Hi Bob

Have you any other details? I am related to Elliotts and Clark/es from the Letterkenny area but I don't have that marriage in my records.

Regards

Hello Joe:  James Elliott and Ann Clark were my great-great-grandparents.
James was born about 1801, parents might have been David Elliott and a Barbara, but surname not known.  Ann was born about 1803 . Parents were Robert Clark and Margaret Clark, same surname. First child was Margaret Anne Elliott, baptised Raphoe Cathedral, Feb 1829. Record showed parents lived in Dromore, Taughboyne Parish . I wonder if James and Ann were living with her parents. Child named Margaret follows naming pattern, first child named after grandmother. Second child was Stephen, born 1833, no details. Third child was Jane, born 1835. Married in Glasgow 1855, showed Church Hill as birth place.  Family moved to Glasgow in 1836. Fourth child was James, born Glasgow 1837. Then Robert, born Glasgow 1841. Then my great grandfather, Joseph Stopford Elliott born 1847 Glasgow. James and Ann minister who married them in Letterkenny in 1825 was Dr. Joseph Stopford. Probably Conwal church. Believe he is buried there.
Hope this is of some use to you. I plan to visit Letterkenny in September.  Bob Elliott

Hi,
 sorry a little slow getting back to you, I got a chance to check my sources but unfortunately I don't see a connection, my Elliotts go back to a Robert Elliot (b.1800) recorded in a marriage record of his son James Elliott Raymochy, Donegal. My Clarkes lived in the townland of Roughan, parish of Conwal, near Letterkenny but the names Ann or parents, Robert and Margaret don't appear on my tree either.

Regards
Joe

Thanks for getting back to me. This is the story of my searching, lots of Elliott's and Clark's , but not in the right place. Do you live near Letterkenny ? I wrote two Elliott men in Letterkenny, about a month ago;  I got their addresses from the phone book, but no replies . Bob Elliott

 :)  :) Looking for information on Margaret Elliot born about 1810 to parents James Elliot and Catherine Reilly.

James Elliot was a shoemaker. Not too sure where Margaret was born in Ireland but in 1845 she was living in Cavan.

James Elliot has been my brickwall for a very long time.  ::) ::)

Hello Joe:  I was in Letterkenny a couple of weeks ago. Met a Robert Clark. His address is Roughan, New Mills, Letterkenny, County Donegal. Unfortunately he doesn't have a computer.
You might get something from him if you write him. You can mention my name. Bob Elliott

My James Elliott was married to Ann Clark.
I was in Letterkenny a couple of weeks ago. I am pretty sure they were from a community called Cleive Glebe, but I have no proof in print.
