Can anybody put me in touch with a committee or other member of this Society? I shall be in Cookstown 21-24 June 2007 and want to do some historical famiyl research there
Hi does anyone know an old friend of mine called david ghent who lives in cookstown his post code is BT80 8QT just need an address or phone number. regards ken from england
My great-grandfather, Terence McAleer (b.1821), son of James McAleer (b.1792) and Sarah Ann Lagan, lived “four miles from Cookstown” until he was eleven at which point he, his mother, and sibs emigrated to the U.S. to join James who had gone before. I’m wondering what kind of education he would have had before he left Ireland. He had a great love of learning, and a fine poetic way of expressing himself.
William Magill of Dunmore House (1792-1881) married Mary Ramsay of Claggan in 1832. William was Presbyterian.
Does anyone know where Mary is buried and if there is any inscription or dates on her grave?
My grandfathers birth certificate 1882 shows him born at/near Shivey, Cookstown. Does Shivey still exist? I am in Cookstown in Sunday 19/11 (pm) and wonder if anyone can help?
Retired headmaster of the Royal School Raphoe Thomas Alfred Armstrong and wife Juanita (Anita).
They retired in 1935 and went to live at Derrylonan House Cookstown.
Thomas died in 24/1/1967 at Moyle Hospital Larne but can’t find anything of his wife or were they are buried. His wife was my great aunt her maiden name was Atkinson from Whitehead. So just wondering could help find the last piece of the family tree. Many thanks Peter
