Hi All,

Brand new to the forum here, as I stumbled on this post during research.

I am also researching McDaid/McDevitt and Fullerton lines of Buncrana.

I am trying to find the birth date and parents of Teresa Given (I think maiden name Fullerton) died 2003 in Buncrana and buried at St Mary Corkhill.

Can anyone with a better understanding of these families please help me out with this information?

Regards, Rose

Hi Rose,
do you know what age she was when she died? Do you have any other information, e.g a parent's name or whereabouts in Buncrana?

Hi Tirconnell,

Thanks for your reply. The only other information I have is from Ancestry, which has a transcription of the memorial at St Mary Corkhill, Buncrana, which lists Teresa's sister as Ellen Fullerton (died 7 JANUARY 2005) and brother as Alex Fullerton (died 9TH OCTOBER 2003). I don't have birth dates or any other information. 

I think there will be a McDaid connection to one of her parents, but not 100% sure.

Thanks again, Rose.

Hi Rose,
I have found the grave photo on Irish graveyards site and on the photo, there are more names and the place that they were all from - Meenaward.
I also discovered a marriage of Alexander Fullerton to Kate McDaid on 04 June 1922, do you think this pair are the likely parents of Teresa?
If so, reply to this as I can then private message you (you need to have 3 posts for a pm), I may have some good news for you and can send you the links.

Hi again,

Thank you for looking into this for me. I would really appreciate any info you have. 1922 marriage sounds about right, so might be a good lead.

Thanks again, Rose.

Hi there. I have McDaids from Sledrin near Buncrana if that rings any bells?
