My grandfather, William Vincent McDermott was born 2/5/1906 of William Vincent and Elizabeth (Phillips) McDermott in Philadelphia, PA. He was grandson of Frank and Susanne (Ryan) McDermott, Frank a native of County Mayo, Ireland who removed to Philadelphia in 1860. Elizabeth (Phillips) McDermott was daughter to Patrick and Caroline (Keppard) Phillips, Patrick also a native of County Mayo.
My grandfather, William V., attended Villanova College near Philadelphia and graduated Loyola University in New Orleans to practice law in Mobile, Alabama. He married Jeanne B. Ledoux of New Orleans on June 16, 1930 and had three sons, William H. (1933), Charles L. (my dad, 1936) and Edward B. (1939).
Most of the W.V. McDermott family resides in Mobile, Alabama with branches in Aberdeen MD, Savannah GA, Montgomery AL, Nashville TN and Atlanta GA.

I am tracing mcdermotts from county mayo, castlebar in particular, but as far as I know none crossed the water other than to come to England in the 1840s. Unfortuneatly Patrick Mcdermott was a very common name I have found a couple locally, some even changed to other names to avoid some of the hostility shown to immigrants around that time. I think one of mine changed to George after the King at that time.
There is a Geneology Centre in Castlebar that will help for a fee, to trace the name in the County, you may wish to enquire????

Rosemary, Thank you for such a facinating and interesting insight into at least one branch of the McDermott family, but I cannot trace my line before Castlebar County Mayo about 1845 and then they all seemed to come to the United Kingdom but no doubt many others of the same name went West instead of East in search of better lives?

Rosemary Hi.
Is there possibly a Francis McDermott in your family? He was in Jersey City in the late 1800's, m,Ann Weeks in the 1880's. Had two daughters, Sarah and Margaret. The daughters married Kessler and McLaughlin.
I think McDermott had an Ice and Coal business.
Thanks for any help you can be and good luck to you on your search.

Dear Diane, We have a James Francis born July 1879. So I guess this is not the connection. We have him married to Kate ??? We are really at a dead end. If there was one Francis maybe there are others in the family! The must be out there somewhere! THank you so much for your reply!! I can send you what information I have if you like. You may find a connection. Let me know!! Rosemary

I have a James McDermott born in 1800 in Mayo, Ireland. I don't know anything about his parents. He married Mary Loftus (born 1804). They had a son named James Loftus McDermott born 3 July 1830 also in Mayo, Ireland. Anyone tie into this line?
