The Story of the McAuley Family

The McAuley family is on my husband's paternal line, from Monagahn, Ireland. They came to the US in 1819 and settled in Ogdensburg, NY.

Reverend James McAuley
5th great-grandfather

b. Monagahn, Ireland in 1792
e. Emigrated to the US in 1819
m. Margaret in Ogdensburg, NY after 1821
d.  December 10th, 1867 in Ogdensburg, NY

This is the family history document I have detailing the life of James McAuley and his son Duncan Turner McAuley.

Martha is the last McAuley in the family tree as she married into the Wright family. She deserves a post all on it's own as she gathered much of the previous family history on the McAuley and Thompson family trees. We have hundreds of photographs, notes, diary entries and newspaper clippings that we've compiled.
