Another explanation re- this posting: One of our ancestors is featured in the article (John HUGGINS of Glenarb townland, Aghaloo parish, Co Tyrone), and so one wonders whether there are other persons featured in the article, who were also residents of the Co Tyrone. Seems quite plausible when the the place of interest in the news article was a border town of both Counties Armagh & Tyrone.
