Fenc, it would be best if you edit your post to remove your email address, as it is not allowed to post such on the forum (for your privacy and to avoid you potentially being spammed).

If you then reply to my post, you should have reached the minimum needed to then use the Private Message system (click on the small circle with a written page, that appears below Triplog's username), and can share your email address with Triplog via that.

Hope this helps.

For your information Bellshill West Church is probably about a mile away from 607 Main Street at the opposite end of the Main Street.

The weird coincidence is that the last job my grandfather (a carpenter) worked on was the re-roofing of West church Ballymena in 1926 (after a fire), he died just after this (from consumption as far as I'm aware).
Thanks Andrew C.

My husbands great grandfather was William Francey married to Agnes Ayre from County Antrim. My father in laws name was Joseph Logan Ayre Francey - his father was also Joseph Logan Ayre Francey - his father was William Francey. My father in law married Joan Scott Bryson and they moved to Australia - which is where we live. Would love to compare notes - have some road blocks that can't seem to shift

You possibly already know that Joseph Logan Ayre Francey was born in 1894 at Islandmagee, near Larne. His birth was registered as Francis rather than Francey:

Assuming this was your father in law https://trove.nla.gov.au/work/9456956?selectedversion=NBD1638695, you may be intetrested to know that  whilst at senior school, he achieved a school Science prize in 1945, as listed in the local paper at the time. In his wedding notice of 1950 in the local paper, he is listed as B.Sc., so had obviously gone on to complete a university degree by then.
