In Reply to: Re: John McBurney, County Down, 1772 by Jon McBurney of 440

Sorry Jon, that's not a connection. Gail, We must be cousins. From what you've posted here I'm positive we are decendents from John McBurney Born in 1772 County Down Ireland.

Copy of a family bible (and I don't know who has the original unfortunately) starts...

"Begining with the year of Seventeen Hundred and Seventy Two, three brothers, John, William, and (Unknown) McBurney came to America from Ireland. The last unnamed brother became seperated from the other two in Philadelphia and has never been traced."

I am the g-g-g-g-great grand son of John McBurney. My records show that John married an Ann Bowers (born in Holland 1785). I am decended through John's eldest son James (born 3-26-1809 "near" Uniontown, Belmont Co. Ohio) who married Hannah Bigham (who's family is from County Armough, Ireland and settled near Uniontown PA in 1805).

My hope is to be able to visit Down in a year or two where Parish records should yield more family information. How are you related to John?
