Yes, it is the Comber Parish (Church of Ireland) Church but before Presbyterian churches and graveyards came into existence Presbyterians were buried in parish graveyards. There is a McMorran gravestone in Ballygowan Prewsbyterian graveyard but the people were from Magherascouse.
Nancy McMorran alias Kerr, married to Thomas McMorran. He d. Feb.3 1862 aged 52. Nancy McMorran Kerr d. Feb.1881. Samuel, son of Samuel and Ahnes Presho d. 1905 aged 5.

Hello Hugh,

What can i say in the message that you sent to me , This has opened alot of doors for me as i did not know that before Presby church graveyards came into existence people were burried in the Church of Ireland.

Thankyou Hugh.

I want to thank you also, Hugh McCartney; I saw your message from yesterday and now I understand why there are Presbyterian Claneys in Bangor Abbey graveyard ! You have helped me a great deal, and others as well, I know.
