My experience with Irish naming patterns is the first son is named after
the paternal grandfather 2nd son after maternal grandfather.
William being her dad and john being her husbands dad. same order for
girls at least for me.

Hello all Armstrong listers.
Do any of you have a Catherine Armstrong born c. C.1776, who married in
1798 at St. Mary’s Ardess, Magheraculmoney,
Andrew Moffat of Magheracross.
Catherine (Armstrong) Moffat named her first two sons John born in 1799
and William born in 1801.
Does this indicate Catherine’s father was either John or William
Armstrong? She named her first born daughter Elizabeth.
Catherine was 73 yrs. old, when she died in 1849 in Salloon, Magheracross
and was buried in Magheracross C.of Ireland Graveyard.
Any clues appreciated.
