O'Hanlon/Grahams
« on: July 15, 2020, 08:36:46 PM »
Hello all,

I've just started researching my father's side of the family. His grandfather was James O'Hanlon, b. c 1879 in Armagh, married a Sarah Graham in St Patrick's Belfast on 28 August 1902.

Their children I know of were: James (1903), John Henry (1905 - think he went by Henry), Martha (1907), Eliza (1909 - I think she may have been killed in the Weaver St bomb in 1922), Joseph (1912 - my grandfather), Sarah (1914), Kathleen (1917), Bridget (1919), and Cassie and Agnes (no dates for them).

Any info on James or Sarah's family? Or on this family in general? I know that they lived in Carrick Hill and then the New Lodge at various stages. I know very little about that side of the family, having only met my great-aunt Agnes - my grandfather died when I was quite young.

All the best!

Weaver Street Bombing 1922

The explosion killed or injured

Mary Johnson (13), Catherine Kennedy (14), W.J. Dempsey (13), Annie Pimley (16), John O’Hanlon (16), Elizabeth O’Hanlon (11), Murtie O’Hanlon (16), Barney Kennedy (10),
John McCluskey (12), Rose Ann McNeill (13), Mary McClinton (18), Mary Kerr (6), Susanne Lavery (14), George O’Connor (16), Joseph Conway (12), Patrick Maguire (14),
Kate O’Neill (14), Robert McBirney (16) and William Connolly (13).

All lived in Weaver Street. Adults standing in their doorways were also badly injured.

The force of the blast threw the children up into the air and caused catastrophic injuries, maiming many of those who survived.
Mary Johnson and Catherine Kennedy died immediately.
Eliza O’Hanlon died the next day.

Ah ok, so it's not a direct relation to the extent you would know family history - it's through the Pedlows?

I have most of the siblings marriages up to a point, but still trying to piece a lot of other things together including Bridget's father James's d.o.b and family in Armagh - he is a soldier in his wedding cert. in 1902.

so the 1911 census list 5 children born 3 living , Martha and  one other died, I cannot find a birth for Cassie or Agnes !

Do you know if Agnes or Cassie were born and died before 1911 ?

I think Cassie might have been a family name for Kathleen.

Aggie, the only gt-aunt I knew, was born in 1922.

P.S. Martha survived - notice the article says 'killed and injured'. Eliza definitely died, not sure about (John) Henry.

Thanks, Breadbasket.

I think that was Mary Elizabeth O'Hanlon (sometimes Eliza), who went by Eliza. She was my grandfather's sister (Joseph, b. 1912) - he died in 1988. We didn't know anything about this until I started researching it earlier this year during lockdown. Very sad.

I’m a little stumped at the moment, just had a quick look at the 1911 Census.... shows a child, Ellen aged 10, which makes her birth 1901ish.  James & Sarah married 1902.... will have a scout for the birth 🤫

Ellen was the eldest, born out of wedlock - not clear if James O'Hanlon was the father or not. 1901 is the right d/o/b for Ellen.

Mary is Eliza - she was baptised Mary Eliza according to Roots Ireland baptismal records - will hunt out if needs be.
