Submitted by
William Houston


Derry Journal - Friday, 12th July, 1907

Ellen/Ellin Dunn was born in Ballyneanor on the 26th June, 1868, the daughter of Edward and Margaret Dunn [nee Gordon]. She died on the 9th April, 1913, aged 46, in the presence of her sister, Martha Glass, of cardiac imbalance, that she'd suffered from for over a year. Sad end to a sad story of Ellen, but she left a son, John Robert, who lived around Donemana. Her death record lists her as 'married', but there's no record that she actually was married.

It would appear George didn't marry either...died in 1939 and was buried from his sister's house
