[4qd-bannvalley] McAlisters of Farrintemple Glebe, Garvagh.

Hugh, I recall that there was a man McAlister who drove a breadcart for my 
G,G, Uncle John Jackson. John had a bakery in Garvagh and sometimes he 
delivered the bread via Horse and Cart and I remember my fathers cousin Jim 
Torrens telling me many a story and I remember him mentioning about this man 
McAlister and I think Jim also mentioned his connections.

It could be possible that this man came to the Garvagh area from the 
Kilraghts or Dervock area in Co Antrim , Have you tried the Ballymoney 
website at www.ballymoneyancestry.com  ??  You might find more information 
there !!
My Great, Great Grandmother was a Nancy McAlister daughter of James, she 
Married John Cameron at Roseyards Presbyterian Church, East of Ballymoney 
about 1861. According to her Marraige Certificate she was living at "The 
Stroan" which was either near Dervock or the Stroan near Armoy Co Antrim.
Due to the two Townlands of the same name I seem to have hit a brick wall 
with the McAlisters so I can sympathise with you on the McAlister family.

I will ask Jim again about that story regarding the McAlister and the 

Best Wishes,
