  1. Dear Gavin Bamford: I enjoyed your hstorical memorial about Thomas Mahood. Several years ago I learned the name of the small town on the NE Irish coast. But I have the papers in storage. Perhaps you know the Mahood story! My first American ancestor, James Mahood, was a Revolutionary War soldier in the 4th Maryland Regiment which at Yorktown. There was also a Colonel Mahood with Cornwallis. 40% of the Continemtal soldiers were Scots-Irish. General George Patton is one of the more recent examples! My Dad was an artillery captain with Patton in WW II! Please contact me by email about the town on the Irish Coast: Your comments are appreciated! Charles W. Stone
