Correction to William of Antrim and Fermanagh

The Knockmaokigan, Fermanagh address is mispelled and doesn't give an exact location.  For that
reason alone, I might not have had any comments to the previous posting.  I hope to do better this
time.  The correct detail address where William McCown died in Fermanagh is Knockmakegan,
Manor Hightower, Newtownbutler, Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Ulster, Ireland.  I don't have
the Irish equivalent to a zip code.  The corrected information came from the Ordnance Survey
Memoirs of 1834/5, Vol. 4 of Enniskillen, Fermanagh.

So far, I have not succeeded in returning to the records for the original entry, but there were between
five and ten listing the birth of this William McCown in Antrim in 1708 and his death in "Knockmaogkigan, Fermanagh in 1747.  We endeavor to maintain your trust with accurate information.

Ah! The wonderful world of spelling variation in historical records.
