  • Peter was born in Dunlargue Oct 25 1916, and as per tradition, was named after his paternal grandfather Peter Gorman.
    His parents, Patrick Gorman (or Gormill) and Ellen Loughran  were married Dec 23 1915 in Keady.   
    His brother Patrick was born Feb 1, 1918, and sister Mary Elizabeth born April 6, 1919.   Again per tradition, first daughter named after maternal grandmother Mary McAtaney. 

    Ellen's  parents were Owen Loughran and Mary McAtaney.   On the 1911 census the family were living at #8 Carricklane, Middletown, Co.Armagh.   Owen was already deceased before 1901.  Mary was 70.  Ellen had four older brothers John, Patrick, James (born in Tynan Jan 14,1869) and Francis., and a sister Mary Anne,  per 1901 census.     Owen may have died April 16,1899; witness was daughter Elizabeth (?).   Could this be Ellen or a daughter-in-law?  

    Hope some of this is new info for you.

  • Hi Maureen, well I think I've given you as much as I can, using census of 1901 and 1911, plus Civil registrations on

    There was a Peter Gorman, farmer, in Dunlargue in 1897 with 20 acres.  I cannot find I cannot find the death record of Peter  but in the 1901 census in Dunlargue there is a widow Mary Gorman with son Patrick 26 single.   Patrick was born June 22, 1870 to Peter Gormil and mary Murray.  .   Patrick is still single in 1911 census.   In 1915 Patrick Gorman marries Ellen Loughran and in 1916 Peter is born, then Patrick in 1918 (mother's name shows as Loughlin but I think it should be Ellen Loughran).  Peter dies in 1925 age 11.   I don't know of other siblings after that as they would be in Northern Ireland records (PRONI) which I do not have access to, so I do not have a record of birth of Kevin Henry in 1921.   The name Henry does appear in Gorman births and marriages in Co.Armagh going back to 1825.    

    I've given you some details on the Lougran side.     

    Good luck from here.
