| I have a copy of a birth certificate for John KIRKPATRICK (spelled 'Kilpatrick', though I believe this is probably an error by the Registrar), born in "Knocknakeiragh, Ballyrashane" on January 26, 1879.
He was the eldest child of my GGGrandfather, William Gray KIRKPATRICK (b. January 18, 1857) and Hester McILREAVEY (many spellings found for this surname), who lived in Knocknakeeragh until William left Ireland about December 15, 1879, arriving in America in January, 1880.
William's father's name was John.
I am very eager to find any leads on the family at this period in time, or indeed any descendants still living in the area who would be willing to chat and share information.
