It is interesting that your McElhattons first went to PA. That is where William McElhatton settled in the 1740's. We know from his Rev. War army enlistent papers that his son Alexander was born in Derry, Ireland. I have been searching Northern Ireland but so far have not fround any records.
You are right that may Hattons were McElhattons. William's sons changed the name to McHatton about the time of the Rev. War & except for a few of us who use MacHatton the name has remained the same.
We thought that the McHattons living in MA might be descendants from Neil McHatton who was sent to MA as an indentured sevant in 1685--he fought on the losing side of a war.
I guess not.
I'll let you know when I do uncover any records.
