Donegal / Re: O’Donnell family emigrating to the US

You can look at passenger lists for New York, Boston, Philadelphia and various other East and West coast ports at FamilySearch but they generally give only the country of origin not the county or  city.  O'Donnells were surely  a dime a dozen.

There are Rowan County probate documents here but they aren't indexed and I haven't searched through them:

Maybe a bit after 1740.  The son, Henry, was supposedly born in Ireland in 1744.

I'll take a quick look around but be forewarned, shipping records in that time period are almost nonexistant.

Thank you, both.  I should have thought of Fulton myself.  I shouldn't be searching at 1 AM when my mind is foggy.

Very interesting articles.  In the end, Uppit was not deported.  He became a naturalized citizen, served in the US Navy and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

United States of America / NYT article, 1908

If someone has access to the NYT, I would like to see an article from 9 April 1908, page 3, entitled "Terrorist Not Wanted Here; Case of Walter Uppit, held for deportation, referred to Washington."

This is a good video on the 1918 influenza pandemic in the United States.  [To skip the ads, start at 2:12]:
