Does anyone have a Rachel Early that fits this description? Would like more
like to know more about her branch.
I have just checked the Fermanagh Gold records and came across some
information on the Saunderson Families.
Is there anyone who is also researching this family and could share some
information? I would be interested to know if they were in the area at
the time of the 1901 Census.
Clogher is a town next door to Augher in County Tyrone.

Subject: [FER-GOLD] information about Clogher?
I seem to be confusing myself terribly. Would someone kindly enlighten
me as to the location of Clogher. Is it in County Fermanagh or County
If this seems a stupid question, it's probably because - at the moment -
I'm feeling pretty stupid over a matter that is very straight-forward.

I enjoyed reading Don Kelly's piece but disagreed with him over his last 2
paragraphs which I've reprinted below. I felt he was making political not
genealogical remarks so I emailed Don with my thoughts. If anyone would
like to read my answer please email me and I'll send you a copy.
Don Kelly" <donkelly(a)grovenet.net> Fri, 25 Jun 2004 ... The vote was of
course a laudable example of the democratic process in action. But
percentages of pro and con continue to change with people for a united
Ireland gaining on people who do not want a united Ireland.
If the percentages for pro united continue to grow, anything can happen
during some future vote. Will Britain accept that vote as a mandate by the
people who live there. Only time will tell.

There is a Parish of Clogher in County Tyrone:
However, there is also a much larger Diocese of Clogher that includes County Monaghan, almost all of County Fermanagh, the southern part of County Tyrone (including the above Parish of Clogher), and a few parishes in Counties Donegal, Louth, and Cavan:

Delay: I realize that my story is of more of a present time. However, I
have heard stories of this nature form different sources.
My Grandfather left Germany with his brother age 17 and he was 19 for USA.
They went via England and worked there about 2 years to get more money prior
coming to the USA. This was not uncommon with single men.
Perhaps your man took passage as a seaman on a ship that had a tour prior
coming to Quebec. Another unrelated item. Why did a single Irishman go to the
USA in 1818 when the other Irish from his area went to Canada for free land?
There are many out side factors that now you will have to take your imagination
and find out the political history. This will help with the genealogy.
I'm wondering about the seemingly "long gap" between the time this lad left Ireland and arrived in Quebec:
"He was born in the town land of Leam, county of Fermanagh, Ireland, on October 15th, 1813, and was 87 years old at the time of his death. He left Ireland at 18 years of age and landed in Quebec in 1835. "
1813 - DOB
1831 - Left Ireland at age 18
1835 - arrived in Quebec
Has anyone else seen something like this? Granted, it could be an informational error as this quote is from his 1900 obituary. But, perhaps it's accurate. Where might he have been during this time?

Go to www.proni.gov.uk and look at the Freeholders' Records for the 1700s to
see if your family is there. Your family may also be in the Ulster Covenat
section for 1912, searchable by place as well as name.

Can anyone help with any info of Thomas McCaffrey and Wife Rose Stinson of Cleenish. They Emigrated to Canada about 1840 with their two Irish born children, Rhoda and John. Interested in Birth, Marriage and Port of Departure.
I will be visiting the area in September and plan to search for Dillon's. My
family came to the USA in 1849. My ancestor was born in Lisbellaw. Can
anyone give me any tips on how to proceed once I get there?? Thanks so much. I
subscribed to FERMANAGH-GOLD just last week and am totally enjoying al the
inquiries and communications.
To answer several queries. I did not visit Old Rossary Churchyard during my
Fermanagh visit last June (my first visit). My cousin Robin went there in
1960 and found it a sad place, all fallen down. I think that most of the
descendants of the people buried there are scattered around the world like my
family and there is no one to look after it.
I did visit New Rossary Church and met several very helpful people and
photographed the Memorial to my GG Grandfather which was moved from the Old Church
in 1841ish. The church was opened early ahead of a service (Removal) so I
could do so.
Some people say the church is uninteresting, but my wife and I both found it
delightful, and the churchyard immaculate.
I did not get to see the microfiche records at PRONI as I had to curtail my
visit to Belfast due to us both getting a chest infection. However, I was
given the list of gravestone inscriptions copied by the Rev WH Dundas and his
sister Miss AM Dundas. Not sure when this was done.
No Grahams. No Faussetts either, but they would have been in the vault,
which was the only remaining visible sign of tombs on Robins visit.
Thanks Bob for the explanation. Someone had sent me a picture via email of a
homestead in Moneenbane but there was another Gilbride family living there
as well as my great grandmother according to the 1901 census info I have so
it had me wondering how you would tell one Gilbride homestead from another

Re: It was apparently common for people with the same names to be given
'nicknames' to distinquish them ...eg. Thomas callaghan (hill) probably
lived on the hill and Thomas (red) may have had red hair, Thomas Callaghan
(master) ...was a school master.
I've been away for a few days....Yes I did see your reply and thank you for
the explanation. I am not researching the Callaghans. I am looking at who
was living in various townlands in the time periods that we have some
records for, and Altagoaghan happens to be one of those townlands. I am
primarily interested in Beggan/Beagan/Beggin/Biggin families.
If you mean Kilskeery RC graveyard, the Clogher Record 1973 contains details
of all the incriptions that could be read at the time. I have a page
someone gave me that indexes the names mentioned from G to Y (the first page
is missing). I can check if any of the surnames you are researching are
