Yes there is a presbyterian cemetery in Carrickmacross as I remember my uncle telling me that cemetery was where the protestants were buried.
My father was born in Magheracloone on 12th April 1912 he was one of 11 children born at Derrynascobe

Drum has at least two Presbyterian graveyards.  The oldest is in the center of the village behind the old meetinghouse/school.  The newer one is beside the Drum Presbyterian Meetinghouse, which is still holding services.

I'm curious as to which Presbyterian family name you are researching in Drum.  Perhaps I can be of some help.

I'm researching a number of Co. Monaghan families, including some in Drum (Currin parish) and surrounding area. Surnames:  COLVIN/CALVIN, HADDEN/HADDON, RUSK, KELLS, HENRY, ARMSTRONG, JOHNSTON, ALLEN, NORRIS, and others. Are you there in County Monaghan for look-ups? I'm always glad to exchange information.

Hi Annie

I just came across your post regarding Research on the Kells family name in Co Monaghan.  I know the post was made a few years ago but I was wondering if you would have any available information.  My mother's family all came from the Monaghan/Cavan area (maternal name is Flack).  My great aunt Phoebe Flack is buried at one of the presbyterian churches in Drum and died on 31st October 1993.  She was buried alongside her mother and father.  I'd appreciate any information you might have.

Many thanks.

Michelle,

Do you mean that you'd like to know more about the KELLS family that I'm researching? Was your great-aunt Phoebe FLACK born a KELLS, married to a KELLS, or was she the daughter/granddaughter of a KELLS? Or did you mean that you're only looking for information on the FLACK family in County Monaghan? I'm glad to help if I have anything about your families.

Hi Annie

Sorry that message was a bit over the place.  My grandfather Thomas KELLS married Margaret Jane FLACK.  His parents were Francis KELLS and Margaret Jane?? FAULKENER.   Phoebe FLACK would have been his sister-in-law.   He was one of about 13 children, these included John Joseph KELLS who was killed on 1st July 1916 in WW1.  Other siblings included Richard, George, Eliza Jane and David.  David was the youngest member and he was a tailor/outfitters assistant who opened his own clothes shop "SD KELLS" which his son Roy and grandsons now manage.  The family farmed at a place called Neddiaugh but I am unsure if this was in Monaghan or Cavan.  I know that my great-grandfather Francis KELLS had uncles (possibly brothers) who emigrated during the famine.  Some of them went to the US and some went to New Zealand.  I am just trying to find out as much information regarding the KELLS family in general as from what I can gather it is an unusual name for that area.  Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
Michelle

Annie, what Armstrong names do you have in the Parish? Have you ever come across a John Armstrong married to a Hannah Matthews, possibly around 1830/40's (they had at least one daughter, Elizabeth Jane born c1843)?
