Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone can help me with information about my G.Grandmother Bridget O'Brien (1869-1906)

1890 Bridget married my G.Grandfather Henry Devenny (1866-1942 from Gortnarney, Balteagh, Drumsurn), at St Patricks, Dungiven Parish.  Witnesses William McAteer and Ellen Crilly.

Census 1901 they resided in Lislane, Balteagh
Henery Devennie 33yo Agricultural Labourer, Bridget 32yo, William 9yo, Henery 8yo (my grandfather), Marry 6yo, Matilda 4yo, John 1yo. Census spellings !!!!!

After Bridget died (1906), Henry married Mary Sharkey (1869-) from Donegal in 1908, St Matthew's, Dungiven. Witnesses Henry Mullan and Rachel Douglas.

1911 Census they resided Terrydremont South
Henry Devenny, Mary 40yo, William, Henry, John 12yo, Francis 6yo.

I think my GG Grandfather was John Devenny/Devine/Diveny (1831-1902) from Cloughan, Balteagh. married to Anne Jane McTeer/McAteer/McTyre.

Can anyone help me go back further with O'Brien, Devenny, McAteer families from this area.
