I am searching for a Matthew McDermott. I know almost nothing about him. In the mid to late 1870's he apparently married Ade Yockey in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, USA. He had a son James Paul McDermott born in Armstrong County in the 1870's who died in 1943. his son was also James Paul McDermott Nov 15, 1910 to dec 29, 1960. He was born in Armstrong Co. and died in Troy, Ohio.

I am still looking for this Grestx5 Uncle's family! I have the Irish root of Michael's family, but need the US information after 1847.Because only one son came with the family group, I hope to find someone with a long line of 'Michael' first names still seeking the US line back to Ireland! Help.
Micheal McDermott
Born Jan. 1803 Ballykilcline, Kilglass parish, Co. Roscommon, Ireland.
Married before 1831 “Ellen ?” Ballykilcline, Kilglass parish, Co. Roscommon.
Left on the ‘Metoka’ 1847 for New York City.
Children (all born in Ballykilcline and sail with family to US 1847):
Michael, born 1831
Betty, born 1833
Maria, born 1835
Ellen, born 1837
Anne, born 1839.
Later son's first names that may show up in your known next US generation should be Thomas,John,Hugh,or Bernard.

McDermottroe Info

Hi all 

I found the marriage record of my ggrandfather James McDermottroe (c. 1850) and Margaret Breheny m. 9/14/1874 in the parish of Geevagh 
on LDS database. I received info from the County Sligo Heritage Society, that James parents were John McDermottroe and Margaret Conry from Cloghmine.
Margaret Breheny's parents were Bernard Breheny and Mary Coen address listed as Curry. 

I'm not sure where Curry is, I saw several listed on the Townland database.

Apparently, Margaret and James had another son, that I didn't know about, who must have stayed in Ireland or died before they immigrated to the US in 1896.
His name was Bernard McDermottroe baptized 11/20/1876.

As usual any help would be appreciated!

A Historic Day

Amongst the various promising political moves made yesterday, generally accepted in Ireland as the most Historic day since the founding of the State, was a change in articles 2 and 3 of the Irish Constitution.

The new Article 2, which replaces our divisive claim to the entire territory of the island of Ireland, reads as follows: 

"It is the entitlement and birthright of every person born in the island of Ireland, which includes its islands and seas, to be part of the Irish nation. That is also the entitlement of all persons otherwise qualified in accordance with law to be citizens of Ireland. Furthermore, the Irish nation cherishes its special affinity with people of Irish ancestry living abroad who share its cultural identity and heritage."

We of the MacDermot Clan Association here in Ireland hope to play our part, in relation to the last sentence, by our work for the Clan Association and its Website.

Hi! hoping that someone can help me connect my wife's McDermott ancestors. only info that we have so far is: William McDermott
(b.+-1860 in Pennsylvania) married Mary Mooney in +-1890; listed in the 1910 census in Larksville, Luzerne County,
Pennsylvania; both of Williams parents are listed as being born in Ireland, but i have no other info on them. William and Mary's
children were Mamie, Lala, William (b.1892), Edward (b.1893), Joseph (b.1895), Vincent Joseph (b.11/16/1897) and Bernadette

A family search

I have an ancestor Mary McDermott who, according to a story my grandmother used to tell, came to NY from Ireland alone around 1840 at about the age of 16. She was born around 1824. Her fathers name was James - listed on her death certificate as Jas. The story continues to tell how she worked caring for the children of a wealthy couple until she met and married my ggg grandfather Silas Woodland who had come over from Scotland. They bought and settled on some land in Lockport, NY and later moved to Ingham Twp, Ingham Co. Mich. I don't know where in Ireland she came from or any other info about her, but continue banging my head against this brickwall :)

New York/Ontario McDermotts

I am not giving up yet! I am still looking for McDermotts in either the Lewiston area of New York or in Ontario whose ggrandparents came to Ontario in the 1840s,50s,60s via New York and from somewhere in Ireland.

My gggrandfather Andrew Lawrence McDermott was allegedly born in Lewiston NY in December 1838 and died in December 1875 in Port Hope Ontario. (These dates are on his gravestone - so I assume my gggramma knew something about him). By then he had fathered Josephine, another girl and my ggrandfather Archibald Charles Henry or Artie. My gggrandmother was Susannah McCormick, born in the USA of parents from Fermanagh. Andrew died young, on a train, and may have been a conductor.

I know that there was a New York connection because all the wood and supplies for the house came by barge from New York from a relative's lumber yard.

Does this ring a bell with anyone ? Your critical analysis welcome. I don't know Andrew's parents names, and have checked church records etc in Ontario but have no baptisms before my ggrandfathers to find anything else out. Help !

The one from Louisiana married a Hettie SMITH, daughter of Ozane SMITH, also of WFP, Louisiana. My Dr. Charles m. Elizabeth SNAITH in Jamaica.

mac dermottroes

Unfortunately, I don't have any certificates from the MacDermottroe side of the family in Ireland.
I've been waiting for Census information to be put online so I can locate them. I haven't sent any requests 
for certificates because I'm not sure if they were from Sligo or Roscommon counties. I do have an initial 
search request that I sent to the County Sligo Historical Society (Aras Redden) a few months ago. I was hoping he would be 
able to pinpoint their townland. It's possible they were in the parish of Kilmactranny based on another relative's recollections. 

To further complicate things my grandfather, Michael Joseph, also married a Breheny (Kate, b. 1887) in the U.S. I do have her birth 
certificate from Ireland. Her family lived in Moytirra and later Highwood. However, I don't think they knew each other in
Ireland and my mother says they were from different townlands. Kate's mother and father were John and Bridget Breheny.

This genealogy stuff is kind of like reinventing the wheel!
I'll let you know if I get any more info. 
Thanks, Steve.

Dear Steve
May of the names of your ancestors appear in
my grandfather Thomas |Mc Dermottroe's 
family line. It would help if I had a townland for your ancestors
Do you have place of birth for your grandfather in Ireland in 1878
all births deaths and marriages were registered after 1-1-1864
You should have no problem finding them as the children 
were all born after this date in Ireland. Check with County Roscommon Registrar
There was a Breheny(your great grandmother's name) and a Mac Dermottroe drowned
in Lough Key in the early 1800 according to 
a local song I heard in Roscommon. I would also check marriage registrar in
Boyle for Brehony, Mac Dermottroe marriage around 1876-78 before your grandfather was born
. They will search 5 year around a date for fixed fee'

I would be interested in any info you have on McDermottroe's.
My great grandfather was James McDermottroe married to 
Margaret Breheny (b. 1852 - d. 12/27/1928 in US). They
had six children: Michael Joseph (b. 1878) (my grandfather) 
Mary Kate (b. 1881)
James J. (b. 1883)
Patrick (b. 1884)
John Matthew (b. 1888)
Madeline (Delia) (b. 1889)

James (the elder) apparantly died in Ireland and Margaret
immigrated to the U.S. in 1896 with the six children. 

Any help would be appreciated. 
Thanks, Steve.

Review of MacDermot Gathering

We are in the process of gathering information for the Review

We need your photographs in order to enable us to select the
very best.

We would also like to ask you to put pen to paper and either
compose a piece about a particular event or write your own
review of the Gathering. It could be humorous, serious, a poem:
whatever you feel appropriate.

Let us have your copy by 15th November.

Jamaican McDermotts

Dear Conor,
I just discovered this page about a week ago and posted my query to it. At this point, I do not know who the parents of my Dr. Charles Henry M(a)cDermot(t) were nor do I know of any siblings. Ms. Maureen Humphries has provided me with a clue that I am trying to follow up on: He may be the son of Patrick (son of Guilaume from County Down, Ireland) and brother of Capt. Edward O. from the West Feliciana Parish of Louisiana and Chicot County, Arkansas. That Charles married Hettie SMAITH - close enough to SNAITH to warrant further investigation. So far, in Jamaica, I haven't found any mention of ROE being connected to this Dr. Charles. Does Guilaume of County Down fit into the ROE line?

Is your Dr Charles McDermott the Charles ("a young man" in 1807) son of Charles whose brother was Francis, and younger half-brother Peter.?
He can't be the Dr. Charles MacDermot Roe, son of Dr. Matthew, as the dates are wrong. Perhaps a son or grandson?
You dont mention whether you've seen the relevant passages in my father's book, MacDermot of Moylurg (see pages 339 - 346)

1999 Clan Gathering

Our sincere thanks to all those who attended the recent
Gathering in Boyle. We hope that you all enjoyed yourselves
and that you made many new friends. We certainly did. We look
forward to seeing you back in Boyle for the next Clan Gathering
in 2002.

A permanent record of the 1999 Gathering will be prepared soon
for the Website. Should any of you be inclined to put pen to
paper we would love to include your personal account of the
Gathering in the review.

Photographs are most welcome.

If anyone recorded the Gathering on Video we would love to
receive a copy too.

Furthermore we will undertake a revamp of the Web Site, specifically the
Home Page, Notice Board and Shop.

The Home Page will be simplified with fewer headings.

The Notice Board will be upgraded with a threaded message system
for more efficient use.

The Shop (as well as other facilities which require payment) 
will be credit card enabled to allow ease of payment. More items
will be added (T shirts/baseball caps/pins/badges etc).

A new statement regarding the purpose and function of our Clan
will also shortly appear.

Thank you all for making the 1999 MacDermot Gathering such a
huge success. Without you it would not have been possible.

With all our very best wishes for the future

It has been a week already and we wish we were back there getting ready for the March of the Clans. I would love to be a fly on the wall at any of the O'Donell clans' homes who attended the reinactment. What words they must be saying!!! I must say the pride that swelled in me as we were marching in was a feeling I will not soon forget. My apologies to Father(er I mean Connor)for making him apart of the priesthood and also that weird question about the "rats".

McDermott-Uncle Sam's reunions

Dear Jean,
I am positive we are closely related. I don't have my whole
family list with me at work but I do have your father's name
on my list as a child of Michael McDermott. Your father was
the 7th child of Florence Mary Knappand Michael and 
Michael's 10th child [first wife Anna Marble]. My husband
is George, son of Fred Knapp McDermott [9th child of 
Florence]. I don't have much more info than you have stated. 
Roger McDermott Briggs [son of Olive] gave me a picture of
Michael McDermott and thought that Michael had a sister in
PA named Olive. Roger also thought his father might know
more but I haven't received more info.
I live in DC and have checked some of the census records for
PA and have checked the Civil War records but to date, I 
haven't found him listed.

There is another family member who was working on the line,
a child through Anna Marble but I haven't heard from him
in some time. 
I am positive we have met at Uncle Sam's during one of the
reunions. Your mother, if I remember correctly, came in a
recreation vehicle and was ill with cancer. 
I know this is long but I have looked for so long for a
new lead. Perhaps together we can find one. 
In addition to Michael's picture, I have many others of
the children of Michael and some notes from Tracey McDermott
son of Tracey McDermott.
I also have lots of notes on the Knapps if you are interested.
If you would like to share notes, I am at

My Willima came to the USA about 1844-45 and we are not able to trace his parents. Could your Michael M'c Dernot be a connection for me???? Donald McLean

"McDermott" from 'down-under' (New Zealand)

I am so very interested in hearing from anyone regarding 'our family'. Also must add, I am glueless as to any names past that of my GrandMother, who was Annie McDermott. Having also just begun my search, I do know that the McDermott's were one of the first "Familys" to immigrate to the new colony New Zealand some 100 years ago. Even a 'tit-bit' would be greatly appreciated, "ThankYou"

Michael McDermott (MacDermott,M'cDermott, MacDermot)

I had always assumed that I had the correct spelling for my
McDermott ancestors. I was at my mothers house and she 
pulled out her information on our McDermotts.My great-aunt
had years before at the Library of Congress Copied a history 
of the McDermotts.At the bottom of this history is the 
following written by her (Marie Mcdermott Babcock).

"I can remember that papa always wrote his name M'cDermott.
I always believed that grandpa used the a in Mac and after 
awhile it was dropped but the ' was used between the M and 

this maybe why I have never been able to trace my family 
back further than Michael McDermott. Michael was my g-g-
grandfather and is the grandpa referred to in the above 
quote. Michael married Margaret McLaughlin (McGlaughlin)
in Strokestown December 28, 1843. Michael and Margaret are
believed to be from Lissonuffy near Strokestown, Co. 
Roscommon. Can anyone make a connection to Michael or
Margaret using these new spellings MacDermott,M'cDermott,

Search for great grandparents

I have been searching for information about James P.
McDermott, who married Mary Ann Moran and had four children,
Frances, Helen, Anna, and Elmer. The latter two were
baptized in 1884 and 1888 in Pittston, PA. The 1920 census
indicates that Elmer's parents were born in PA. However,
there is no other information in any official records about
James or Mary Ann McDermott. If anyone knows of any 
information about these people, we would greatly apprciate

Lookalikes/Grosse Isle, Quebec

Ann, I agree that there should be some pictures. I saw a picture of Dermot MacDermot
in the wonderful tome "MacDermot of Moylurg", who looks a lot like my now
deceased great-uncle Bernard Michael McDermott or "Uncle Bert" who
lived in England and died in 1979.

Re Grosse Isle: Following is a list of McDermotts who died at sea or in 
Ann aged 10 on the ship Naomi which embarked on 06/15 of 1847
Ellen aged 1 on the ship Sir Rob. Peel, 07/26 of 1847
Hannah aged 2 on the ship Naomi as above
James aged 26 on the ship Larch from Sligo, 07/11/1847
John aged 1 on the Tamarac from LPool, 05/26/1847
Mary aged 37 on the Naomi as above
Patrick aged 21 on the Lotus, 04/15/1847
Peter, aged 35, on the Larch as above
Thomas, aged 43, on the Naomi

Here are some who died on Grosse Isle and are buried there:
Catherine on the Ganges, aged 35, August 15, 1847
Ellen on the Naomi, aged 7, August 8, 1847
Honora, on the Free Trader, aged 70, August 15, 1847
Michael, on the Naomi, age 16, Sept.5, 1847

The 1850 Census

Use the 1850 fed. census in both Ohio and PA to see if a Patrick and Sarah or a Martin and Bridget McDermott has a baby on the census records named Michael. Also, check for a 1855 State of Ohio and/or PA State Census roll for the 2 families looking for the child Micheal, age 4 in a group.You are so close to making the jump to Irish records and really do need this information. Good luck.

Research on Michael McDermott

I am tryng to research my family line and have had very little success. If anyone could help me I would be greatful.
My grandfather is George McDermott born 27 April 1907 in Windburn, PA died 25 Dec. 1966 in Youngstown Oh. His father was Michael C. McDermott who was born around 1851 in either Pa or NY he died on 19 July 1913 in Blossburg, Pa and is buried in Arbon Cemetary Pa. 
Michael was married twice first to Anna Marble who died 27 Sept 1896 and then to Florence Mary Knapp. He had a total of 12 children. 
I have mixed information regarding his parents, His marriage license to Knapp lists parents as Patrick and Sarah McDermott but his death record lists Bridget O'Connor and Martin McDermott. The 1900 Census shows his parents as being born in Ireland and the 1910 shows they were born in Pa. Can anyone help? Please e-mail at jbsmrs@aol.com

Hello Webmaster,
Have you thought about having a place for pictures of McDermotts with note of the name and state and/or country of residence? On a visit to Ireland I went around a corner in Birr and literally bumped into a woman. We grabbed each others' arms and simultaneously began apologies. It was a good thing she was holding on to me...I nearly fainted. The lady was a dead ringer for my aunt Tess McDermott who had died several years earlier. And the lady's name was McDermott. 
It would be nice to see how alike and how different we are.
All the best

Looking for Information and McDermott relatives

My Great Grandpa was Arthur Ray Ragan of Sumter (Americas) Georgia. He married s woman by the name of Maggie Smith and they had 3 children (that we know of). Walter Roy Ragan, William Arthur Ragan and Clifford Ray Ragan (my Grandpa). Clifford Ray was born on December 24, 1892. We are not sure how far back the Ragans go in the USA. Tradition has it that Arthur Ray Ragan and Maggie Smith (Ragan) both emigrated to the USA sometime in the early/mid 1800's. 

On the other side of the family, Elizabeth White from Ireland (she reportedly lived sometime
during the 1700's) married a man with the last name of Shields. Their daughter Cecelia Shields married a man by the name of Dennis McDermott (both Cecelia dn Dennis were reportedly from Killarney in Ireland). Family tradition has it that they came to the US during the potato famine and settled in Baltimore, Maryland. They had 5 children: Joseph McDermott, Elizabeth McDermott, Leo McDermott (a fireman), Paul McDermott (a Catholic priest) and Dennis John McDermott (a lawyer and my Great Grandfather His law partner was Fred Richter in Norfolk Virginia). We have a photo of him in the YMCA Law Class in 1915. Dennis John McDermott married a woman originally from Spain by the name of Marie Magdalena DeCastille G. Leaming of Cape May New Jersey (born in 1879). Marie De Castille was adopted by the Leaming family. She was baptized on April 16, 1898 and had first Communion on Sept. 18, 1898. She died on March 4, 1932 at 8:15 pm. Dennis John died on Oct 28, 1929 at 4:25 am. He had been a resident of Norfolk for 35 years (since 1894). 

Maria and Dennis were married in Philadelphia, PA. They had 7 children. Marie Eleanor born August 10, 1901, Elizabeth Celestine born May 19, 1903, John Dennis (also known as Jack) born Dec 23, 1908, Cecelia Gertrude born September 7, 1912, Charles Peter born August 30, 1918, Hugh Vincent born December 11, 1913 and Marguerite born Oct 27, 1905 (My Grandmother). Marguerite McDermott married Clifford Ray Ragan in the early 1930's. They had 2 children Stephen Paul (my Father, born June 25, 1936 and Dennis John (July 28, 1935). Jack McDermott was in the Navy and died during WWII on September 6, 1944. He's supposedly buried in Saipan. Clifford Ray Ragan died on Jan 31, 1949.

I am looking for any information on them (USA and Ireland), along with any relatives I have checked many ship passenger lists and have found nothing definitive so far. I would love to find out what ships they traveled on and dates they arrived in the USA, along with any cemetery or other information. Tradition has it that both sides of the family fought during the Civil War.

Any information you have would be helpful.

Kilglass parish family #2

All dates are based on 1847 ship list:
Mary (?) Mcdermott, widow age 44, husband possible 'John'.
John, 13
This family was from the same location as my first message, Ballykilcline, Kilglass Parish,Co. Roscommon. They left on the same ship, 'Metoka'. May have lived with the Michael and Ellen McDermott family once landed in NY for a time. The children of each family may have set off to 'see America' together also by the US Federal Census of 1850. The clue may be found in your records as a 'family relationship unknown' for a McDermott girl or boy. Another McDermott family (my line) landed the same month in NY. To see that family check the Family tree under Roscommon found on this site. 25 related McDermott's all from the same Townland, all landed within a month of each other and all from the same Townland in Co. Roscommon. Now, that is a rare find in family research! I have farm plot maps from 1836 for this group of 3 families, if they match your American side line. I have almost no information as to where they went or who they married after landing.

Patrick McDermott, County Mayo

Looking for information on my paternal great grandfather, Patrick McDermott, b abt 1855, reportedly in County Mayo, parish unknown. Father's name was Thomas. Namings patterns, from 1878 to date, suggest that siblings of Patrick likely named John, Thomas Joseph, James, Ellen, Alice, Catherine, Margaret and Mary.Griffith's Index identifies likely candidate families in Charlestown, Lavy Beg and Lavy More. Patrick left for Liverpool, England prior to 1878. He married Margaret Melling McGarry, on September 8, 1878, at St. Oswald's RC Church, Old Swan, West Derby, England. Patrick died in August 1924, at St Joseph's Home for the Sick and Aged (Little Sisters of the Poor), in Walton-on-Hill, West Derby, Lancs, England. If anyone is searching for similar naming patterns, or can tell me where Lavy Beg and Lavy More are on today's maps, please e-mail back. Thanks.

Link found !

Dear Nan

Whilst we have no information regarding the activities of
Patrick we can link him to the "Main Branch" of the MacDermot

Patrick's father Thomas b.1803 Co. Sligo was descended from 
Brian MacDermot of Lissaseeny, Barony of Coolavin, Co. Sligo. 
Brian d.1746 was the youngest of three brothers, the eldest
of whom was Charles, Prince of Coolavin. Charles is the
ggggg grandfather of the current Prince of Coolavin, Niall.

You are therefore directly descended from the MacDermots of Moylurg.
Our common ancestor is the father of both Charles and Brian,
Hugh, Prince of Coolavin, Captain in Jacobite Army, d.1707.
Hugh's great great grandfather Rory d.1568 was the last MacDermot
to be called King of Moylurg.

All information relating to this notice is to be found in 
"MacDermot of Moylurg" by Dermot MacDermot, Prince of Coolavin,
which can be previewed (and ordered) elsewhere on this

Kind Regards

McDermotts, McDermotts Roe, O'Connors

Whilst reviewing the February Notice Board I happened upon
your entry regarding tracing your McDermott line back to John
of Scregg and Drumlion. 

Some further information relating to MacDermots Roe. Not only
did Matthew MacDermot Roe M.D. seek refuge at Ballinvilla, owned by
James MacDermot, but he married his daughter. Their son Charles M.D.
emigrated to Jamaica and founded a line which now stretches to
Canada and New York (including Galt MacDermot, the composer).

Matthew's older brother John was the convert to Protestantism, which helped
to preserve the lands.

The youngest brother Charles married Eleanor O'Conor. Charles' eldest son
also Charles whose Grandson John (born in Ireland) died in New York
in 1906, having been married to a Margaretta Cherry.

Hope some of this is new to you.

Best regards

Rory MacDermot

PS have you searched for Scregg in our Notice Board search engine ?
You should come up with a couple of other researchers who
might be able to help.

McDearmon family

Dear Mrs Sutton

My mother's family are also McDearmons and descend form Michael McDearma Row who was listed as a headright of John Nash in Amelia county Virginia 20 Sep 1745. He first appears in the Amelia County Order Book 1 p.6 on 13 Feb 1735 as Michael McDearman Row. His Amelia will was proved in 1765 and names three sons Dudley, Brian, James and a daughter Judith and wife Katherine. Dudley and Brian McDearmonroe fought in the French and Indian War, and James died in the Revolution. Dudley McDearmon's descendants moved south to North Carolina and beyond. Some of Brian's family remained in Virginia, others moved to Missouri and eventually California; still others to Tennessee (nineteenth century Congressman James C. McDearmon).

I hope this helps. I think Michael McDearmonroe (d.1765)was a MacDermott Roe of Roscommen, perhaps with a father Dudley.

Yours, Peter Witt

Dear George

It would be very likely, if not a sure certainty, that if your
McDermott antecedents hail from Riverstown, then you may assume
with confidence that they were descended from MacDermots of Moylurg.

May I suggest that you bring as much information with you and allow
as much time as possible, as it could be quite a long search ! But at
least you have dates, names and places which should make your task
that bit easier.

If you wish to investigate on your own, here is the website: http://istg.rootsweb.com/1800/index.html. Goodluck!

Diarmet - IRISH?

I have been researching what I thought was a French surname, D'YARMETT in its present incarnation. One of your clan suggested that some of the earlier spellings (DIARMET, DEYARMIT, etc.) might be variations of McDERMOTT. Specifically I am looking for Daniel DEYARMIT, b ca 1795; native of Ireland and subject of the King of the UK of Great Britain and Ireland; emmigrated to America prior to June, 1812. Have not located his departure point or point of entry. He migrated to Ohio, USA, spending time in both Guernsey and Muskingum Counties; m Elizabeth Umstott 1819, had 9 children. He was a shoemaker. Naturalized 1829. Any information or suggestions would be appreciated.

McDermotts in Co. Leitrim

You say you live in Co Leitrim. Our family history says "Mark McDermott b 1810 was an oversear on the estate of Lady McNamara before emmigrating with wife Mary McDermott (same maiden name) and daughter Bridget, in 1852."
Is there any such estate or castle today to search estate records?

Dermot boy Hanly for him" under the 'porprietors names anno: 1641'. Question please! Was some of the Kilglass parish lands owned by Bryen mc. Dermot or was Bryen mc.

Thomas McDermott, Scranton PA??

6 years ago I gave up on tracing my roots, but today I happened to look at this notice board and thought I'd give it a try. My great gradfater, Thomas McDermott, was born in Scranton in 1865. I believe his parents were born in Ireland, but am unable to locate any further information.
His father's name may have been Thomas. However, I received information from the Lackawanna Historical Society, and there is a P.D. McDermott listed in the 1870 census. It lists him as having 8 children, four of whose names were Thomas, Mary Jane, Joseph and Anna. Any leads on tracking down the parents of Thomas McDermott would be greatly appreciated. See in all at the 1999 Clan Gathering!

Mc Dermotts, Mc Dermotts Roe, O'Connor's

I have traced my ancestry back to John McDermott in Scregg and Drumlion townlands in Killukin parish through the Tithe Applotment books. I am still trying to verify the Mc Dermott Roe connection to the Mc Dermotts via the family oral history that the Roe was dropped . I am looking for land or other records which might show a connection to Matthew McDermott Roe who married an Eleanor O'Connor.Because Matthew was dispossesed by a brother who changed religions, I believe Matthew may have sought refuge in lands owned by James McDermott near his residence at Ballinvilla, to wit Scregg and Drumlion, since James McDermott, Matthew's contemporary, was married to Eleanor O'Connor's sister Anne. In other words his sister in laws husband found them a place to live. ( a guess) This being in the time frame 1765-1790. We know that Eleanor and Matthew had 3 children Charles, Henry,and Mary. I believe Charles was either John McDermott's father or grandfather and Matthew either John's Grandfather or great grandfather. It is possible that the Roe was dropped due to
insult or disdain.
Any ideas on records to search.1765-1835.

He left his widow Susannah McCormick, children Josephine, Lillian, William and Arthur. Family tradition has it that he was born in Lewiston, New York. His family must have had some means as we have a diamond ring from that era in Ireland, and not many of those travelling to North America brought this kind of ring with them. Any ideas anyone ?

I am looking for information on Bridget McDermott, born Jan. 25, 1836 in Ireland. Her parents were Theodore McDermott and Anne McGrath. I do not know when she came to the USA, but she was here by 1865 for the birth of her only child,
Harry J. Summers. Bridget was married to James J. Summers, also born in Ireland. James and Bridget settled in Phila. PA. Bridget died July 5, 1914, and is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon, PA, in a plot owned by her brother Thomas McDermott who died in 1909 (wife's name Mary). If anyone is from this line of McDermott's, please contact me at my email address. Thank you so very much.

IL Death Index McDermott 1916-1938

I put the following death index from IL McDermott surname only (1916-1938)to a file for anyone researching IL McDermotts.
Gives name, date of death, city and death certificate number. If interested pls email me. Illinois death certificates provided
me with a lot of info, ie., parents names, place of origin, if person was in military or married, how long in US, cemetery
and person who notified health authorities (usually a next of kin).

GGrandparents, Mark and Mary McDermott

This statement is recorded in my family history:
"Mark McDermott was born in County Leitrim, Ireland, in 1810. He was employed as an overseer on the estate of Lady McNamara. He married Mary McDermott, who was not related despite the same name. When their oldest child, Bridgett, was 2 years old, they came to the United States and settled in Dubuque, Iowa. Eventually, they moved to a farm in Cherokee Co, Iowa."
We have complete listing of off spring of that marriage, but want to go back to Ireland and know more. Can anyone help?
