MCIVER, SULLENGER posted by Helena McIver Howell on Tuesday, June 10, 2003

My ancestor, William A. MCIVER,age 36, appears in 1850 census of Fishing River township, along with wife, Lucinda SULLENGER. William emigrated from County Tyrone, Ireland in late 1840s(exact year unknown) and settled in Ray County (date unknown).He appears in 1860 census as age 43. Family memory says he may have emigrated with a sibling, but no documentation to support this. Are there other MCIVERs in the vicinity in 1850 time frame? I would like to learn William's date of death and date of birth. What historical event or situation would serve as a magnet for an immigrant from Ireland to settle in Ray County? Thank you for your help.
