  • Hi Miriam,

    I'm afraid I can't see a previous post from me regarding the McCooeys.

    I had a look on rootsireland but all I could find was the baptisms of Catherine & Alicia.

    There are 3 McCooeys in the 1831 Irish Census (free online at but they are all in Moneydig, Desertoghill, Londonderry

    Better luck in the Tithe Applotments (free at which have 34 McCooeys in the 1820's & 30's with 22 in Armagh.

    The Will Calendars on PRONI have 24 McCooeys in Armagh1870 to 1917
