Hi Carole,
I think we might have a McWilliam hit.
My great, great grandfather, Rev Thomas McWilliams, was born in Carnteel in 1804. His parents were John McWilliams (1766-1826) and Eleanor ? (1770-1843), buried in Aughnacloy graveyard.
He had three brothers: Rev James (b. 1794), Dr Moore (b. 1803) and John. I don't have a birth date for John, but he must have been the eldest. Beyond the information that he stayed in the area and that some of his descendants emigrated, I know nothing about him - Are we talking about the same family?
My great uncle carried out extensive documentary research fifty years ago, so I have fairly complete records of the family in the area in the 18th century. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible to take the family back further in any definitive way though there are various possibilities.
I also noted the Christian name Moore and made the same deduction - Do you have any hard information?
How far have you got? I'd love to hear from you.
Peter.
