Looking for ancestors from Armagh--Long & BrownMy great grandfather, Robert Long came to USA about 1836 at the age of 14 with 2 brothers, James & Thomas Brown, and their sister, Isabella Brown who was 8 years old. Eventually Robert Long married Isabella Brown in Ontario Canada and pioneered a farm in Grey County, Egremont Township. We have no idea the names of their parents, my great-great-grandparents. Robert Long was born in 1822. Isabella Brown was born in 1828. All we know is they were from 'Armagh'--city, town, township, or parish--we don't know. There may be a connection to Kilmore Parish. Are you missing a relative who emmigrated to North America?
It may seem odd that my great grandparents were born so long ago, but I am the youngest of the youngest of their youngest married son and am only the 3rd generation born in Canada. I may have to find access to Presbyterian Church records for birth records--perhaps you could help with that as well?

Hart Family of County ArmaghTrying to tie this family down. What little is 'known' is on an Isaac Hart, his brother Jacob and their sister Betty. The early information on Isaac is takrn from his court documents at the time of his naturalization on Octoberr 18, 1836 in Franklin County Indiana. He state that to the best of memory he was born in County Armagh about 1780. From it we also learn that he left Belfast in June 1817 and arrived in Baltimore Maryland. He finally made it to Franklin County Indiana in October 1819.
There are letters between Isaac and Jacob. From them it is though that the brothers left Ireland for Hamilton Scotland where they open up a Linen Merchants busineess. It is not known if Isaac immigrated from there or went home to Ireland before immigration.
When Isaac reached Baltimore Marylands it is thought that he traveled to New York where he married Mary Carruthers. Mary had been born in Ireland also.
I am thinking that with them opening a linen merchasnt business in Scotland they most have known something of linen. Either the growing of Flax o\r the actual linen merchant business. This would mean that they were probably members of at least one guild correct? I have found some Hart names in a 1796 Flax Growers list. Is there anyway to find the familuy that Jacob, Isaac and Betty belonged to? It is known that they were fairly religous but I dop not think they were Catholic. Isaac and Mary were notr buried in a Catholic Cemetery in Franklin County Indiana. Soi that leaves COI (Anglican) or Presbyterian correct? What is the best way to find pariosh records if any.
