Hi,
   There is also a townland of Ballyness in the parish of Dungiven. Three families called Black lived there in 1831.

There are 7 townlands (and 5 sub-townlands) called Ballyness in Ireland.

From the 1831 census

10138   Black   Black   Robert   Keenaght   Dungiven      Ballyness

Based on previous postings this must be the father of Jane Black in 1819.

kingskerswell & aghadowey have mentioned the correct the townland of Ballyness in the parish of Dungiven.

There is probably other records of Robert Black. But doubt we could get his lineage further geberations back.

Hello,
I have a copy of a marriage certificate dated 1866 for a William Doherty and Mary Miller (my Grt Grt Grt G'parents).  The witnesses of this marriage were a "Solomon Moore" and "Susan Doherty", in the parish of Tamlaghtfinlagan, Co Londonderry.

Hope this helps someone?

Sorry Marilyn but I cannot remember. I assume that some free newspaper details were available on-line at the time.

Hey, My name is David Moore. My brother is Thomas Robert Andrew Moore. My dad is Robert Andrew Moore and he was born in Garvagh. My sister was also given the middle name Martha because of a family connection I think. Lot of similarities in names there?

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

Lots of Moores in Garvagh area and without an idea of dates its difficult to know which family is your connection. We aren't allowed to post details of living people but if your father is deceased and you can give us an idea of when he was born then we might be able to find more details of your family (the ones from this thread are Drumachose area- near Limavady).
