My dear Sir:

I am interested in looking up my ancestors, the
McClintocks. The one that I know of furthest back is
Hugh, born 1750. He had many relatives in
Pennsylvania, but there is no record who his father or
mother were. I found a record that says that Gilbert
McClintock, a Scotchman, was killed in a feud. That he
had three sons. One was in the Siege of Londonderry,
1688, one was killed, one went to Raphoe. That James
McClintock came from Raphoe to America. He had four
daughters:- Rachel, Mary, Sarah, Ann, and one son
James, one Sam.
Have you any word of any McClintocks that came to
America? Will you kindly give dates, too. Hugh lived
in the same county in Pennsylvania that James did, and
I thot [thought?] they might be brothers, and sons of
I shall be so pleased to hear something from you
(Miss) Emma McClintock.
