William McGreece and wife Jane Cashore [Cashon] were married at Tubrid Church, Kesh 19th July 1826 and  have 4 children's baptisms recorded at Tubrid Church, Kesh, Fermanagh

            Anne Jane b 1833, Alexander b 1835, John b 1838, Thomas b 1841

However 2 earlier children, Sidney [female] b c1827 and William b c1829 birth places are not known  and am unable to find a birthplace, accurate date and parent details for William or Jane; family records indicate Wm born 1804/ 1805

           Other instances of this family name occur in Spinning Wheel records, Tithe Books;  Hugh and Patrick but no connection known

Have a burial record for Sidney McGreece 29/4/1859,  Boa Island, Templecarn, Donegal.   [ Definitely not Sidney b 1827, married Patrick Gallagher /Gallacher and died in SCT ]   So assume may William's  [ b 1804 ] mother given naming patterns

Alexander McGreece b 1835 and Margaret Graham married 1st May 1856  Tubrid Church, Parish of Drumkerran, Co Fermanagh  [ Tubrid Church records]

    Alexander, son of William McGreece and Jane Cashon [Cashore] b 30th Aug 1835 [Tubrid Church records] and Margaret, dau of William Graham and Jane or Anne Kennedy? [ uncertain of Margaret's mother]  b 8th Mch 1836  Curraghmore, Parish of Drumkerran, Co Fermanagh;    Margaret's parents married 25th Jan 1927  Templecarn Parish, Donegal

          Margaret's sister Isabelle married Charles Sproule 30th Aug 1854 Tubrid Church; other sisters Eliza and Catherine

      Partic interested in details of William Graham and his wife also

Have not been able to further research of this family since last posting 2 years ago; not for want of trying !!!

Am unable to visit to view records in person and have paid researchers to find most of what is known to date !!    William and Jane along with children Anne Jane and Alexander emmigrated to Australia in 1857 and 1859
