Looking for John Mehaffey (Mahaffey?) and Margaret Clugston of Durmallagh, Aghaderg, Down, Ireland
John Mehaffey was possibly born in Ireland in 1785 and possibly died in N. Carolina in 8/1873. His wife may have been Margaret Clugston (? died in 1867 in Ireland). They had three daughters, Margaretta (born 1/26/1840), Sarah Anne (born 10/15/1844) and Jane (born 7/6/1851). James Mahaffey was born in N. Carolina 11/4/1805 and died 10/5/1840 in Clay County, KY. I am not sure who his mother was. His wife was Ela Crawford born 4/5/1807 possibly in S. Carolina and died 1/28/1884 in Rockcastle, KY. Their daughter Matilda was born in KY 9/12/1830 and died 6/7/1919. She was married to Phillip Rector in Owsley County, KY in 1849 and had several children. She was widowed and married John Oakes Durham in Rockcastle County, KY on 3/17/1863 (children Nancy Jane, Ella Belle, Luella, and Joseph Newman. She married twice more, John Norris then William D. Gooch.
