"Looking for Descendents of Anna Hill, Donegal, Ireland" Updated December 29, 2000
About Our Family Research
My name is Deborah J. Atwell, nee Brinkworth. In the mid 1800's Johnathan Brinkworth married Anna Hill, of County Cork Ireland. They settled in Chippenham, in Wiltshire County, England. I am trying to trace my Irish roots. I know that we are also related to the family of Collins in England.
The Brinkworth's had a child named Thomas Brinkworth who immigrated to America in the late 1800's. He went to Louisville, KY, and obtained a job at the Louisville River Port Authority. He attended the University of Lexington, before it became the University of Kentucky. He was a free mason, and a Professor of English at the University of Kentucky, as well.
He married and had children and one of them settled in Mitchell, Indiana, and was a farmer.
I would really love to find my Irish ancestors. If anyone has any information about any of my living relatives, please notify me. I would love to hear from them.
