Peter's mother and father are John and Bridget married in 1806 Armagh County.  Trying to find brothers and sisters of Peter and Margaret.  Not sure of her last name :  McCann (but not related) McKey, or Loughran.  Married in Ireland 1838. Five children born, four in Seafin and one in Clonlon.  Peter immigrated in 1850, Margaret in 1853. Five more children born in USA.  Searching for information on John McCann and Bridget McCarraher also married in Armagh.  I would like to know all of their children including Peter.

I would suggest you contact Armagh Ancestry, which is a genealogy service for County Armagh.  You can email them on researcher@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk with the information you have and they can advise on the best way forward
Hope this helps

Hi Janice

Make sure, if you have not already done so, that you eliminate the database of Armagh Ancestry at http://www.armagh.rootsireland.ie as a search of their index shows that they hold a baptismal record for Peter McCann in 1807 to parents John McCann and Bridget McCarraher and marriage records of 2 Margaret McCanns in County Armagh in 1838.

Although RootsIreland website is the largest online source of Irish church register transcripts, it must be emphasised that a failure to find relevant birth/marriage entries in this database doesn't mean that the events you are looking for didn't happen in Ireland. It simply means that they are not recorded in the database; for example, they may be recorded in a record source which doesn't survive for the time period of interest or in a source that has not been computerised.
