Thank you BallyaltikilliganG. I have certainly got more to work on now. The mention in your post of a Felix and Margaret is interesting as my James had two children by those names, and they do tend to be repeated within families.

Just out of Interest - I have Cowan's in my tree - Bridget Cowan who married Dennis O'Higgins on 1 March 1834 in Drumgooland upper, Co Down

One of the witnesses on the marriage record is a Mary Cowan.

She died in Ballymagreehan in 1896 aged 88.

Her children scattered across the UK - son Matthew in Liverpool, son John in Cumberland, Son Dennis in Ayr, Scotland possibly a daughter Rose in Canada.

I have a DNA test on Ancestry and Gedmatch if anyone thinks they might be connected!
