Thereís too many Williams and itís causing a mix up.

What Iím looking for is the following:-

William Bestal and Anne Cullen (BMDís) and any siblings

William (Valentine) b1862 - any siblings

John Corcoran married to Rose Caroll parents of Margaret Corcoran  (any details) and further children.
On Wm Bestal and Mgt Corcoran marriage cert, there is a witness called Brigida Corcoran which could be Margaretís sister, aunt, niece or cousin.

Dathai has solved the mystery of Edward Bestal by finding his death certificate so I now have complete details of William and Margaretís children who all passed away in Scotland with the exception being Edward

If I can get any details of William and Anne and any siblings of William (their son) I may be able to solve everything

Thank you, I need to find the link if any, I suppose thereís a slight possibility that wm law who died in 1967 may be the William who was married to Anne Cullen but that would have meant he would have been 62 when William was born.

I think itís more likely they were cousins/uncles etc

It was pointed out to me before of the possible connection but no details of the connection came forward

Sometimes one has to go all over the place to try to find someone........

They were in Tyrone too!


 Charlotte Elizabeth Bestall around 1905.  She was born 16 Aug 1880 in Creeduff, Castleberg.  Her parents are Audley William J Bestall born about 1848 in Creeduff, Castlederg.....

Now thatís an idea perhaps William Bestal and Anne Cullen may have lived in Tyrone before moving to Ireland so Iíll look there.

Iíll take a wee break just now as my head is thumping

William Law who died in 1867 was married to Catherine.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

William and Anne didnít come to Scotland, it was their son William and his wife Margaret Corcoran who came to Scotland. He came for work and better pay but sadly it didnít work out as he died within a year or just over a year of arriving and my great gran was left with a lot of children to bring up on her own.

If William could be found in 1901 it might say where he was born, hopefully not just Ireland, which would prove if he was born in Wicklow or was just living there when he married Margaret.
If not born in Wicklow than William and Anne Cullen wouldn't be his parents if yes than there doesn't appear to be anyone else who could be.
