Given your mention of Rose Devlin (as a witness to Lizzie McMullan's 1900 marriage), I  briefly rooted around for a McMullan-Devlin angle and in so doing happened upon a transcript of a marriage for a William McMullan and a Catherine Devlin in 1856 in Duneane RC church. This couple went on to have children baptised in Duneane RC parish: Thomas bap. 1857, John bap. 1864, James bap. 1866, Nathaniel bap. 1869, William bap. 1871
, and Elizabeth bap. 1874 - I struggled to find any associated civil birth registrations, maybe someone else with fresher eyes can. 

But the only reason I mention this at all is that the stated address in the last two baptismal records (William in 1871 and Elizabeth in 1874) was the townland of Muckrim, which borders Millquarter...

Do you think this is a possibility?

I have just obtained a copy of the church marriage records for Elizabeth ( Lizzie) McMullan to John Murray.  It states that Elizabethís motherís name is Catherine nee Devlin.  This means that  gaffe was correct from the start. I am now finally sure I am at last on the correct course. Thanks again gaffe and all.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help needed interpreting 1939 census

Can you interpret the codes.

I've just found the marriage record for Michael McMullan and Rose McNeill.  I think this is what I'm looking for.  If it turns out that Rose is named on Mary and Lizzies birth records then bingo.

I think the Mary McLenaghan married to Lawrence is William McMullans daughter.  Cant be absolutely sure without record of wedding.  Who is her mother?
Any ideas?

Thanks all,
The source is the birth record of William McMullan in 1902, present at birth was what looks like Mary Mc Lenaghan/Louaghan or something similar, the sister of Lizzy McMullan.

I thought that Rose Devlin might have been the married name of another sister but I'm clutching at straws here.

Yes this is the family.  I have the 1901 and 1911 census records for the family but I'm stuck with Lizzie Murrays father Wm McMullan.  I cant seem to find any of this family.  Lizzies first two sons John and William, were born in Ballyscullion at what I presume was either Wm Mc Mullans home or Lizzies sister Mary Mc Lenaghan named as present at Williams birth.
I am hoping that someone on here or from a local historical society will have some information.

Antrim / looking for information on William MCMullan, Millquarter Ballyscullion
« on: Wednesday 27 May 20 22:30 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for information on William McMullan of Millquarter Ballyscullion or there about. He had a daughter (Lizzie) married in Belfast in 1900 at the age of 23 years.  The bridesmaids name was Rose Devlin.
He had another daughter called Mary McLouaghan "I think", its difficult to make out.

Any help would much appreciated.

Can anyone help identify my grandfathers WW2 uniform.
He served in both the Boer War and WW1.  This uniform is from WW2.  We can find no records of his WW2 service.  Here is what we have to go on.

His name was Robert Maguire.
His medal ribbons are for the;

Boer War
Queen's South Africa medal and the clasps for Cape Colony, Transvaal and Orange Free State.
The King's South Africa Medal and the standard South Africa 1901 & 1902 clasps. .

The British War Medal.
The Victory Medal.
The 1941 Star Medal.

His DOB was 01/10/1881 making him 58Years old in 1939.  Too old for the regular army.
He was stationed only in Northern Ireland throughout WW2.
