Thanks. I don't believe your John McCay was a brother of my Robert. Robert was the oldest. I am sure of his brothers David (1827) and Andrew (1835). Mathilde, Hugh (1825) and Martha (1831)may have been his siblings too. But there is probably too wide a gap between 1810 and 1835for John to have been Robert's brother. And this is the first time I have heard of a John McCay. But I have turned up an interesting possiblity in relation to you. Andrew's (1835)grandson is still alive in Ireland. Andrew had a daughter, Margaret (1878) who married a James Nethery. Their children were Edith (1913), Blanch (1910) and William (1905-1977). William had 7 children as follows: Blanch, Haig, William, Percy, Ray, Nan (1932) and James (1940). By any chance are you this James? If so we are related by marriage !!!! It is probably too long a shot to be true, but at least let me know.

Robert: I'm not sure of your Robert McCay/McCoy, but I had a gr gr gr aunt Elizabeth B. Nethery who was married to a John McCoy. John was born circa 1810 in Ireland. His wife Elizabeth also in Ireland. Their oldest child, Mary Ann McCoy was born 04 March 1830 in Lynn, Tyron Cty, Ireland. She married William Wilson in Eldersie, Scotland. John McCoy also had the following children: John b. 24 Jun 1832 in IRE, Robert b. 01 Jan 1841,IRE, James b. 26 Dec 1845, Scotland, Elizabeth b. 08 Apr 1848,Scotland, Martha b. 20 Nov. 1851 in Edinburg, Scotland, then William b. 26 March 1854 in Wisconsin, Thomas b. 21/22 June 1857 in Wisconsin and then Charles, b. unknown, killed in Civil War.
Sounds like there might be a connection. Maybe your Robert and my John were brothers. I haven't traced the McCoys any further because Elizabeth Nethery is my line. Good luck in your search. james a. nethery

Robert: You mentioned in your original email that your Robert McCAY/McCOY was born in Drumquin in 1819. My John McCOY was born in 1810. I'm confused as your response said Robert McCAY/McCOY was born in 1835. The way I see it, Robert and John could have been brothers as there is only a 9 years difference in age. As I mentioned in my original response some of my gr gr grandfathers siblings were born in County Tyrone, Ireland.

You wouldn't happen to have an address or email of the James Nethery who was born in 1940 and still lives in Ireland would you?

Where do you live?
