I'm tracing my dad's ancestors - and know that William McFarland was born 
around 1818 (tombstone and death record) in Ireland, and I believe from County 
Tyrone.  His death certificate lists his parents as Andrew McFarland and 
Catherine Murrey.
Census reports say William immigrated from Ireland to New Brunswick, Canada in 
1833 or 1834.
DNA testing found a second cousin, who's great-great-grandfather Andrew 
McFarland appears to be William's brother (She has Andrew born abt 1815, death 
13 Dec 1894 in Alma, Albert, New Brunswick, Canada).  There may be a sister, 
Elizabeth as well.
Her records show Andrew McFarland (BIRTH ABT 1781 * Ireland; DEATH Albert, New 
Brunswick) and Catherine Unknown (BIRTH ABT 1782 * Ireland; DEATH New 
Brunswick) which matches my names but also includes dates.

I understand that Irish records from that time are hard to find, especially 
without knowing townland or parish.   But if anyone has any suggestions, or is 
linked to that family, I would appreciate the help!

Thank you
Mary McFarland Purchase
