Herb Abram's homepage.

Allens/Givens/Wrights/Berrys who emigrated from Ulster to Kentucky and Indiana. Check for other names.

Descendents of John Anderson/Elizabeth Wilson of Westmoreland County, PA. The bulk of this research done by Lois Anderson. She is passed on now.

BLACK. Look for more on this line. The Rev John BLACK (and his brother Robert) from Ahoghill Village, County Antrim.

BLAIR, BRICE, PEDEN and more. These surnames are associated with the Covenantors and early Presbyterianism in Ulster. This website also has a history that is rather mythological. It's the version told by the winners of the wars of the 1600's but it is hardly the truth. Nor is the history of the losers. The causes of the 1641 Rising are now being explored. See "The Catholics of Ulster" by Elliott and "Ulster, 1641: Aspects of the Rising" edited by Brian Mc Cuarta, SJ. These books suggest, based on contemporary evidence, that the Rising was rather spontaneous, not the result of 40 years of grudges and that some believed they were rising in support of Charles I rather than in rebellion against the English presence in Ireland. This is not to excuse the horrors committed by both sides. In additon Elliott shows that many native Irish welcomed and co-operated with the English in the early 1600's, believing that they would be better off under English law than they had been under the Earls.The Irish commoner DID have more legal rights.

Another BRICE page by Dorothy Chance who also has MURDOCKs, POLKs, and numerous others.

Boy, were there a lot of BOYDs in Ulster!! Here's a great website with BOYD research. They got their own domain now! This link goes directly to the Irish BOYDS.

Long Bush genealogy.

Campbells of Southwest Virginia by Phil Norfleet.

Alexander Craghead's Craghead pages. More Craighead Research.

CROCKETT. The Crocketts were a Huguenot family who migrated to Ireland and assimilated into the Ulster Scot ethnic group. They then moved to America, so they are Scotch-Irish. This website is associated with an email list. Here's another one that is very good. Dorothy Chance has Crocketts too (see above). As we have learned on the Scotch-Irish list, there are at least 3 versions of the Crockett history. While someone may have "proven" the line conclusively, if so they wrote a book or article about it. All the stuff on the Internet lacks sources, so beware, beware!

Crooks Family.

Crossetts by Gene Crossett in Terre Haute, IN. The family stems from Anthony du Crozat, a Huguenot from France who settled in Antrim. He married a THOMPSON, and the family intermarried through three generations with HAMILTONS, SAVAGES, and GREYS. This early history was published in the thirties by Frances Plimpton who did it privately for Edward C. Crossett, a wealthy lumberman.

Duncan Roots. Be sure to check out Mary Ann Dobson's pages. The Isadora Duncan line is briefly covered here.

McCords and Robinsons in the American South. A McCord fought at the Siege of Derry in Ireland.

McDONALD. The McDonalds siezed Antrim from its Irish clans in the 1500's, claiming it by right of an earlier marriage. Thus many highlanders were in Antrim in the 1500's. When cousin Jamie - James I of England/VI of Scotland -- took the throne of England, he resolved the territorial conflict in Antrim by confirming the McDonald holdings. He was Scots, after all. He did require that the future Earl agree to allow Protestant lowland farmers to settle among his Irish and highland tenants. This makes family research in Antrim an especial chore. This website focuses on our McDonald kin.
