Dr Henry Maturin JOHNSTON Stranorlar
« on: Thursday 16 July 15 09:23 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone ! 

I hope to be able to get to Stranorlar next week and would like to find graves of this Johnston family.
Dr HMJ died in 1932. His son Victor is probably buried in Stranorlar too.  I know the family was Church of Ireland but they may have attended the presbyterian church too... How many graveyards are there in Stranorlar ? I would really appreciate any help so that when I get there, I know where to look !!!
Liz

Thank you both for your help ... it is much appreciated.  Yes, to the last message, it is my site.  Lots of information about Dr HMJ, he was quite a character,  but unfortunately no one in the family knows where he is buried exactly ...

Unfortunately Presbyterian churches almost never keep burial registers. Have you checked for newspaper death notices or obituaries? Sometimes they list a place of burial.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
