My fathters people came from the Letterkenny - Killae area just outside Derry in Dongael. My own great-grandfather traveled between Ireland, Philadelphia, and South America in the late 1800's (Cattle Boats from Argentina), but while he was in the US he used the surname "Cambell". I have seen some geneological books that state that "MacAilian" was a gallowsglass "sept" of Campbells who hired out to the O'Donnells and O'Neills in the Elizabethan wars.

Long story - but do any of you "McCallion" family have "Campbells" in the background ?

Thanks for any info.

Joe Mc
