Connor
« on: Wednesday 15 May 19 16:30 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone.

I am currently tracing the Connor family in Northern Ireland.
William Connor 1831-1903 Ballinderry
Marriage 1848?
Ellen McCormick 1825-1903

Children Ballinderry

George 1850-1929
Henry 1863-1935
Margaret (Mary) 1864
Francis

Anyone with any information regarding the family or a forum would be a great help.

Look forward to your input.

Ray

Which Ballinderry? There is one in Antrim and two in Londonderry/Derry.

Or do you mean the RC Parish of Ballinderry which straddles Derry and Tyrone?
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Is this your William Connor in Tullyballydonnell townland (Ballinderry D.E.D.)? if so, wife Dinah? (appears to be mixed marriage)

William Connor was a widower and daughter Maggie the informant-

There's a civil marriage 1848 Lurgan district for a William Connor to Helena ?  (possible match Helena McCormack). Being a mixed marriage a non-Catholic ceremony quite possible. GRONI gives date as 15 May 1848 Craigavon registration district.

Hi guys, sorry for the delay, I was called away from the computer and when I got back on it was very late.

The help is amazing and I truly appreciate it.

The marriage between Helena and William is the correct one. Looked on pay per view, the area is Tullyballydonnel.
Now what I am looking for, for these people are possible burial sites. Headstones etc. Any clues?
