Joe: At least one of these names and places is wrong; have a picture of myself standing over the gravestone of John Alcorn, born 5 May 1610 in Kelso Parish Scotland, and died in Loughmuck Townland, Drumragh Parish, Co. Tyrone 8 Feb 1710, age 100. The names for the three brothers listed may be right but I know that John was the first Alcorn in Tyone and his line continues to this day in a huge manor about 3 Km SW of Omagh, Co Tyrone and his grave is the oldest in the Drumragh Parish Graveyard. His grave is about 5 yards to the left of what used to be the front corner of the Drumragh Church. Its walls stand without a roof. I could send a picture of the grave and the manor if you would like. I was there in 1998 and 2001. Oh, the first Coy you mentioned is spelled Donegal.
