John and Mary McQuoid were the first McQuoid in Union Co. as far as I know. They emigrated from Ireland around 1798.
At present I'm sure how many kids they had but two of the sons moved to the Southeast Iowa (William) and the other in Northern Missouri around the Memphis area. Decendants live in both locations as of this day and I am one of them. Presently living in South Korea. I have a web site with more info...when you open it click on Lineage on the top bar.Then click on (more info) under John McQuoid.
