this is interesting; other Dinsmore material in PRONI mentions an
Adam Dinsmore from Templemore, Derry, who went to America with a
letter of recommendation re his good conduct. It was attested by a JP
at Muff, co. Donegal in 1772. This sounds like the same connection as
your old minister. The PRONI material contains a 1993 letter from a
descendant of this Derry Dinsmore, Mrs Mamie Atkinson.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if these Donegal and Derry Dinsmores
are the same as the co. Antrim ones; the article mentions several
sons of the first settler. However, I think the Knowehead in the
article might be a co. Antrim one, because of the other surnames
mentioned. I think there is a Knowehead close to Ballymoney, close to
where Pinkertons and Hunters, as mentioned in the newspaper. lived.
thanks for your interest!
