red mail Alexander McDowell
Born around 1777, Alexander met & married Ann McIntyre. He was not from Achill originally, but was working for the army and the unit he was with ran out of food etc.. At low tide he and others were sent over the water to the cottages that could be seen on Achill. Anns was one of the first they tried and she allowed them in on condition they leave their weapons outside. After drying out, being fed and watered, she sent them on their way with some provisions. Later on, Alexander secretly made his way back to Ann who hid him in her cottage and they eventually settled down together. Alexander is my 3rd great grandfather, he had John b. 1827 who married Mary Ann McHale. John had Thomas b. 1864 who married Maria Frances Robinson. They had my grandfather Edwin Thomas McDowell b.1904 who married Eileen Mabel Keane. Their children are : Edwin Victor b.1934, Phyllis Adrienne b.1936, My Mother Eileen Frances b. 1938 - 2004, Edith Margaret Ann b.1940, Harold John (Jackie) b.1941, Thomas W. b.1943-1944, Thomas Douglas (Dougie) b.1946, James Ronald b.1949, Evelyn Dorothy b.1950, Avril Eileen b.1956 and Norman William b. 1958. They lived at Ivy House, Doogort, Slievemore. Does anyone have any other information?
