I am searching for any Pattersons. My ancestors came from Woodhill and Castledowy in Donegal. I have info that there were marriages in Raymoghy Church in 1860, 1867, 1873, 1878. Also marriages in 1879,, 1882, 1883 but unclear if the same church.  There are some buried at Errity cemetery. Is anyone able to help please?
