My maiden name was McBreairty and I was born in Northern Maine. My Grandfather was Hampton George McBreairty, Sr. (Hampton, Jr. was my father). Hampton Sr. was the son of James McBreairty (1859-1914) and Abigail "Abby" Oakes (1857-1925). His grandparents were James McBreairty (1824-1900) and Catherine Henderson (1835-1875). Great grandparents were James McBreairty (born - Parish of Enniskihl, County Donegal, Ireland) and Sarah Gallagher also born in County Donegal, Ireland). This James was the son of James McBreairty (Parish of Killbeg, County Donegal, Ireland) and Catherine McCormick.
A number of cousins and I are all researching the Irish McBreairty/McBrearty family and are also trying to connect our family to that of the McBrearty families of Scotland.
