Revised shortened version of the David McConnaughey Clan.
David McConnaughey, Sr, arrived in America in 1750 and this date was confirmed through two other branches of the family, James McConnaughey, a Revolutionary soldier, and that of his younger brother, David McConnaughey Jr, who died in the 1812 war.
Like many other Scottish/Irish emigrants, it was the treatment by the English government that drove them to emigrate from Ulster to America. Ulster had become too prosperous for the English liking, as the Irish were able to produce better and cheaper goods and cattle than England could.
