Note the McCrackens lived in no 2 Ballycopeland.
There is still a working windmill in Ballycopeland, I notice that the McGiltons were Millers.
Ballycopeland windmill is now a tourist attraction.http://www.virtualvisit-northernireland.com/gallery.aspx?dataid=48016&title=Houses_and_Heritage
I know a James McGilton owned a windmill in Ballyhalbert called Clydesburn. It was
demolished during the 2nd world war because it was in the way of the RAF planes that were based in the airfield behind.http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/2104185/nai002293120/
