County Tyrone coat of arms

The largest county in Northern Ireland, Co. Tyrone also boasts some of the most beautiful scenery on the island, thanks largely to the heathery peaks of the Sperrin Mountains, which stretch across the central and eastern portions of Tyrone and into Co. Londonderry.

Hillwalkers certainly won't want to miss out on the 48-km Central Sperrins Way, a marked circular trail that starts from the Glenelly Valley near the village of Plumbridge, and continues across a varied selection of roads, field tracks and open moors, as well as a blanket bog.

Tyrone's county town is Omagh, a place that resounds in most minds with the 1998 Real IRA bombing, but today it is rather quietened, with a lovely canal and church steeples that rise above the picturesque town centre. Omagh is also home to the rather twee Ulster American Folk Park, an open-air "living museum" that chronicles the relations between Ulster and the U.S. Exhibitions here mostly show off homemaking skills like baking and sewing, conspicuously leaving out any mention of more recent exchanges between Ulster and the U.S., especially as they would relate to The Troubles.

The Beaghmore Stone Circles are a series of seven ancient ceremonial stone circles located off the A505 west of Cookstown. It is believed that Neolithic farmers cleared the early woodland here to make room for the site, which in addition to the circles, includes 12 cairns and 10 stone rows.

Sport is an important part of Tyrone life and identity, especially Gaelic football, of which the county has won three All Ireland titles and 13 Ulster titles. Peter Canavan, who captained the Tyrone team to its first All Ireland title in 2003, is from Glencull near Ballygawley. PGA golfer, Darren Clarke, is from Co. Tyrone's other large town, Dungannon.

Other famous Tyrone people include folk singer Paul Brady, writer Flann O'Brien and John Dunlap, who printed the first American newspaper and the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

According to the Book "History of Alabama and Her People" by Albert Burton Moore, my 4th Great Grandfather, James M. Smith had origins in Ireland. Unfortunately, the book never clearly states where from. He was born c. 1778, but isn't clear on the place. His first born, Daniel Ulysses Smith was born in Georgia,USA while all other children were born in Alabama, USA. Is anyone familiar with this family?

(Part 1 of 3) The Smith name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says one of its origins is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Smith’s of Cavan story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Smith surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Smith story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

My name is Sally and I am looking for James Wilson. Actually the first Wilson in Ireland of our family came from Scotland about 1590 or so. I have a letter from a relative who says that in 1600 the Wilson in Ireland lost all three sons to drowning in the well on the farm in County Longford – just south of County Cavan. His first name is not known but the letter said that after those deaths, he moved north to County Cavan. Clearly the family remained in County Cavan for over 200 years. The earliest documented Wilson was John Wilson who was born about 1760 in County Cavan, Ireland. He had two sons - including William Wilson who was born in County Cavan, Ireland in 1790. He married Esther Coote (also from County Cavan) and they had 7 of their children born in Ireland. The nine of them then they made their way to Canada from Ireland – quite a trip. That was about 1840. (Their last child born in Ireland was born in October of 1839 and their next child was born in Ontario in 1843.) William and Esther settled in Cobourg, Ontario and then commenced to have 5 more kids – for a total of 12

Robert Wilson

This was written by my father beginning with his Grandfather Alexander: Alexander Wilson was brought up somewhere in the parish of Redrock, Market Hill, Armagh and it would seem that he married sometime between 1840-50. He and his wife set up home in a small farm in the town land of Lisbane, Armagh (this farm is now owned by the Carmichael family). He also had a leather business and manufactured boots at the lower end of Thomas Street, Armagh. Alexander Wilson and his wife, Margaret, had six of a family, William, James, Alexander, Margaret, Eliza and Joseph. William emigrated to the Americas in his youth and was very little heard off. James carried on his fathers business and it would appear, was very successful He later owned the Mancheste

Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Campbell surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe.

This means a strong likelihood of Donegal Lynches being O Loingseachain, especially taken together with the comments of Woulfe, supra.

My mother always told me we were descended from the Galway Lynches, but her mother Katherine Bridget Lynch and her 7 siblings were born in Moville, Co. Donegal. Her father, Edward Lynch, was a marine engineer, and her mother, Katherine McLaughlin, was a District Nurse. They resided on Quay St. and sadly, died at young ages, when my grandmother was 9 leaving 8 orphaned children 5 of which were minors. They went to live in a Catholic orphanage across the Bay of Inishowen in Derry. My grandmother immigrated to NY and Brooklyn in 1911. Later married John Barr of Ballymacarthur, Donegal. Hello...

Lynching is attributed to Charles Lynch 17361796, an American Revolutionary who headed a Virginia court punishing supporters of the British. I prefer the story I was passed down, that it originates from a Mayor of Galway, James Lynch, who hung his son from the balcony of his house in 1493.

Attn: Witros I recently posted an article on my great grandfather Patrick Gallagher who was born in Aghavanny Leitrim which has been absorbed by Kiltycloger. Most of his children were born in Manor Hamilton which is between Kiltycloger and Drumkeeren. I have been researching my family and I do not know, but we could be somehow related. However, of my ggfather's 10 children, 8 immigrated to the US about 1892, but they all went to Chicago, not NY. Will let you know if I find any family connection. Jack Fritz

Greetings and Happy St. Patricks Day to all. I have been searching for information on my great grandfather James Gallagher. To the best of my knowledge, he was born in Co. Leitrim 1868-1872. On his New York City death certificate it lists his parents as James Gallagher and Bridget McPartland both of Ireland. He left Ireland around 1892 and settled in Brooklyn, New York. He married Anna Woods who was born in Drumkeeran, Co. Leitrim. I have been unable to find any information on my ggf James and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

My Grandfather's family raised and trained thorobred horses. One of his baby sister's was trampled by a horse accidentally and died. Two of his older brothers beat up a Priest once and his injuries were so severe that he died. The two boys were sent off to serve in a war from their actions. My father, Hugh Alexander McKenzie came to Canada to work on the railroad. I don't know who his parents or siblings were. Also, apparently as the story goes, his family (the McKenzie's) were kicked out of Scotland for stealing sheep. Then his Father married an Irish woman.

Quinn - why only the famous? Mine certainly were not! I would love to know where the Enniscorthy Quinns lived prior to Enniscorthy and 1800’s but have already been told it is impossible to trace my Quinn family - yet Ive been able to get back further than a lot of people researching Irish ancestry. . My Quinns are from Enniscorthy, County Wexford, today and back to early 1800 John Quinn. Johns son James Q married Bridget Redmond (1825bn) c1844 NLI - daughter of James Redmond and Kitty Kavanagh married Enniscorthy 1811 (NLI) Their son Thomas Quinn c1850-1939 married Elizabeth Brien Thomas daughter Mary Eliza Quinn, my Grandmother 15/1/1897 Enniscorthy, (family in 1901/1911 Census Shannon Hill Urban) married England 20/12/1923, died Slough England 1988 . Thomas son Francis known as Frank married Annie Dixon - fought wars in many places overseas and their descendants still live Enniscorthy today Thomas son James bn 1886, started as a cleaner and was in the Irish Guards went to war - was wounded (shell shot) in France and returned to either England or Enniscorthy. He did definitely return to Enniscorthy soon after and then left again (family said to America? Never to be heard from again - his Uncle Patrick Ann Quinn is still alive but a very sick man who would love to know what really happened to James. Patrick has just done DNA testing in an effort to try to find descendants of James. My Mother only knew her Mother and Frank but had no other information on the Irish family at all. Unfortunately mum passed away 4 years ago age 91 and I only found my Enniscorthy family in June this year. My brother and I have also done DNA testing so I know where we connect up with the other Quinn strands in Enniscorthy and have shared this information with my family connection. 23andme say my famous ancestor is Benjamin Franklin and Bono lol. FTDNA dont offer this. I tested at both sites. Kind regards Carol

(Part 1 of 3) The Quinn name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Quinn story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Quinn surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.
Reply

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Quinn story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
