Looking for information on a John McCluskey (1st)born County
Tyrone Ireland Came to the US approx 1850s & resided in or
around Chappell Hill Texas and his wife's maiden name was
probably Jennie L Brown they had one son I know of a John
Brown McCluskey 2nd John McCluskey (1st) who died at an
early age (maybe 1871or before ?) his wife Jennie remarried a Mr
Geo T Burke and moved to Brenham from Chappell hill with John
Brown McCluskey (2nd) John had a brother J.G.Burke (who
spent most of his life in Washington county) & a sister
S.M.Burke (later becoming Mrs S.M. Cunningham of Sapulpa
John Brown McCluskey 2nd spent his childhood in Brenham later
Married Miss Robbie Taylor and farmed in Washington & Grimes
counties then living in Anderson he died August 6th 1946 ? his
remains are interred at the Prairie Lee Cemetery (Methodist)
They had two sons John Brown McCluskey (jnr) and (no first
name yet) McCluskey the two boys joined the army John Brown
McCluskey (jnr) went (maybe into the 2nd Battalion, 131st Field
Artillery 36th Texan Division ?) and was captured by the Japanese
and probably died of Beri Beri in a Japanese P.O.W. camp approx
Oct 1944 Philippines ?

The other son (unamed) Joined with the 36th Texan Division and
was killed in action W.W.2. on 20th Feb 1944 Near Monte
Cassino in Italy and would be buried in the U.S war cemetery
south of Rome .

I would be most grateful for any additional information or
corrections regarding John B McCluskey and his family also any
first names
