Hi Richard!

I would love to join. My aunt and I are trying to trace our McClarin roots beyond those on american soil. We suspect origins in Tyrone, and Perthshire before that. We are also looking for Smiths in nearby areas.

My 7th great grandfather, Alexander Alexander, was born in Girlaw, County Tyrone.  He was descended from the Scottish Alexanders of Kintyre.

My McClarence/McLaren ancestors came from the Cookstown area of County Tyrone: Bardahessiagh and Dunnamore.

Hi Peggy, I added you to the Tyrone page. Maria will be giving you the Irish Roots badge. I think my Devlins came from the Cookstown area but I hit a brick wall when they moved to England.
Hi Peggy,  You have the badge !!  Welcome to the Irish Roots and Tyrone Projects.

My 3xgreat grandparents were George Love and Mary Moore who immigrated from County Tyrone to Ohio in 1791.  I have tried to find information about them but was told that the records in County Tyrone are very scarce.

Janice, your best bet is the church records. They're slowly coming on line.

Please add me to the list of participants. My 3xGGF came to the US in 1883 with his 5 children and his sister after his wife's death. They had lived in or around Fivemiletown with the older children being born in Corcreevy and the younger children being born in Gortmore. Surnames are Buchanan and Quinn.

I am interested.  My 4th great grandfather George Love was born in County Tyrone and brought his family to Ohio in 1790.  Any information about his parents and the family are solely based on other trees.  I have not been able to find anything from his life in Ireland.  Found a note somewhere that the Loves came to Ireland from Scotland due to religious persecutions.
