    Along with Scottish and Irish ancestry Julia also has some specific Scotch-Irish ancestry. 2nd-great grandmother as noted (fathers, fathers, fathers, mother) Sarah Ann McMahon (1862-1954) was from Wisconsin. Sarah’s father was John McMahon (1832-1900) and even though he was from Northern Ireland I believe he was Catholic and ethnically Irish. However, Sarah’s mother Maria Jane Richardson (1833-1873) was from Antrim, Northern Ireland to Charles Richardson and Nancy Bailie. At least Charles was Protestant and I believe both have Northern Irish ancestry going back to Scotland.
