Robert Kelso
« on: Sunday 25 August 13 00:59 BST (UK) »
Looking for info on Robert Kelso or his family born in Ireland around 1836 I think maybe around Fallohogey. His children, Joseph, William, Daniel, Mary Maria and David immigrated to Australia from 1877, Joseph married Matilda Graham in 1877 at Tamlaght O’Crilly and come to Townsville Queensland, with William in 1877 aboard the Scottish Bard. I think Roberts’s wife's name was also Matilda. Any help would much appreciated.

Hi,
   A bit of a long shot but a Robert Kelso married Esther Boggs in Churchtown Presbyterian Church, Tamlaght O'Crilly in 1849. This is close to the townland of FALLAHOGEY.

Welcome to Rootschat.

Fallahogey is near Kilrea and in County Londonderry- you can use 'report to moderator' to have the topic moved to the Derry/Londonderry board.

This house was in Fallahogey and would be typical of that area- and there were/are Kelsos in the area:

This is either your website or another family member looking for Robert & Matilda Kelso?
gdavis.id.au/family/p00137.htm#11138

This will give you a rough idea where Fallahogey is (from memory present day Fallahogey Rd. runs through it)-
https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=fallahogey+road+kilrea&ie=UTF-8&hl=en
From where they lived they could have gone to numerous churches if Presbyterian- 1st Kilrea, 2nd Kilrea, Boveedy. Churchtown, Swatragh, Portglenone...

Tamlaght O'Crilly records coming soon (might be useful)-

PRONI (Public Records Office of Northern Ireland) have lots of Kelso Will Extracts - put in Kelso, select Londonderry Registry, then search- lots of entries for the area you are looking for-
http://applications.proni.gov.uk/DCAL_PRONI_WillsCalendar/WillsSearch.aspx

Will have a look through some records and see if I find anything on Robert & Matilda Kelso and their family.

Chasing any information on James Alexander Kelso, born Tamlaught  Londerry 1798 and died there in 1850, only Kelso I can find might be related to Robert.

Hi,
   I can find a James Alexander Kelso who may have been related to Your James. He married Eliza Jane McNeill in Tamlaght O'Crilly Upper Church of Ireland in 1901..
