I am researching my mother's maiden name of McQuatters. It was spelled in Ireland; McWatters. My ancestors came from Newry, Co. Down in 1853-54 to America.
James McWatters was born in Newry, Ireland on April 12, 1819. His parents were William McWatters and Ann Aikins. James married Jane Jardine on October 29, 1849. Janes parents were William Jardine and Sarah McKibbin. Jane was born on June 4, 1824 near Warren Point, Ireland.
