McDevitt Family Genealogy Forum
I am researching Ferdinand McDevitt m. Ora Palmer. Ferdinand
was born in Ireland and we suspect from the Donegal area. Today, I understand the McDevitts of this area are still today referred to as "the Derry Burners" because they were supposedly the instigators of the burning of Derry or Londonderry, North Ireland during a problem era with England.
Does anyone have any historical documentation on this event and the McDevitt's involvement?
