Auld / McKinley 1788 Country Antrim to Philadelphia
Posted by: Lou Emeterio (ID *****4809) Date: March 01, 2010 at 08:48:11

came across a reference in a 1930 article about a Seceder Presbyterian Church in East Finley or Morris Township of Washington County, PA indicating:

"In 1788 a group of Aulds, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews, nieces and other relatives, a hundred or more together with a similar group of McKinleys, some of whom were bound by marriage to members of the Auld group, all from County Antrim, Ireland, chartered a ship and set sail for America. After a tumultuous voyage of seven months, they landed at the port of Philadelphia."

I firmly believe my Carroll clan and the Aulds were at least associated with each other and probably were from the same town in County Antrim.

Can anyone expound on this?

Does anyone out there share this story in their family history?
