Hello Mary, Thankyou for the response. The earliest Loughhead I can identify is a Rev. Robert Loughhead, Ireland around the late 1700s. He would be your relative if you are connected with James.
From memory my line is...Rev. Robert Loughhead who married an Elizaeth Stuart. Their son James married Eliza Knox (this is mostlikely your James)Their son John Knox Loughhead married Emma Germein. Now specifically my side, their son, Rev. John Isaac Loughhead married Antonia Schwartz who were my mothers parents. Other children of John Isaac and Atonia Loughhead were Harold (dec) Majorie (dec) Doug (dec) John (dec) Ron (dec) and my mother who is now 84.
I have a bit of info and some photos, copies of church minutes from Ireland in regard Rev. Robert who was discimunicated and started his own church. Of particular interst to you are legal documents re James claims to his parents estate in Ireland. James at this point now living in Adelaide.
My uncle had a proffesional research done but lost many of the documents. He is now deceased. There is a family tree that goes back, on Elizabeth Stuart to 1600 onwards. I would be pleased to forward whatever copies I have and hopefully information you do not yet have.
There are children of my mothers brothers but I have had no contact since early childhood. Fom memory there was a Jeromy, Cyndi, Colin and John who lives in Adelaide.
I have many dates, births, deaths, marriage, siblings etc
A bit about me. Early 60s, married 5 children and 5 grandchildren. Live Healesville Victoria.
Am going to try and attach a photo to this of my grandparents John Isaac Loughead and Antoia with childrem Marjorie and John. There has been a John somewhere.
Kind Regards......Ken Swincer
