BURIALS 1754-57



Date Name Townland
Feb 8 John TOSH Dunnymanagh [Donemana]
Jul 4 Widow MCDONALD Liscleen

Sep 12 Margaret wife to Wm. MCKEE Upper Gortilack
Sep 31 Robert son of James DUNN Glennagoorland

The reason for so funerals are entered is an indecent custom of interring without sending for the minister to attend. That the Papists should always and the Presbyterians generally omit is not to be wondered, but it is astonishing that those who are of the established church should choose to bury their deceased friends like dogs

It is more than probable, this Entry is very short of the number of persons buried; because no notice is given to the Minister or Sexton – they steal a grave not excepting those, who, pretend to; belong to the Establish’d Church.

The great Disproportion betwixt the number of Children and Grown Persons, was owing to the Rifeness and Mortality of the Small-Pox.

Note – the rector has receiv’d no accnt of the interments in the burying Ground at Grange: which may be supposed to receive about a third of the parish
