The barber's name was Isaac Henderson - one of a huge tribe of Henderson's that inhabited Ligoniel and were members of the Methodist Church.
G'day Roger, How far can you go back Re: Ligoniel? I knew the Henderson family. I also attended Ligoniel Methodist Church. Billy Henderson's (the window cleaner) son Andy, and my brother were great friends. Also I lived next door to Robbie Henderson.
Mick.

G'day Jacqui. I note you gave your Great grandmother's address as 186 Ligoniel Rd.  My grandmother lived at 184 Ligoniel rd. She was there from before the war until well into the 60s. To my memory, A man called Bobby Toad lived at 186,  and a family called, Darra lived at 182.  (I was born in 184.) I don't remember anyone called smith on that side of Ligoniel Rd. Do you still live in Belfast?
Mick.

Hi Mick,

Thank you for your message,

Did you mean Bobby Todd? If so that was Susannah's son, they were also known as Todds, but we still havent worked out were the Todd name as came from as Susannah was Born Smyth and married a Smith. Her children were William, James, Robert, Thomas and Mary Jane.[/size]

G'day, Jacqui,  Sorry for the misspelling  of the name Todd. I have been on the phone with my older brother. He is some years older than me. His memory is clearer than mine. He remembers Mrs, Smith, Tommy and Bobby  Todd. He also remembers May (?Mary Jane) who married Jim McMurray.  Most of the McMurray family ended up here in Australia. (It's a small world) Thank you for responding, I enjoyed our little chat.
Mick.

Hi Mick,

Yes Tommy was my Grandfather he is buried in Umgal Cemetery, We are all still confused as to were the Todd surname came from. as they were all born Smith.

It would be nice to hear if you or your brother had any memories of them, Im still currently trying to find out were Susannah and William are buried!

Nice speaking with you

Jacqui

Hello Mick a Lean. Mary Jane (better known as May) was my Granny and she actually married Rabbie McMurray. Jim Mc Murray was my Da and I'm one of the McMurrays who moved to Australia. Jacqui Smith is my second cousin and we've both been busy trying to sort out the Smith/Todd mystery. Where abouts in Oz are you?

By the way how are you Jacqui? Still on the trail I gather. Haven't been on Bacefook lately... got a bit bored with it all. Drawing too many dead ends regarding the family tree stuff.

Hi, my Grandparents WILLIAM & ELIZABETH TODD lived at 11 Lavens Drive. I really don't know anything about him but she was a GRAHAM from somewhere in the Shankill. I remember hearing that he was from Ballyclare but then later heard Ligoniel.
Who,what, where,when and why,I think that says it all.

For reasons far beyond my comprehension I found myself browsing this forum last night and it looks like I have stumbled across a family mystery which I knew nothing about.

My grandfather whom I was named after, was Bobby Todd and my grandmother was Frances Todd better known as Lalla and they also lived in Lavens drive so it looks like I am related to Udini and Jacquismith87. Maybe 2nd cousins.

At this stage I have no answers to the Smith/Todd mystery but I know my sister has done extensive research with the family tree and managed to go back quite a few generations.

I am currently back in N.I. visiting family and will take the opportunity to speak to my uncle Jack and aunt Roberta (Bobby's son and daughter) to see if they can shed some light on the subject. Unfortunately my father Howard passed away last year and this sort of thing would have been right up his street.

Jacquismith87 please feel free to pm me, I will put you in touch with my sister who has all the info on the family tree
