I am searching for info on my great, great, great grandparents, Cornelius and Anne (McHenry) McDevitt.This is the info I have on them so far:
He was born in Ireland in 1814, she was born in Ireland in 1818.They married in PA. in 1839 and moved to Mobile, Alabama and then to Mississippi.Their children were as follows:
John Andrew b. (AL) 1840 Cornelius Peter b. (AL) 1843 Mary E. b. (MS) 1845 Joseph D. b. (MS) 1847 Margaret E. b. (MS) 1849 Catherine E. b. (MS) 1853
I would love any info that anyone might have as to what counties in Ireland they originally came from.I have been told that he maybe came from Tyrone and she from Antrim....but Donegal has also been mentioned.I have a copy of a letter that Cornelius Sr. wrote from Mississippi to his son in Alabama.Cornelius Sr. was a school teacher.
I would also love to have info on Cornelius and Anne's parents if anyone has any info.
I am making a trip to Ireland next year and want to visit the counties that my ancestors came from.
I will be glad to share the copy of the letter with anyone who is connected with my family.
