David Gilmore, Drumeene, Co.Derry, N.Ireland
« on: Tuesday 31 March 09 11:55 BST (UK) »
I am trying to get more information on David Gilmore who was my paternal grandmother's father.  My grandmother, Maggie Gilmore was married on 21st March 1912 in Crosgar Pres. Church ( Parish of Macosquin).  On the marriage certificate her father is listed as  a labourer living in Drumeene Co.Derry, N.Ireland.  Drumeene is near Kilrea and may be in the townland of Culnaman (also Coolnaman) or the adjacent townland.  The witnesses at the marriage were James Calvin and Annie Taylor.
Can anyone help?
Thankyou
McCahon, Gilmore &Culnaman

Welcome to Rootschat.
The marriage actually lists the bride's residence as Drumeen and Samuel McCahon from Culnaman. Think I have note's on Maggie's family but will have to check where I've filed them. I do know that I have notes on some of Maggie's children but as it's recent information I will wait until you have enough posts (3) so I can send you a PM (personal message) offline.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
