As a military wife, I move around a lot, and have the privilege of seeing a lot of different places. I have been privileged to see many churches where my ancestors were christened, married, or buried. I love learning about my ancestors.|

Thanks so much Dana. I appreciate all of your loving volunteer work. I know I just love doing find-a-grave and genealogy. I wish that I had more time to dedicate to it. I too, have to go back to retake pics. sometimes there's a pole or one of those rolling ladders available here and other times, there is none in sight. Just be careful of wasps and bee nests.
|Marilyn Banks||Old Ballykelly Presbyterian Church|
This church graveyard is NOT Ballykelly Presbyterian Church - It IS the ruins of Walworth C of I. The present Walworth C of I is located just south of here on Station Rd. The gentleman who gave you that information was badly mistaken! Below is the correct information for the location of the OLD Ballykelly Presbyterian Churches.
"Using information from the Ordnance Survey Memoirs the old Presbyterian Church was in the townland of Tullyhoe. The Memoirs state that the first church was built in 1630 on the west bank of the Bessbrook River, about 100 yards from Bessbrook house. A new Presbyterian church was built about 1760, 200 yards further west of the old church. This is the church which was demolished when the current church was built in Ballykelly. There is no trace of it remaining, but using large scale Ordnanve Survey maps I believe it would have been situated South of the Ballykelly Road at a point where the Broighter Road joins the Ballykelly Road. This position can be seen on Google maps."
