Thanks Kiltaglassan, you have spared me the distinct possibility of embarrassing myself by failing miserably to provide the link.

Galway Girl, I thought you might like to know that, just today, Military Archives (Ireland) uploaded onto their website additional files under their Military Service Pensions Collection. This collection contains files of people claiming military service during the 1916 rising, war of independence, civil war etc. Contained in the new data is a claim for a military pension from James Joseph Spollen of 21 Temple Cottages, Broadstone. Hopefully, you will be able to find the file, if not, let me know and I will try to provide you with a link to it.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to reply. I will let you know if I make any progress.


Armagh / Unusual request for photograph of a doorstep!
« on: Saturday 07 November 20 10:45 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, my grandmother was Mary Cannon from Meenacarn, Letermacaward County Donegal. She had 10 brothers. At some stage over 100 years ago some of the brothers got hold of a large flat stone and engraved it with the words HOME SWEET HOME. THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME. It was then embedded in the ground at the front door of the cottage. To cut a long story short, I am aware the stone was relocated from the cottage to a new build house in or around the village of Forkhill, County Armagh. To be very clear, this is not an attempt to 'reclaim' the stone. On the contrary, I am delighted the stone found a new lease of life in front of what I assume is a lively, vibrant home. What I would love is a good quality scan of the stone so I can forward it to distant cousins in America who are aware of the story of the stone. If anyone knows the location of this stone, I would be most grateful if you could let the owner know of my request.

Thank you.

Antrim / Re: Collins Street, Belfast?

My best guess is Colin Street, which ran from Falls Road to Ross Street, with Mary Street running off it. If one person is saying it and another person is writing it down, it would sound like Collins Street, if you know what I mean!   

Thanks to Sandra, oldohiohome and Kloumann for your additional posts. More distant cousins to add to my Gallagher family tree.


Thanks Sandra and Kloumann. What I am trying to establish is if Hugh and his wife Anne Theresa had any children.


Hi, I was wondering if anyone can turn up an obituary for Hugh M Gallagher of Bridgeport Connecticut. He died on 19th February 1995 aged 75. His wife was named Anne. He was the son of Hugh Gallagher senior. He was born on 5th January 1920.

Thank you.

Thanks gaffy. That certainly looks like the Hugh Cannon I am interested in. His parents were indeed John Cannon and Sheila(Sisley) McHugh. It also ties in with the death notice Sinann reproduced stating Hugh's wife was called Hannah. They must have married in Scotland and moved back to Northern Ireland. Thanks again.
