1864-1929_Hannaway &McGees_MapNames
Picture Note: 1864 map of Slieve Gullion and of surrounding townlands adjoining the Longfield Road. The five holdings, Nos 2 to 6, each show the tenant's name in 1864 followed by the year that a subsequent tenant took over - up to 1929.
Picture Note: In land plot 2 John Hannaway left home in 1867 and married into Levelamore, inheriting its tenancy in 1886. Back in Slieve Gullion John later took over his parent's land (plot 2) in 1916, following the death of his brother Hughie. In plot 4 Michael McGee was from Denis (Dinny) Mcgee's household (No 5); Michael had married neigbour Catherine Farmer in 1865.
Picture Note: These households were at 850 feet and acess down to the (Longfield) road was mostly through Aughadanove townland. Since most could not read at this time "Aughadanove" was invariably recorded as their home on births/marriages, rather than "Slieve Gullion".

1939 Register_Hannaways_Lev'amore
Picture Note: "The 1939 Register" - a page from the Register: the Hannaway household in Levelamore. The national survey was carried out in Sep 1939-at the outbreak of WW2. The initial records were completed by each household and were used to issue national identity cards straight away; in 1948 those householder copies were used as the basis for the records of the new NHS service. The census enumerator collected the householders' copy, from which the record pages seen here were created . This entry page confirms Annie McParland's birth date (in Chicago) and Mary's later marriage name. The 4 blacked-out entries are individuals born less than 100 years ago and Public Record Office N Ireland have no death record. (Bernadette, Maggie-Rose, Georgie and one other). This page was obtained from PRONI under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. © Crown copyright- https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/proni - Public Record Office (PRONI); FOI act 2000.
