Seeking Great Grandparents information
« on: Saturday 15 February 20 20:18 GMT (UK) »
My 2nd Great Grandfather was born in Derry Beg, Drumachose, Derry, Ulster, Ireland in 1838 and emigrated to New York in 1868 with his wife.  I am looking for any information on John Joseph Hill.

The Family Search record shows the child as John Hill (no middle name) and it most likely from Drumachose Parish (Church of Ireland) baptisms-

Thanks - I've been on Family Search but never got these links before.  The family has died out and left me with very little information.
