[1] Randal MacRory: At present we are unable to supply the links in this genealogical chain down to Thomas MacRory (or MacRogers), who A.D. 1689, was living in "The Three County March," parish of Ardstraw, in the co. Tyrone. This Thomas was twice married: his son Daniel, by the first marriage, had six sons, five of whom settled in America, and one died without issue. A lineal descendant of that Thomas MacRory, by the first marriage, was Philip Rogers, builder, living (in 1877) in or near Limerick; son of Philip, who lived in the county Fermanagh, who was son of the said Daniel. By the second marriage, the said Thomas had fifteen sons; some of whose descendants to this day live in and about Ardstraw, and some in America.
