Marriage of Edward (father Lawrence) & Susan in 1898 show them both residing in Cahore townland. Son Edward born there in 1902-

This birth in 1878 for Edward Lawrence Bradly shows his father as Lawrence and mother Ann Quigly and birthplace as Bancran (Bancran Glebe, Ballynascreen civil parish- west of Draperstown)

Cahore townland runs south from Draperstown so not far away from where Edward was born-

Even more sad, and a bit eerie...Edward's son, Daniel..who was 3 when Edward unexpectedly passed away....died of a PE (pulmonary Embolism) in 1950, here in the states in Beacon, NY at the age of 38...leaving my father who was only 8 and his brother 7 and my grandmother Mary Morse Bradley, entirely too early....

Do you know why there is a gap in the census from 1851 to 1901?
I am looking for the 1891...

The first complete census for Ireland is 1901- only small fragments of earlier ones for a few areas survive. For County Derry there is the 1831 but only head of household listed by name.

Back to hospital for evening visiting but will try to post more later if I get a chance.
