I am looking for descendants of a Samuel Mahood who emigrated from Northern Ireland to America. He came from Glenwhirry and had a daughter who became a Mrs Riatt. She had 3 children, that I know of, two girls and a boy. The two girls had scarlet fever in either late 1916 or early 1917. I think that both of them recovered. She then became ill.
Samuel had a brother who came to Australia named James and I think another brother William John whom I know nothing about. Samuel also had a cousin called James Mahood who came to Australia as well. Both James Mahood's were in Warrnambool at one time.
Samuel's lived in Wilkinsburg, Pa.U.S.A.
I am hoping that one of Mrs Riatt's descendants see this and respond.
