[1] James HALE There is a Joseph HALE of Crossmaglen, age 70 in the 1901 Census, with a son Joseph HALE, age 29.

[2] Dr. William Scott McBRIDE (1862-1939) married Ethel Sarah GILMORE (1885-1982), a daughter of Eliezer GILMORE (1843-1919) married Sarah JACKSON (1848-1942),

[3] Eliezer GILMORE (1843-1919) married Sarah JACKSON (1848-1942), an sister of Sir Thomas JACKSON

[4] Hugh CORR. In 1910, there was a Hugh CORR who was a postmaster in Crossmaglen, and also a Hugh CORR who was a general merchant with a shop in Crossmaglen. The latter was a draper-merchant, born in Monaghan age 43, and unmarried. I don’t seem to have the relationships of these CORRs to the CORRSs of Urker nailed down yet, if in fact there is a relationship.

[5] Norman McCLEAN (1861-) in the 1901 census was age 40 and one of 3 children of William S. McCLEAN (abt 1822), age 79, living at Cloghoge. The family were farmers.

[6] John DONALDSON of Cloghoge. Just to confound me, there are 3 John DONALDSONs in the 1901 Census in this townland who would be in the right age group. One is Roman Catholic, one Presbyterian, and one Church of Ireland.I suspect they are all related.

[7] Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915)

[8] David GILMORE (1878-1959) son of Eliezer GILMORE above. A David GILMORE shows up on land title in 1935 in Cregganbane.

[9] Joseph HALE of Crossmaglen. NOTE: The 1901 Census recorded a 65 year old Joseph HALE (b abt 1836), wife Lizzie HALE age 46 (b abt 1855), and two relatives: Lily McBRIDE age  12 (b. abt. 1888), and Esther McBRIDE, age 5 (b. abt  1896) in Co. Monaghan. In the 1911 Census, Esther is visiting the family of Robert ADAIR at Carrickaslane, Co. Monaghan. Lilly does not show up with the surname of McBRIDE, but may be already married. There was also a Joseph HALE, son of James HALE (see above). At this point, I cannot be sure which one is referred to.

[10] John J. JOHNSTON of Woodvale Ballsmill. See Johnstons of Woodvale. There was a John JOHNSTON (1830-1897) of Woodvale. More work is needed here.

[11] Rev. Samuel MAYES (abt 1878) of the rectory, Creggan. He is not in the 1901 census, but is age 33 in the 1911 Census.

[12] John [F] JOHNSTON NOTE: I would need to double check the document to be sure of the middle initial.

[13] John T. JOHNSTON NOTE: I would need to double check the document to be sure of the middle initial

[15] John O’CONNOR. Not clear if he was in 1901 & 1911 census.

[16] Robert J. SCOTT. Not in the 1901 or 1911 Census.
