: MY HUSBAND IS LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON HIS GRANDPARENTS. JOHN CROWN FROM MANOR HAMILTON, COUNTY LEITRIM AND CATHERINE CLINTON FROM LONGFORD, COUNTY ROSCOMMON CAME TO AMERICAN SOME TIME AROUND THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. WE ARE NOT SURE IF THEY MARRIED IN IRELAND OR AMERICA.
I too, am looking for information on a John Crown and his family. He was born in the early 19th century and married Alice Campbell in approximately 1832. We know that some of their 6 children were born in Newry, County Down. They emmigated to Canada in 1846 and John Crown died at sea. The rest of the family arrived and settled in Ontario. I am descended from one of their sons Thomas Crown, and his son John James Crown. So far, I have found no Crown family located in County Down. any help would be appreciated.
