Reply To: Middleton & Hu(e)ston


Good morning,

My family of Middletons were in Corraghy Townland, Co Cavan and the closest town was Shercock. The closest town for most of the family bdm registrations was Bailiebrorough. I have all the Griffiths Value possibilities as well, many thanks for that. What I am looking for and I have even done 2 lots of DNA is what happened to Robert and his wife MaryAnn nee Cuming (many spelling options) in the US.

I haven’t tried the irelandxo site at all so thank you again.

I think there is a possiblity he went at the same time as his sister and brother-in-law, Martha nee Middleton and John Hu(e)ston to the States. John & Martha went on to Ontario as he had been sent to help set up townships there and there is a town Cavan in Ontario. I found out about Robert because of letters he sent to Martha and John and because John was involved in politics etc his correspondence is held in the Trent Archives.

Interestingly, a Nepheew of Robert’s, Samuel Middleton went to NY c 1908 on the same ship with a John Mahood (his cousin) and they were being met by a John Hueston according to the manifest. There are connections I just have to find them.


Regards, Patricia
