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 !

Initially the Wills did not appear to be your Thomas. But I will revisit that.
Did Ada every marry?

Excellent research Valerie.
There are other posts from Fiona on Topic: Are you just starting Family History research?
The first marriage produced 2 children, Ethel & Lillian. That threw me down the wrong road and became quite muddled with multiple Thomas Weirs.
I now see from your post that the Lillian that Fiona was referring to was actually Sarah Elizabeth (Lily) who was obviously called Lillian within the family circle.

I'm off again, this time trying to get information on Thomas 3rd Marriage to Mary Anne Moore which resulted in three children Jim, Joe and Ada.

I have checked but can't find any record of their marriage or birth of the children ?
