Looking for info re: Elizabeth McFetridge.
According to a marriage record I located, she married
Robert Hugh Herbison, b.1832, Ireland.
He was a resident of Kirkinriola when he
married Elizabeth (Eliza b.1837) in Oct. 1855, Antrim, Dunaghy Parish. The
marriage record corresponds to info that I have as far as their
ages and the name of Robert's father, Hugh Herbison.
Elizabeth McFetridge's place of residence was given as Eglish, and her fathers name was also Hugh.
Robert and Eliza immigrated to New York in Dec of 1855.
They settled in Falsburg, Sullivan Co. NY and had 9 children, Robert,
Martha, Hugh H., Mary, Andrews, James, William, Elizabeth(?) and Samuel.
Hugh H. Herbison married Rosa Bley. Hugh died at the age of 42 in
Charter Oak IA, leaving Rosa a widow with 6 children: Dorothy,
Louis Bley, Clarence Robert, Albert Hugh, Lena Irene and Ralph Samuel
Louis Bley Herbison was my grandfather. I am the daughter of one of his
sons, Charles Herbison.
It's a long shot, but would love to hear from anyone if this info rings any bells.
