hi Mary Lee
You've done a fantastic job of tracking down Irish McLinden &c records.  I don't think i've ever come on so many McLindens/McAlindens &c on one site.  My mum's line are McLindens, Scottish but originally from Ireland.
Our earliest known one is Michael who eventually settled in Girvan, AYR, Scotland by the very early 1800s.  He married and had a family who spread out all over the place. 

I've never found out when or where exactly he was born but conclude from his 1841 & 1851 Scottish censuses that it would have been around 1871 in Ireland, most likely Northern Ireland around Co. Down, Armagh or Louth.  The names appear to have been commonest around that area anyway.

Looking at your list of wills, makes me wonder if his dad or grandad could possibly be amongst them.  Although if they weren't well off, maybe my lot never made out a will.  Frustrating!  Where did you find these?  Are there likely to be others anywhere and do you know if there is any way of finding out who all were named in them? 

I notice you have a few other pages so will have a look before saying more.  I may have a little i can add.

Have to correct myself, a typo :( my Michael McLinden was born ca.1781 not 1871.  My sincere apologies.
