Hi,
    From a local newspaper, The Londonderry Sentinal Marriage announcements, dated 29 Aug 1839. " 21 August 1839 by the Rev Samuel Butler, Mr John Fleming of Drumavally to Miss Sarah Ross , sixth daughter of Mr. William Ross of Ballymulholland".
     The areas mentioned are in the district of Magilligan, about 17 miles north of Dungiven and the Rev. Butler was minister of Magilligan Presbyterian Church at that time.

Regards

Hi,
   Only a little more. In the Griffiths Valuation of 1858 John Fleming rented a 43 acre farm in Drumavally and William Fleming rented a 49 acre farm in Ballymulholland. The landlord in both cases was Sir Fredrick Heygate.

Meant to mention that elizabeth and james greene returned to derry in 1871 and stayed till about 1874. My grandfather william james greene was born there and his birth on jan 1 1873 was registered in dungivan . They returned to canada .

Hi,
    This may be a coincidence but I found a record of a marriage in 1823 of David Ross and Jane Greene in Bovevagh Presbyterian church. This church is about two miles north of Dungiven.
