Hi, have you a name in particular you are interested in? There are index searches available of burial records for the church 1697-1899, there may not be any accompanying grave stone though.

I was at that graveyard 3 weeks ago looking for great grandparents graves. What a shame you have only just made this post, I could have looked for you. There is a book, correct name I can't recall at the moment, listing all the graves in Drumholm. I am trying to get hold of a copy and if I am successful,  I will let you know title and where u can get it from. Jan

Hi Jan,

The book you want is called 'The Drumholm Graveyard Handbook' by Sylvia Arkison. However, I have just done a 'search' and cant find a copy for sale. Mine came from a bookshop in Donegal town. I don't know what to suggest - unless you know anyone in Donegal!

Regards,

Carol

Katherine,
I am sorry, I have been away and have only just noticed your post in August re. the names you wanted. There are masses of Morrows and Freebornes and there are also quite a few Moubray/Mowbray. The earliest is Isobel Moubray died 3 Dec 1715. Let me know some names and I will look.

regards,
Carol

Hi Carol,

I have just joined RootsChat after stumbling on this thread in a Google search. I was wondering if you would mind checking the book you mentioned above for any entries for Mackie, McKie, McKee etc. This is such difficult name to research due to all the spelling variants.

My great, great grandfather was James Mackie/McKie married Jane Cassidy in Donegal c1830s. Their son, James b. 1838-1842, emigrated to Australia around 1860. I have tracked the name via the Griffiths Valuation to the Drumhome Parish in the Townlands of Durnesh and Rossnowlagh. I think the family were Presbyterian, because I have had no luck finding other church records.

Any information regarding this family ie. gravestones or burial records would be much appreciated.
