It interests me that the sole MENARY entry for Keady is a female. I would suspect that she was a widow, although one cannot rule out an unmarried woman.
The earliest MENARY in our family tree is an Alexander MENARY. It should also be noted that the parish of Derrynoose abuts the parish of Lisnadill (it is just to the west of it). Lisnadill is the parish where known members of our MENARY-connected family lived.
In the transcriptions from the parish registers of Mullaghbrack (a parish east of Lisnadill and still within walking distance from Maghery and Maghery House) there is the record of the birth of a son of John MENARY, named William MENARY born on August 16, 1773. The father was noted as being resident in the townland of Lettery, Parish of Mullaghbrack, Co. Armagh. It would be useful to explore whether this William MENARY had a son called Alexander. Or conversely, whether John had another son called Alexander (maybe a more likely place to look). Other parish registers may help us here.
