Obit, Robert Caulfield, died Oct 29, 1930, Magherafelt
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 22:51 BST (UK) »
Robert Caulfield was married to Annie Mary Porter. He died Oct 29, 1930 and she died Jan 18, 1936. Wondering if there is an obit for either of them, especially Robert.
Thanks for any help

You could write to the local paper in Magherafelt asking for information.

 That is a good idea .  I did Google newspapers in Magherafelt. and came up with the Irish News and I did email them. Would there be a better paper to write to?
Thank you

Thank you MaureeninNY,
I have been busily figuring out the different mourners. Robert and Annie's daughter Margaret Jane married a Joseph Wylie so these Wylies are probably grandsons. as are Alexander P. Caulfield and Bertie.

Great. Got a handle on most, except that I have a John Atkinson married to Annie Mary Cauffileld who may be the same person as Jack Acheson. Quite likely.
Thanks for the update.
