Hi,
I am trying to find info on a Barbara McKinstry who emigrated from N Ireland to USA, don't know when. I have located a Barbara McKinstry in the 1930 US census living in Philadelphia. The problem is there are only 3 people showing on the census sheet for their household, and they are all children;
Archibald McMurray aged 8, Gloria McMurray age 0 and Barbara McKinstry aged 14. Their details are at the very top of the census page, so the other members of the household must be at the bottom of the previous page, but I cannot locate the previous page.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Paul

Ken and Pam Linge   EMail here
send them a link to this topic

Dathai, thanks so much for your advice. I took it, and sent an e-mail to Ken and Pam. My intention was to provide them with more details about James Liddy but they already had a record of him on their database, which even included a photo. They sent me a copy of the photo which is something I never thought I would acquire. Thanks again for your help and advice.
Paul.

dathai, as always, thanks for the additional information. Great find re the Deansgrange family plot for Patrick and Mabel Liddy. I wonder if the Charles Liddy interred there is 'our' Charles, or Patrick and Mabel's son, who was 8 years old in the 1911 census.
I will indeed e-mail Ken and Pam Linge with the additional information relating to James Liddy,died 6th September 1916. Thank you for the link.
Paul.

Kiltaglassan, I did consider that possibility and I hope that is the reason there is no record for him. He would have been 89 years of age in 1970 but lets hope he was still hale and hearty.

Caroline, when your father and my wife's father arrived at Connolly train station(separately and at different times) from Belfast in the 1940's on their way to their Liddy relatives at Clontarf, I wonder did they know they had Liddy blood relatives living directly across the road from the station at 37 Amiens Street?

Sorry for the delay in replying. I enquired on another forum how to go about getting James Liddy's details updated on CWGC website, now that we know who his parents, next of kin are. Got a mixed response, some positive, saying go for it, you have the proof. Others saying you have no chance, CWGC are very reluctant to change/add details, especially when there is no headstone for the dead soldier.(James is only remembered on Thiepval  memorial). But what did come to light is that it appears James' brother Charles Liddy also served, as a sapper in Royal Engineers, service number 140110. He survived the war and gave his contact address as St Peter's Road Dublin when he was demobbed. Which brings me to my next question. What became of this Charles Liddy? Born Belfast 1881, on 1901 census at 37 Amiens Street Dublin aged 20 confectioner, on 1911 census at 40 St Peter's Road Dublin aged 29 carpenter. I can find no death for a Charles Liddy after 1919 anywhere in Ireland. Am I doing something wrong?
Paul.
