  • Notes 
    • In 1889 John McGovern married Annie Stewart in Holywell, Belcoo, Co Fermanagh. John is from Agho, about 6 miles north-west of the church. Annie Stewart, aged 17, lives about 1 mile from the church on a peninsula - Rosscorkey island. Her father James Stewart is the only landholder listed in this tiny townland. Their daughter Annie McGovern will later move to USA and marry Francis Hannaway from Slieve Gullion.
      The closest Registrar office for John McGovern is in Church Hill, which comes under the District Registrar in Ballyshannon, County Donegal. For John it's 15 miles from Agho to Church Hill along hilly and winding roads; a wearying trip if it was by horse and cart. Many registrations are some 5 or 6 weeks after the Birth.
      (Note: 1901 census-the family are recorded as McGowan, not McGovern). In the 1911 census John & Annie are recorded to have had 12 children; 8 are "Living" at the time.
