I am trying to tracefamily connectionS for a Miss Barnwellborn about 1780 and who married my GGGrandfather Henry Lyons about 1800 (plus or minus 10/15 yrs for all dates.
He livedaround Omagh in NW Co Tyrone in Northern Ireland. They had 10 CHILDREN, most of whom stayed locally but several went to America. They were farmers, possibly of Huguenot stock, but established there for several generations.
Miss Barnwell had a brother who was a wealthy Doctor, and who did not marry. In leaving his estate to his sister (and possibly other sisters) he helped the family purchase farms for the sons.
Any information will be acknowledged.
