I am trying to find info on my immigrant Brady family. We know they were in the colonies in 1742 [date edited by Elizabeth Brady, 8/9/17] when Hugh Brady was 21. Would love to find marriage record to his wife (possibly in Ireland) Hannah McCormick. Would also like to know what ship they arrived on. These are questions that no one has yet answered.

I did my first presentation today! I have no idea how to do the google follow stuff. I am computer challenged and will need to be walked through.
Love the Irish! The Hugh Brady and Hannah McCormick line we among the earliest settlers in the American Colonies. They settled near Shippensberg, PA and raised their sons and daughters here. This family boasts several Revolutionary War Patriots. They contracted with the Crown and cleared roads in PA. The Descendants of Hugh and Hannah Brady Association holds family reunions on the land in Shippensberg, Pa which is owned by a Brady descendant, who has restored the original cabin and barn.
One of my tougher lines. Have always been told this connects to Greenwell in KY.
Searching this family with ties to Australia
The new frontier.
Irish roots for my Brady line.
Searching for McCormick in Cumberland Co, PA colonies.
Most distant information finds David Prichard born in Claiborne Co. TN. He married Catherine Sharp and migrated to MO in 1840's. After Catherine's death he married again this wife is unknown. David later moved to Kansas where he died.
Looking for family tied to David Pritchard/Catherine Sharp through their daughter Sarah who married E.V. Rogers. Their daughter married E.R. Carter; their son is Dr. Clarence E. Carter.
This Sharp family was one of the first of this surname to arrive in this country. From Germany they lived in the Netherlands for a time before migrating to Pennsylvania Colony.
This family settled in Berks, Clearfield and Lancaster Co. PA in the early 1600's from Germany. Our immigrant ancestors are Frederick Shoff and wife Magdalena Boehm (Beam).
Is there a way to put a bell on this to remind me?

Hi Cousin Barbara,

I just wanted to say hello! And to share that we are 22nd cousins. Our common ancestor is Fenando Alfonsez (Castilla) de Castilla, King of Spain. (1201-1252). Wikitree ID: (Castilla-105). He is your 21st g-grandfather and my 23rd.

I don't know if you are aware that we also share 25 more ancestors after him up to 30 generations, who are monarchs of England, Germany, France, Spain, etc.

Beyond that, the older ancestral trail gets even more interesting to explore! Your roots are in the Monarchy of many different countries! There are ancestors, of yours, who you'd likely be astonished to discover!

Just wanted to share this information with you, and to say Hi. Isn't Wikitree Fun!

Good luck in your searches, I am curious to see about your Bell's and others, once you get them on the tree. If that's ok? Have a great day. =)

Hello... I see we are straight 16th Cousins through Patrick Graham. That's on my father's side. =) On my mother's side I have Bell and a few other names we possibly might be related through. I love meeting new cousins, so Hi *waves*.

Hi there Barbra! Looks like we are 15th cousins 3xs removed so obviously we are so extremely closely related that it appears we don't share any DNA that I can see.  :-)
