Your grandfather's dob would be helpful - I can't find his birth in either the GRONI or Irishgenealogy  index

That's very interesting. Even though they were McFaddens, they still used the name McCaldridge.

Looks like he was born on 30 July 1905 at Ballycraigagh.

I always heard Gran talking about her brother Sandy!  Her second youngest son was Alex, called for him and we have a Sandra in the family also called after that line.

May I ask if Mary Ann and Nancy Jane were sisters, or related in some way, and did they both have children with the  William McCaldridge/Alexander?  I know that Nancy Jane's family were associated with Toberkeigh Presbyterian Church.

And can I ask the source of the two approx years of birth?  I have got no joy either in seeking Mary Ann - uncertain if Mary Jane was actually related.   By the way, is Mary Jane's daughter Jane the mother of a young soldier Malcolm McFadden commemorated for being lost without trace at the Somme?  If so there is a lovely UlsterScots poem by a Jordan Mogey on a dedicated facebook page.

Probably very little on Ancestry that will help find details of the family in Ireland.

'Malcam' McFadden (transcribed as age 11 but original looks like 17) 'servant' in Taggart household in 1911-
