Hello just by chance I came across this thread I believe the Robert John Cowden your enquiring about is my grandfather but I cant be sure if its same? he passed away august 1984 from malcolm street? His wife was Joan Margret Cowden passed away aug 2004

Hi Louise, your grandfather Robert & my wife's father Hamilton went to the Isle of Man together in around 1938 / 39.  They both met & married Manx ladies, Joan Parry in your Robert's case, Joan Corkill in our case, so ironically both ended up Joan Cowden. My wife & one of your parents would be cousins.

Two weeks ago my wife knew nothing of her Belfast family, we probably now have about 150~200 names in the tree but no relative contacts until now.
It would be great if your ok to send me a message with some contact details and hopefully we can start to build some bridges to reunite Katrina with her Belfast family. 

Thank you very much for your reply.   Colin
