Coalmines would have been very familiar around the county of Tyrone back as early as the eighteenth century. A clan known as the McGough's lived in the barony of Dungannon when there was a lot of coal mining taken place in different parts of the region. A man by the name of Andrew McGough and his brother Terence came from eastern Tyrone to work in this Town land.


The 1821 - 1851 census were almost all destroyed by fire. The 1861 - 1891 returns were destroyed by the Government. Full details of the 1901 - 1911 returns are available free of charge on the National Archives of Ireland website.
