Hi,

I'm looking for more information on the McCabes. My grandfather was Lloyd Wilfred (b. 1920) and had a sister named Annabelle. Their parents were Wilfred George McCabe (b. 1890) and Jessie Dawson. Wilfred George had lots of brothers (Albert, William Thomas, Sydney, Charles E, Robert James, Alfred E and a sister named Ada Louise). Their parents were William McCabe (b.1847) and Jane Bristow (b. 1856 in England). The gaggle of kids were born in Lambton County, Ontario Canada. I believe that Wilfred George was born in Oil City, Ontario but cannot be positive.

Lloyd Wilfred married Valance Betty Truscott and has 2 children (my mother Judith Claire and my Aunt Joanne Sybill)

Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!!

Surnames: McCabe - Kinch - Cochburn - Elliott
My McCabe line goes as follows:

Hugh McCabe, b. 1793, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanaugh, Ireland, died 2/24/1878, Goderich, Huron County, Ontario, Canada, married Margaret Elliott b. 1797 Ireland, died 5/15/1883, Goderich, Huron County, Ontario, Canada

their children were:

William Hugh McCabe, b. 1824, Donegal, Ireland, died 5/9/1893, Goderich, Huron County, Ontario, Canada married Barbara Anne Cochburn, b. 1841, Donegal, Ireland,

George McCabe, b. 5/1/1826, Ireland, died 12/11/1901, Washington Township, Sanilac County, Michigan, married, Henrietta Kinch (or Kench) b. 1826, Ireland, died 1/21/1889, Colbourne Twp., Huron County, Ontario, Canada

Rebecca McCabe b. abt 1829 Ireland

My ancestor is George McCabe. Your line does not fit into George McCabe's line - however, I have not done much research on Hugh/Barbara McCabe's line - I do know that they had at least (5) sons that lived to adulthood. Their names were: Hugh b. 1862, d. 1902; George b. 1868, d. 1946; James Elliott b. 1867 d. 1943; William John b. 1871 d. 1950; and Robert b. 1883 d. 1953.

It's quite possible that your line would fit into one of those.

I have more information on William John, who had (4) children all of whom lived in Huron County, Ontario, Canada.

Hugh, died 1/9/1902 in Sudbury, which I believe is in Simcoe County, Ontario. The other sons I have only the birth and death dates.

I hope the above information will help someone.

How large was the McCabe Family in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanaugh, Ireland? My gr-gr grandfather, Joseph McCabe, was born in Ireland in 1830. He married Elizabeth Kearney, b. 1839 in Ireland, in Co. Fermanaugh in 1863, marriage not proven. They had one son, James Edward my gr grandfather b. 1864 in Maguires Bridge, County Fermanagh. Joseph came to the US in 1864 and Elizabeth and James in about 1872/73. The family eventually settled in St. Paul, MN.

Thanks for the information. All I know is that my McCabe side is in Lambton County (Petrolia, Oil Springs, etc.) None of the McCabes on your list seem to match up. Guess there were two lots?
