I am trying to find where Springvale might have been in Monaghan?
Was it a house in Monaghan town or somewhere in the county of Managhan?
Josephs profile is:-
Joseph Heather, linen draper, born 1747 son of William Heather and his wife Mary Gilmore of Broughdowey, Clonfeacle, Tyrone.
The family later lived in Kinego, Killyman, Tyrone.
By 1790 he is in Darkley, Keady, Armagh.
I have a son born in Dublin in 1810. Named Joseph Hamilton Heather.
A document from the Registry of Deeds has him in Springvale in 1821 and names his wife as Eleanor otherwise Hamilton. It also names a Benedict Hamilton.
The same address also apears in an 1820's directory.
I am hoping to establish the parish where the Heathers lived so that I can looke for BDM's for the period.
I would be grateful for any information on this family.
Thank you,
Hilary.
