McBride Family History
A record of the ancestry and descendants of Reverend Daniel McBride (1766-1823), itinerant minister who was born in Stillwater, Albany (later Saratoga), New York, and his wife, Abigail Mead (1770-1854), of Dutchess County, New York

The purpose of this web site is to gather into one location all known genealogical and historical information on the ancestors and descendants of Reverend Daniel McBride, an itinerant minister who was born in Stillwater, Albany (now Saratoga) County, New York in 1766 and died in LeRoy, Genesee County, New York in 1823.

Daniel McBride was the son of Samuel McBride, who was born in County Antrim, Ireland and emigrated to Upstate New York in the mid 1700s along with at least two of Samuel's brothers, John and James McBride.  Samuel McBride married Margaret Brown, whose sister Sarah married William Cooper.  Members of the McBride family were directly affected, if not involved, in the Revolutionary War Battle of Saratoga.  Information on these other McBride and Brown family members is also included here.

Daniel McBride married Abigail Mead, who was born in 1770 in Dutchess County, New York.  She descended from the Quaker Mead and Fiske families of Fairfield County, Connecticut.  Abigail joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1833, almost 10 years after Daniel's death, as did most of their 9 children, and, after living in Kirtland, Ohio and Nauvoo, Illinois, emigrated to Utah in 1847, one of the oldest persons to cross the plains to Utah in that first settlement year.  She died and was buried in Ogden, Weber, Utah in 1854.
