After the famine of 1847 around the early to mid '50's it seems many if not most of the Campbell’s seemed to have left the area.My Campbell’s left the Cootehill, Cavan area as a group in or around 1851/1854 time frame.
Below you will find a listing of those from my known family that fled to Brooklyn, New York.
I would love to hear from other "Campbell's" and associated families that fled around the same time from Cootehill and/or Cavan Co., Ire. If we start working together, we may come up with more then we think.
All the below were born in the Drumgoon, Cavan, Ireland area. Most in Cootehill. Most are also buried in Evergreens Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York.Any further information would be appreciated.
