There was a brother William Andrew born in 1878, i found him in the 1901 census but not in the 1911 census as he was blind or deaf and dumb. His mum was Eliza nee Boyd born 1841 who married William Clarke, Lizzie Clarke born 1874, Annie Clarke born 1876 who was my husband William loughridge grandnother, and Maggie born 1880 who married Robert Blakeley, hope this helps

Where did you find William Andrew in 1901? if he was living in Ireland in 1911 he should be listed in the census

hello there aghadowey i am margarets daughter and have taken on this family tree as a project if you will i have been confused by this mystery for at least 5 years, William Andrew does just seem to disappear from records sadly and we have no idea where he was buried either, it is something my dad named after him has always wanted to know so we can pay our respects  too our relatives, in 1901 i believe he was in Union St in Ballymoney i could be wrong here but we have been told William Andrew was blind and dumb so we don't believe he would have left his home, or Ireland for that... so if anyone has any info i would love to know too add to the family tree descendant report i have

It is a bit confusing as this thread started out about McClures (as in the title) and now you're l;ooking for a William Andrew Clarke but a few points as you don't seem to know the area too well.

William Andrew Clarke born 1876 just outside ballymoney a place called ballyveely road may have been called castle quarter lower back then
Castlequarter is the district (D.E.D. in census) not the name of the place. Road names only started being used in the country from about the 1970s so before that date the address would have been the townland.

Ballyveely is divided into two townlands- Upper and Lower. In 1901 there's a John Clarke and family here- no sign of a William-
www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Antrim/Castlequarter/Ballyveely_Lr_/944074

in 1901 i believe he was in Union St in Ballymoney
There are no Clarkes in Union St., Ballymoney in 1901 but there are some in there in 1911 (but not a William Clarke)
