A man called John Ramsay lived with a family in Wee Mc Donnell St He may have been related to the Mother and I think her maiden name was Mc Gladdery He died many years ago maybe 1960 s

Thats the correct family.Maymac Thank you. One daughter Mary Ramsey was married to a James McGladrigan.  Sounds right. So they were there until the 1960s. Some of the children of Thomas Ramsay and Ann Butler emigrated to Scotland and New York  Thanks again Amanda

 If she was still alive that would be wonderful . Im sure she qwould know everything there is to know about the family. Maybe if you do contact her could you send me a message. I would really appreciate that.  {What is her name, if you dont mind me asking. Just so I can make a note of it}
Many thanks

Not receiving,a card, from this lady is not good news as she is a great,letter writer and never fails,to keep in touch even once,a,year Will try to contact,her and with permission give,you her,name, I,may,be,wrong but I think a sister,of John Ramsay,lived.in Servia St,and people from this street are,on Belfast forum
