Born in Ireland

Postby IrishAmeican » Thu Mar 29, 2018 11:36 pm

Lawrence McGuire/Maguire was born in Ireland about 1725, I have documented him in 1752 near Philadelphia, Protestant/Presbyterian, seems to have prior military experience, was enlisted in 1st Pa militia as Sargent, was married before 1750 in US or ??, served in Revolutionary war from Virginia, I have this already, just looking for any clue to his Irish heritage.

thanks: Will McGuire

Not sure if this is the right Lawrence McGuire or not but did find a Sgt. Lawrence White McGuire, son of Lawrence & Catherine (White) McGuire of County Cork.

Thanks very much, I had looked at this Lawrence McGuire and Katherine White, she had a interesting resume, her mother Katherine Norcott, daughter of John Norcott had been married previously to a Benziger Mourdock and had family, then married to John White, with more family, her daughter Katherine White married Lawrence McGuire in 1726, diocease of Cloyne, then had at least four more children, Judith, John, Katherine and Lawrence (not sure of order), the date is close, my Lawrence McGuire was born about 1725-1726 and was in Pennsylvania by 1752 when his son Joseph was born, the Lawrence in Cork was undoubtedly literate, my Lawrence was illiterate, as much as I would like to adopt that family in Cork, I find it much too unlikely. I thank you for the effort.
