I have been to Movilla cemetery this year actually. In the old part there were 8 stones named McGimpsey and 1 McJimpsey. This latter one was the oldest and was inscribed with the following:-
Here lieth ye body of John McJimpsey who died March ye 7 1783 aged 85 years. Here lieth ye body of Kathrine SPEER wife to John McJimpsey who departed this life Dec. ye 29 1779 aged 78 years. Also 5 sons and 1 daughter.
I thought you mind find this interesting being the oldest grave stone. Some of them are very weathered and hard to read. I will go through the other ones and if I find any relating to your conection I will forward them to you.
I have just recently become interested in our family tree and am lucky to have an aunt aged 89 who is very informative. I will tell her what you have said and see if she remembers any conection.
