      There are no ship records for the port of Baltimore for the year 1817.  I think a few more years are also missing but I am not certain of that.  I don't know whether they never had them or they were lost or destroyed.

      Thanks, Kate.


      I am looking for any information on an Alexander McConaghy/McConochy that is listed on the Flax List.  The list has two Alexanders - one living in Ballintoy Parish and one in Billy (Bushmills) Parish.  Perhaps they are the same person with land in two areas.  There was an Alexander McConaghy who immigrated to Beaver Co. PA in 1817, the same year as my gggg grandfather, Robert Burnside.  On Alexander's naturalization record in Beaver he reported he was born in Co. Antrim.  I know that I have seen the actual naturalization record for a McConaghy and they listed they "came from Ahoghill".  At the time that didn't mean anything to me as I thought my Burnsides were from Co. Down.

      I will be in PA next week and intend to look at the actual records again.  The online copy only says Antrim for Alexander.  If he came with Robert Burnside there will be no record of the ship as my gggg grandfather came through the port of Baltimore and records for that port for that year are missing.

      Hi,

      I think you will find that the Presbyterians especially Covenanters were put out of Scotland for their religious beliefs and were not part of the plantation.

      There are hundreds of McConaghys and varietal spellings in N Antrim, whoever is researching would need to be more specific. They could start with a Christian name and address and a date. But that is off the topic as I believe you are looking for a Mid-Antrim connection. No doubt they were there too. I might be able to help with the N Antrim end though.
