[4qd-bannvalley] GILMORE, THOMPSON, from in or near Londonderry, NIR; 1750-1800


Thanks for that info. My wife has several related
families from that area of Ulster so i think we are on
the right track. She has GILMORE, THOMPSON, BOWMAN,
and ALEXANDER. All of these families tended to use
surnames as middle names for some of their children.
