Hello everyone. Thomas MacEntee here from Chicago. I grew up in the Hudson Valley and always wondered if the MacEntee and McEntee families in that area were related.
I have recently done some research and I've gotten some great input from Dave MacEntee on this board as well. I've posted two articles on my family history blog.
This one: http://destinationaustinfamily.blogspot.com/2008/02/two-roads-do-mcentee-and-macentee.html
discussed whether or not both families can trace their roots back to a common ancestor from Ireland. I believe they do - and that ancestor is Charles McEntee born abt 1768 in County Monaghan Ireland.
Besides trying to prove that theory, I also hope to prove that these same MacEntee/McEntee families are also related to the Patrick McEntee family of Perry Center, Wyoming County, NY,
My most recent post:
gives some very interesting background on the McEntee family of Kingston and Rondout, NY.
I have more research and writing to do so I hope you'll be patient. I hope to have much of this wrapped up by the end of March.
Also, I will be making a trip home this weekend to visit my Mom in Margaretville, Delaware County, and I hope to take pictures at either the Montrepose Cemetery in Kingston or the New Paltz Rural Cemetery.
