Thanks for posting the list but it's 40-50 years too late.  I need pre-1790 records.  I'll email that library to see if their records go back far enough since visiting is out of my budget.

Thanks.  I know it's a long shot.  Magheralin Church looks like it could be an interesting lead but all the records shown are too recent.

Down / Harmon brothers

Three Harmon/Hermon brothers from Ireland were in South Carolina, USA around 1800.  John, Samuel and Andrew Harmon, sometimes spelled Hermon.  Andrew born 1767.  Samuel about 1765 and John born before 1776.  No information of their father or whether he also came to USA.  I don't know which county they came from, Down is just a guess based on some other records.

Antrim / James Statton b. bef 1790

My most recent immigrant ancestor James Stratton arrived in Virginia, USA in 1806 from Ireland. I believe Co. Antrim/Ulster is his likely origin but I don't have any documentation.  He married after arriving in USA and died soon after in 1809 leaving a baby girl.  One of his brothers was supposed to have gone to USA some time later but his widow and daughter never made contact with other members of the Stratton family.

I know nothing about genealogy research in Ireland and have no chance of making the trip there to do research.  No Ancestry membership either.  I once talked to a Ham radio operator there who knew there were many Strattons still there but no further info.
