Sarah Russell (born: July 1925) Belfast area
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 19:29 BST (UK) »
Sarah, was the daughter of Henry Russell and Letitia Trelford. I don't think she had any siblings, though one of her mothers sisters, ie: Margaret Trelford married  a  Robert Russell, and had three children:  Thomas,  David and Margaret  (all born between 1917-25). 

I know that Sarah was living in Oct 2007, when she posted a blog on another website regarding the background of the Trelford family who lived in the Drumbeg area, County Antrim. As I am distantly connected, I was hoping that someone might know what happened her, and possibly the sources of the info which she mentioned in her blog. If anyone can help me, please get in touch.

If she was born in 1925 she could still be alive. If that's the case perhaps she's in a nursing home and/or not online anymore.

Yes, that is possible. The question remains though, from where did she obtain the information given on her post? For example, she mentions a James Trelford (born 1720) and the names of two likely brothers. I have looked at the baptismal records of Drumbeg Parish Church, which seems to be the family burying ground, though the records don't cover that period. Sarah's post states that James Trelford (b:1720) was married and had 5 children, his brother, Wm was married and had one daughter, and the other brother, John was married with 6 children. My problem is, who is the father of William Trelford (1782-1838), James or John?

For reference, here's a link to Trelford blog- there is one comment to that post from a person I believe is a Coates descendant- have you tried contacting him yet?

Thanks, though the reply to her blog was from myself.
