That would be so nice. I never expected that.

 

I really appreciate. Take your time.

Sorry for my English. I'm a french Canadian.

The two graves I am looking for is :

Henry Harrison at age of 47 - Truggan Jan 11 1905 of Port Erin - Rushen. I supposed he is the one that died in a boat accident with the Wild Rose in dec 1904

Elizabeth Harrison (Kelly) - The Truggan July 3 1916 at age of 55 of Port Erin -  - Rushen.

Elizabeth was the widowed wife of Henry.

Let me know if you need more.

Thank you very much.

I just saw an article regarding this. They say that Henry is buried in the Rushen Churchyard it it can help.

It's much easier than that! ;D

I visit the Library at the Manx Museum.
There I can look up the Burial Registers and the Monumental Inscriptions books.
Each entry in the MI books contains a grave reference - and most of the books have a map of the churchyard ;)

Harrison burials, with an address of Truggan:
Alice Catherine, age 26, 26 April 1920
Elizabeth, 55, 3 July 1916
Henry, 47, 11 January 1905
Tom Hudson, 2 months, 3 April 1899

OK! The Manx Museum Library was open today (closed Sunday, Monday & Tuesday), so I managed to get something.

Kirk Rushen has 4 graveyards: the Old Yard, 1869 Yard, 1899 Yard and 1926 Yard.

Your people are buried in the 1869 Yard (West of the Vicarage Wall), grave reference E2.
The Monumental Inscription says:
In Affectionate Rembrance
of
Ann (Taubmann)
Wife of Henry Harrison of Port Erin
Who Died November 2ns 1874
Aged 50 Years
Also of the above named
Henry Harrison
Who died May 15th 1875
Aged 52 years
Also Samuel
Son of the above
Who died October 13th 1884
Aged 24 years
Also Henry
Son of the above who died January 9th 1905
Aged 47 years
Also Elizabeth, wife of the above
Henry Harrison
Who died June 30th 1916 aged 55 years
Also Catherine Alice
Daughter of the above
Born April 11th 1894
Died April 23rd 1920
Rest In Peace

Weather permitting, I will go to Port Erin tomorrow or Friday and take a photo (or 2!)

Very good news.

Thank you very much for your help.

I will wait impatiently.

In meantime I got some good results on my side. I found a cousin, which my friend didn't know she had. He is the only one still alive and they are now in relation by email because he live far from where we are.

They are both very happy and they are trying to answer some questions on their families.

I have another question for the experts.

What is the best way to find some old address (directories) at Isle of Man ?

In the information I found it is mentionned 'Truggan' as the address. I only found a road called 'Truggan' but doesn't seem to have a lot of houses on that street. Could 'Truggan' be another place ?

Google will point you to Truggan Road (Port St Mary) and Truggan Close (Port Erin).

I will ask around - maybe the Port Erin Library will know?

From another website:
Truggan Close is next to Port Erin Railway Station and is located in Isle of Man. Truggan Close has a length of 0.1 kilometres. But it is split in separate ways
