We share these ancestors - my grandfather was Hugh Moore, son of Hugh Moore and Eliza Jane Conway (Lizzie). Very interested to hear from you - I have quite a lot of info on the Moore family from the 1911 census.

Yes, Iím back in NI after many years abroad and my dadís house is a short stroll from that graveyard - Church of Ireland, right? I know we were all Presbyterians, so youíve seen the Mooreís of Hogstown on the Census - there are a lot of Moores in various townlands around Donaghadee but ours are definitely Hogstown as itís cited on my grandfatherís passage to Canada in 1925. Thatís how I found which branch to trace. Which of my grandfatherís siblings are you descended from? Iíll be heading to the graveyard ASAP to find James Agnew Moore and I note someone else on this thread mentioned the grave of W C Moore died May 1918, stone erected by Hugh Moore of Hogstown, our great-grandfather. Can you give me any clues as to the graves approx location in the churchyard?

Iím very happy to pursue this and try to find the other graves etc.

Just remembered - John Moore (b.1824) and Jane Connaway (b.1828) weíre married in Ballycopeland Church (now gone). The graveyard is still there though and Iíve looked around it once but found no Moores or Conwayís. I will however check with the Minister of Millisle & Ballycopeland Church who may be able to help (unless you know more?)

Thank you, that would be great! I could meet you in Donaghadee any day next week apart from Thursday and Friday, maybe just after you drop your grandkids? If you have the time, perhaps you could run your eye over the family tree Iíve drawn up so far and help with further info?

Yes, that suits. The gates at the Cannyreagh Road end or the Moat Street side?
