  • I assume the family was Church of Ireland. Inisclin is in Drumkeeran parish. The UHF site lists 3 graveyards in the parish. One RC, one Methodist and Drumkeeran Church of Ireland which is in Tubbrid townland. Have you tried there? William was a farmer and therefore more likely to be able to afford a gravestone. (The average labourer was usually buried in an unmarked grave).

    PRONI has Drumkeeran Church of Ireland burial records up to 1943. The couple may be in those.

  • Thanks Elwyn.

    Isabella and her husband, William Matthew Shaw, had mentioned Donegal in some of their early documents in New Zealand. Her brother James family... in the 1901/11 census... list religion as Church of Ireland.

    I found this for James, so will broaden my search to Donegal/Pettigo.…
