I am researching William and Ann (Clark) ROBINSON of Pettigo. I really don't
have a lot on the family that stayed in Ireland. I have a lot on the one son
who came to Canada, my grgrgrandfather William Robinson.
I do know that my Robinson line had a family farm just outside of Pettigo as
my Grandmother and a cousin have visited it.
There were at least two boys, William born about 1840 and Christopher born
about 1842, with a possibility of a third, Robert. I believe there were two
daughters also, one who went to Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh and opened a
jewellery store the other married!
Is this familiar with anyone??? Hoping to connect and share information.
Any suggestions on how to find distant relatives still in Ireland that might
be able to help?
Thank you for your help and any suggestions and I hope the New Year is good

The Twelve Days of Christmas is one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me.
What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won't come out of the pear tree have to do
With Christmas? Today I found out.
From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as
A catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their
Church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.
The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
Three French hens stood for faith, hope and charity.
The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five Books of the Old Testament.
The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit: Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation,
Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness,
Gentleness, and Self Control.
The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.
The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.
So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening. Now I know how that
Strange song became a Christmas Carol.

The following items or files have been added/updated at the site, look

Death cert info:
district: Killea county: Donegal All Saints (Civil Parish) Corncamble
It appears - based on Mitchell's book on Irish Churches and Graveyards, and a
couple of other sources - that there is only one RC cemetery in All Saints
civil parish. This is at the RC church in Newtowncunningham, based on
Mitchell's book. Now, his book is copyrighted 1990 and so I believe that his reference
is to a former RC church, probably in the eastern end of the town (Colehill
townland). The adjacent graveyard would still be there. The spectacular new
RC church, Church of All Saints, is located at the western end of the town, as
I recall. It was built in 1999, and is similar in style to the also-splendid
Burt Church nearby (Speenoge, I believe). I don't recall seeing a cemetery at
the new church.... but I wasn't really looking <gr>. I did look at possible
church/cemetery locations south of Corncamble, in adjacent Taughboyne civil
parish, but the nearest church - in Haw (Church Town) - is Church of Ireland.
I don't feel particularly confident about the exact graveyard location in
Newtowncunningham town, but I'm quite sure it's there "somewhere".
