Wow! All of this information is fantastic! Lots of leads/info to check out!!!

The records I have from Scotland all have them being married in the Scotland Episcopal Church (rather than the Church of Scotland), and google search indicates it as Anglican.  I imagine in Ireland they were with Church of Ireland.  But I don't know that for certain

wow...I will have to look at the Mason White line more carefully.  I've been slowly going through sibling lines to try and fill in the tree and hadn't gotten that far into Margaret's siblings yet.  I do have him. Margaret's brother Mason married Mary Neville (also from Ireland) in 1855 in Scotland.  I have him in the census in 1861 with sons Henry (age 3) and Mason (age 1), but haven't gotten to looking further.  Going to start on that now :)!

so...YES!  Evidence so far points for Mason White (brother of Margaret) winding up in Pennsylvania.  I have a few death records that list Mary Neville (various misspellings of that) and Mason White, including son Henry (birth date is off from the Scotland record, but close).  That find was fantastic! thanks so much!

It looks like a number of the Whites are buried at Mattawana Cemetery, in McVeytown, Pennsylvania and that the forename Mason carried down through some of the line until at least fairly recent times. I would think there is a high probability (hint - check one such on Facebook) of White descendants still being in the area today.


Mason https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=White&GSiman=1&GScid=45365&GRid=53607873& who lived to a great age

his son Mason (although birth year out by about 2yrs) https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=White&GSiman=1&GScid=45365&GRid=53607874&

another Mason https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=White&GSiman=1&GScid=45365&GRid=146879061& who lived until 1997 and the death of one of his daughters in 2010

  I imagine in Ireland they were with Church of Ireland.  But I don't know that for certain

If they were, there are some possibilities including these for CofI:

Aughnamullen (Christchurch)   Births 1888-1901  Marriages 1836-1840 and 1845-1913   
Aughnamullen (Crossduff)       Births 1845-1909

as you can see, though, the available dates aren't ideal. Sources suggest earlier records that did exist, perished.

http://www.rootsireland.ie/monaghan/generic.php?filename=sources.tpl&selectedMenu=sources do seem to have transcripts available for the above dates, albeit at a cost (prices at present https://rootsireland.ie/ifhf/subscribe.php ). 

Remember that www.irishgenealogy.ie should eventually have images online (some already are) for historic B/M/Ds from start of Civil Registration onwards, albeit these dates will 'miss' your timescale, albeit might help with any related lines who remained in the area.

that's fantastic find about the cemetery.  It definitely fits the family.  Might actually be many in the area still today!  And yes unfortunately the Aughnamullen records that do exist aren't necessarily in the time frame I need.  I'm still hopeful that I'll be able to pin down some information for them.  I was hoping to find Mason's marriage to Elizabeth to finally get an accurate surname for her but alas it's not to happen right now...
