Subject: Nesbitt families of Northern Ireland

I am in search of information on my 3X great grandfather Joseph Nesbitt, born between 1801 & 1807 in Rathfriland, Northern Ireland. Most sources show 1801, but most-likely 1807 is correct. Joseph married Jane English and they had at least 10 children all born in Rathfriland - Mary Jane (1832), David English (1836), William Thomas (1837), George (1838), James English (1841 or 1848), Agnes Elizabeth (1841), Joseph (1844), Margaret Jane (1844), and Samuel English Nesbitt (born 1856 in Durham County, Ontario, Canada - the only child not born in Northern Ireland). My 3X great grandfather Joseph Nesbitt is thought to have had several brothers also all born in Rathfriland - Richard (1796), Thomas (1800), William (1805), James (1810), and Robert Nesbitt (1811).

I am also looking for anyone who might have old newsletters called Nesbitt / Nisbet Crossroads, The Family of Albert Nesbitt / Spokane USA from a no longer active website named Thank you so much!

Subject: East Texas Nesbitts

This is a great site! I have been researching my Nesbitt roots for years now and have always hit a road block at my great-great-great grandfather Thomas who resided in Jefferson, Texas. I suspect that he was related to Nathan and Robert but have never found any proof of that.
