  • I wonder if some of my Liston ancestors are buried here. They were living in Logavinshire in the early 1800s. I believe I descend from a man named John Liston of that place. Other Listons there were Michael, Patrick, James, and Thomas (my 2 great grandfather). Patrick, James, and Thomas were brothers. Their sister Margaret married John Gleeson around 1843. They emigrated to Litchfield, Connecticut, where James and Patrick also went in 1848-1850. Thomas emigrated in 1841 to New Brunswick, Canada. He died there of cholera in 1854, but had three children. James and Patrick went on to Bloomington, Illinois. I believe there was also a sister Mary, who married James Walsh around 1845. I don't know if they stayed or emigrated. The Walshes and Gleesons were other families recorded in Logavinshire at the time of the Tithe Applotments, Griffiths, and the poverty-relief loans.
