Is it the same Samuel you asked about here?

There are newspaper reports on FindMyPast but I can only see snippets as I am not a subscriber.
It is discussed, however, on your thread.

There are other threads about the Rowney family. A contributor to one said that the family moved from Belfast to Scotland. Click on "Profile" to find your old threads.
Did you intend to post on the Lanarkshire board?
Btw, you seem to have hit CapsLock. A post which is all in capital letters is regarded as shouting. See "Help" section "How to use RootsChat".

I think you need to rearrange the wording of the subject as it's misleading & confusing?!...

Edited with strike through...please see Add at bottom of this post.

"samuel rowney b1899 belfast died in hotel in scotland??

It infers Samuel died in a hotel in Scotland...

"Samuel Rowney, aged 63, night watchman, whose body was found in a lift shaft at Asia House, Manchester"

Add, It looks as though you're researching 2 different people with same names.

Can you please tell us whether you have found a link to either/both with accuracy? as your other post stated "apparantly he was my granddads brother"
