Thanks so much Dave! I've forwarded your note to my new cousin to see what he thinks.
It's always exciting to find another cousin & open up an old brick wall.

Newtown Butler is in the parish of Galloon. However, you’re still in the Civil
Registration period and Galloon is covered by two Registration Districts (which were based
upon the Poor Law Unions), those of Lisnaskea and Clones.
The Indexes to the Irish Civil BDMs are available on Family Search 1864-1958 (except
Northern Ireland 1922-1958).
There is an Emily Johnston whose birth is registered in Lisnakea in the December quarter
of 1903 who is most probably “yours”.
Johnston, Emily Dec. 1893 Lisnakea V:3 P:142

Subject: FERMANAGH-GOLD Johnston in Newtown Butler
I've just made a connection with an Elliott cousin in Canada. He says his grandmother
was born in Newtown Butler, Fermanagh about 1890-1892. Her marriage record in Toronto,
Canada says she was a widow - so we don't know if her surname is her deceased
husband's name or her maiden name. Here is what I know:
Name Emily Johnston
Spouse George J. Elliott
Father William Johnston
Mother Frances Love/Lone
Witness Samuel Andrew Hilliard
Witness Emily Irvine
Any suggestions on where in Newtown Butler we might search for her? Thanks so much
