[4qd-bannvalley] Regarding: Gilmore, Kennedy, Giffin families

Ian, I do the e-mail writing for my husband Ted.  It is his Kennedy
family that we are researching.  Ted tells me that your dates are too
late for his family.  He also says that he has no "McNeill" names.
We will watch for them though.

Thank you for writing to us.  Ted and Freda Noble

Hi Freda
My G-g-g-grandfather Daniel McNeill married a Betty Gilmore in
Aghadowey. They were both born about 1760.
Their son William married married a Jane Kennedy - I am looking for
more info on them.
Their son John (my g-g-grandfather), b 1790, married a Sarah
Roxburgh, b ABT 1795, in John Brown's Presbyterian Church Aghadowey.
They had 11 children, 8 girls and 3 boys.
My father's notes say: "Lived 18 years in Trivaleagh (Crevalea).
Landed in Boston, Mass., USA on 6 Jun 1852." I have not located this
on any lists.
He was with most of his family. They ended up in Millbury Mass (on
1855 census) working in the cotton mills.
Their female offspring seemed to marry those who had also travelled
from "home" - names like Young, Caldwell, Boyce, Paterson, Watson and
My G-grandfather John had gone to Scotland in 1851 and married Sarah
I hope this may be of use. Please let me know if the McNeill name
pops up anywhere!
