My McAfee/McDuffee(s) were in the West Park
Ballymagarry area, Dunluce Parish, Co. Antrim area near the boarder with Co. Derry.
In my ggg grandfather's case, William McAfee Sr. b. abt. 1777 who married Margaret Martha
Taggart in 1802 (another source says she was
Martha Ray<<surname), William Sr. and at least two of his sons are referred to as
last name "McDuffee" with "McAffee" in parenthesis.
You may be familiar with the following:
The first actual recorded history is that of a "Call" to Dunluce
Presbyterian Church of Mr John Cameron preacher of the gospel on 24 April
1755. Among the names listed who voted for this minister appear Daniel
McDuffe, Daniel McDuffe, James McDuffe, Matthew McDuffe, James McDuffe and
I have not been able to make the connection/relationship from my William McAfee/McDuffe b. 1777 to the above McDuffees
listed in John Cameron's "A Call to Dunluce Presbyterian" by Mullins.
James, Mathew, William, Samuel & Robert are
names repeated in my McAfee family. Samuel was the oldest son b. 12/24/1804.
I would love to know who William McAfee Sr.'s
parents/family are in that area of Co. Antrim
boardering Co. Derry.

I would be very interested in knowing what
you and/or Giles Carter have found out about
Dunluce Pr., Co. Antrim, Ireland to Wayne Co, Ohio, USA in 1838.
