In the 1901 census the daughter Kate is at home but as Catherine. The mother had died in 1887. In the 1911 census they have moved from 14 Legaltan to #16. Kate is home but the father  is gone (died in 1903) and so is John and Robert George (you indicated they moved to Belfast) . The house at #16 is now occupied by William David, his wife Nellie and new son Thomas. Also Katie (Kate) and boarders Mary Irving and John McClay.

Be aware that the numbers shown on transcribed census page are the numbers given by the enumerators for that particular census and it's possible the family were actually in the same house in both 1901 and 1911. For most places the only 'address' was the townland- it was only cities and towns that would have used street names and house numbers. You can look at the other census information available to see how many rooms the house had, etc.

Thanks Rathmore
The sign in front of the church in Aug 2004 read
Church of Ireland
Diocese of Raphoe
Parish of Kilbarron
It is also refered to St. Anne's Church of Ireland on the internet

Question: Is there any other old Church of Ireland gravesites in the Ballyshannon area? I can't find any graves for the Anderson's relatives that died 1850 to 1905

I purchased the following small book in Donegal Town in 2004 which might be of interest to people who want info on Ballyshannon including the area 1901 and 1911 census, some maps and some history, etc.

We have just received a lovely package from Winnipeg (Mark and Pat) with lots of information on the Anderson family, many many thanks!
Happy New Year to all Rootschat members and I would like to thank everyone who has helped me progress my family tree.

Trying again on this thread of the Anderson Family!
John Anderson, son of Thomas, was 20 in the 1901 Census, but I can't find him on the 1911 census. did he die before 1911 or did he marry and leave the area, did he emigrate like like his brother William did in 1913?
I would appreciate any help in finding more info on John,
Betty

PRONI lists the Will of John's father- perhaps it would indicate where John is (or if he's dead):
"Probate of the Will of Thomas Anderson late of Legaltion Ballyshannon County Donegal Farmer who died 2 August 1903 granted at Londonderry to Thomas Morrow Farmer and Andrew N. Anderson Merchant."
