Is Harry, died 3 October 1942, the son born in Glasgow on 5 April 1902 and registered as Henry after his grandfather? Or was there another son named Harold who died on 3 October 1942 and is buried in Yokohama? And if so, when was he born?

A supplementary question relating to this family. Charles Crossan, 94 Bogside, son of Charles Crossan, dealer, married in Derry in 1935.

Charles Jr was born at 110 Bogside. Several of his sisters were born at 94 Bogside.

In the 1911 census, the family are listed at 94 Fahan Street.

What, if any, is the relationship between Bogside and Fahan Street?

Thank you.

So could 94 Fahan Street and 94 Bogside be the same house?

Their Daughter Isabella Francis Crossen married William McCafferty in Glasgow.  I am working on their grandson Raymond's ancestry.  I am new to Irish research and any help will be appreciated.

I have seen the marriage certificate of Wm McCafferty, aged 43, 2 Donegal Place, Derry, son of James McCafferty, labourer, to Isabella Crossan, aged 28, 94 Bogside Street, Derry, daughter of Charles Crossan, dealer in cattle. They were married by Wm Murphy, CC, in the Roman Catholic Church of Strabane, County Tyrone, on 7 February 1935, and the witnesses were Charlie Crossan and Bridie Crossan.

William McCafferty was born on 22 April 1889 in Port Glasgow, parents James McCafferty, carter, and Mary Ann Breslin, who were married in Strabane on 1 August 1885. In 1901 and 1911 the family were living in Londonderry.

Thank you, Ronan, that is very interesting. I apologise for being slow to responde, but I have been away from home and had missed the e-mail notifying me of your reply.

I would be very interested in anything your aunt would be able to tell me about the Crossan family.
