Hello to Everyone,
It’s been a long journey with Teena from the days of the original Co. Tyrone
List all those years ago, and I admire her dedication to helping people with
Co. Tyrone roots. I wish both Teena and Tammy all the very best with this new
My family research started in 1889 in Sydney, Australia when Robert WILLIS b.
1859 in Cohannon, Killyman, Co. Tyrone married Elizabeth LOVE born about 1862
in Co. Armagh. Much to my surprise, I found that in the late 1700’s BOTH
families attended the same church in Killyman. I have often wondered whether
Robert and Elizabeth knew one another when they were younger, even though
Elizabeth’s family moved to Scotland in the 1870’s.
Names in my direct line are – WILLIS, BROOKS, FRASER, LOVE, WILSON, PICKEN and
Robert’s father Robert WILLIS b.1820 married 3 times – first to Jane CLARKE
(from Drumglass) in 1843, then to Mary BROOKS (from Ballynakelly) in 1850 and
then to Mary Jane DUNN (from Brigh) in 1865.
The branches of my tree have many more Co. Tyrone and Co. Armagh names.
On my maternal direct line, I have DUNLOP and McGUIGAN in Co. Antrim.
