 Rev. Patrick SIMPSON (Abt 1681-1780) was the second [actually - he was the 3rd] named Presbyterian Minister in the Dundalk Presbyterian Church (which was founded in 1560 and is one of the oldest non-conforming churches Ireland). He was born at Islay Scotland and Married Margaret McNEIL aka McNEILE etc. After stepping back from active ministering (over doctrinal issues), he became successful managing various leases in the area.

SOURCE: A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, Samuel Lewis.http://www.libraryireland.com/topog/d3.php NOTE: The COULTER-Drogheda connection is interesting. In 1808,there was a letter from George Coulter at Drogheda to [John Foster] reminding him of the support he gave Colonel Foster at the last election. He is the only Protestant wool draper in Drogheda, and was assured by Colonel Foster that if his business suffered as a result of the election he would be provided for. He was promised a gaugership, but nothing more has come of this. SOURCE: PRONI: D562/12555.
 Cornelius M’LAUGHLIN of Drogheda, clerk to the said George PIPPARD. Just as the PIPPARD-JACKSON connections are interesting, so is the name M’LAUGHLIN since the George JACKSON (1718-1782) who is the earliest known member of our family tree married a Margaret O’LAUGHLIN in 1743.
