[Authors Note: I wish to bring to the attention of the reader, strictly for the purpose of research possibilities, the following points of interest.]
1. As noted in Chapter One, Andrew Brekey was born 1718; married Jane Flack in 1746 - Clogher Diocese Marriage Licence Bonds.
2. Andrew Brekey’s contemporary would have been William Breakey who married Sarah Wilson 1743/4 - Clogher Marriage Licence Bonds (McElroy to author, 11 May 1980).
I propose that Andrew Brekey and William Breakey were brothers, or at the very least first cousins.

In Chapter 3 the funeral sermon given by Dr. Murphy for Rev. Andrew Breakey of Killyleagh states that the maiden name of Rev. Andrew’s mother was ‘Rogers.’
In Chapter 1 – see entry dated 25 Feb 1785/26 Aug 1785 ROD number (373-175-24872). A copy of the full deed should be requested to clarify the Rogers/Breakey connection. It raises such questions as:
1. Was Mary Rogers, daughter of John Rogers, the mother of Rev. Andrew Breakey?
2. Does this deed indicate a second marriage for Isaiah Breakey in that his son, John, is mentioned?
3. Is the connection between Andrew Breakey of Lismagonway and Isaiah Breakey made clear?
