Hello,

It seems they had six children altogether. Elizabeth died on the 30th April 1900 at 60 Hatfield Street, Belfast and was buried in Belfast Cemetery.

Her children were: George, Francis, Sarah, Sarah, Robert and Frances. It was common for parents to name the next child after one which was stillborn or died in infancy - hence the two girls named Sarah.

I hope this helps!

That's an excellent find. I have this information but I have Frances twice instead of Frances and Francis.

Thanks, again.

From another forum-

I am still struggling to find the date of birth of my Great Grandfather, George Crawford Stephenson.
I know he was born in 1860 Belfast Co Antrim.

You've posted more details here-

Someone has posted details of Stephensons which would need to be verified but perhaps they can shed light on Crawford family-
