Looking for Quinn
« on: Saturday 07 April 18 01:28 BST (UK) »
Hello,
My ggggrandmother was born in 1852. Her gravestone inscription record says her place on birth was Carrow Reel . She was buried in Derry cemetery. Her parents are unknown. I am thinking one may be a Quinn. Does anyone know where Carrow Reel is? Any suggestions of where to search?

Thanks
Kathy Duffy

Hello Kathy and welcome to rootschat.

I wonder if the place of birth was actually Carrowkeel, Co Donegal? Some descriptions of the village and surrounds in 1844 can be found in this book "A Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland"

What was her name?

Thanks for quick reply. You are probably right. I thought I saw something once that mentioned Donegal.
I have a DNA match from someone with the name Quinn or Hanley in their background. We are just one generation off. My GG grandmother was Mary Quigg. Born 1852. Buried in Derry cemetery. There are three family plots and one grave is for Ann Deery who has Quinn listed as parent. Mary was married to James Duffy at StEugenes in 1876. Her marriage certificate lists her father as McQuig. No mother name. I am pretty certain that my ggg grandmother is the missing connection. Thanks for any help.

Might be an idea to move this to the Ireland board, lots of knowledgeable people there who may be able to help you. I'll ask a moderator to move this thread.  ;)

Have you tried contacting Derry City Cemetery to see if names of parents are listed?
