Note on Marriage

The McIlmoyle children were brought up on a farm between Limavady and Coleraine, several miles up the Murderhole Road (great name) in Co. Londonderry. The family had 11 children, as you write, 2 of which died in infancy. My great grandfather [Andrew Ferguson McIlmoyle], early on decided he wasn't suited to farm life, so was apprenticed to a grocers and opened up a grocery shop with his younger brother, William McIlmoyle. The shop was called 'McIlmoyle Bros' but sadly Willie died of the Spanish Flu in 1918. My great grandfather kept the shop name until the end.
