Many thanks for all that ... I know I posted the same request a while ago, but really I was just hoping that with all the genealogical progress recently, there might be a more clues come to light!
How can I access the Belfast Commercial Chronicle ?

Antrim / John Johnston of Ballymacarrett (1780-1823)
« on: Friday 02 September 16 07:46 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone!
The above JJ was my great x2 grandfather's brother.  He was born about 1780 in Dublin, son of Benjamin Johnston & Catherine nee Graydon.  I don't know when he moved north... apparently he was in the Linen Trade with his cousin Jonathan Sisson, I have never been able to confirm this.
He married a girl called Anne or Anna, perhaps in Dublin , perhaps in Belfast - I have never been able to find her maiden name nor the marriage...  She died in 1820 and is buried in Clifton St cemetery, Belfast (there is no detail of her maiden name).  They had a son John born about 1815 but I have no other information.  Their daughter Anna married Rev Benjamin Maturin .  Another daughter Margaret died young. 
John married secondly Agnes Gemmill in Rosemary St Presbyterian Church Belfast in 1823.  He died in 1833 and is buried in Clifton St.
I realise that I have quite a lot of info but I would really like to find John's first marriage & his wife's maiden name ... and something about his son John ...
Many thanks in advance for your help, Liz Augereau

Monaghan / Re: Henry Vassal JOHNSTON

Hello everyone!  I must apologize for my silence, huge problems with computer when in Ireland.  I am now back in France... I never got to Ballybay, it will have to be next time. 
The Maturin Johnston site, I have put that together with a couple of cousins.  And we wrote the HVJ was buried in Ballybay because we presumed he was, but had no confirmation.
Thank you all once again for your help - as usual, rootschatters are the best !

A thousand thanks to all for your hard work - all the information is the right family ... After Dundalk, they went to Listowel, Co Kerry (1901 & 1911 census) and afterwards my great grandfather retired. I am delighted to have the probable reference to Henry Vassal's birth , a step in the right direction!

Gorse Hill must have been in the family for some time - Emma is my great x2 grandmother!

Monaghan / Henry Vassal JOHNSTON

Hello everyone,
I am lucky to be in Ireland for a few weeks and hope to go to Ballybay Co Monaghan to look for the grave of the above, my grandmother's brother. 
Henry was born on 30th April 1889 at "Gorse Hill", Ballybay and died in February 1891... he is possibly buried in Ballybay, my great grandfather Benjamin Johnston was working at the Bank of Ireland when his son Henry was born.  I have never been able to find a birth cert nor a death one.

My grandmother was born in Dundalk in April 1892, so perhaps the family was already living there in 1891, so Henry Vassal Johnston might be buried in Dundalk.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I really must apologise for the silence, my computer broke down and I only have got it back ....

What I don't understand is how David Stapleton can be in two places, Ballymacelligot and Ballyseedy, unless it is the same graveyard... I plan to go to Ballyseedy anyway and then see if I can find the graveyard in Ballymacellligot.

A thousand thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it - and sorry again for not replying sooner

Apologies, I think I have Christina's death date wrong ... it is in fact July 1869.  It would seem that they are both buried in Ballymacelligot... can anyone tell me where that is, please.
Many thanks in advance,
Liz
