Hi Folks.
I have read a couple of posts from Steve193 dated 2014. To clarify here, Samuel Reuben McNamara was the husband of Rose Talbot, they divorced and he then married Marie Durham. Their children were unaware for many years that they had a half-sister, Eileen. He was the son of Emily Harrison McNamara, who married Thomas Edward McNamara. He died in the early 1970s when he was run over by a bus just after leaving the Alexandria pub in Garston - not drunk, as he never had more than a couple of pints at that time. I used to have a drink with him, my dad and my uncle Tommy McNamara (Jr) in the Alex. My mother was the sister of Sammy. I would love to get a copy of any certificates involving Sammy, as I am by default the family historian.
On another post, mention is made of Emily Harrison Millea. My grandmother, Emily Harrison McNamara, was her aunt.

If anyone is in contact (off here) with Steve193, could you tell him please that I have sent him a message.  He was last active in 2016. Thanks.

if it is the same Emily Harrison she was married to Michael Millea. They once lived in Speke Road Gardens. Hope this is helpful

Yes emily was my aunty and micky millea was her husband and also my dads best friend as kids.

My grannie who was annie harrison and her son freddie harrison lived in the tennies after grannie left king street.

Someone mentioned the bear of woolton was a boxer and lived in thomas street.  This is very interesting.  I was told he may be related to some of my family and would visit my great grandmother i think it was, hannah miller known locally as granny miller as she got older. I think she lived in vulcan st.  Edited to say i just found my original post about the bear of woolton and it was my dads mum annie harrison nee hart who he used to visit when she lived on king st.  My grannie was born in garston in 1897 but grew up moving between garston and woolton.
