I'm a newbie at this but am seeking information regarding Michael McCarthy born 1755 in England. Fought in the Revolutionary War reportedly with the Pennsylvania Militia. Wife was Elizabeth McCarthy. Michael died in 1813 in Decatur, Otsego County New York. They had a son Patrick, born 1789 in Otsego Co., N.Y. who married Catherine, nee Cooper who died in 1849.Patrick later moved to Winneskiek Co., Iowa. Any info regarding parentage of Michael? It is assumed the lineage originated in County Cork, Ireland. This great-great-great granddaughter appreciates the help!
