Scotland.  House #14 occupied by Sarah Gallagher. ( I am wondering if this was Bernard's daughter who married after his death.)   In 1901 House #21 was rented out by Charles Loughery living in Scotland son of Owen Loughrey who died 1888. My grt grandmother (Birdie Loughrey) daughter of Bernard Loughrey and Margaret McCaffrey born abt 1857 in Castlefin married John Vincent McGlynn in Philadelphia Pa abt 1877 in Saint Ann's Parish.
