Looking for any info on parents and siblings of these two ancestores of mine who were from Co. Antrim.

James was born 12 Aug 1762 and Margaret in May 1763.

After they married they had 3 daughters in Ireland, Martha, Ann, & Margaret and then sailed to America about 1782 reportedly with a family named Adger who may have been related.

They settled in South Carolina, for a while at Charleston. They had 5 more girls and 2 boys who lived past infancy.

Nancy, David, Eliza and Jane where born in Winnsboro, SC followed by Mary, James M. and Susan in Columbia, SC.

Eliza married Robert Waddell about 1830 and they lived in Columbia until they died. Their son James Davis Waddell is my great grandfather.

Robert also came from Ireland, Co. Donegal, arriving in 1820 at Charleston.

I am interested in any info on these families, especially in Ireland. The only other info I have is that they were Seceders and at least the Waddells were Scot-Irish.
