Seeking descendants of Margaret BINGHAM née McELWAIN, Eliza Ann TIPPIN(G) née McELWAIN, Elizabeth STAFFORD née McELWAIN, all daughters of Richard McELWAIN & Mary McDOWELL. They were born early 1800's. Richard farmed at KILLIN, Co Louth. 3 sons, George, John & Walter Richard came to New Zealand between 1840 and 1857 where they married & settled. Fourth son Henry stayed on family farm Killin where descendants continued to live. One G.G.granson still in area. I am a g.granddaughter of Henry above & writing family history & tree.
