Decendants of Charles McClafferty


Name and Location:

Cliff and Peggy Finney - California

Charles McClafferty and Ellen Clark

Below is an account of all that I know about the McClafferty clan. I got most if not all of this information from my cousin Jack who is also doing research on the McClafferty family.

The McClafferty's, near as I can figure, came from County Donegal, Clondahorkey, Ireland. I beleive that 2 brothers, Charles and his brother Cornelius came to the United States together in the mid 1800's but I am not positive regarding this.

The only information I have on Cornelius is that he married Mariam (Mary) Annam (Ann or Anna) Donnelly of County Tyrone, Cappagh, Ireland P.M.G.(?) on 1/26/1862 per the records of St. John Gualbert Church. The witnesses were Cornelius McHugh and Ellena (Ellen) McCormick.

I am presuming that Charles and Cornelius are brothers as family lore has it that the 2 brothers came to the United States together. Their marriage dates were only 4 years apart and the records for both are at St. John Gualbert Church.

If anyone has corrections or additions to add to this page, please feel free to let me know. This page is ongoing as there is never a true end to family.
