There is a strip of land next to Thomas Gillespie`s, now owned by Hughbert Murray, which was once the home of the McCann family. In 1856 Owen McCann was head of the family and then , by 1901, his son Felix and his wife, Elizabeth, are bringing their family up there.  By 1911, their son John, aged 47, is a widower and is living here with his son Felix and his elderly parents, Felix and Elizabeth. Also living there is his sister Mary who is 37. By the early 1920s, the parents were deceased and John and sister Mary have emigrated to USA, never to return. The Thomas Gillespies paid the rates on the farm and used it as their own, claiming Squatters rights.

Felix seems to have stayed in Sixtowns and worked as a farm labourer around the district.
