Antrim / Taggerty/Andrews marriage 1937
« on: Saturday 05 October 13 09:11 BST (UK)  »
Hello to all rootschatters,

I have been sent a photo of the above marriage in Belfast in 1937 - Beaudeau Taggerty (perhaps Taggarty) to Edith Andrews.  Apparently they are distant relations of mine, but for the moment I have no idea where they fit in !!  Especially the first name, Beaudeau, I 've never heard of that before !
If anyone can be of any help at all, I would really appreciate it.
Many thanks, Liz

Mayo / Walter & Michael McGEE
« on: Monday 15 July 13 14:28 BST (UK)  »
Hello Rootschatters ! 
I am looking for information re the above McGee family.  Walter & Michael were both tried in Castlebar and found guilty of stealing a few heifers in 1847.  They were sent to Dublin to both Mountjoy and Kilmainham prisons, and were then sent to Tasmania (Van Diemens Land) on the ss Blenheim in 1849.  I have a lot of information from there on -
However, I would very much like to know who their parents were and hence be able to trace a step or two further back ...  Walter was probably born about 1825-26 (or possibly 1820).  I realise that I am probably looking for a needle in a haystack, but any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for that - the 1911 census has Robert as MEAKLIM

I've never heard of Drumhillery !  I suppose it can't be too far away from Middletown ... I'll have to go and have a look when I am back in the summer.

Armagh / Re: Isaac Johnston, Armagh

Hello to everyone !
Further to my queries about my great grandfather Isaac , I have done a bit of work since then ....
Isaac's sister , Sarah Jane Johnston married John Gillanders in 1889 in Middletown, Doogary, Tynan.
They may have gone to America, and had two children there, Samuel & Rachel.  (the census sheets for 1901 and 1911 gives their births in America but also in Co Armagh).  It looks as if Sarah Jane died in 1900 but I can't find confirmation of this ... in the 1901 census John Gillanders is living with his widowed mother and he is a widower and there are three sons, Samuel , William & Thomas James. In 1901 his daughter Rachel is with her grandmother Johnston in Middletown. 
I think Rachel married Robert Meaklim in 1908, but again I have no confirmation of this.  As far as I know, Robert was a carpenter and he may have died in 1955.  I don't know whether it is possible to find records for this date, or to discover where they might be buried, nor indeed if they had any  children.  I would really like to know if the descendants of this family are still in Armagh.
Many thanks for any help at all !

Here is widow Rachel & family in Middletown, Doogary, Tynan in the 1901 census.  The grand-daughter Rachel Gillanders would suggest perhaps that it was Martha Johnston who married a Mr Gillander, but I can't find the marriage.  In the 1911 census there is a Samuel Gillanders who must be Rachel's brother ...   I would be grateful for any help.

I think I may have found Isaac's sister Ellen in the 1910 directory living in Navan St Armagh .......

I don't know why I always imagined that Isaac was an only child ... perhaps because my grandparents never really talked about family and as a child I certainly never asked any questions !!  But four brothers and sisters , so one of the girls must have married a Mr Ryder .  Many thanks indeed for your help, Liz
