Article by bgengomez2009

I am looking for any and all information on my family with the Last Names of McCool and McCormick. I have quite a bit of information which is listed below. I am not sure what parish they belonged to. Peter McCool -POB-Coraine, Ireland Married Hannah McCool McCool Had one daughter that I am aware of who is my Great -Great Grand mother Margaret McCool Pob-Coraine, Ireland. Margaret McCool Married James McCormick POB-Coraine, Donegal, Ireland.
They had a total of 13 Children one set of twins that we know of. From what my great Grandmother Anna told us who was one of the 13th not many of them lived. As far as we know two of them moved to the U.S. Below is the children in order

Some new information I have come across

James McCormick?s marriage to Margaret McCool was registered in Stranorlar Apr ? Jun 1893, Volume 2, page 331

According to 1911 census there were 6 children (all living in 1911)- 2 are with the parents, Peter and Cassie (possibly Catherine):

In 1901 there are 4 of their children in the household- Mary Anne, Peter, Cassie, James:

If this is the same Cassie McCool then it looks like her brother Peter/Patrick went to New Zealand:
"Probate of the Will of Peter otherwise Patrick McCool late of Kinaderry County Donegal Private New Zealand Forces who died 9 June 1917 in France granted at Londonderry to Cassie McCool Spinster."

Children of Patrick & Hannah McCool:
Patrick (1872)
Margaret (1874)
Mary (1876)
Peter (1879)
