I live in Chicago and was born and raised in Michigan.My parents still live in Michigan, and we are descendents of Patrick & Jane (McDonald) McElgunn of Saginaw - and we think he is from Gubb, Fermanagh (S. of Enniskillen and Lisnaskea).(She, Jane, is from Glengarry Ontario).Patrick is my great great grandfather, moving to Saginaw MI in 1858 (?) w/ his parents and possibly brothers/sisters?
I believe Patrick is from one of two lines you speak of - his father was Hugh McElgunn and mother was Mary Atwell both of Fermanagh of 1810's (?)
I count some 20 + direct cousins aunts/uncles in Wisconsin and Michigan, and dozens more of indirect across the US (MN, CA, TX, FL).Recently had a second cousin become a new mother and who gave her son the middle name of McElgunn!The name is rare but our connections are strong.Have been to Fermanagh (Enniskillen & Lisnaskea myself some 10 years ago out of college).
