McNOCKER/CONNOR FAMILY OF MONREAGH AND UPPER FAHAN, CO. DONEGAL

The families below fit into my family somewhere - either as cousins or siblings. Nothing more to go on at the moment. 

1. Henry McNOCKER/CONNOR of Inch Island born circa 1820 Co. Donegal. Henry married Margaret CRUMLISH. On the 1857 Griffiths Valuations he is described as being of Monreagh,  died Monreagh 1870. Margaret came from Gortnaskea, Upper Fahan. This couple are  the great, great, great grandparents of Martin who gave me this information.  This family and their descendants are Roman Catholics. It appears that about the mid 1860's the families who remained Catholic settled on the CONNOR version of their surname whilst the ones who had adopted Presbyterianism became McNAUGHER.
