Hi, Would love to here from anyone with information on the Willix family , I have them in Henrietta St. in 1901 . nothing before that. They are my fathers mothers family. Also McKissick I have them in Dromara around the mid 1800's , I know that is pretty good going get back that far, thats my dads fathers side . My mother was also a McKissick I have managed to find the connection , their greatgrand fathers were brothers. Mum is from Sandy Row, Glenalpen Street. Her father John was a Hackler, to do with combing the flax, his father John was a carter.

A connection with 11th November:
Can you connect John McKissock, killed in action 1st World War - possibly the only John McKissick listed as killed in action - as Pte 23024, 1st Battalion Cameronians(Scottish Rifles) died 29/10/1916 from Govan, Glasgow (which my son advises is where Harland and Wolff had a yard) with James M McKissick Argyll & Southern Highlanders Pte S 17305?  Are you aware of any connection with your family?
If so, please let me know.

Hi,
     I have a George McKissack married to Mary Jane Clarke 14 Sept. 1897 in my family tree I presume it was his brother James McKissick who was named as  his best man. As on a lot of old records the spelling is sometimes interpretated as McKissack they also had some connection in scotland and he was an engineer in the shipyards.

I have a few James but never came across a George .My mum has said her father John talked a lot about Scotland and loved the music. The only one who worked in the shipyard was her brother William and on Dads side his brother Tom. I could be wronge but I believe there is a part of Scotland near Fort William where there are a lot of McKIssicks.

My g.grandmother on my Dad's side was Sarah McKissick, dau. of John, the carter and sister of John, the hackler.  I have only gone back as far as John Sr. Parents, Thomas, but I have quite a bit on his descendants.  I believe your mother is my 1st cousin 2x rem.  Dad's family were all from Sandy Row, and he was an avid Linfield supporter.
