Tyrone / Re: John Sayers (1850-1892) parents info
« on: Friday 18 June 21 10:23 BST (UK)  »
The one issue I do have is that he doesn't mention a son John in America even tho he specifically mentions the married daughters who have already had their share.  And who is John Sayers who is the informant on the death in 1892?  Possible that John in the US is the son of William noted as the witness to John Sr.'s marriage.  He does name his only son as William.

I said it was a possible family tree because I'm not convinced either but possibly related in some way.

It is son Joseph Sayers who was informant on death of John Sayers in 1892.

1st Derry Presbyterian Church is in Templemore Parish, County Londonderry.

PRONI holds the microfilm of the records (not online). Coleraine Library should also have a copy of the microfilms (my list isn't handy) but access again is not online.

You should be able to pay by credit card-

Several mentions of Kingsway Hospital in 1970s here- not sure if any of them are the event you are looking for-

I have found an online tree indicating that they were married in Philadelphia.  Both children were baptized in the Presbyterian Church so there's a clue.

Son William Harvey was actually baptised in the 4th Reformed Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia so the family were more likely to be Reformed Presbyterian rather than Presbyterian in Ireland.

Reformed Presbyterian also fits with this family-

Thanks so much to both of you for your estimated time period. I'd love it we could narrow down the years, and find any hints as to whether this photo was taken in Belfast or Dundee (the two most probable locations for the photo).

Difficult to pinpoint a location of a studio photograph without any details of photographer on it (either on front or back)
