I use this page often but I am wondering If you are related to people I am doing research for who migrated to australia and are their surname if Wylie? Their Grandfather was Frederick Ernest Wylie 1886 who died 1925 in Sydney Australia?

Please contact me if you are they have a Michael Wylie in Belfast who is their cousin

Stumbled across this interesting site.........saw the name of a Patrick A. Marrinan listed.........this has aroused my curiosity as my mothers maiden name is also Marrinan..............this is a rare surname to be mainly found in Co. Clare....are there any other family background details available for the said Patrick marrinan ?
Would love to hear of any details !!!

Like what you've done to remember vets of WWI. My uncle Thomas Rogers and his brother, Patrick, who were born in Glasdrumman in Down, emigrated to US and served in WWI. Patrick was killed in the Battle of Belleau Wood on June 22, 1918. When I find a picture of him I will send so that he can be memorialized at your site.

I am a relative of the Canning family. My mother was Mary Gayle Canning, daughter of Dr. Charles Hewson Canning and Margaret Gayle Balsinger of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I am trying to make sense of the rest of the Canning family, but it's complicated! Very glad to visit your site and will keep searching to put the puzzle together! Thanks for the information I've gotten so far!.

I have been searching for the Regimental Medical Officer of 10th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles who cared for my kinsman, Second Lieutenant Bertram Corbett killed in action in France on 3 July 1916. With his Colonel and Company Commander dead, Captain Fullerton wrote most movingly to Bertie's Widow in Ulster. I believe this must be A. Fullerton MD, surgeon, of 8, University Square, Belfast. I will do some more research in the records of the Royal Army Medical Corps. Thank you

Just found this page. Was scrolling through for Doherty ancestors and had little information on Patrick Joseph Doherty. He was my great grandmother's brother. When I was scrolling I started seeing some of the info I have. Then saw much I did not and all of the sudden his picture is in front of me! Never had a picture of him, it gave me chills to see him finally. I have a letter he wrote his sister, my great grandmother, from the HMS Lion. It was probably the last communication she had from him. I really want to thank you for this site and can't wait to show family what I have found here. Thank you again.

Re my post yesterday. I have just spoken to Mum and apparently Richard Shepherd Close's brother was also involved in the Henry McNeill Company, George Alfred Close. Also her mother Dorothy Shenton, nee Close, and her sister Dorothy Glover (nee Close) were also directors. Mum also remembers visiting the Manager who she thinks was called Henry? Forbes, she only ever called him Mr. Forbes. He lived in a bungalow out of town in the countryside. I would be very interested to know if anyone has any memories of them

I came across your site whilst searching for Henry McNeill and found "McNeill, Henry, Limited, proprietors of Main Street Hotel, King's Arms Hotel, Lancashire and Yorkshire Hotel, Eagle Hotel, Garron Tower Hotel and Posting Establishment" My Great Grandfather Richard Shepherd Close was the Chairman of Directors of Henry McNeill Ltd. My mother remembers often visiting The Kings Arms in Larne and her mother Marjorie and Aunt Dorothy crocheting mats for the dressing tables in the hotel and visiting the Manager who used to live in a farm? Every year they used to receive a Turkey from the Hotel which used to arrive in a basket, complete with feathers! Was good to find some more information. I believe the Kings Arms has now been demolished. I've looked on Google Street View, is it now Dunnes Stores?

Great website. I found it hunting for information on a banner found in my wife's late Aunt's belongings.
One side of the banner is identical to the cover page on the Regimental Gazette and the other side has the Crown, Eagle, and Faugh A Ballagh on a Black, Red, Faded Green, Red, and Faded Green striped background.
If anyone has any information I'd love to hear.
I lived in the same neighborhood with the Fusiliers' families in Tripoli in 1959 to 1963. I'd just about forgotten. The memories come from the most unexpected sources.

Interested in the McQuiggs of Islandcarragh and Bushmills area along with the McAfees. (Sam McQuigg farm photo posted here).

Sarah McAfee married John McQuigg in Co. Antrim. They came over on the "New York" arriving in New York City, NY, USA in July of 1843. Sarah's father, William McAfee (or McDuffee) Sr. and his wife, Margaret "Martha" Taggart", came over on the ship, "St. Andrew", arriving in New York City, NY on June 7th, 1838. William McAfee's father was John McAfee (or McDuffee). John came from Scotland with William McQuigg as young men before 1794. John McAfee and William McAfee lived around Ballymagarry in Dunluce Parish. I descend thru William McAfee's son, Mathew McAfee. The McAfees and McQuiggs were Presbyterians and farmers. William McAfee Sr. & his family settled near Dalton, Ohio. John McQuigg & Sarah McAfee lived near Wooster, Ohio both in Wayne Co.
