William McAfee Sr. & Margaret "Martha" along with their
children, grandchildren, emigrated from West Park,Dunluce Parish, Co. Antrim, Ireland to Sugar Creek Twp., Wayne Co., Ohio in 1838 - 1839. They were farmers and Presbyterians. Believed to have descended from Scottish
Covenanters. William may have used the last name of
McDuffee (unverified) while in Ireland. McAfee and McDuffee are interchangeable in Ireland. Looking for
McAfee, McAffee, McDuffee ancestors in West Park, Dunluce Parish, Co. Antrim, Ireland and nearby areas.

My name is Belinda Johnson-Thurman

Hugh McDuffie McAfee was my great-great-great grandfather. He was born 12-24-1821 and died 7-27-1893.He married Roseanna Toal born 12-11-1824 and died 4-12-1903. Hugh McDuffee McAfee was born in North Carolina and Roseanna in South Carolina. Hugh was a Civil War Veteren, and afterwards they made their home in Navarro Co. Texas.
Hilliard was one of 10 children. Their first child was Hilliard Henry McAfee (my great-great grandfather) who later married Joyce Viola Bostick. Hilliard had 18 children with two marriages. My great grandmother Sarah Cornelia McAfee (aka Sally) was number 11. Sarah married Joseph Clark Johnson and their youngest child Gerrel Dean Johnson was my grandfather. He married Mary Frances Pickard, and their youngest son was my dad, Gerrel David Johnson.

Im very interested in reading any information you may have, and getting to know how we may be related. I would be happy to pass on any more information I may have.
