My grandmother who was born in 1871 in County Mayo, Ireland was Honor Cormack there but when she came to America she used the name McCormick as did her brothers and sisters. Her father and grandfather also used the name Cormack in Ireland although there were some families there in those times who used McCormick/McCormack. Do you know why or is there a reason? I'm just curious. I have heard that "Mc" just means "son of" but why didn't they use it in Ireland, and did in America? I'm asking you because you seem to know a lot about the Cormack family. Thanks, Nancy
