Hi, For the marriage of Thomas woods = Maria Bolton 1878, Thomas fathers name was John

Below is a link to the baptismal register of Moneydig Presbyterian Church where 4 births are recorded for the couple (Matching birth records above I think) The Coolnaman referred to is the Townland  (Culnaman)where the family was living its in the Parish of Desertoghill I think

Coolnaman and Culnaman are different versions of the same townland- Cullyman is another.

Here's the family in Coolhill townland (Kilrea parish - but literally across a field from Culnaman) in 1901

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai000610079/

and 1911

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai002811556/

and here's the lane up to house (now in ruins) on Streetview (my grandfather lived there as a child)

http://www.rootschat.com/links/0hkw/

PM me and I'll email you a photo of the old house.

The Woods family living next door in 1901 are still there but are apparently unrelated to your ancestors.

Hi Agahadowey,

On 24 Nov 2011 you replied to a query of mine under the above heading - thanks.  I now have the complete family names which I pass on to share with others. 

Thomas and Maria (Bolton) Woods had 11 (eleven) children all of whom came to New Zealand as a family.  Those children are - Jack, Sloan, Bob, Bill, Dave, Sam, Tom, Jean, Annie Mary, Tillie and Mima.   All these children were born in Co Derry.    Bernard is not a child of this family.

Annie Mary was married to William Torrens (a Derryman) who passed away after they arrived in NZ.  Annie subsequently married John Churchill Crockett from Tamlaght O’Crilly.  Some of her siblings married in NZ into families from the same area who came out about the same time.

Thanks again.  Regards. Dinny.

I saw a good while ago somewhere online that Bernard was an error- although lots of family trees do list him as part of this family. Since this post was started the GRONI indexes have become available online so here's a list of the children-

1. John Dempsey (Jack) 28 Apr.1879     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBQG-CPB
2. Sloan Bolton 9 Sept.1880      https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FB7P-S4S
3. Annie Mary 16 Nov.1882     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FB43-YZK
4. Elizabeth Jane (Jeannie) 24 Aug.1884     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBH4-K35
5. daughter 21 Oct.1886     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBCB-CYW
     possible death? https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FTWR-CZD
6. Robert William (Bob) 12 Nov.1887     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBZV-2Z6
7. Matilda (Tillie) 2 Jan.1890     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBD3-XPK
8. David Smyth (Dave) 5 Mar.1892     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FB6F-2M6
9. Samuel James (Sam) 7 Aug.1894     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBXY-931
10. Jemima (Mima) 24 July 1896     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBNQ-C57
11. Thomas M'Auley (Tom) 26 Sept.1900     https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FBV2-2MW

Robert's middle name was William and there's no William in the birth registrations.

Hi, I'm the great grandson of Sloan (1880). I was wondering if you had any more info on Thomas' parents or further back. I think I read that his grandfather was James but I don't have any dates or other info and I was wondering if you could help.

Thanks
