About Our Family Research
A group of the McDermott family settled in Calloway and surrounding counties in Kentucky after migrating from the New York area. It is believed they came from Ireland in the late 1700's or early 1800's. Some of the families they married into were: Acree, Bazzell, Hamilton, Henson, Holifield, Kelley, Lindsey, Malone, McCoy, Pogue, Potts, and Styles. These families lived in Calloway and surrounding counties. Many of these families have descendants who still reside in that area.
