eToday while indexing marriages for Ballinode Church of Ireland in Tedavnet parish, Co. Monaghan I found a marriage entry dated 27 October 1857 for a James Cree, Drumreaske, Tydavnet parish, Co. Monaghan. He was the son of a Robert Cree who was a mason by trade. He married a Hester Lowry of Killylough, Tedavnet parish, Co. Monaghan. She was the daughter of a Robert Lowry, farmer. The witnesses were Thomas Lowry and John Hanna. The marriage was celebrated with Rev. Gardiner Richardson Young, rector of Errigal Truagh parish.
The surname Cree is very rare and it is the only entry found in any Co. Monaghan parish.
I thought someone out there might be interested in this entry.
