Am loooking for information on my ggreatgrandparents.His name was Patrick Walls and was born on the shores of Loch Neagh in Londonderry but the farm they lived on was always refered to as being waterfoot farm in Toome so confusion reigns.His wife was named Catherine Diamond and may have been from Kilrea area.The last known familt occupants of this farm were to sisters who may have been the children of one of his brothers.That was in the 1950's.Their names were Catherine and Nellie Walls.Nellie took care of the farm and Catherine was a school teacher in the local area. I think the farm was given to one of the farm helpers named Murphy when the last one died.Patrick Walls was born on 22 may 1847 and Catherine Diamond was born in 1848.They were married in October 1871 and eventually moved to England where he was very active in the mines and steel works unions.Any information would be appreciated.Would love to hear from someone in the local area who could explain the area as regards to the Toome and Derry connection.Kathleen
