Curristan (Corristan)
« on: Thursday 11 October 12 21:38 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find out some information about a family of Curristan who lived in Cormullion/Moyne region of Donegal. I know Edward Curristan married Katherin Mullin (dau of Owen Mullin). Edward's daughter Sarah(Sally) married a Michael McGrath of Ballykillown, Laghey and their son, John married Sarah Gillespie.
Have found out that the family of Curristan's originally came from Leitrim abt. 1790's.
Would be delighted to hear from anyone with information.

It would have been helpful to have been given an idea of dates.

Is this the Michael McGrath & Sarah Curristan mentioned in your post?

Perhaps John son of Michael & Sarah?

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

This is a couple of yeas old now so I don't know if you are still reading this, if you please reply here as I'm a descendant of Michael McGrath and Sarah Curristan (my grandfather's grandparents) who lived in Ballykillown and can put you in touch with a member of the family who has done extensive research on the Curristan family.

Yours
