Scott Family - Tureen, Ballybricken, Limerick
Matthew Barry Scott was born in Tureen, Ballybricken Parish, Limerick, on January, 1850, to John Scott and Mary Grimes; sponsors were William Crow and Ellen Scott. It is possible that John Scott was the son of George Scott and Joanne Maloney and the brother of Richard Scott. Matthew Scott immigrated to America in 1870 and settled in upstate New York where he married Marry J. Kelley and then Margaret Reagan. His brother John F. Scott also moved to upstate New York. Immigration records show that Matthew B. Scott came over with in June 1870 with James Scott (32) and John Scott (28). He is my great grandfather on my mother's side. He purchased farm land in Ontario, New York. He was a foreman in the iron ore strip mining operation in Ontario. A town history even features a miners' song that referred to him. I am trying to verify that John Scott is the son of George Scott and Joanna Maloney. I am also trying to determine what happened to his siblings.
