David Mack (c1797-1864) of Lisburn
« on: Saturday 18 May 13 15:24 BST (UK) »
I'm hoping for help, please - I've ground to a halt.  :)

David Mack was born circa 1797 and died 29 Feb 1864.  He married Margaret McCall in Lisburn in Sept 1828.  They produced 8 children (6 boys and 2 girls), one of whom was Hugh, my husband's great x2 grandfather.  David was a woollen merchant in Market Square in Lisburn. 

I would love to track down David's parents but am having some difficulty.  Any help or suggestions would be enormously welcome.

Thank you in advance.

There's a grave at Kilrush Cemetery mentions a David Mack with his father as David Mack senior.

Thank you both so much.

Dathai - that's very interesting:  I believe David Mack's brother-in-law was Hugh McCall so am assuming this is the right connection.

And Gaffy - you've certainly given me something to think about!  I wasn't aware of even the possibility of a County Clare connection.  (I'm assuming that's where you meant - forgive me, but I had to Google 'Kilrush'  :))  I need to go back to my husband's family for a team huddle!

I'm grateful to you both.

LOL Aghadowey  ::)  How come I couldn't figure out Kilrush was in Lisburn!  What a plonker!

I am completely overwhelmed by everyone's contributions, all of which dovetail perfectly with information I have already.

I am so, so grateful.
Thank you all.

Gail,

Belfast - Lisburn - Woolen Goods - 1800s ...
Click, click, click, click!
Matches with the research I do on the WHITTLE family of Glenavy/Belfast.

Can't help you with your immediate goal (David MACK's ancestors), but can open your awareness up to the rich trading history surrounding the family, and especially the cultural/political influence of the McCALLs, in the Lisburn of the 19thC.

Would you like the (extensive) gathered details deposited here or via PMs?
