Hello kingskerswell
In the 1901 census I have Michael widower living with his family no mention of Doran? is that a typo?
 "Michael can be found in the 1901 census as a widower living with the Doran Family"
Many thanks for your help

Joe

Hi Joe,
         There are two men named Michael Sands living in Co. Armagh and both are widowers in the 1901 census. I seem to have picked the wrong one. Sorry for that.

Regards
Stewart, Irwin, Morrison, Haslett, Murrell - Dungiven area Co. Londonderry
Browne, Barrett -Co.Armagh
Neil, Smyth _Co. Antrim

Thanks aghadowey
I do not think that is the same family but I will try and check further. The local Armagh papers have nothing but I will try the Belfast ones.
Thank you

Why not same family?

It looks like James is indexed as John Sands as Gaffy suspected back in 2014.

4 Sept 1914 at the Military Hospital, John Sands, Solider died from a fracture to the base of the scull and cardiac syncope
