      Comments: Cousin,
      You have a Martha Branigan married to William James Craig on your tree (I was googling William James Craig to see what I could find). She is the next older sister to my 2great grandfather Thomas Brengan. We have a copy of her diary as she and 'Willie' go to Australia. Her father didn't approve of the match so her older sister Margaret helped she and 'Willie' Craig get to the 2nd Presbyterian Church in Ballymoney and elope off to Australia. (She was 16 and he considerably older - and well traveled- he had been to the gold fields in California). He gave up his family estate to elope with her which even today is a large farm by northern Ireland standards (365 acres). Limepark is now a bed and breakfast and a artists retreat (beautiful place - we saw it in 2008 and have some pictures too).

      I'm writing this upstairs to not disturb my wife's sleep - so I don't have access to my files, however, if you are interested in a copy of the diary and family tree info let me know.
