      Re: McQuiggs of Co. Antrim, IRELAND (Islandcarragh)

      In Reply to: Burials at Dunluce Graveyard, Co. Antrim by J McAfee of 1976

      In old Dunluce (Cemetery) there is a tombstone to Anna Maria McKinley, died 1790, wife of John McQuigg of Islandcarragh. She is said to be the same McKinley as Francis of 1798 and President William (McKinley - US President). (page 359, Families of Ballyrashane, T. H. Mullin).
      ------------------------------------------

      McQuiggs do not appear in the Hearth Money Roll for Ballyrashane parish or in the McNaghten tenant roll of 1713 or in the Protestant housekeepers of 1740. They must have come to Islandcarragh in the latter half of the eighteenth century as there are three tombstones to McQuiggs of Islandcarragh in old Dunluce graveyard. These three tombstones are erected to:

      Anna Maria McKinlay, died 1790, wife of John McQuigg of Islandcarragh;
      William McQuigg of Islandcarragh, died 1797 aged 67;
      Samuel McQuigg, died 1824, and his wife, Molly Brown, died 1817.

      The present representative of the family, Samuel John McQuigg of Islandcarragh, lives in a house built in 1892 on a farm purchased by the McQuigg family. The McQuigg who farmed here emigrated, and sold to Thompsons (the same Thompson as James Mayne Thompson of Bushmills Road), who sold to Logue, who re-sold to the McQuiggs who farmed on the opposite side of the road. This latter farm was never bought or sold since the McQuiggs came to Islandcarragh. S.J. McQuigg's uncles, James and Moore, inherited a farm at Senirl from their father.
      Moore McQuigg emigrated to Kalamazoo, where he built in 1929 the fine First Presbyterian Church in this city at a cost of 375,000 dollars. James McQuigg sold Senirl to Henry McNickle and bought a farm at Ballyhunsley from Mrs. McVicker who married his brother Samuel of Islandcarragh. This Ballyhunsley farm is now Robert Bleakley's.
      McQuiggs of Ballyclough were the same family. The McQuigg farms in Islandcarragh and Ballyclough marched one another, and there was a path across the fields between the two farmsteads. This line of this path can still be traced. A Samuel McQuigg of Ballyclough was married to a Lyle of Carncoggie; his grandson William John led the singing in the old Presbyterian church of Benvarden or Carncoggie. A Miss Dyson, a missionary in Egypt, is descended from the McQuiggs of Ballyclough. The McQuiggs of Berehill were also the same family. The Ballyclough farm is now Cochranes: Cochranes originally came from the Limavady district. Another related McQuigg family was McQuigg of Ballyrock; this farm is now owned by Robert Walker of Ballyrock. (pages 332-333, Families of Ballyrashane by T.H. Mullin).

      William is on the 1790 Freeholders list for County Antrim and was living in Islandcarragh
      Townland, Dunluce Civil Parish, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

      From the old Dunce parish Church yard:

      Here leith the body
      of William McQuigg
      Late of Islandcarragh
      who departed this life
      the 3rd day of April, 1797
      aged 67 years

      **************************************************************
      There are some that have William (1730) and Malcolm (1761) as brothers rather than father and son.
