Iskaheen graveyard old
« on: Friday 28 October 16 16:35 BST (UK) »
I recently found from IrishGraveyards.ie web site, what I believe is the grave of my great-grand parents John and Elizabeth Porter along with their daughter Sarah on the Iskaheen Graveyard Plot No. 54 Section Old. Also buried there are:

James Heaney died November 1934, Hugh Porter died December 1935, James Porter, Thomas Porter died March 1922, Lawrence Porter

I know Elizabeth died 29 Dec 1931 in Iskaheen age 71 and Sarah 22nd Dec 1898. John I have no death dates I estimated it after 1911, The 1911 census has him aged 68.
Does anyone have any more information on this grave and any information on the other names buried there as I know John was an only child and that maybe Hugh Porter was at the same school as my grandfather Robert Porter; Carnamoyle National School, Muff, which I gathered good information from Donegal Genealogy Resources on the Porters. I don't know who the others are and why they should be buried there.

Any help would be appreciated
