      Randalstown lies in the Parish of Drummaul.

       This is a list of Townlands in the Parish, might help in finding Ancestors.

Long story re burial, enough to say that a person with the same surname was planted in the wrong grave.  no need to go disturbing her.

Unfortunately not in the Randalstown memories etc.... in Griffiths Valuation though

Wonder how often a mix up like that happens. I had a great uncle who was a right miser and he spent a hell of a lot of his money on a fancy Crypt for himself on a expensive plot in Knockbreda.
   Turned out he died at sea and was buried there.

Absolutely ,   it all checks out. George and Dorothy nee owens moved to Newark n.j. to a cousin Sam Chambers who was the Presbyterian minster at milburn memorial church.  His family came from Clare township near warringstown.Supposed sailed on the s.s. celtic from liverpool 7/4/23.

 George and Dorothy lived at 168 west 31st Bayonne n.j. and died at Valley Stream n.y.

At the same time margaret jane ( nee brown ) Adams and her husband Robert also moved to Newark n.j.

Family had a house on Connell Hill during the war,and after relatives called Warwick lived and farmed there.
Couple of names of families I recall around the Junction were Turtles. and Sommers.

 I  think there were Millers living about the Branish rd.

 The Sommers were employed by the railway to look after the crossing on the Drumsough rd. Cant remember who handled the Randalstown line crossing at the Junction.
