In the report section linked below, I have placed my KEARNS Family Tree from my father (Vincent F. KEARNS II) back.
I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who had relatives in the nearby areas of Aghalee and Aghagallon N. Ireland prior to 1850.Some of the towns nearby :
The best that I can determine,James emmigrated from Ire. to Dundee, Scotland between 1830-1850.
Likewise, if you have information on the following (related) names for N. Ireland and Scotland ... it would be helpful.
SMITH - Scotland or Ireland
McINTYRE - Ireland
RYOTT - Scotland
McQUILLAN - Scotland
KIRK - Ireland
BROGAN - Scotland
I'll update as I get more...but... it's sure is getting hard !!!!
