Are there no McCaugheys, or relatives thereof, whose ancestors were from Chester County, Pa., i.e. Downingtown? My grandparents and great grandparents were citizens of Downingtown, active in the Presbyterian Church, buried in Upper Octorara Cemetery and no one has ever responded to any queries re: this family. My grandfather was Edwin McCaughey, grgrandfather, B. 1850?: Enoch McCaughey, B. 1810, (merchant in Downingtown), and Nathaniel McCaughey, grgrgrandfather. This lineage is also found, beginning on page 111 of the History of the Parke family, (which can be found in the records at Genealogy.com). Janet, Jennette? Stewart married Nathaniel McCaughey (she was the granddaughter of Walter Stewart, officer in the Revolutionary War). Eunice McConant Bunn married Enoch McCaughey. Ella Closs married Edwin McCaughey. All of those listed here--both sides--are from early families of Pa.
I continue to hope someone, somewhere, has a connection to this lineage.
