Does anyone know if "North Ireland" was the designated ID
Penninsula or all of County Donegal?
I have a brief history of my ancestors who are reported as having left
"Ballymona, in North Ireland" in 1818.
We know they left from County Donegal -- one of the early 20th Century
family historians was the grand-
daughter of the youngest child when they left there and was able to get
THAT MUCH from her.
I was wondering if "Ballymona" was actually "Ballymoney" -- with a
pronunciantion "Bally-mo-na" with the
"o" with a long sound, and the "a" at the end a long sound? From
deed in 1828, I learned that they named their farm "Horn Head." Wouldn't
this have been in the area of Ballymoney?
I've been grappling with this for about 8 years now, but never asked this
group this question until now.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thank youo kindly.
