Thanks Belfast beau and proofreader for this information.  This could be a place to start at the Ravenhill Presbyterian Church. 

This family could be part of my family - not sure - my grandmother and father are long gone and I am in Canada.. 

This family may not have even known my Maggie Dowds (grandmother) with the wooden leg. 

I'll keep plugging on...   thanks for  your help.

Hello,

My name is Carol Welsh and I was their neighbour as a child.  Eddie and Lily Dowds are buried in Roselawn cemetery and their eldest son Edward lives off the Lower Braniel Road on the corner of Wood (something) street/drive in a bungalow, behind the Braniel School.  I don't know where Billy is and Robert has passed away.  Robert was a member of the Albert Bridge Accordian Band once (big drummer).

I was born in Roslyn Street in 1968.

Some posts have referred to the Martin family. Not sure if its the same folk, but I remember (vaguely) playing in the street with David Martin, who would have been a similar age to myself. Think he had blonde hair (like myself) and moved away when I was about 4 or 5 years old (about 1972 or 1973).

Never saw him or heard of him again.
