If you go to Wikipedia and put in "Fermanagh Townlands," under "T" you
will see several possibilities including Tonyteige. I agree the best
possibility is Tonyteigh. A t might possibly be mistaken for r and
mistranscribed. Cleenish is just over the hill, the other side of Boho.
There's no Achesons listed for in Tonyteigh for Griffith's Valuation, so
maybe he was the last of the line there.
I don't think his proximity in the graveyard is a coincidence.
