Hugh Gormley's parents were Robert Gormley and Mary Gormley nee Coll.
Robert and Mary Gormley's ages on the form are incorrect. Robert was 56 at that time. Mary was 58.
The house is listed has having two outhouses - one was a piggery and the other was a fowl house. House was thatched. 2 rooms. 2 windows in front of house. One person was sick the day the census was taken 31 March 1901 and there are only three in the house. Josiah Galbraith was the owner of the house.
Mary Gormley died suddenly at Craighadoes in 1906 on the 20 December. She had cerebral softening for six months. Isabella was present at her death.
Later her husband Robert, is described as a widower living in Cuttymanhill, St Johnston, in the census of 1911 and is said to be 74 years old. It was a thatched one roomed and one window house. He didn't own the house. Again this age is probably mistaken.
Robert suffered from chest problems and dementia. He died in Drumucklagh in 1915 on 21 January at 71 years of age.
Hugh Gormley was born 20 October 1877 at Drumucklagh.
His sister Hanna married Patrick McBrearty.

APPENDIX FROM AN ANCESTRY WEBSITE
REGARDING MARY COLL'S BROTHER
I have now found hugh Coll's father to be Daniel Coll. No known mother as yet. James John Coll was baptised in St Johnston Co. Dongeal in 1860 so they have to be there somewhere. Maybe a paid researcher may be able to help me do you think? Just an idea so I can get a lead to somewhere. The sponsors were a Mary Coll and Robert Gormly. No address is shown on the record. Denomination is Roman Catholic.
Robert Gormley and Mary Coll had children
Mary b. May 2 1865 Isabella b. May 25 1867 Hannah b. Feb 12 1871 Hugh b. Oct 20 1877 per IGI index
