Tyrone / Re: Hughes family,

There was a lot of migration at that time. They could have gone to England, Scotland or USA & Canada. Did you find Michael & Sarah on the census records?

I just discovered yesterday this was no our Michel, sorry

Yes, indeed he did. They married in Whitehill, I think, from memory.

Tyrone / Hughes family,

Patrick Hughes and Elizabeth Brady lived in Aghaloo, Auchnacloy and had children Thomas b. 1862/Henry b. 1865/Patrick b. 1866/Mary Jane b. 1858 and Michael who was their first born and I couldnít find his birth. I can find no trace of any of these children. At some point the Hughes family moved to Dromore, Co. Tyrone but I cannot find them there either.

All I have is that Michael married Sarah Conlon and Mary Jane married, but I donít know who. My wifeís family came from the children of Thomas Hughes, who could possibly have been the only family member who settled in Dromore. I really donít know where the others went.

I guess I didn't think that one through. I meant to say that if anyone knew of him, heard his name being mentioned or any possible knowledge.....

I met his cousin Jessie Frazer Donnelly in that same house. She had just come out of hospital a few years back and she was too unwell to speak. Sadly, she passed away soon after.

Carol, he was born
Alan James Campbell Cameron 17th Aug 1921 (Drogheda)

It is believed that his parents may have separated and Alan was brought up by an aunt (Rosina Donnelly) and lived at 7, Aberfoyle Terrace, Derry. We believe he lived there from the age of 6yrs approx.

It is also a mystery as to where his parents ended up.

If you lived, or know of anyone who grew up in this area of Derry - can you ask them if they knew of or went to school with Alan Cameron. He lived at 7, Aberfoyle Terrace.

You could also look for siblings or cousins in the area. or surnames that are common in his part of Co. Leitrim. People a lot of times went where they knew people.

I have found all his family from his marriage to present day. There is no evidence of other family there, others followed later but went to East Coast.

What would be the incentive or attraction to California back in the 1870s for a young lad from Co. Leitrim? Where there any work incentives or opportunities?

He settled there and farmed.
