.-MacMaster/McMaster Family


            William Henry McMaster was born May 4,1870 in Ireland. According to his baptism record, he was born May 4,1870 to William Henry and Elizabeth Warnock MacMaster. Abode: Kildarton, Parish of Mullabrack, County of Armagh, Ireland.

             William’s father , William Henry MacMaster,Sr. was born in Wales. He went to Ireland, and there he married Elizabeth Warnock. He was killed in a train accident, leaving  his wife and nine children .It is not known if he was working for the railroad,  was a passenger, or a pedestrian when the accident happened.

            William’s mother, Elizabeth Warnock MacMaster, was born in Armagh, Ireland October 9,1846. She was the daughter of James and Jane Simpson Warnock. She came to Illinois in 1896 with all but one of her children .Her daughter, Jenny, preferred to stay in Ireland. Elizabeth MacMaster lived with various families of her children until her death while living with her daughter, Margaret McMaster Stratton ,on a farm in Victor township, Illinois .She died September 7,1926 of myocardia at the age of  79 years, 10 months, and 28 days. She is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Sandwich, Illinois.

             Their oldest son, William, was the first child to leave Ireland. In 1886 he came to  the United States to live with an uncle in Sandwich, Illinois, and worked at the Sandwich Manufacturing Company.  He saved his money, and in 1896 he went  to Ireland, got his mother and seven siblings, and brought them back with him to the United States. They arrived in Sandwich, Illinois, “U.S. of America” on Saturday, April 18th, 1896.  They all lived in a house William had rented in Sandwich, Illinois. “Bill” supported his family until his marriage to Mary Louise Gregory.  He started farming on a farm with a house big enough for only his  immediate family. 

            The Sir name was spelled MacMaster until legally changed to McMaster by William after he returned from Ireland to Illinois .

This book is the genealogy line of  William Henry and Mary Louise

Gregory McMaster. Included is information received from family members and from a Coleman genealogy shared by Mrs. W. W. Woodbury of Sandwich, Illinois.

                                    She shared a bit of the Coleman’s history with me:


                                    Their (the Coleman family) first visit to the area was in the fall of 1800. They were on a hunting trip around Lake Michigan where they met the Pottawattomies. Others returned to Ohio, but Coleman  stayed the winter with Chief Spotka near  Chicago. He married   Pokanoka, Spotka’s daughter. She is buried near Ottawa. They had  2 sons and 5 daughters. Chief Shabbona’s first wife is buried in the Grove. After the Blackhawk War, Shabbona returned home to DeKalb County. Tecumseh, chief of the Shawenee Indians was slain  in Canada September 1813. Shabbona returned, never again to war. Between 1835 and 1849 he was not at the Grove for his permanent home. He accompanied  others to the reservation in 1837.                                                             


                                    Mary Louise Gregory McMaster reported being related to Chief Shabbona, but was not sure in what way, and was always sorry not to have proof of the relationship. How happy she would have been to have the privilege of this information I was given . If she would have communicated with the other members of her family, she could have known so many facts she wanted to know . I hope this will help us to realize there is family around us, if we just look.





            Thank you for all the help and information given to me by so many McMasters
