Research/Writing in Progress: MacKrell

(Last updated 12/26/15)

Research questions:

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MANY SPELLINGS OF THE SURNAME?

DID OUR MACKRELLS & NORRISES COME FROM MAGHERA, DERRY, OR PERHAPS TYRONE, NI?

DO WE DESCEND FROM LORD McKERRELL OF HILLHOUSE IN DUMFRIES, SCOTLAND, AND ON BACK TO HUGH MAKERAL OF LINCOLNSHIRE?

HOW ARE WE RELATED TO THE MANY MACKRELLS FROM WEST DEER TWP. AND BULL CREEK CEMETERY?

IS THERE FAMILY REMAINING IN WEST DEER TWP?

Newly discovered resources:

GOOGLE “MACKRELL WEST DEER TWP PA” (OR INSERT ALLEGHENY CO PA)

Articles begun: 

NONE

Speculation:

MANY OF THE FAMILIES LIVED TOGETHER IN THE OLD WORLD AND STAYED TOGETHER AFTER THEY EMIGRATED HERE.
