Seeing information concerning gg-grandmother Annie McQuilkin, born, per a Civil War Pension affidavit in Ballycastle on March 14, 1833. Emmigrated to America c. 1857 and settled in and around Newtown, Bucks County, PA.
Followed (or possibly accompanied) by a sister Margaret, born c. April 10, 1852 (per 1921 death cert.).
Circumstantial U.S.-based evidence also suggests a brother, Patrick McQuilkin, born c. 1826 (per 1907 death cert.) or February 1837 (U. S. 1900 Census). Patrick was married, possibly in Antrim, to a Mary McBride.
Parentage is unconfirmed. Death certificate of Margaret lists Patrick and Margaret (nee Hamilton) McQuilkin. Anna's records Patrick and Anna McQuilkin. Possibly same father different mothers.Patrick's death certificate has no parents listed.
Battle's History of Bucks County lists Anna's father as J. P. Wilkinson of Ireland, but because this book was also an advertising gimic the name McQuilkin was most likely anglicized to Wilkinson.
