Migrated to/Born in USA

According to an undated letter written by Mary Elizabeth (Conner) Haynor, my grandmother and a 2nd great granddaughter of John Connor, he was born in 1741 at Castlepollard, County of Westmeath, Ireland.   County Westmeath then was a conclave of Catholic parishioners, and we know that John and his family in Ulster, County, NY, USA, through at least his children were of the Presbyterian faith.

John Connor had 2 children, Charles (1763) and Robert (1765), by his first wife Margaret McCutchens in Ireland. She may have died in childbirth. John Connor and his children emigrated to Ulster, County, NY, USA in about 1767. John married Hannah Denn in Ulster just after that and had 9 more children.

DEATH – John Connor's original will was written 9 November 1794 and before 13 October 1797, the Probate filing date, which was presented to the Court Surrogate, which was approved 13 November 1797.  This means John Conner likely died within 60 days before 13 October 1797 • Wallkill, Ulster Co., NY.  In this filing, Joseph, his first-born son by Hannah Denn, his second wife, is named executor of the estate and John Connor is shown as deceased.
