Cormack Family Genealogy Forum
I am searching for any records I can find on my 7th generation grandparents, William Cormac and his wife, Mary Brennan Cormac. This was William's second marriage, which produced a daughter named ANNE CORMAC. The family imigrated to the Colony of South Carolina around 1698. Anne married a JAMES BONNY, when she was about 19, but this marriage ended in divorce. In December, 1721, at age 23 she married for a second time to a JOSEPH BURLEIGH, from Charleston, South Carolina, but they ended up residing in York County, Virginia. There is a "rumor" in my family that Anne Cormac Bonny Burleigh is the SAME woman as "Anne Bonny," the 18th century pirate! This has not been proven, however, but I do have a record of the children Anne Burleigh gave birth to, and the first one was born "out of wedlock," on April 25, 1721, in Jamaica, and named JOHN CORMAC BONNY.
Does anyone have information regarding this? I am searching for church records, birth and baptism records, etc., especially from Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland, where all of this began. I also would like ANY information on William Cormac.
