In Reply to: Creightons of South Derry and Co Tyrone, Ireland by James Garvin of 773

Hello James,

I am researching Creighton's from in and around Cookstown, Co. Tyrone (my wife's family).

The earliest records I have found are baptisms for John & Esther Creighton's 6 children in Lissan Parish Church:

Jane (b. 1826), Henry (b. 1827), John (b. 1830), William (b. 1832), Mary (b. 1835) and Archy (b. 1838). I have traced Henry's family, but am unable to confirm marriages for the rest of the family.

My wife is descended through Henry, and I have marriages for 2 of his 10 children (George & Nathaniel). I am still trying to confirm what happened the remainder of his offspring.

Does any of this sound familiar to you? If you still have a copy of your Creighton file, could you email it to me?

Many thanks,
