Comments: I am looking for any genealogical information on Rev. R. A. McFarlane (Robert Adams McFarlane). I am trying to confirm family lore that he is a distant relation (Nth great uncle) of myself. According to this website, Rev McFarland was a minister at the Reformed Presbyterian church in Stranorlar. According to this sitehe was from Mulvin. I would really appreciate anything related to parents, grandparents, spouse, children, brothers, sisters, etc. Family lore says he had a reverend nephew that had his first calling to a church in Glasgow.
Any help or hints you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Comments: My 3rd great grandfather was John Jack (1805-1875)of Tirkernaghan, Donaghedy, tyrone. I believe he married Margaret.
Would this Margaret make sense? Or does anyone know anything else?
January 20, 1829 By the Rev. Mathew Clarke, on Tuesday last, MR. JOHN JACK, of Meahey, to MARGARET, eldest daughter of MR. PATRICK McFARLAND, of Dergbrough, Upper Badony
Thank you. Liz

Comments: Looking for information for my ancestors: John St George (b 1860) son of Annie McElrone and Capel St George. Capel, a Magistrate and Son of Rev Henry Lucas St George Is shown as having died without issue. Annie emigrated to the US . She was a Roman Catholic. I don’t think she and Capel ever married as he was Church of Ireland.

Comments: My grandfather, Francis Hewett O'Neill, was born in Pomroy in 1900. His father, Isaac George, was the son of Jane O'Neill (husband may have been Bernard) and we're told they owned a hotel called the Bellmore Arms. Does anyone have information about a hotel in the late 1800s called the Bellmore Arms in Pomroy?

Comments: Hello, my gr. grandmother Mary Ann Burrows lists Tyrone on her marriage record as the place of her birth. She was married in Belfast at Ekenhead Presbyterian Parish on March 10,1888 to William James Campbell. She lists her father as John Burrows and her sister is Elizabeth Burrows Gass. Elizabeth was married at St. Anne’s, Church of Ireland, Belfast using the name Burrowes on Nov. 16, 1874 to Joseph Gass. She also lists her father as John Burrowes and that she was born in Tyrone. So, not sure if the e in Burrowes should be there. Elizabeth died first on March 30, 1906 and is buried with Mary Ann’s husband William James Campbell and son, Joseph in Belfast City Cemetery. Mary Ann Burrows Campbell died Jan. 21, 1926. According to death records, Mary Ann was 62 making her birth date around 1864 and Elizabeth was 49 at death which makes her birth date around 1857. Did the family move to Belfast or did just the sisters ? So many questions. I had one good lead from the keeper of the records at Rosemary Presbyterian after Ekenhead had closed. He was going to get into the records once some construction work was done and he could reach the records but nothing came from him. I think Tyrone is lost to me.

Comments: Failte: My GGgrandfather is James Donaghey. He married Agnes McLaughlin St Malachys Belfast 1859 and died 1888. His life in Belfast after his marriage is fairly well documented as a flax buyer and parent. However his birth in 1826 is a brick wall with no more records to peruse. Its been said James comes from a family with some wealth but its unproven.
