Location and time frame would be helpful. What country, county and or city was Abraham McNeil born in, married in, and where is the Kilorea Cofi Graveyard located?

Would you know the year Abraham was born, the year he married Mary Armstrong, and the year that he died?

I  believe he was born around 1795 in the area near Kilrea,in county Londonderry, Northern Ireland,  perhaps Moynock.  I do not know when he married Mary but the first of their children, Margaret, was born about 1827, followed by 6 more in the years to 1836.  I believe he died in November 1842, but it may have been 1847 (hard to read the figure).

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, as I have been trying to climb this brickwall for several years.

Thank you.

I copied this answer from another forum, perhaps it would help?

The McNeill family have a farm in Moynock, though it is rented to another family. The son Alex lives near Ballymoney and the daughter is in Scotland.

There is a Kilrea local history group on Facebook who should know more.

Thank you - that is most interesting.

Would love to make contact with the family to see whether they can solve a few mysteries for me and if they would be interested in the stories of some of the family members who emigrated to Australia in the 1850s.  i will also try to contact the Kilrea Family History group - i am only sorry i did not have the chance to do that when I was in the area four years ago.

There was a McNeill  buried in the C of I graveyard recently, I think it was early Dec so the family must still be around. Have you seen these photos, I think they're looking at a family gravestone? http://flickrhivemind.net/Tags/kilrea,mcneill
