Dec. 17. Bap. Jane, dtr, of Thos Graham and Ellenor McLoon, a bastard.
Godfather: Jon McKena (McKenna)
Godmother: Mary Emo & Mary McIlroay.
(Mary McIlroy was the sister of my g.g.g.grandmother, Jane Morton, and the
daughter of Jane Graham. Thomas Graham was probably her first cousin. I don’t
think that she or Mary Emo, who later married Thomas Moffitt, would have stood
Godmother to an illegitimate child. Ellenor McLoon was obviously a Catholic,
And I suspect that she and Thomas Graham had been married in the Catholic
Church, so their marriage might not have been recognised in the C/I. In later
Baptisms Ellenor was said to be “his wife”.

Mary Doonan (Downey) & Margt. Love.
(This John Morton emigrated to Philadelphia, U.S.A. with his brothers, Edward,
William, Richard, and Thomas, in 1765. His parents, William Morton & Mary
Downey, also went. Mary Doonan (Downey) the Godmother, was his sister. She
must have married her cousin. I think the Doonans came from Galloon Parish)
