Ballyreagh, Fermanagh, Ireland
Double court tomb in the remains of a very long cairn over 330 years in length, 1.75 mi (2.6 km) NW of the village of Tempo and about 5 mi (.75 km SW of Lough Mulshane. There are forecourts at each end leading into galleries with two chambers each. The entrance on the W is unusually fine with a curious sill stone; that to the E is made of larger stones (up to 6 ft high) the western part of the tomb was reused for urn burials in the Late Bronze or Early Iron Ages.
Fermanagh Gold members may be interested in the above, giving evidence of the antiquity of Ireland.
Looking for anyone with connections to John and Elizabeth Vance & Thomas and Sarah Noble Vance. John & Elizabeth had a daughter Sarah born June 3, 1850 in Tempo. She came to America when she was 18 and settled in IL thru 1872. She married Thomas Law and moved to Fort Dodge, IA.
Sarah had a cousin???? Martha Mae Vance who was born May 9, 1858 in Killeter. Martha came to visit cousin Sarah in IL and fell in love with Thomas Law's oldest son (by first marriage to Elizebeth Pulley) James Andrew Law and were married in IL.
If anyone has any info on the Vance's, Noble's or Law's, please contact me. Thanks!
