Re: [Bann Valley] Re: Surnames McKay and Gamble from Lislea

    Hi, I'm the gr gr granddaughter of Mary Keenan born in 1841 in Innisrush, Portglenone, NI. Her father's name was James. Do you have any information on your Henry Keenan as far as any siblings? Mary married Henry Boyd and the are both buried in Tamlaght O'Cilly Upper cemetery at the church in Innisrush. I had the opportunity to visit NI last year and visit the area. 
By the way, Henry Boyd had a sister that married a Gamble. That Gamble family had some children that moved to Pennsylvania and spent time with the Boyd family that moved to the same area.
