|Alan Rosborough||Fahan Old Graveyard & St Mura's Church Graveyard|
I am trying to do a tidy up in relation to Old Fahan Graveyard and St Muara's Church graveyard as there seems to have been an overlap on Find a Grave of these two very distinctive graveyards which are in very close proximity to each other.
I have created a new cemetery called "Fahan Old Graveyard" and am trying to get all the very old burials transferred out ot St Muara's Church Graveyard and would be grateful if you could assist by editing the burial details of those burials which you manage.
Also I note you have a photo pointing to Fahan Mura Cross Slab which points into Fahan Old Graveyard and St Mura's Church Graveyard can be seen in the background which may be a little misleading. I think this photo whch you took should be attahed to Fahan Old Graveyard,.... what do you think?
Kind regards Alan.
I'm trying to find the graves of George Ash, Esq., owner of Ashbrook, who died in 1796, and Stephen Holland, who died around 1803. According to Stephen Holland's will, he asked that he be buried 'in Clondermot new churchyard near the grave of my late dear friend George Ash Esq.'
I understand that Clondermott is now called Glendermott, though I don't know which church the graves are near. Can you help?
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
|Joanne Highton||Doris Dennis|
You kindly added the Grave for Doris Dennis born 1924 and died 1940. Simple question, are you connected to this family?
Would love to know
|Alan Rosborough||HACKETT, PHILIP JAMES|
Bob, I have added a newspaper cutting detailing the deaths of Philip James Hackett and Philip McLaughlin. The newspaper article states they are buried in the City Cemetery.
I have used your pictures of Philip Hacketts grave on the Friends of the City Cemetery, Facebook group and hope you do not mind.... I have credited photos to you.
Thanks for your information on Find A Grave as it has helped explain the cause of their death in broad terms.
Kind regards Alan
|Richard Doherty||Captain Henry Gallaugher DSO|
I've just read your note on Henry Gallaugher. The comment that he was recommended for a posthumous VC but that the award was not made because four VCs had already been awarded to his battalion is not the case. The 11th Inniskillings, with whom he served, received no VCs that day and only three were awarded in all to the attacking troops of Second Army, two to ANZACs and one to an English soldier.
Henry Gallaugher did not receive a posthumous VC because the citation submitted by his Commanding Officer, Lt Col Pratt, was so poorly written that it wouldn't have been taken seriously. A primary school child would have done a better job.
|Kel Payten||RE: Thomas & Mary McClellan|
Thank you Bob. I'll give it a go.
|Barbara Mcmanus||City cemetery derry|
Hoping to locate anyone related to Great Grandmother Sarah Anderson born 1855 died 1895.
|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,
|Amanda Buchanan||Re: Wiialm John Mcgregor. Enagh old Graveyard|
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.
|Alan Rosborough||RE: Matthew John Lyttle (John)|
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.
