Hi Maureen: My wife and I went to Fermanagh County, N. Ireland Spring of 2018. We found many of her ancestors in the Maguires Bridge area. Enlisted the help of a local genealogist who got us pointed in the right direction. Visited a local cemetery and found LARGE headstones laying flat on the ground and they had church records and we visited the farm site where her Armstrongs had actually lived. Also went to PRONI in belfast. Found out that her Armstrongs were border raiders. Some also emigrated to Canada. One of the headstones had actually recorded that information.
Mike Richey- ps. My "Richey's" (Ritchies) are from Tyrone County, haven't found out from where exactly. mrichey56...@gmail.com On Thu, Jan 31, 2019 at 4:15 PM Maureen Baker via CoTyroneList < firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > I have Armstrong ancestors who lived in Gortin and Beltrim, Tyrone County > and some are buried in St. Patricks Church of Ireland (Lower Bodaney). > > > > I’m planning a trip to Ireland, which I’m very excited about and plan on > visiting Gortin (visit St. Patricks Church of Ireland, walk along Main > Street, Gortin Glen Park, locate the property of my grandmother Fanny > Armstrong (1874-1868) her parents and her grandparent’s property.
