MOUNT family: does anyone have any idea whatsoever, my knowledge is that it was more likely in Nottingham Twp. before Mercer County was formed, where Benjamin (1686) APPLEGATE family lived? As far as I can say, Nottingham Twp. was in Burlington County until Mercer County took it in about 1715. Benjamin did not move into Nottingham Twp. until 1740, and last APPLEGATE's to Allegheny County, Pa. arrived in 1773. I will share!

I am searching for Michael and Mary that came from Ireland and gave birth to 3 children in Trenton, New Jersey, between 1853 and 1857. The children's names were Catherine, Michael and then John. They left the New Jersey area moving to Illinois then Minnesota after John was born. On the census records the family is listed as both O'DONNELL and McDONALD. Family lore says Michael and Mary married in Ireland, but we can not find their marriage records in Ireland or the United States. Thank you for any help you can provide.
