Hi Guys,

Could someone do a nice natural colour and restore on this one please?

Sadly the whole family have now passed. Photo taken in Dublin of the Nixon Family in 1939.

Would someone be willing at having a go at adding colour I would love to give it as a gift to my half aunt as it contains a photo of her birth mother, aunts, uncles and grandparents whom she never got to meet in person.

Kind Regards
Kenny

Dublin / Esther Nixon - Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown
« on: Monday 03 January 22 21:25 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Guys,

Hope you can help. I have searched findmy grave, ancestry and contacted all known living family members.

I am searching for Esther Hanora Nixon born 23 Mar 1910, Newbridge Street, Birr, Kings County (Offaly).

Photo taken August 1939 on the steps of her parents home:
8 Clarinda Park, Dún Laoghaire.

We know that Esther had polio as a child and wore a leg brace.

Her mother Annie Nixon died in 1940 and her father Patrick Nixon died in 1953.

She was last seen to our knowledge living at the parents address in Dún Laoghaire but we cannot find out what happened to Esther. Her family are well recorded in newspapers births deaths and marriages etc.. but we believe Esther never married and we cannot find when she died or where she was buried.

Any tips to help us learn what happened to Esther would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Antrim / William Lowry 1st Wife?
« on: Sunday 31 October 21 16:21 GMT (UK)  »
William Lowry returned to North Ireland to find a wife and brought Catherine Stewart from Portglenone, Co. Antrim back to the USA with him in 1898. She stayed with cousins (unknown) in New Jersey. They married 1898 in PA, USA.

On the marriage cert however William had been married before which was news to us.
Was he previously married in North Ireland or USA. Who was this mystery 1st wife he never spoke of?  Was there any children to the 1st marriage? Did his 1st wife die in the USA or North Ireland.

Image is the marriage cert of his 2nd marriage from 1898. Anyone able to help with this mystery?
