The McDermotts of Ontario, Canada Updated August 9, 2001
About Our Family Research
Around 1823, John, Neil, James, Mary and Jane McDermott came to Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada from Donegal, Ireland. Neil and John bought land and farmed in Tecumseth Twp. near Bond Head. John married Mary Margaret Moore while Neil married Jane Milligan. These two ancestors have given many McDermotts to provide me with material to research. Mary, Jane and James are more difficult to follow, although I am sure they contributed to the population as well.
At this time I am searching for the Irish connection. The ancestors I am familiar with were Protestant (Methodist) when they settled in Ontario. I am trying to find the location in Donegal, Ireland they came from and perhaps trace further relations there.
