  • Notes 
    • NAME:
      According to oral family history related by John J. Dolan (1884-1971) to Margaret Dolan Callaghan, the great-grandfather of Peter Dolan was known as "Auld Shawn" Dolan.

      MARRIAGES:
      - According to oral family history related by John J. Dolan (1884-1971) to Margaret Dolan Callaghan, "Auld Shawn" Dolan was married 3 times. He had 6 sons and one daughter by his first wife, no children with his second wife, and another 6 sons and 1 daughter with his third wife.
      - It is not known from which of these three marriages his son John Dolan (born before 1784) was born.

      LAND HOLDINGS:
      - According to oral family history related by John J. Dolan (1884-1971) to Margaret Dolan Callaghan, "Auld Shawn" Dolan initially owned about 4000 acres, mostly bog land, from "Aughanaho to Lettergran." His land was confiscated and given to Protestant landholders, and then the land that was not bog was rented to others. "Auld Shawn" was allowed to cut peat in the bog 6 days each year.
      - There is perhaps something on the order of 4000 acres in the townlands stretching from Aghnahoo Townland in County Tyrone (northeast of Killeter and near to Killen) down to Lettercran Townland in County Donegal (southwest of Seegronan Townland). The area southwest of Seegronan Townland has significant amounts of bogland.
