hoping someone may have these folks in their tree!!

Michael KILGALLON B ABT 1819 marr Margaret McCRAN B 1843..Michaels parents: John KILGALLON/KILGANNON & Catherine NEALIS..Margarets parents: Hugh McCRAN & Elizabeth O'GARA....Ballysadare/Kilvarnet area's.

Another angle is Michael KILGALLON first married Susanna McCRAN [ Margaret's sister ] in 1848..a son Morgan was born 1848, Susanna must had died in childbirth. I can't seem to find more in Morgan, but have found a man named Morgan KILGALLON in Fallarthurteen Sligo, is there anyone that can help me find or direct me on how find more.

Many Thanks

  • Hi Wendy I will try and help. I live in Sligo. The townland where the Kilgallens reside is called "Fallathurteen" - see https://www.townlands.ie/sligo/tireragh/skreen/toberpatrick-east/fallath.... It is in Tireragh in west Sligo. This townland is within the parish of Skreen and Dromard and for Census purposes is within the electoral division of Toberpatrick East. Here is the page from the National Census of 1901 - http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Sligo/Toberpatrick_East... - this townland is entirely populated by Kilgallens! Morgan Kilgallen, born in 1872, seems to come from House 2. Morgan died in 1880 so he is not living in 1901. You can also check the Toberpatrick East Census Returns for 1911. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know. Kind regards Tom
