Christopher Roche Nov 5, 2014
  Hi in hope my grandfather was John Patrick Roche he left Drogheda in 1894 for Scotland we know about him after that as he joined the Royal Scots: We think that his father was Michael Joseph, he could have been in an orphanage or work house as his parents died and he was brought up for a time by aunts, he was not a happy child. It is posible his father had a brother who had a son Christopher who died in 1930`s? at least in 1939 his daughter Patricia remembered a policeman standing at the house door with a letter for her father, he said to the policeman " I never want to hear from that family again " he destroyed the letter without further comment. We think JPR was born 1874 1878. Any help would be welcome, very welcome.

  Trying to trace ONLY my "mothers".Difficult due to not having their maiden-names. Got as far as Martha Blair 7-16-1836 who traveled to the US alone on the "North Britainia" arr. 11-29-1858. I think she married passenger Charles Carlton, but can't find marriage or death record to substantiate. Anyone who can help me?

  we have been trying to find our relatives in Ballymena. My grandmother, Margaret Jane Moore was born 18Apr1879. We think she was born or raised or lived in Ballymena but we really don't know. When she died we found references to Ballymena. She claimed to have been a "bastard" child and that she went to work in a factory when she was 7 years old as a seamstress. (magadene laundries??) Her death certificate lists her mother's first name as Mary, no father's name listed. She immigrated to America in 1904 or 06, from Belfast. In her photos was a photo of a young woman, named Etta, taken circa 1920, by Young photographers, Ballymena. There is a photo with the inscription, "To Aunt Maggie." We are in need of any shred of evidence this person's existence in Ireland. Also would welcome any help to locate information
