 Ella,

I have read your post a couple of times but canít follow it. It reminds me slightly of one of those puzzles you used to get in Christmas crackers, which said something like: ďMy brotherís uncle is my fatherís son. What relation am I?Ē

You have said: ďI canít find the son of the great great great grandfather who is also AndrewĒ. So you are looking for an Andrew Hanna. But I have no clear idea of when he was born or may have died. And what information are you looking for? Who was he married to, what was his occupation or townland? Anything you can do to make this a bit clearer would be most helpful.

I  assume Andrew Hanna born in 1801 had a son Andrew about 1823. He had three sons john born 1844 Matthew born 1851 and Andrew born 1853.   In the census john and Andrew lived in crossgar. John was a railway station master Andrew a farmer. John is buried in annahilt church yard  Matthew was a blacksmith.  I know everything from Matthew down,but Andrew in 1801 ,his wife is Agnes but donít know her surname. I know , itís very confusing for me to get this far.

When I went to Belfast telegraph to find out where john and Andrew were buried ,they said if Andrew died over a weekend it wouldnít be in the paper.  (In those days)

Just out of interest, could this be a relative ?
From the LARNE TIMES, Saturday 31st December 1910.
HANNA.
Wanted to know if Samuel James Hanna, who went to America on the February 28, 1906,
he returned to Liverpool on May 26th 1907. No word of him has since been heard.
His mother and Father are anxious to know his whereabouts.
He belonged to Crossgar, Co.Down.

Reading the article again , it may not be your "Hanna's", they mention, Dromara, so they could be referring to "Upper Crossgar" which is a townland near Dromara.

     Crossgar was part of the Belfast & County Down rail system which closed around 1950 and which was absorbed into the UTA (Ulster Transport Authority). There are some UTA records in PRONI.
 
UTA/11/K/2 are staff records covering 1869-1903 and UTA/11/K/3 cover 1899 Ė 1911/ Might be worth looking at those.
