Hi,

I thought it said Jordanstown as well at first.

However, i've had another look at it close up and have compared the letters to the other writing on the page - the page looks like it was completed in the same had

I now think that the first letter is a P and the fourth and eighth letters are a T.

So I think that it now says Porterstown.

There's is a Porterstown in Ireland but I can't seem to find one in Donegal, so i'm still really much in the same situation.

Cheers,
Warren

Hi Elaine

Would you know how to paste James Gallacher's address from Donegal onto a posting here ?

Thanks,
Warren

Hi Elaine

If you could yeah that be great

I was thinking if its not too much trouble, if you could post it in here, (the GALLACHER posting)
and also create a new one and call it something like

Porterstown, Jordanstown, Torrenstown in Donegal - Does anyone know of these ?

or something like that

Thanks a lot,

Cheers,
Warren

Looks like Porterstown but there no townland in Donegal with that name that I can find. There are 5 Porterstowns in Ireland in other counties.
See www.thecore.com/seanruad to search for townlands in Ireland. Be sure to change default setting from exact match. I searched for townlands in Co. Donegal ending in 'town' with nothing coming close and then townlands in all Ireland ending in 'terstown.'
Other possibility is that the place is Porterstown in Co. Donegal but that it's the local name for an ear rather than a townland name.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
