Hi Alison et all
Just back from a weeks vacation in the Galloway Dumfries area
No I was doing no research
But while I was there visited Wigtown,
Scotlands book town
The local church contains some of the covenanter "Martyrs" graves
And the Matyrs stake is close by in the bay
At the stake two women Lachlane and Graham were drowned
And one of the graves contains the remains of three men who were hanged
William Johnston
John Milroy
George Walker
As many of you know these surnames of similar spelling can be found in
the Bann valley
And what struck me at the time walking through the churchyard that I
might as well have been walking through a churchyard in Kilrea
If anybody wants pics of the above just email me
