Does anyone know if the James Agnew of Tobergill (late 1700s) was related to the James Agnew who was a tailor at Pottinger's Entry in Belfast (1819 Belfast Directory)? John Rea was also a tailor there in 1824. Could John be related to Jane Agnew & John Rea who lived in Tobergill?
I believe my gt grandfather was related to the Agnew-Adair bunch. He was John Agnew born 1818/1819 in Co. Antrim. He was apprenticed to a tailor but I do not with whom or where. He lived in close proximity to the Reas who migrated and lived in Upstate N.Y. His first son was named Samuel John, his first daughter was Margaret Helen and his sister married a Gettys from Co. Antrim.
