Hi D H,
So you seem to have proven it, if I am reading your email correctly? I think Falley "Irish and Scotch Irish Ancestral Research" explains that the early Methodist ministers didn't perform baptisms and marriages. The established church did, so their records are with the established church in England and Ireland. No idea about Scotland, maybe someone who knows can tell us. I could check a book or so but I am too busy.
So for Methodists, always check the Church of Ireland records. Falley has a whole chapter on Methodists and their records. She also explains their history in Ireland, which is quite different from that of Presbyterians.
I think we've found our resident Monaghan expert!

Figevly townland cannot be found in subsequent records. In Griffiths there is a Feegavla townland in Donaghmoyne. How do I verify that Figevly=Feegavla?
Well it has been called various names on official documents over the centuries so depends on what century for a start.

St. Patrick's Church would be a local church but that doesn't mean they attended there! Some of mine lived near their local church but traveled miles
into Monaghan town in 1820's to attend church, christenings/marriages/funeral services etc but are buried in their local church.
One of mine was a Methodist Minister and was on various circuits, his kids are in C of I records. So as to what church yours attended I wouldn't try
to guess but local church would only be starting place.
Others of mine were baptised, married, kids baptised in same C of I church but some of these are buried in Pres. G/yard a few miles away, so the rule
is 'there are no rules!'...it wasn't a requirement to attend local church!
