I am looking for the family of Thomas McCoy who may have lived in Clogher, Tyrone Co., Ireland. His son John McCoy, who was possibly born about 1750, married Esther/Hester McCartney probably about 1775; their children included John, Joseph, Abraham. John and Hester McCoy left Londonderry on the Mohawk and arrived in America in summer 1802. John McCoy died in West Virginia, in America in 1816. Thomas McCoy had another son William McCoy, who was born about 1747; he presumably married Jane McCartney. They went to America at some point. William McCoy died in Pennsylvania in 1805; his wife Jane died there in 1833.
Presumably this family was Presbyterian and probably weavers.
I am very interested in learning more about this family.
My name is Carol P. McCoy. I live in Brunswick, Maine, USA.
Thank you.
