The Arborealis logo is a stylized photograph © Alison Kilpatrick. It depicts an estate worker's cottage in Derrykintone townland, parish of Aghaloo, county Tyrone. The Earl of Caledon built these cottages just outside the western wall of his estate in the early 1800s. About a dozen have been refurbished, while others are in a derelict state. Formerly of Glenarb, our third great grandfather, James Huggins (1775-1860), lived in one of these cottages during his elder years—with his daughter, Anne Jane (1812-1893), and her husband, John Rodgers (1809-1913), who worked as a herd for the Earl.
