My husband's Hanlon family come from Mullaghduff (near Bunbeg) in County Donegal and we go over a couple of times a year. I'd be happy to do lookups or headstone photos for you next time we're over, probably Easter 2007. I can recall seeing the Alcorn name in several of the cemeteries in the area.

Best Regards,
Annemarie Bruinsma Hanlon

P.S. we share an interest in the Melvin/McDonald families of Ohio. I received a cemetery transcript from a fellow researcher this week for the Upper Glade cemetery, Deer Creek which you may be interested in, if you don't already have it - just contact me directly.
