McWhirter Family Timeline in America

Agnes McWhirter (1827-1898) was my 3x great-grandmother.  She was born in County Tyrone, Ireland and came to the US sometime in the 1840’s with her entire family.  She married my 3x great-grandfather Robert Clifford (also from Ireland) in Winooski, Vermont on 15 Sept 1847.

This is a chronological timeline for the core immigrant McWhirter family in America after arriving from Ireland.   This has been on my Ancestry.com tree for years, but thought it should probably go up here also.  It’s helpful to know which family members were where and when.  I will add more to this, but it’s a good place to start.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
