Re: MCGENNITY-DEVLIN Cookstown TYRONE
I have just found this posting and wonder if I have a connection.My grandfather on my maternal side was William McCord.His parents were Thomas McCord and Anne (Nancy) McGinerty/McGennity? I have seen several spellings.Her father was William McGinerty and her residence on her marriage certificate was Derrygonigan.She was married in 1862 and born abt. 1842.She had a brother William John born about 1849 and died in 1881.He was married to a Jane Conway.I believe she had two sisters Catherine and Margaret.I do not know her mother's name.Her father William died in 1879 and from death cert. I believe him to be born about 1817.William John had a son James born in 1879 and died in 1881.
I would almost believe there is a connection here with the place name and also that surname was not that common.
I would love to hear from you if you have more information.
