Notes for Robert McGOUGH
They came to America from Newry, Co. Down, in 1773, arriving at Charleston, SC. They either left or arrived 19 or 30 June. The voyage lasted three months [implying March and September as alternate departure/arrival dates]. They arrived with a group of related Carsons and McDowells, and were not indentured. Religious and/or economic persecution were possible causes for their emigration.
