I am seeking more information about John Lindsay, a farmer in Drumcliffe Parish in Co. Sligo, probably Creaghadoo townland. He had a daughter named Rosa or Rosanna, born c 1860, who married George Brooks in July 1881 at the Parish Church in Drumcliffe. Witnesses were George Elliott and Anne McKilly.
George Brooks was from Co. Leitrim. George and Rosa or Rosanna had 3 daughters, who emigrated to the US. Rosa died in Leitrim in 1887. Any details anyone might have about the Lindsay family in Drumcliffe would be greatly appreciated.

There are 67 Lindsays' listed in the 1901 census, and out of this 46 are living in the Lissadell area which is in the parish of Drumcliffe. From a quick look, they are all Church of Ireland. There is a John Lindsay aged 57 which would give him a birth year of 1844, in Co. Leitrim.
