Hello everyone,

Last year I posted (I thought :-\) quite a long reply to all of you. I have been absent from the site for over 6mths and have just noticed my reply never made it. I have read that this can happen with posts of considerable length. I  apologise for what must have seemed rudeness on my part.

I hope you are all making progress........I'm not!!  :)

warm wishes,

Wendy (Melbourne)

I posted some info yesterday on http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,132759.0.html regarding Janet McGeorge who married John Barclay/Berkley in 1810 in Kirpatrick Durham.  This might be of interest to those of you researching this family.

Regards.

Monica

Have a THOMAS McGEORGE born 1797 in URR PARISH (says US naturalizaton papers). Other details: left Scotland 9 June 1817, and in the U.S. (Maine) first settled in Marion Township on 20 Dec. 1826. May 3, 1835 he moved to East Machias township, settling about nine miles north of the town, where the railway tracks cross Route 191. Any guesses on his parents or best way forward?

Hi T Moffat,
The Thomas first name is fairly unusual for McGeorges.  There were a few in Urr around that date, but no Thomas born 1797.  Unfortunately about this date there was a tax put onto parish register entries, so people of course didn't bother.  I have quite a few McGeorges born about this date, but not in the old Parish Registers and had died before the 1851 census Very frustrating.

The closest Thomas I can come up with was born 1814, Urr, however he married Jane Blacklock 1850 in Urr. This family went to Missouri.

Who did your Thomas marry? Sometimes I can connect families through the wifes name.

cheers

Hi everyone,
I have a John McGeorge born about 1775 in Auchenreoch, Kirkudbright which is very near to Urr.    This John married a Jean Baxter abt 1816 in Springholm, Urr.    His father was a Peter McGeorge and I THINK he had brothers William abt. 1773, Robert abt. 1787 and Thomas abt. 1795.    The last one would tie in with Thomas found in the USA born 1797.    None of this is proven (except that John McGeorge had a father Peter McGeorge), but I will try and have a look at the Urr registers again sometime this week and see if I can find more.

This Thomas McGeorge emigrated 1817, and married in Marion Township in eastern Maine to a woman from Perry, Maine, Isetta Norwood, on 28 Sep 1836. The naturalization papers are certainly clear on the birthplace and year. The Urr Parish website is helpful with the 1802 Voters List, which does focus attention on Hermitage as the most likely location. Hermitage was within the Spotts estate, Michael Herries landlord at that time.
