Sligo / Horan Family 1800 to 1900
« on: Saturday 22 August 20 22:27 BST (UK)  »
Am wondering if there is anyone out there who may have contacts with The Horan famiyl 1800-1900.
This is the family of my late  husband,Drew.   He often referred to them as coming from Sligo.
This is what I have so far
John Horan c1830 married to Winifred McFarry. His son is Michael Horan born c1850 married to Mary Dolan, His siblings were Catherine, Michael Teirnan and John  c1876. John came to Edinburgh, married and had a son John my father in law. John went from Edinburgh to USA twice but returned to Edinburgh and died 1920.
Any help would be great, I am sorry I dont have more details.

Kind regards Lynda

Kincardineshire / John Carnegie Allan, 1849 - c1881
« on: Saturday 25 January 14 16:57 GMT (UK)  »
Here I go again...John Carnegie Allan born Aberdeen and baptised in 1849...son of William Allan and Catharine Carnegie.  Married Helen Wemyss c 1878 in Bervie.  Daughter Susan Ann Allan born in 1880 in Bervie.  In 1881 Helen is listed as a widow in the census in Bervie. 
John was a ships carpenter.  Does this mean he would have been aboard a ship or on land?

I have found one death for a John Allan on marine register from Scotland on board the Diana.  He was stabbed/murdered.

I am not sure if this is the one I am looking for.

I wonder if any of you can help me.  One of my ladies in Edinburgh has asked me to take a wee look at her family history...she will be 90 this year and will have been married for 70 years in August.
Her grandfather was Andrew William Stewart who was born in Holywell c 1868. (according to the census in 1911).   He married Jean Steadman, but I cannot find a marriage cert for this.  They had six children all born in Edinburgh.  Whilst she remembers him, he never spoke about his family or roots.  She knew he came from Wales.  He worked in a laundry in Edinburgh, but ended up as proprietor of a hotel in Ayr.  Would any one out there be able to help me with his parents and where they lived and what they did.

Thanks in anticipation as she would be very interested in knowing about her family.

Wondered if anyone can  help me locate a headstone/grave please.  I have a William Allan, died 8th June 1855.  He was a seaman from a steam ship called 'City of London'.    The ship was bound for Glasgow, via London. His death registered in Lambeth.  I am trying to find out where he was buried if this is possible.
Thanks, Lynda
