That's very kind Maureen. Further to the posting of a few minutes ago re
McGahey - that spelling was on a 1923 NSW death certificate - a son being the
informant. It is doubtful if Rebecca knew how to spell her own name.
In Ballinamallard churchyard I have seen an early 1900s tombstone for several
MEGAHEYs the elder being "of Relachguinness". I think this would be the
townland of Relagh Guinness, which is in fact over the border in Co Tyrone.
(I have a hunch about this!)
