Dear Historical Society

  1. 1727 time frame a James Breakenridge
  2. history states Scottish by blood - emigrated from Ireland
  3. wife Sara
  4. two sons James and William  about 6 and 4 Francis died enroute to MA
  5.  
  6. Music Book recorded dates - music taught by a Robert Cairne
  7. States Glenreavoll ---but Google changes it to Glenravel.
  8. Assume Scots Presbyterians
  9. Do you have the grave of Breakenridge/Brakinrig, etc   also in music book called the young James was called Jacobus - his wife was Sara and both buried in MA.
  10. People place him in Antrim-was there a migration early 1700 from Scotland? the First James father died when he was 13 in IReland or Scotland--Mother remained in Ireland or Scotland...do not know surname.
  11. Was there a Presbyterian group in Glenravel?

Thank you for your time...trying t find origin of place in IReland and Scotland--note that name is not preveland in IReland- and has deep roots in Scotland.

Re: family history information

The Oliver family came from Armagh. James Oliver married Mary Ann Cunningham in Lisnadil Parish Church. They were C O I. I wiuld like to know where James Oliver's father came from, his name was Henry.
