Hi McCreadys, I was just looking around in the internet to see if I could find any family history...
I have a partial genealogy prepared by my (late) father and great aunt.I'm not quite certain of its accuracy, perhaps you can help fill in the blanks...it contains no dates prior to 1824.
In it I find a great-great grandmother of mine is Elizabeth McCord (b. 21/Dec/1824) daughter of George McCord and ?, 5th child and son of James McCord and Margaret Stuart.
I have other sons and daughters of James McCord and Margaret Stuart listed as: Jane McCord (m. Hugh McClintock) Martha McCord (m. ? Montgomery) John McCord Susan McCord (m. ? Duffy) and then George McCord (m. ?).
Then I have George McCord's daughter listed as: Elizabeth McCord (b. 21/Dec/1824) m. 15/Apr/1842 to William W. McCready (b. 27/Jun/1817). their children: James A. McCready (b. 19/Feb/1843) George A. McCready (b. 26/Sep/1844) D.W.S. McCready (b. 23/Mar/1845) Warren A. McCready Francis E. McCready Samuel D. McCready John C. McCready William Herbert McCready - my great-grandfather a railroad engineer who painted landscapes as a hobby.
I believe they were from the Pennsylvania area as William Herbert McCready was from western Pennsylvania. His son, Kenneth, my grandfather, a CPA and lay Methodist minister, lived in Youngstown, Ohio.
Let me know if you have any info or if you need more from me. Thanks,
