Running into a wall with my 3rd great grand father Thomas Graham and his Father going back.

Thomas Graham born 1819 Tyrone County
Married Elizabeth McCormick 1848 Tyrone County
Died 1863 Tyrone county(not sure how he died)

Widowed wife Elizabeth took the kids to the United States in 1866, one her sons named Calhoun Graham was my 2nd Great Grandfather.

On the chart I have it lists Thomas Graham's parents as Sir Robert Graham, and Margaret Hamilton, and that is where I have really no information to confirm that, or Thomas's death, or any further lineage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

In working on the ancestry of the Hamiltons, I've just stumbled upon a Word.doc entitled "Dunn/Hamilton Relationship [N.Tyrone Dunn Families]" The document is undated and unsigned, but I am certain that the author was James Dunn Laird and I believe the work dates from no earlier than 2017.

I have subsequently learned that of Lord James Dunn Laird, who passed away in 2018, and that he has provided important information concerning the Hamiltons acknowledging that his cousin of the same name, from Glenagoorland, was also an expert contributor to that branch of the family. It is the James Dunn Laird of Glenagoorland, who was working on DNA connections with his American relatives, with whom I would like to exchange information. I would much appreciate any assistance in making contact.

Thank you.

I am trying to find information for my 2x great grandmother who was born in Co Tyrone in 1838. Her parents were John Kerr and Janet or Jane Montgomery.
She migrated to Australia on a bride ship in 1856. I can not find any information about any of these people.

My gr grandmother Jane Anne Purvis born in Arboe Co Tyrone in 1856 to parents Samuel Purvis born 1833 and Nancy Ann McQuestion came to New Zealand in 1874.
Samuel Purvis parents were William and Mary Purvis from Arboe and I have been trying to link William Purvis into the various Purvis families I researched in the Arboe, co Tyrone area before after 25 years DNA linked me to Samuel and Nancy Purvis... Celebration.
I would appreciate if anyone has research on a William and Mary Purvis in the Arboe area 1833 when Samuel was born being in touch. Warmest regards, Faye

I am seeking information regarding by ancestry line which has hit a wall in Tyrone County, Ulster.

My Great (x6) Grandfather, Roger (maybe Rodger) McPike was born in Tyrone circa 1735. I have no information regarding his time in Ulster.

He relocated to the USA before 1765 and married a woman named Sarah Drake McPike in 1765 in or around the state of Virginia.

His place of death is listed as Natchitoches, Louisana, a state which is located in the southern part of the United States on the Gulf of Mexico.

If there are any sources which I could research or suggestions as to where to go for information, I would be very grateful.

I was once married to a many from Belfast and spent four years in your country and had the pleasure of visiting Tyrone on a couple of occasions. I wished I had known the information regarding my ancestors during that time.

Thank you!
