Pamela, I have a word document of some research recently done by one Dr. Henry Cathey of Texas that I think would be of great interest to you, if this is JOhn Richard Brandon b 1691 in England, married Mary Elizabeth in Ireland, and died May 15 1756 in Rowan Co, NC. IF that is the case, then Mary Elizabeth should be a daughter of Alexander Cathey (1665-1698) and Margaret. Alexander Cathey is still, to MY knowledge, the first generally recorded Cathey, being born before 1665 (probably in Scotland instead of Ulster, Ireland), and died 31 January 1697/1698 in Clones Parish, Monaghan County, Northern Ireland.
Dr Cathey gave me permission to share his research - I'll e-mail it to you tonight.
