Lorraine Courtney
William J. Gallagher Memorial
Dear Tommy -- My name is Lorraine Courtney and I am the daughter of Marion Courtney whose name appears on the memorial with her father, William J. Gallagher, and brother, also William J. I knew my grandfather came from Northern Ireland, from a location called "something Stewart." I always presumed it was Portstewart. My grandfather did die January 1, 1942, although it was questionable as to December 31, 1941, since he passed away at midnight of the new year and the death certificate states the latter date.

My question is how you found out his birthdate of 22 September 1889 and from Newtownstewart. His death certificate says his birth is 5 May 1893. I realize Irish records are frequently inaccurate.

I'm also curious as to whether you are a relative since you carry the same surname.
Will look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
