  1. The above mentioned grave is that of my Great-Uncles and Great -Aunt. It is situated in Dungiven, Co. Derry, but the name of the church is St. Patrick’s not St. Mary’s.

  2. @Ray
    You mention a Michael McGilligan 1858 and have a headstone from Dungiven.

    I researched a Micheal McGilligan who moved to Hartlepool in Durham England, was a councillor and Landlord. My Grandmother worked in his Pub in 1901.

    any connection?

  3. Frank,

    Perhaps but I have no proof. I do have a contact in Canada who is researching this family. I’ll ask her and get back to you.
