||Location - County Londonderry 1818
| I am searching for information about James WATSON, my gr-gr-gr grandfather. He was born in the Parish of Clondermot, County Londonderry on August 1, 1768. In 1818, at the age of 50, he immigrated to Adams County,PA,USA.
He left from the port of Derry on June 17, 1818 and arrived in the port of Philadelphia on September 6, 1818. I do not know what ship he traveled on. After in the US, he married Mary GIBSON of County Tyrone. (She had formerly been married to James HINDMAN also from Ireland, possibly County Tyrone.)
I would like to learn more about his life in Ireland and hopefully find out about his family and ancestors in Ireland. Incidently, he had 6 children (after the age of 50!!), and lived to be 101 yrs, 7 mo, and 21 days old. He was most likely a farmer and a Protestant while in Ireland. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have any information in connection to this family. Thanks in advance!!
