Great site. My uncle (Father's brother) was David Cook, as shown on your site as:

T8746 Driver David Cook
Royal Army Service Corps 17th HT Coy.

Died 10th April 1921
Aged 31

Son of David & Jane Cook
Husband of Ellen, Killowen Street, Coleraine
Interred in Greenwich Shooters Cemetery, Woolwich B. 3, C 538

I do wish that I had a picture to send you but alas I do not! I can certainly provide some details about his early life if desired.

Thank you for putting him on your site. They shall never die as long as their names are read.

My mother was Anne Fleming. She came to America in the 1920s. She and her family attended the Dunluce Presbyterian Church outside Bushmills. She came from a family of 13 children, 4 of whom came to the US. She had two cousins killed in WW I but I don't know their names or if they were from the Fleming or the MacMaster side of the family. I have no contact with anyone from my mother's family in N. Ireland. Those that die in wars are always so young. So sad. Bill Jillson

Mary, I have a great granny named Sarah Keenan Murphy who was 65 yo in 1901 census of Belfast and lived 10 McMilan's Pl with Robert and son, Thomas. She was born in White Haven England. Sarah also lived at 28 Cullingtree Rd for years and 42 Peel St. Belfast. Robert is buried in Milltown as I am sure Sarah is too. Think she died 1909 and she isnt showing up in 1911 census. Sarah and Robert were married in St Malachy's RCC Dec 1859. We may have a common link. Any info is welcomed.

Wonderful site. I was attracted due to your Keenan family tree. I had a hard time finding where your Keenan's originated. I have been trying to track my Keenan roots in County Down (Ards Penninsula) for quite some time. My ggg grandparents; Felix and Sarah (McQuoid) Keenan;b. 1814/1809;IRL had a son, John who was baptized in Kircubbin, Co. Down in 1835. Felix and family immigrated to the Dearham, Cumberland, ENG area about 1845.
If you see a connection, drop me a line. Keep up the good work.
Best regards,
Chuck Keenan

My husband's Caldwell Ancestors were brought to Toronto about 1866 reportedly by the Moses Staunton & Son - Wallpaper company from Belfast. His 3 X great grandfather went to Belfast from Glascow as a teenager to appretice in the trade. He and his family went to Toronto about 1866 and in 1870 the Robertson & Cooks Toronto City Directory showed him as "head block cutter & designer at M. Staunton & Son. Also listed working for the company were two sons listed as an "engineer" and "blockprinter." The family continued in the wallpaper business in Toronto, Buffalo, NY, New Brunswich, N.J. and through the early 1900'ds in York, PA.

This site is beyond excellent! I heard that the family owned a store in Belfast, but never had any proof of it until I found your site. They owned the McCartin Store on Smithfield. It was a hardware store. I hope you might be able to help me. My great-grandfather left Belfast in 1916 with his wife and grandfather. He left his mother and many siblings, but I can't locate them past the 1911 census. Would you mind looking to see if you have anything for a James or Patrick McCartin? Any Ann Jane, John or Vera Gallagher's? Thank you so much!! I keep thinking if I can see how long the store lasted, I might know how long they stayed in the area. I can't find any McCartin's in the directories for now. smile

My mother-in-law gave me some jewellery purchased from Rankin Bros in Belfast (case included the name and address) so your site has let me date when the business operated from the said premises. I can now try and work out the family connection.

Thank you for all of your efforts. It must have been a tremendous amount of work.

I appreciate the tremendous effort you have made in bringing all the directory, links and history information to people like me, especially those of us so far away.

Thanks to Jack on Jean McCarthy's website I now know that my great great grandfather William BELL of Templepatrick married Eve HILL in St Anne's in 1830. Their son Robert (my GGF) was also baptised in the same ch in 1833. I have no knowledge of where Wm and Eve were born or are buried.

I have found your site search facility of great help in allowing me to find what you do have on your site and recommend it's use to other viewers.

Cheers and Thanks again from the other side of the world.

This is a great site which has helped me follow my relatives movements using the street directories. Through Eddies extracts I discovered an uncle who died of the flu in 1918. I am looking for information on Coopers who may have come from Rostrevor and a Father Peter McPolin who was my father's cousin.

My grandfather was a gunner in the 23rd Battery.
Sadly he passed away a long time ago but the memories of the stories he told me have come flooding back since finding this fantastic site.
His name was Leonard C Cain & he lived in Hertfordshire after returning from Burma. He lived there with his wife Ellen who was originally from Oldham, Lancashire.
He would often mention his best friend Brownie (GNR A Brown) who I believe was from the Essex area. If anyone reading this knows of any relatives of 'Brownie', I would love to hear from them.
Thanks for creating such a fab website!!

Was interested to note in Islandmagee entries for Robert Houston and Samuel Houston, farmers, Cloughfin. These are my forefathers. Am trying to make some sort of order in geanology, as there are so many Roberts, Williams, Samuels, James and Thomas Houstons. Was delighted to see their names. I have the feeling This Robert Houston may have been my grandfather's grandfather. Well I will keep trying. What year was this list of names in Islandmagee for?? Thanks. Theresa Angel (nee Houston)
