As usual there is always a sad story,
Baby Julia died 10 minutes after birth.

How sad, I guess a lot of children didn't survive childbirth and it seems that there was no medical attendant.

It's difficult trying to get accurate history from elderly relatives. Ethel and Lilly were mentioned to my husband by his elderly aunt Ada who is still living in Ireland but she may be getting confused and at 92 is to be forgiven. Thanks again for your wonderful help.

92, a great age and hope she keeps going.

Adaís Mother, (what was her Christian name) this was obviously the 3rd marriage
Does she remember her Motherís Maiden name.
Do any of the surnames below ring any bells

Unfortunately I will not be able to research the 3 children for births as there is a 100 year rule which means that they can only be searched in person at the GRONI offices in Belfast.
However if you contact them they will carry out a search for a fee.

Ada was a nurse, no children
Joe was involved with transport import/export we think
Jim was an accountant and moved to Scotland

John Street Lurgan we think is where they lived ?

In your first post you mention Wills, would any of these link to my Thomas Weir .

You have been so helpful, sorry to ask for more !
