Hi Mike, I am trying to find Owen Quinn/Queen or McQueen I think there
were 2 Owens in 1838 land valuation of Down. They might be my gggrandfather who lived in Mochrum as ag.lab in 1841, age 60, census Wigtown Burgh and his son Owen Quinn/Queen who lived in Portwilliam village, Mochrum, Wigtown,Scot. Mochrum census 1841 wife Margaret age 20, and two small children, Eliz.Peter later had 4 more children
I tried to find the valuation again in vain, the area may be Ballynahatten, Kilkeel, Co.Down. I mean two Owens father and son, born Ireland maybe my line 1780s Owen(1) and Owen (2) born 1815 possibly Co.Down, N.I.
This is as far back as I go. I have my direct line from this on....1841,1851, 186l
and 1881 my James son of Owen (2) born 1848. Owen Queen/McQueen wife and 5 kids moved from Mochrum to Liverpool where my granddad and Dad lived. I was born Dublin, now in USA as grandad was a pioneer electrician there.
About Killyleagh I found Osborne McQueen, wife Elizabeth born Killyleagh 1780+ moved to Renfrewshire, Scotland had 16 children I cant list them now. He was a mason and some moved to USA, one Elizabeth married an ORR and she is buried there in Salt Lake City.
Parents went back to Scotland died there. I am wondering if he might be a relative of mine Could you check Killyleagh for any data. I can give you exact dates if you think yu can find someting on this family. I hope this doesnt confuse you, lots of data here sorry, regards, Patricia

Subject: [Sc-Ir] KENNEDY & Killyleagh area databases: rebuilding, refining, adding,extending
After a period of extended distractions (computer problems, my own personal genealogy research, some minor illnesses, other interests, and yes, just plain laziness), I am finally getting back to working on my Kennedy and Killyleagh area databases.
The computer problems caused some lose of data.
(a BAD thing).
This loss of data, in turn, caused the need to rebuild the databases.
( a GOOD thing
because it showed flaws and discrepancies that I needed to correct, especially in providing sources for the information.
I am therefore requesting anyone who has found connections ( during their own research ) with any of the following areas ( or others nearby) Killyleagh, Inch, Shrigley, Tullyveery, Saintfield, Crossgar, Kilmore, Killinchy, Ringdufferin, or even Saul or Downpatrick (or other spellings of these towns), to please contribute information to the database.
I am looking for
connections between people,
anything else you wish to contribute,
the SOURCES of the information,
and any contact information with yourself that you wish to provide, etc.
I am NOT going to sell the information.
I WILL provide the information FREE when I get it assembled.
Occasionally while assembling it I may come across information at the same time someone is searching for the same thing.
I will send what I can at that time.
As I get big chunks of info I will offer to do searches.
When I finish ( or finish BIG chunks) I will either set up my own web page for people to search for the information or send it to other FREE web pages already set up for searches.
Right now my focus is assembling the information.
Please send what you can.
The same request goes for any KENNEDY information in Killyleagh areas County Down mentioned above, Kircudbrightshire, Scotland, and Kennedy' associated with Northbridge& Upton, MA, Smithfield & Providence RI, Watertown NY, Fort Leavenworth KS,
