  1. Dear Curator,

    I am looking for family grave for William Gray, stonemason, formally of Garvagh. Are you able to identify any family graves for us?
    Kind regards Anna Johnson

    1. Hi Anna,

      Unfortunately, I don’t have a William Gray grave in either First or Second Presbyterian grave yards or in the Church of Ireland graveyard in Garvagh. This, of course, does not mean that he isn’t there, it just means that on headstone was erected. He may, of course, be buried elsewhere. Sorry, I couldn’t be more help.

      Best regards,

      Denver

  2. I am in Canada writing a short book about the Shirley family that lived in Rhee Townland.
    I have a record of the below ‘John Mooney Shirley’ marrying Rachel Cochrane in 1864 in 2nd Presbyterian Meeting House, Errigal Parish and am wondering where the ‘Presbyterian Churchyard Burial site might be.
    Presbyterian Churchyard Burial:
    “John Mooney Shirley 1840 – 1910; Rachel Shirley 1843 -1921 also their children…Robert Shirley 1865 – 1866; William Shirley died Oct 30, 1930 (60yrs) Robert Shirley, died April 7, 1944 (75).”

    Also I have a record of the below ‘Robert Shirley’ marrying Margaret Harper in the same church in 1846 and again not sure of the exact site where they are buried.
    The Presbyterian Church yard:
    “In memory of Robert Shirley, died Mar 31, 1901 (91yrs); Margaret Shirley, died Oct 24, 1892 (73 yrs) Elizabeth C. Loughery, died Sept 17, 1919 (67 yrs); Mary Jane Shirley, died Jan 11, 1922 (61 yrs); William Hull, died Feb 26, 1914 (72 yrs); Margaret A. S. Hull, died Dec 28, 1910 (19yrs); Lizzie C. Hull, died May 31, 1934 (33 yrs); Catherine Hull, died Dec 5, 1956 (94yrs).”
    I noted Margaret Harper’s parents in Grave # 18 transcribed by you.
    Can you help locate the Presbyterian Churchyard burial sites?
    Many thanks in advance, Dave Robinson.
