Devlins of Foremass Upper, near Sixmilecross

  of 1442

Owen Devlin my great-great-great-grandfather possibly born about the 1800s was married around 1834 to Ellen Campbell. They lived in Foremass Upper and had at least five of a family: William (b 1835), Simon (b 1837 d 1917), Mary (b 1840), Peter (b 1843) and Owen (b 1848).

William was married to Margaret Montague and had at least one son John (b 18 Apr 1878).

Simon was my great-great-grandfather. He was married to Mary McCann (b 1861 d 1890) and had John (b 1887 d), Ellen (b 1888 d 1969) and Mark (b 1890 d 1953). Shortly after Mark was born, his mother Mary died.

It's believed that, following my great-great-grandmother Mary's death in 1890 at the age of 29, Mark was sent to Altamuskin where he was raised by his maternal grandmother Jane McCann (nee Kelly). As indicated in both the 1901 and 1911 census, my great-great-grandfather Simon is a widow with three surviving children. I know nothing of John other than he was born in 1887.

Ellen my great-grandmother was married to Charles Devine of Ballynahaye. They settled in Aughnagar near Sixmilecross and had a family of eight: Mary Ellen (my grandmother), Cassie, Brigid, Rita, Nora, John, Jean and Winnie.

Mark was married to Lizzie McGirr of Ballykeel. They lived in Aughnagar and had two daughters Velva and Nan.

I know these Devlins had a cousin named Rosie Devlin but I'm not sure if Rosie's father was a brother or cousin of Simon Devlin.
