I have cross-referenced all the baptisms, marriages, burials and confirmations of Creggan Parish that relate to my family tree and that are available to me from a range of sources. My primary source was PRONI MIC 1-11. Some names are included only because they also reside in a significant townland - for example, Urker. Many of my notes are not much more than conjecture. Please take them with a grain of salt. In total, there are about 56 pages of transcriptions and notes, and several hundred names are mentioned.

This was one of the headstones in the CORR plot. The stone was weathered, so it could easily have been “Marg.” SOURCE: P18, Guide to Creggan Church & Graveyard.

Ball, John

1809 Aug 2

NOTE: I do not have a date for the John BALL who died in Nassau, Bahamas, son of Thomas BALL (1727-1798) & Phillipa USSHER, so he is one possibility.

1809 Sep 11

Johnston, John

1809 Dec 14

Johnston, Charlie

1810 Mar 27

Johnston, Elizabeth

1810 Jun 20

It is possible that she was the Elizabeth JOHNSTON, dau of Graham JOHNSTON.

It is possible that she was a daughter of Samuel BALL & Mary HOWARD and predeceased their daughter Margaret who died in 1900.

Johnston, William

Age 76

1813 Nov 23

B 1737 It is possible that he was a son of Adam Blair JOHNSTON.

Johnston, Graham

Age 25

1813 Nov 26

b. 1788 There has to be more than one Graham JOHNSTON. There was one who was a son of John JOHNSON (?-1759)

Stephens, Isaac

Creggan

Age 46

1815, Jan 31

 

B 1769 Likely related to Thomas STEPHENS.

b. 1740

Jackson, John

Creggan

Aged 37

1817, June 21

1817, 20 June

NOTE: B 1780 Husband of  Elizabeth McCULLAGH & grandfather of Sir Thomas JACKSON

Johnston, William Edward

Parish of Newry

Age 16

1817 Sep 16

B 1801

Stevens, Thos

Crossmaglen Creggan

Age 50

1823, Jan 20

 

B 1773 This is possibly the husband of both Barbara JACKSON & Martha GILMORE. SEE 1815 marriage.

Gilmore, John

Creggan

Age 70

1823, Jan 22

 

b. 1753 It is possible that he is the J. GILMORE who married Mary JACKSON (daughter of George JACKSON & Margaret O’LAUGHLIN). It is also possible that he was the father of both Samuel GILMORE (1795-1868) and George GILMORE of Coolderry (d 1832).

Wallace, Anne

Urker Creggan

Age 56

1823, Apr 15

 

B 1767 NOTE: I believe that this Anne is actually Jane WALLACE née DONALDSON [SOURCE: Creggan: Guide to Creggan Church & Graveyard]. Why she is indicated here as being at Urker, I do not know. No WALLACE shows up there in the 1828 records, but her husband John WALLACE is also recorded as being from Urker, Clogher. Interestingly, I have another “orphan WALLACE”: in 1839, a Richard JACKSON of Tullyvallen married a Mary WALLACE. Since the DONALDSONS who were Anne - aka Jane - WALLACE's parents were also of Tullyvallen, this starts to get even more interesting.

Kerfoot, Anne

Urker Creggan

Age 40

1824, Feb 14

1824, Feb 12

B 1784. In 1828, there were several KERFOOTs leasing land at Urker.

Johnston, Anna

Dundalk

Daughter of

Graham

Johnston

Age 10

1825, Apr 7

 

 B 1815 This father is likely the Graham JOHNSTON mentioned in the 1817 inventory of John JACKSON’s assets (in relation to a debt).

Wright, James

Cregganban

Age 17

1827 Jan 9

B 1810

Wallace, John

Cloghog Creggan

Age 67

1827, Feb 2

 1827, Jan 30

B 1760. He was the husband of firstly Emelia HOAR and secondly of Jane DONALDSON. His son Robert Grenville WALLACE was born to his first wife in 1786. His daughters Mary Anne(1795), Jane (1806), Margaret(1811) Eliza & Kathleen were from his second marriage.

Wallace, John

Urker Creggan

Age 67

1827, Feb 2

 

Husband of Jane DONALDSON & father of 5 children. Is it possible that although he was of Cloghog, that he died at Urcher? There seem to be two records that I have transcribed. Of course, I may have transcribed in error.

Stephens, Mary

 Drumboe[?]

Age 46

1827, Feb 4

 

B 1781

Donaldson, Alice

 Cloghog

Age 66

1827, Feb 18

 

NOTE: I have two transcriptions of this burial. I suspect that the age at death for this one is the correct age. NOTE:  This is the second record where both Cloghog & Urcher are noted as the given townland. See beneath.

Donaldson, Alice

Urker Creggan

Age 60

1827, Feb 18

 

B 1767 -daughter of Joseph & Anne Donaldson of Tullyvallen, sister-in-law of James Wallace. NOTE: George JACKSON & Margaret McLAUGHLIN had a daughter named Alice who married an unnamed “LOY”. In later years, the LOWE family made their home at Cloghog Lodge.. There was also an unnamed Alice who married a Samuel DONALDSON (1753-1827 – son of William DONALDSON & Agnes). They probably married about 1780 – given that the births of 6 children start in 1783. The latter is a strong candidate for being this person, but this needs to be verified.

Donaldson, Elizabeth Ann

Creggan

Age 24

1827, Jun 26

 

b. 1803. NOTE: Her death is mentioned in 1827 letter from Eliza JACKSON

Donaldson, Samuel

Creggan

Age 74

1827, Jul 4

 

B 1753. I am guessing him to be a Samuel DONALDSON (1753-1827 – son of William DONALDSON & Agnes  the husband of Alice DONALDSON above d. 1827, Feb 18

Oliver, Jane

Creggan

Age 87

1827, Oct 27

 

B 1740 NOTE: Check Deeds - there was an OLIVER with ties to Dundalk. Also Andrew & ELinor OLIVER of Newtownhamilton. Also as a resuly of the OLIVER ELGEE marriage, Joseph & Benjamin OLIVER ended up with lands in Dundalk. And the Turner Barrett OLIVER link

Johnston, Jane

Age 57

1827 Nov 19

b. 1770 The timing would be right for her to be a daughter of Adam Blair JOHNSTON. Another possibility is that she was a wife of John JOHNSTON of Woodvale, and mother of Graham JOHNSTON. See: Johnstons of Woodvale.

Donaldson, Mary

Cloghog

Age 41

1828, Feb 17

 

b. 1787 It is possible that she was the wife of Joseph DONALDSON (1773-1838), or else his sister who had probably died unmarried (b 1769).

Ball, Thomas

Corliss

Age 32

1829 Aug 10

b. 1797 Thomas BALL Esq. Corliss was recorded there in 1828. A Lt. Thomas BALL (1642-1674) was one of those granted land in 1669 – including for Corliss. I do not know the relationship between the two men.

Stephens, Frances

Crossmaglen

Age 60

1829 Dec 6

b. 1769 NOTE: This entry was before an August 1829 entry, so it my be a year earlier.

Donaldson, Samuel

Cloghog

Age 32

1830, May 11

 

b 1798 It is possible that he was a son of John DONALDSON (b abt 1772) and Agnes DOWNS.

Jackson, Elizabeth

Liscalgot

Age 60

1830, May 29

 

B 1770 There is a possibility that she was a daughter of George JACKSON & Margaret O’LAUGHLIN, although she did marry a WORTHINGTON or a SHEA. The projected date of birth of 1770 would fit. NOTE: There is also another JACKSON family connected to Liscalgot that I have yet to fit in.

Coulter, John

Anavacky

Age 27

1830, July 12

 

B 1803 NOTE: I may have a transcription error here. The month may be January since this entry precedes the entry for Samuel Donaldson on May 11.

Wallace, Ann

Dundalk

1831 Dec 12

Possibly related to John WALLACE (1760-1827)

Gilmore, George

Coolderry

Age 44

1832, Jan 10

 

B 1788 One place to look for where he might fit is as a son of Mary JACKSON who married a J.GILMORE (since her father was called “George”). SEE: Burials, Gilmore, John 1828 (therefore b. 1788) The argument for this connection is also strengthened by a daughter Mary Jackson GILMORE born to George GILMORE of Coolderry.

Reed, Dorothea

Rahans

Age 80

1832 Feb 13

b. 1752 Her will was probated In the Index to Prerogative Wills under Dorothea or Dorothy B[radshaw?] REED of Rahans, Co. Monaghan, 1934.

Johnston, William

Dundalk

Age 70

1832 Feb 18

b. 1762 He is in the right age range to be a child of Adam Blair JOHNSTON.

Stephens, Nicholina

Crossmaglen

Age 92

1832, June 15

 

B 1740 possibly a relation of Thomas STEPHENS who married Barbara JACKSON

Johnston, Anne

Coulter, [Illegible]

Dundalk

Age 9

1832, Sept 6

 

b 1823

Ball, Thomas

Urker

Age 77

1832 Dec 14

b. 1755 It is hard to believe that he is not related to Capt. Samuel BALL ( 1757-1843) of Urker, but the Ball Family History does not mention a homas BALL with these dates.

Donaldson, John

Clohog

Age 64

1835, Feb ?

 

b 1771 Would this be the son of William DONALDSON (1723-1811 of Freeduff) & Agnes. If so, he married a Jane and had 6 children

Longfield

Age 87

1839 Jun 4

b. 1752 A son of John JOHNSTON (1729-1816) & Mary Unnamed. See Sept 2, 1830 Deed. Brothers Thomas & James. Brother Thomas died before 1830 and James after 1830. The Longfield connection makes me suspect that the following are related: Dorcas JOHNSTON late of Longfield, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan spinster deceased died 26 Sept 1872 at same place granted to Thomas JOHNSTON of Longfield Esq. brother. Effects under £1,500

Jackson, John

Stephens, George

Crossan

Age 58

1847 Sep 11

 

B 1789. NOTE: I suspect that Crossan  is actually Crossmaglen. Also, that he would likely be related to the George STEPHENS b 1810. This is supiciously close to a Creggan Parish gravemarker: In memory of George Stephens who died the 8th of September 1846 aged 58 years; also his beloved wife Elizabeth Stephens who died on the 9th of February 1869 aged 67 years: "Their end was peace"; erected by their son George as a tribute of afection.

1859, Nov 29

 

This is the infant son of David JACKSON & Eliza OLIVER, youngest brother of Sir Thomas JACKSON. He was born 29 Aug 1858. He died of croup.

Gilmer, John

Liscalgot

Age 67

B 1785 The name BONANON shows up in a few leases with the JACKSONs of Urker.

Stitt, Susan

Freeduff

Age 72

1863, Aug 15

1863 Aug 13

b. 1791. Her will was proved Nov 27, 1863. She was a widow at the time. Effects under ₤100. Will granted to William STITT of Derryfalone (Hacksballcross) Gent & Alexander STITT, Newtownhamilton. I am guessing her husband was John STITT (see above).

Died 1864; son of the late Gordon Holmes R.I.C.”SOURCE: Guide to Creggan Church & Graveyard. NOTE: I had that he died in 1868 and the graveyard record says 1864. I have changed mine to fit.

Gilmore, Samuel

Liscalgot

Age 72

1868, Oct 7

 

b 1796 Given the dates and the townland, it is likely that he was the Samuel GILMORE who married Jane COULTER and had 8 children.

Bernard, Ann Margaret

Urcher

Age 84

1870 Apr 2

B 1786 In the Guide to Creggan Church & Graveyard: In memory of Arthur Adderly Bernard late Major 84th Regt and for 30 years a Magistrate for this country who departed this life 9th March 1861 aged 76 years.

NOTE: She is not the daughter of William DONALDSON & Harriett WALLACE. I am unsure about where she fits – as a wife or widow or a DONALDSON, or born as a DONALDSON. She is likely the one mentioned in a letter November 12, 1873 from Eliza JACKSON. I believe that Sytrim is also known as Sheitrim.

Johnston, Ann

1876, Mar 8

 

b. June 19, 1821 Dr. Richard DONALDSON. The Creggan Cemetery guide shows a date of 1879. NOTE: PRONI has the 1876 date: Letters of Administration of the personal estate of Richard Donaldson late of Sytrim House Crossmaglen County Armagh Medical Doctor deceased who died 4 March 1876 at same place were granted at Armagh to Sarah Cannon Donaldson of Sytrim House Crossmaglen aforesaid Spinster the Sister of said deceased.

Stitt, Margaret

Derryfalone

Age 45

1877, Mar 28

 

b. 1832. Mother of Gordon Holmes STITT. She died when many of her children were quite young and they were raised by her sister-in-law, Mary STITT (who married McBRIDE). This is a good prospect for the woman in the photo “Stitt of Derryfalone” from Gilford Castle. She may be a daughter of William STITT & Susanna.

Reed, James

Rahans

Age 42

1877 May 5

b. 1835 . Probably related to the John Reed who was a landlord and magistrate. He married the niece of Captain James McCullagh, Camlymacullagh, and owned part of the McCullagh estate. There is a memorial to him in Donaghmoyne Parish Church which reads. In loving memory of John Reed Esqr of Rahans for many years churchwarden of this parish. This table was erected by his brother James and William Reed. Related to Dorothea REED (d 1832).

Corr, Mary

Crossmaglen

Age 74

B 1806 A death of a Mrs CORR is mentioned in a letter dated 1880 July 7 from Eliza JACKSON to her son Thomas JACKSON. I suspect she was the wife of William CORR, a grocer in Crossmaglen.

Gilmore, Samuel

Castleblayney

Age 52

1883, Jun 5

 

 

1883, June 1 is the date of death that I have in my family tree. It is corroborated by a letter June 8, 1883 (Eliza JACKSON to Thomas JACKSON). I suspect the date I originally had of 1885 was a transcription error, so I changed it to “1883”. SOURCE: Will Abstracts: GILMORE, Samuel, late of Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan. Surgeon & Physician who d. June 1883 at same place. Will was proved at Armagh by Eliezer GILMORE of Liscalgot (Crossmaglen) Co. Armagh.

Bartley, Sarah

Age 85

B 1798 NOTE: The Sarah JACKSON who married Joseph BARTLEY was b1811. This is a large enough discrepancy in birth dates that I suspect there were 2 Sarah BARTLEYs.

Age 76 Presiding Rev. John Turner

1889, Nov 13

 

B 1814. This is the father of Sir Thomas Jackson. NOTE: The minister Rev. John TURNER was not the minister of Creggan, but of Barronstown. It seems he was not hired by the Creggan congregation - a dispute that probably triggered David JACKSON's quitting Creggan congregation for some time (see undated 1885 letter and Dec 2 1885) . Rev. John Turner, Rector of Barronstown, and formerly Headmaster of the Dundalk Educational Institution, was a learned and successful educationalist, and raised the Institute to a very high level in the educational world. On his retirement he officiated at Killencoole, and also was Acting Military Chaplain at Dundalk Barracks, prior to his appointment to Barronstown. His eldest son, Mr. John Wm. Turner, M.A., is the efficient Agent here to Lord Roden; whilst his second son, Mr. Henry Turner, has been Resident Magistrate in the South for many years- Rev. John Turner died 1897.

b. 1840 Aunt Georgie was a name that Eilie RYDER recalled. Née HENRY. She was the widow of Dr. Samuel GILMORE. SOURCE: Will Abstract: GILMORE, Georgina Victoria Wilhelmina late of Laurel Hill, Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan. Widow who died 5 March 1900 granted to Jane Coulter Amelia GILMORE spinster the daughter. Effects ₤155 16s 2d. She was the daughter of John HENRY – although I don’t have the source for this information.

Donaldson, Elizabeth

Kiltybane

Age 83

1900, Mar 22

 

I am guessing that this is Elizabeth Johanna JACKSON – wife of John JACKSON.  If so, it would accord with a confirmation date as well as a christening date of 1817 – the christening done on the day of her father’s death. "Will of Elizabeth Johanna DONALDSON late of Kiltylane [sic] d. 30 March 1900 granted at Armagh to Eliezer GILMORE, farmer. Effects 45 pounds." NOTE: The burial date is before the death date – something is a bit off here.

b. 1809 NOTE She is likely the Sarah WRIGHT in the 1901 Census who was age 86 (a discrpancy of 5 years with the parish record). She was born in Co. Louth, and was living with her widowed daughter Margaret in Cregganban, Crossmaglen. Her daughter was a "farmer".

b. 1837 He does not appear in the 1901 Census, although there is a listing for a Robert CAULTER. This is an obvious mistransciption. The pdf makes it clear that it was a Robert (age 54) & Eliza COULTER (age 52) who both lived and farmed in Dorsy. They were no longer there in 1911.

At the time of the 1901 Census he was a visitor at 39 Moyola St., home of Sarah A. Tipping. Andrew Tipping was a boarder there. It all fits.
