Hi Sinann, I'm certainly getting email messages about today's replies, which is great, but didn't get emails about Hallmarks posts dated the 18th.
Cheers

So you're just ignoring me??   :o ;D

I'm certainly not ignoring you Hallmark :) and especially not when you mentioned being at Lisbellaw cemetery just a few days ago! Is there any chance that you'll go past there again soon?? Thanks for the photo. It certainly convinces me that the tombstone is still there, but I can't read those last few crucial words. Actually, the transcription I've heard about had a question mark after age 13. Now if it actually reads age 23 instead of 13 that would put Charles's dob back to about 1795 too.

Thanks Hallmark, They certainly respond quickly on that thread too! However, I still need someone to go and read Charles's details very carefully for me. I guess it isn't the done thing on this forum to ask for the name of an experienced researcher in Fermanagh that I could employ to go to Lisbellaw and read it for me? Personal message me perhaps?

Well it is just this that needs clarity.

I know what it looks like to me but....

Do you have inscriptions for the Betty headstones there?

Hi Hallmark and co.
Yes we have the transcription. It's available in the Fermanagh cemetery records at findmypast.com for example. The image there shows a chap armed with water sprayer and scrubbing brush, so I'm sure he made a good job of the transcription given that it's so faint.  I've now obtained the death record for Charles's younger brother Archibald Beatty of Farnamullan who died in 1869 aged 72, so would have been born about 1797! This strengthens my theory that Charles had to have been born mid 1790s. If anybody gets a chance to examine the dates on that tombstone to see if they could be interpreted to support this, I'd be very grateful.
