I am looking for leads into a line of AGNEWS that migrated from PA to OHIO to INDIANA.  My great-grandfather of this line was JAMES AGNEW. I do not know his parents' names.  What I need to find is a line of AGNEWS who leave Pennsylvania for Ohio. The one leaving could be named Samuel or James or William.  He would have left Pennsylvania before 1841, probably before 1820.   His birth and death dates are certain, confirmed through family members and on gravestone in southern Indiana:    b. July 10, 1841 in Ohio   d. 27 June 1906, New Albany, Indiana, from a fall off a ladder.  <carol.black@newberry.edu>

Iím interested in information on the family of Thomas Agnew and Elizabeth Main (or Mean), married in Wigtown, with children Thomas (b. 1805), William (b. 1811) and Andrew (b. 1815).  It has been suggested that their marriage may have taken place in Kirkcolm, Wigtown on 21 Sept 1794, but we have other sources that suggest dates of birth for the pair (1788 and 1789 respectively) which make that impossible.  The William Agnew born to them in 1811 was, as best I can tell, my g-g-g-g-grandfather. <craig.buchanan@mail.com>

My family is descended from Henry Agnew who was transported from the Magherafelt/Castledawson area in County Derry (Ireland) with his brother James, to Australia in 1836, arriving in Australia January 5th, 1837 on the St Vincent. Their parents were Adam and Bridget Agnew (nee Birt) After receiving their tickets of leave, and re-united with their wives and children in the mid-late 1840's, the families settled in Numeralla in the Monaro Region of New South Wales. I have, with other Agnew relatives, traced a lot of our family history. We are keen to share this information and to see how we are connected to other Agnews.   <annieagnew@me.com>
