I am desperately trying to find ancestors from the Nancy Mooney family, of County Down (Seaforde of Auldglas) area. Nancy was married to Robert Parkinson. It seems that Nancy may have been from Drumcaw, where was Drumcaw? I am sure it was near Seaforde. Robert was Protestant,& Nancy was Catholic. Nancy's family renounced her, evidently. Even with that being the case the couple lived for 20 years near her family along with there children. It is said, that Nancy' buts brothers plotted to kill Robert he was always warned in time. Nancy died in 1817 but before her death she asked Robert to take their children to America. It took them two years to prepare to leave. I would appreciate anyone from the Mooney family, that may know of this story or who may beable to find records that date back during that period, if they would reply. I'd be most grateful for any help, in that area that may list Nancy Mooney, & perhaps some of the Parkinson family. I know the original Parkinsons, sons of "Lord" James Parkinson of England were: James, Hamilton, & Thomas; they are probably buried around Seaforde area. Thankyou very much. Janice Hubbard Dollinger
