TranscriptRitter Place,
Huntington, West VA [West Viginia?]
Sept. 24, 1933.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am endeavoring [endeavouring ?] to find
who my ancestors were, so I am writing at random. In
1925 I was in Ireland and bought a ticket to Dononghmore
[Donoughmore ?] from Belfast and found there were several
places pronounced the same and I got to the wrong one as
my ancestors came from Co. Donegal.
My great grandfather was a Wm [William?] who
married Nellie or Eleanor Dugan or Duggan and,
because she was a Catholic, the family did not
approve of the marriage; so the young people ran
away to America to Pennsylvania. I should like to
know what his father's name was. The mother was
Margaret Stinson who came here later. His brothers
were Samuel and John. John married Betsy Job and
came later. The sisters were Jane who married John
Gill; Mary who married - Hogg; and Polly who
married Hogg.
I am enclosing this to Wm [William?] Richey
[Ritchie?] to mail to the keeper of records. I hope
you will be kind enough to try to find an [any?]
previous records and send to me. I sincerely will
thank you.
Yours truly,
Miss Emma McClintock
