My maiden name is Lough and I too descend from the John Lough born circa 1750. I read your information on your picture website and just wondered if you have any documented proof (other than getting dates from someone else on line) about John Lough being born in Philadelphia, PA in 1750? The information I have on that John Lough says he was from County Down, Ireland. Though he probably went to Ireland from Scotland (Scotch-Irish) because he was a Presbyterian. I can find no link to him being born in the U.S. Though I do have his marriage information to Elizabeth Speedy (1st wife) and Jane Hart (2nd wife) and his last will and testament. I can find no link to his supposed father John Lough that married Elizabeth Mitchell. There was a John Lough that came over on the ship the "Friendship", but he is of German descent and not the father of John Lough (born circa 1750) and I have confirmed this through DNA results. Thanks for any help.
