Hello Heather
Thank you for your reply.
I visited Buncrana earlier this year and met relatives I have just found.
I need to get the family tree in front of me to check generations but I think your Elizabeth was my grandfather's first cousin.  It gets quite confusing as the same first names were used by all  branches of the family and passed down.
I have photos of the old farm house where my great grandfather David McClure lived before immigrating to Australia.
Are you still in Ireland? Does your family have any old photos? I have copies of some (including your husband's grandmother - I think) but none of my great grandfather.
Cheers
Sally

Hi Heather and SMCCR.  I am a cousin of George McClure Baldrick. David McClure was actually from High Carren, Ballynashannagh on the Fanad Peninsula. There were 5 siblings.  His father was William and his mother was Sarah McIlwaine. He was a brother of Elizabeth, my great grandmother. I don't know if he ever lived in Buncrana unless he stayed with Elizabeth for a while.  He had another sister Mary Ann who married a William Porter from Buncrana too. David's brother William also had a son called David and I think this David was wittness at my grandparents wedding. David had another sister Sarah who went to Australia and married a Robert Learmonth. She died in Boolte, Victoria. There were 10 children in that Learmonth family that I have recorded. His sister Isabella also went to Australia and married a George Robson.  I have not found out anything on this family.  I have 8 children recorded for David, 7 children for William, 6 for Elizabeth, and 9 for Mary Anne.
