Hi agideo, are you related to the twin Finlays (rip) Did that other Gerard McCusker come from Ton St. Terence Benson is my cousin. We've only recently got in touch again after 40 years. He was in Belfast last December, to see if he could find any of his relatives, it's a long story, but at least we know now that he is alive and well. All the best O0

Hello again Bella
                   Great to hear Terrys alive and well he's been missing for a long time.I did hear he joined the police force in America but I dont if it was true.Anyway my sister is good friends with Terrys sister Anne.I wonder if he managed to find her when he was over. If not I'll speak to my sister and I'll PM you. I'm not related to the twin Finlays that I know of and I'm pretty sure the other Gerard McCusker was from Ton Street.

Hello agideo, sorry, i meant that Finlay question for Finlay2 who posts on the forum. Yes Terence managed to see all his sisters including Ann. Two of his sisters are just back from America they were over visiting him. He didn't join the police force , he was in the marines and served in vietnam. he has travelled about a bit and has finally settled in Witchata.We are hoping he will be back sometime next year for a few weeks. I keep in touch with him and his partner via email.The McCuskers from Servia St. Is that Patsy's son, i speak to young Patsy all the time as he lives with his father just round the corner from me.
