Brenda was asking for assistance to find her McComiskey ancestors from Hilltown. From my copies of the IGI microfiche and Vital Records CDs I was only able to find the following.
Daniel McComiskey & Rose Nicholson of Warrenpoint had the following children
Michael b. 24 Sep 1865
Henry b. 7 Mar 1866
Henry b. 7 Apr 1868

John McComiskey & Bridget Barr of Rostrevor had the following children
Mary b. 22 Aug 1864
Peter b. 22 Aug 1866

Griffith's Valuation c 1863 records that Terence McComiskey was living in Church Lane Warrenpoint

I must have missed that. Here are a few more suggestions.
Ros Davies has extensive listings for McComiskey/McCumiskey in Down. There are quite a number from Clonduff and it might be worthwhile looking at those in Warrenpoint and other places nearby.

Brenda, Seamus can not recall any relatives named Carroll. Kathleen,s mothers name was Carvill perhaps your relatives are on that side of the family. -- Rosaleen

aw Bless Jim...honestly u are wonderful.....Becky is the grandaughter of my grannies brother and we made contact thru genes reunited a couple of years ago. I have recently made contact with another family member, same familly but further back...P.F.Carroll ( her gr8 grandfather )and that John Carroll ( my great grandfather )are brothers and both are sisters of Kathleen...thier father John Carroll married a Mary Ferrigan....thats as far back as i have been able to go so far but have discovered family alive an well all over the USA thru finding the Ferrigan-Carroll connection. They are pushing me to try and find out where the home house of these ppl are...i have discovered a connection with Leitrim / Clonduff Hilltown and also Drumgath / Rathfriland alright so possibly there may be church records for me to find.
I found record for some of thier children Paul, Bridget and Catherine and also the marriage record for thier son John who was my great garndad and married Bridget Murphy.
I have a good bit of info re thier other kids but cant go back any further...there was a Bernard Carroll who signed at the birth of Paul Carroll who is prob a relative but cant find any further.

Thank u all for trying to help me, i will find it all out someday soon :D

another public thank you again...i left a message on Jennifers site and she has emailed me back already. The info she gave me is invaluable and she has more contacts who may remember more. Again a little discrepency as to wether John Carroll came from Down or Armagh ( i know i have Co Down blood in me hahaha ) as she mentioned Killeavy...however i think he well mite have been buried in Killeavy in 1890 so a little bit more digging to do...but thank you, you are fantastic.

Glad to be of help - the answer to your query on Killeavy might be "both" - the Local Government Act of 1898 brought Newry town into County Down for administrative purposes - prior to that the Clanrye River was the traditional dividing line between Armagh and Down - this is why Newry Town Hall was (uniquely) built on a bridge spanning the river, because residents could not agree to have the administrative seat in each other's county (allegedly). Prior to that Newry was in Armagh, however the Act also made other changes, so it is entirely possible that over time Killeavy too was in both Counties.

There was a McComiskey family living next door to us in Milltown Street. I can only remember one of the daughters was called Meena who may be living in Donougmore outside Newry. Sometimes Mrs McComiskey would leave her turkey in for my mother to cook as her own oven was too small. I didn't know about the son who died in 1940 until I read the post.

That daughter is now Mrs. Meena O'Callaghan, who lives in Clermont Gardens nowadays, her son Adrian was killed in a car accident about 6/7 years ago.
I think they were nicknamed the 'Scamper' McComiskey's, cousins of the McComiskey's from East Street.

Hi McComiskey Family,
While I was out taking photo's of war graves, I came across one in Clonduff RC Parish Church.
I think this marker was installed by the family as this person died on the 02 Feb 1965. So can not be a person that died during the wars. I took a photo to see if I can find out anything about him. This was the only page that had connections like name, location ect. Plus I was wondering if you had any information on him yourself.
He is J McComiskey. 8/4187 L/Cpl New Zealand Otago Regiment.
If you wish to have a copy of the photo the please let me know.
Martin W
