7 Upton Street Belfast
« on: June 25, 2019, 01:16:07 PM »
My Fathers family lived at 7 Upton street around 1918 and it seems that the street has now gone.
My grandfathers name was Thomas Graham and my grand mother Mary Graham.  My fathers name was Thomas Graham he was born 1915. He had a brother Leonard and 2 sisters Mary and Catherine. Any information on the street and the family would be great
I know what I know and I know what I dont know
