In looking for my father's family, we found his grandfather, Walter McCready, who was from a town outside of Belfast called Linmore or Lismore. He moved to NY in the 1870's (I think) and married Jessie Stewart who came from Perth, Scotland via Johannesburg, South Africa, in NY. He was an accountant with his own business. They had two sons, Stewart and Joseph (my grandfather). Jessie died at a young age and he later remarried but I don't know anything about that marriage.
Does anyone have a connection to Walter? I don't know if he came to the States alone or if other members of his family came with. I know he wrote letters to his mother back in Ireland. I saw one when I visited Stewart's daughters in Charleston.
