In Reply to: information on Draughon's native co. by Deven M. Draughon of 285

Deven, I posed the same quetion on this forum some time back. About nine mo. or so ago I received an E Mail with some interesting information that seems to ring truest. Draughn, Draughan, Draughon is from O'Drauchain, a little used sir name in the Southest of Ireland, wessex, Waterford, and Cork. My little understanding of Gaelic would indicate Drauchain would be pronounced Drauhgn. My Sir name goes back to Sterling Scotland and into the higlands from Cameron. The Draughns in my family come from Walter Draughn also. Isaac Draughn was my gggrandfather. I'm going to Ireland in early april and am going to check it out!
