[4qd-bannvalley] Stewart's, McNeill's, Burnside's amd McConnells


My Stewarts also came from the Bann Valley - Killymuck
and Gortin Coolhill.  I went through some files and
found that I have a couple of notes from Pauline
(Australia) and Bernice Thomson who told me of a John
Stewart born in 1865, Kilrea who married Margaret
McNeill, d. of Thomas McNeill and Margt. Burnside. She
was born 10 Feb 1864, Kilrea).  They married 13 May
1885 in Tamlaght O'Crilly and went to Australia.  His
father was Joseph Stewart according to my notes but
you may have more accurate information.

If I dig up anything else I  will let you know.
