RE: [Bann Valley] Hello

Hi Sheelagh,
My father-in-law was connected to the McFetridges and I have “Blackrock” Boveedy roots so have details on lots of your relatives (McFetridge, Knox, McClenaghan, Torrens).

William John McClenaghan married Rachel Gilmore Johnston.
* I also haven’t been able to find out where the link to ‘Gilmore’ is with my grandmother’s middle name.  I have to think that her grandmother must have been a Gilmore but can’t find a marriage certificate for John McC?!

Rachel Gilmore (1862-1941) of Carnrallagh, Aghadowey, married (1894) Thomas McFetridge, son of James McFetridge & Margaret Knox. So, your Rachel Gilmore McFetridge was named after her uncle’s wife. I have an old photo of a Margaret McFetridge with a niece which might be her but will take a while to find it. Possibly also an old snapshot taken in the field at Boveedy with a McClenaghan in it as well.

Best wishes, Linda
