Desperately seeking William

William O’Doherty’s parents came from Carndonagh and he became an MP in 1900 in the Khaki election. Five years later he collapsed in the House of Parliament AGED 37 and was buried in Carndonagh. I am researching his life but unfortunately he is not related to any of the Doherty/O’Doherty families of Carndonagh. If you can help me locate some of his family connections I would be grateful as I am hoping to find some photographs. He married Margaret Mitchell in Derry and had 4 children the eldest being Mary Ethna. See an account of his life which I wrote in www.
