Griffiths Valuation records Robert Grac(e)y in 1863 living in a small house on the farm of Alexander Jameson, in Drumaghadone townland. Modern address is Scolban Rd which is a couple of miles south of Dromore. Should be easy enough to find to day, though whether the Gracey house is still standing is less certain.
