The Descendants of Samuel McWhirter
of Maghera, N. Ireland, and Mercer County, PA


(a work in progress)

In the Spring of 1822, Samuel McWhirter packed up his wife and five children and left the Ulster linen-weaving town of Maghera, County Derry, for a new life in Western Pennsylvania, USA.  He decided to come to America on advice from a niece and her husband, a man named Thompson, who had preceded them on the journey into the area.

The trip took them down the St. Lawrence River to Erie where , in July, they disembarked, and made their way down to Mercer County, PA, where they settled on a farm just outside of New Wilmington. There, Samuel and his wife, Mary McCune, had five more children.

In Ireland, Samuel was a linen weaver by trade.  In Pennsylvania, his family attended the New Wilmington Seceder Church.  Samuel was a democrat.  His address was Post Office Hill.  He died at age 55 at home and was buried in the Bethel Presbyterian Church  Cemetery, which may or may not be the successor to the Seceder Church at New Wilmington.

This website is an attempt to unite all of Samuel's descendants into one big friendly group.  If we had all stayed in Mercer County, we'd all know each other.  But times change, and families scatter.  My hope is that through the internet we can all get to know each other well.

I have designed the website so that a descendant chart of the entire family will be displayed.  Each family for whom I have more than a little information can have their own page. If the person is a direct descendant of Samuel McWhirter, he or she may have an individual page.  Photos and biographies can be emailed to me for inclusion. To navigate, just click on the individual in the outline descendant tree, and you will be taken to that person's biography. Click the photos to see larger versions, where available.

TO SEARCH FOR AN INDIVIDUAL USE EDIT-FIND

There is also page of old location photos of the Mercer area.

To submit info and photos (ANY old McWhirter photo you might have!) simply email to me at amyhutton@aol.com

Please also consider joining our McWhirter Family DNA project.  This is a powerful attempt to link our Samuel to the Scottish McWhirters.  If you are a male with the surname McWhirter, you may want to join us.  So far, I only have one man from the family involved, while there are about 19 members of other branches of McWhirters participating.  Visit the DNA project at http://www.mcwhirterfamilytree.com/DNA

PLEASE NOTE:  If you object to listing the living members of your family here, please let me know.  I will delete the information.  But it will help us to have names of living family members so we can get to know each other.
