I am looking for more information on the Stevenson family from Castlemelllon/Donemana. My grandfather Thomas James was born in 1890 to Joseph Stevenson and Mary Gilmore and later came to NY after the family moved to Derry. I believe his father is William Stevenson of Castlemelllon but I have been unable to find anything further, any information would be really appreciated. This site has been so useful thank you.

Peter McElhatton, from Altaglushan, Donaghmore Parish, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland became part of the Tyrone Militia at the beginning of the 19th century. A couple years later entered the King's Army, fought in Battle of Malta and War of 1812 with 58th (Rutlandshire) Regiment of Foot. Mustered out in Montreal, Canada around 1815 and believe he is my 3x great-grandfather. Had two sons born between 1816-1818, James and John, who later left for northern Ohio. Interested if anyone knows of Peter's history, his wife, any other siblings to James and John, place and date of death of Peter and wife. Thanking you sincerely in advance!

I am looking for Information on my Dad’s Family, he was born 1915 in Tattyreagh Glebe, Co Tyrone, I know that my Grandfathers name was Hugh McGirr and he married Mary McGaughey , my Grandfather died in Belfast in the 20’s and my Grandmother went on to emigrate to Philadelphia with my Uncle Owen.
I believe my Grandfathers parents were Hugh McGirr and Ellen Grugan, and my Grandmothers parents were Andrew (Andy/ Andream McGaughey and Bridget (Biddy McShane)..
If I were to visit Tattyreagh where would be the best place to try and find information.. I have no idea if I have any living relations still in that area..

My great-grandfather Patrick Hugh Bloomer (known as Hugh) was born in Killeeshill 18.03.1836 and baptised in Tullyallen Chapel. The baptismal record lists his father as Hugh and mother as Margaret Fox, b 1817.
He married Winifred Byrne born Ashford Wicklow, 12.1.1864.

They immigrated to Queensland Australia in 1864. He was a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary and resigned to emigrate.
Hugh worked in the Gympie gold mines mainly as a carpenter in 1867. They had 2 sons, Hugh and James - my grandfather.

Patrick Hugh died 8.11.1905 in Gympie, Queensland and his wife Winifred on 15.06.1913 also in Gympie.

I have been unable to verify details regarding Margaret Fox (Patrick Hugh Bloomer's mother). Her parents could be Keiron Fox and Anna Doogan? Margaret may have been baptised in Tullyallen Chapel and died either 1893 Dungannon or 1866 Tullyallen.

I would really appreciate any contact/info on my Bloomer ancestors.

Desperately trying to find family of William Daly and Isabella Nielson. William was born in Aghaloo 1789 and died in Aghaloo aged 92 yrs. His wife Isabella died in Omagh in 1876.
His son Robert was born in 1834 Glasdrummond and married Eliza Ann Frizzell in the Derrygortreavy Church of Ireland January 1860.
They then emigrated to New Zealand From Waterford with their daughter Isabella who was born in 1861.
I find it hard to believe that Robert didn’t have any other siblings, or that William was an only child. I know there must be relations somewhere in Dungannon so if anybody has a William in there tree that fits this information I would be grateful to hear from you.
Many thanks
Helen Dailey

I am looking for information about my 3rd great-grandfather, Moses Cherry, from County Tyrone. He was married to Eliza Blackburn. Their son, Robert, came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1847, aged 12 (roughly), on the bark Sultan sailing out of Belfast. There is no record of Moses coming on the ship, and he may well have been dead by then. Robert began life as a shoemaker, and Moses may have had the same trade.

Thanks for your help.

Surname: HEARD

Greetings County Tyrone! I'm hoping someone can assist me with locating birth/marriage/children ancestry records for STEPHEN HEARD (1583-14 DEC 1657) and CAPT. STEPHEN HEARD (unk-14 JAN 1696). Both men were laid to rest in Enagh Old Graveyard, Stradreagh. I'd like to learn how they are related to my GGFx6 STEPHEN HEARD (1695-1774) born in Tyrone County to an unknown HEARD. Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
Best in health, Brenda

Researching my Beatty/Beattie and Newberry family of Coagh St Cookstown, Tyrone. This sight has enabled me so find the CORRECT John Beatty, pensioner Married to Mary McDonnell in Derryloran parish. Their Dau. Sarah born in 1832 married Andrew Newberry in Cookstown - my gr-grandparents. (another John Beatty of Sligo and his wife Mary Ann Bleakley are mistakenly noted to be in my family tree) I found John, pensioner and Mary McDonnell-have other children - Letitia and Hugh - info found in this sight that correspond with birth, death & cencus records so I know I am on the right track...one question "pensioner" would that indicate he was retired from the Army?? as he was quite young when he dies. Sarah Newberry dies in childbirth in 1870 and Andrew Newberry dies in a workhouse in Hamilton Lanarkshire in 1891 - my g-grandmother, their daughter is Mary Newberry (1st husb Joseph Adger, 2nd husb William Robertson) Her Dau Janet Mckenzie Robertson was my Grandmother.
