Hi,
    This may also be yours. 26 May 1881 Alexander Clarke married Elizabeth Wilson in Dromore Unitarian Presbyterian Church, Banbridge District, Co. Down.

Regards

Possibly this couple in 1901-

Checked out the census thanks - Alexander Clarke & Elizabeth Wilson cannot be mine the ages don't work.  If Elizabeth had my relative in about 1854 she would be over 60 in 1901, this one is just 48.  Thanks anyway, at least that clears one up.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Yes, Iím related, but Iím afraid I donít know much more information other than someone on another site (Iím new here and donít know if I can mention it), thinks that Richard Coulterís siblings were born in Monaghan. Perhaps youíve also seen this.

Not sure about this, Monaghan appears to be southern Ireland my Richard was born in Northern Ireland unless the border changed?  Sorry I have no info on any of his siblings if he had any.

The border has actually only been there since the 1920s, so back then it would have been all Ireland and Iíd say Monaghan geographically, especially back then, could still be considered in the north in that regard.

Of course, sorry about that. I just googled Monaghan and saw it in the south, my mistake.

send a couple of PM's to you

County Monaghan is one of the 9 Ulster counties but 3 of them (Monaghan, Cavan & Donegal) are not part of Northern Ireland.
