|Kel Payten||Thomas & Mary McClellan|
Hoping you can help or advise.
One of my Great Great Grandfathers was the Reverend Thomas McClellan (1808 Ė 1896), who served at a few churches in Ireland during the mid to late 1800 such as Macosquin, and perhaps Greencastle, where he lived at some stages in the family Manor house, and where he died. He was the son of Carey McClellan (1785 Ė 1850) and Elizabeth Dysart of Larchmount House, Ardmore, who were at one stage the owners of the Ardmore Bleachworks & Linen Factory.
A cousin of mine advises the family Mausoleum/grave site is about 10m from the back corner of the (old?) Glendermott Church of Ireland graveyard. Apparently both Thomas and his wife Mary Ann (nee Brown) are buried there and perhaps other member of the family, maybe even Carey and Elizabeth.
When my wife and I visited the church in 2013 and wandered around I didnít have enough details of the church, let alone grave location, and it was raining so we missed our opportunity - I have tried to look up the online cemetery databases but they arenít mentioned. I would love to know the exact location and get a photo/s of the gravesite and inscriptions at some stage, if it can be found. Are you able to assist in any way?
Thanks & regards,

Birth of William John Mcgregor 3rd August 1871.
Parents : William Mcgregor and Matilda Mcgregor nee Jones.
My great grandfather.
Who holds the register for this grave yard and is it possible to find out if his wife and baby boy are also buried in this plot?
The family were members of Glendermott Parish church and I can't understand why this grave is in Enagh and not in the Parish graveyard.

Bob Thank you very much. I will add details and expand it for my cousin and for further researchers with the information I now have to hand.

Bob, Thank you for creating the memorial to Matthew John Lyttle which is in the City Cemetery Londonderry.
Do you have any direct link to John?
He is the grandfather of my cousin's husband and he is the custodian of John's First World War and Second World War service medals.
I have taken the liberty of creating a memorial to the other persons named on the headstone and making connections from the other genealogy information that I have traced. I hope you do not mind that I have used the cemetery photo which you used for Matthew John Lyttle's memorial.
If you are willing to transfer the control of Matthew John's memorial to me I would be happy to pass it on to my cousin. I am currently researching what information I can find for Matthew John for my cousin.
Kind regards Alan

I have just stumbled across the wee bio you did on my Grandfather Henry Leo Friel who died on 12th march 1941. He was in fact a Derryman, he was born and raised in the Glen area of Derry, however he was stationed in Newry at the time of his death.
Thank you for your work on my Grandfather's bio.x

|Fergus Sweeney||RE: James Robinson|
Thank you for your reply, will follow up on your suggestion.
All the best,
|Fergus Sweeney||James Robinson|
I am starting a family search about James Robinson who joined the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and sadly died at home on 23/06/1915 before being posted to WW1.
He was a brother of my grandmother on my father's side.
I would like to find out much more about him and would very much appreciate any tips you have to get me started.

|Ken Ray||RE: Rev John T Rea|
Bob, thank you so very much for the transfer and the addition of the will which would help with Jane's origin. Once again, thank you !! Our name change occurred as my great grandparents obtained their naturalization to be U.S. citizens. Appears that the Rea was evidently changed to Ray by the court system...
