    Hamilton's house at Marymore there is a mound. About the year 1924 the late Mr. William Hamilton decided that the mound ought to be cleared away. When the men began the work of levelling they found that it was a heap of human skeletons and so they proceeded no further.
    That battle of Marymore is supposed to have been fought in 1689. Between a section of Jacobite army and the supporters of William proceeding from Raphoe to help their friends inside the walls of Derry.
