You mentioned a DNA link to McCurdy surname- do you have any more details? I've got lots of McCurdy notes in my files.

Local McCreadys which probably don't help but will post just in case.

Mary McCready born 14 Aug.1865 Clintagh (parents William McCready & Martha Gibson)- not far from Shanlongford-

That Patrick McCready of Magheramore would have been born about 1841. Unfortunately the online Errigal registers start a bit later-
https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0367

Here they are in 1911-

John was born late 1820's so Patrick at 1841 would be too young to be a brother?

The McCurdy matches I found by DNA are mostly 5-8th cousins located in USA, but there are lots of them. Seem to descend from a Daniel born 1677 in Scotland, married Margaret Laughlin born 1695 and both died in Northern Ireland.

The closest match to my DNA was 4-6th cousin called whose mother was Mckirdy from Scotland. She had hit a brick wall with that line.


Just had another look at my matches - Mary McCready clintagh in your link, did she marry a Hutchenson? Possible dna match with her.
