My 2nd great grandmother was from Glenvar, Donegal. Possibly from Bunnaton.  She was born about 1850, immigrated to Pennsylvania in the 1860's where she married my 2nd great grandfather m, Michael Kane from Limerick. 
I'm trying to figure out which family she was from.  There are 3 Gallaghers listed in Bunnaton records. 

there is a John Gallaher in the 1820 tithe book.  

In the 1901 census there is a James Gallagher in Bunnaton born 1941 in Donegal, wife Annie born 1946 in Donegal, and daughter Hannah born 1884 in Newark New Jersey USA (the family was there in and 1885 New Jersey census).  


Then in the 1911 census James is no longer there in Bunnaton. Instead, there is a Charles Gallagher b 1838 wife Giley b 1841, son Hugh b 1891.  

does anyone know anything more about any of these Gallaghers from Bunnaton?
