Hello,
I wondered if anyone could help me with any further information on the following family:

Mary McAllister born about 1775 Northern Ireland (probably County Antrim)

Her brother was Sam McAllister who was killed at the Battle of Derrynamuck, County Wicklow, in 1799. He was from County Antrim.
I found a web site that said that Sam McAllister's mother (whose name I would love to find out) died in Dublin.
Unfortunately I lost the URL and can't find it on any search engines.

Does anyone have any more information about this family?

Thanks,
A. O'Brien,
Australia

The information I found on the Internet about Sam McAllister's mother was as follows.

Does anyone have any ideas about where I could find more information? Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

"Mrs McAllister, Sam's mother, had been living in Dolphin's Barn, Dublin and came to the Glen of Imaal to the grave of her only son. She stayed some time with the Dwyer's, visiting the grave daily. It was thought she then returned to Dublin and died sometime later in a Widow's Alms House in John's Lane."
