Robert McConnell of Chester, England left a message on the guestbook of stjohnstonandcarrigans.com. “My grandmother Matilda Loughrey was born in or around the Argony Pipe Newtowncunningham. I am not clear about the area and it divisions. Her father’s name was William and they were in Derry in 1904 when she married my grandfather James Hegarty. I am trying to do a geological search and wonder if any one could advise.” Please visit the website if you can help Robert.
