Help needed in search for WWI soldier's family

Published 01/09/2016

I am searching for any relatives of World War 1 soldier Private Thomas McGrath who died of wounds at home on 1st of April, 1920.

He was the son of Andrew and Bridget McGrath of Kilcootry, Fintona and the husband of Minnie Mcgrath, Mill Street, Fintona. He also served in the South African War. He is buried in Donacavey Old Graveyard, Fintona.

Please forward any information to
