Hugh and Hannah (probably McCormick) Brady were among first settlers near what is now Shippensberg, PA in late 1730's to early 1740's. Some say they left from Ireland, others say England. Early researcher stated he was born near Enniskillen.  I need help either with someone who can look up ship info, or tell me my best places to look. There is much debate over siblings who may have arrived at same time as well as Hugh's parents. (Other Bradys do show up about this time.) Other names linked: Simonton, Quigley, McCormick. Some son's; grandsons RW and CW heros. I am doing DNA segment and triangulation study to try and sort some of this out.

Did not find the ship Hugh Brady sailed on, but his stated birth year in the cemetery record is at variance with the arrival time in your post.
Thanks Frank! I don't know why my brain was 100 years off. This is indeed the Hugh and Hannah I am wanting ship records on. I have sat on that porch, napped in the barn and floated the creek.
