Looking for any information on Patrick Harkin or a name for his wife their  son  was Francis Harkin Married Susan Marley and lived in Atlahan or Ardlaghan as I now know it . There must have been other children of Patricks 

Trying to connect to the right Patrick but with out a name for wife this is proving difficult as I am not sure if we originally came from the area any help greatly appreciated

  • Hi There


    Last summer a friend of mine that was at home from the U.S. and I went to search for her husband's ancestors graves in Donegal.


    It happens that we went to Kiltevogue, she photographed a number of Grave's there.

    She won't have any further information as we were only visiting the area,


    But I just thought you might recognise some of the names and it may help in your research.

    There are also some photographs of the graveyard on this website

    Also some information that may help


    Kilteevogue is situated up in the mountains in the Finn Valley outside Stranorlar, this is a nice website


    Hope you find something helpful here

    Hello my name is Debbie.  My Gradfathers mother was (Catherine)Kate Harkins.  She married John MacKenzie.  They went to Ontario Canada got married had one son John Kenneth MacKenzie.  They then moved to Michigan had another son Malcolm McKenzie (notice the change in spelling of last name) lived in Palmyra Michigan

    She was the sister of Fanny, Hannah and Mary I think there may have been another sister.  

    Parents were Patrick and Mary Harkins.  I I have photos of some pictures and marriage certificates but don't know how to post them.  If we are connected would love to hear from you.
