William McAfee Sr. & Margaret "Martha" along with their
children, grandchildren, emigrated from West Park,Dunluce Parish, Co. Antrim, Ireland to Sugar Creek Twp., Wayne Co., Ohio in 1838 - 1839. They were farmers and Presbyterians. Believed to have descended from Scottish
Covenanters. William may have used the last name of
McDuffee (unverified) while in Ireland. McAfee and McDuffee are interchangeable in Ireland. Looking for
McAfee, McAffee, McDuffee ancestors in West Park, Dunluce Parish, Co. Antrim, Ireland and nearby areas.
Looking for descendants of the above family in Ohio.
