When was the last sighting of David Donaldson Snr in Ireland ?  1901 / 1911 ?

Sandra

David Senior is in neither as far as I can see.

But this is David the son in 1901 see link
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Antrim/St__Anne_s/Ballymurphy_Street/981789/

This was an Industrial School off the Falls Road in Belfast it was for both orphans and boys put in for punishment.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Down/Pottinger__part_of_/Vulcan_Street/223860/

This link in 1911 is for Mary Donaldson David seniors wife. Big problem with looking up anyone at that time was the fact they moved house so many times.

By the way thank you so much for your help Sandra and a very Happy New Year to you and your family.

That seems to be them Sandra. David the son left a soldiers will with all his effects going to his mother Mary no mention of his father at all on the will. By the way David seniors profession as a weaver can help in tracing him against other David Donaldson's. Another thing was that David seniors father I believe was called Joseph from Lisburn and he was a Catholic. By the way Donaldson was the English version of McDonald. I have been told that this was prevalent around the time of the Famine when in orderto get food some Catholics changed their names and religion in order to get food.
