Edward Quigley
Edward Quigley born c 1814 in Newbliss, Killeevan, Co. Monaghan, Ireland.
John Quigley born c 1816 in Newbliss, Killeevan, Co. Monaghan, Ireland.



Letters sent from Govan by John Quigley's daughter Catherine Quigley to her cousin John Quigley in Newbliss has linked Edward and John above as brothers as well as identifying the Newbliss area as John's birthplace.

On his son John's death certificate the name Quigley was mistakenly recorded as *Quagley, Michael was also recorded as Quagley as was the death informant his grandson E. Quagley (Edward Quigley). John's death entry is the only information we have on Michael and his wife Mary.

The Griffiths Evaluation of Ireland 1848-64 lists both a Michael and John Quigley in Crossreagh, Killeevan and an Edward Quigley at Lisnagore, Killeevan.

There is a grave in St Livinus' RC Graveyard, Killeevan which reads "Erected by Michael Quigley, Crossreagh, in mememory of his wife Mary died May 1855".
