Migration of the Dollghan family to the New World and Oceana

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Dollghan surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Thomas Doleman settled in Virginia in 1624; Rebecca Doleman settled in Maryland in 1720; Mary Dollman settled in Virginia in 1670; Francis Dollman settled in Mississipi in 1820.
