Yep, looks like it was this Sarah who had the wee one in 1901.  Lepper St is also in the Parish of St Patrickís

Thanks, Breadbasket - I've managed to dig up a fair bit on the Grahams and the maternal side of that family too (O'Neills and Owens), but nothing on James O'Hanlon, beyond that he was a soldier at the time of his marriage in 1902, from Armagh, father James O'Hanlon - found a few possible army records but all inconclusive!

Where do you do these birth and death cert searches? I didn't get a hit for Mary (Eliza's) death cert. in 1922... did John Henry survive the bomb, like Martha?

Although it does not mention John Henry by name I think it is fair to say that he very well may have been the 3rd member of the family who were playing in the street.
Eliza, Martha & possibly John Henry

Yes, I think I found his name once among the injured in a newspaper article, and corroborated in this historian's post on the bomb

(https://treasonfelony.wordpress.com/2016/02/04/the-weaver-street-bombing-and-not-dealing-with-the-past/)

but no sign of him beyond 1922 - Martha married, so she clearly recovered, but not sure about John Henry.

Hi there,
Martha O'Hanlon was my granny, she died in 1976. My mum was called Sarah (Sheila) after Sarah Graham.  I remember your grandfather very well, he lived round the corner from us.  We used to call him uncle Josie. He was deaf, I was told as result of an injury during the war, but now I am wondering if it was related to this bombing, we also had no idea of this.  I remember all the O'Hanlon sisters. Bridget, Sarah, Cassie and Aggie.  Sarah lived in her mums old house and Cassie lived next door. All the sisters and Josie were very close knit. I don't know much about Josies brothers. My mum would have kept in touch with Henry's family. The other was called jimmy, I just know he has family in North Belfast.  I did a bit of research into the tree but not much.  I will pm you my email address.

Hello!

I'll check the PM in a moment - great to be in touch.

My grandfather did lose his hearing and some of his sight in WW2 - I have the medical discharge card, so don't think he was injured in the 1922 bomb. I remember Aggie quite well - think she died when I was about four or five, but have vivid memories of visiting her house.

I've found a lot going a way back, mainly on the Graham side - I can't get further back on O'Hanlon's -- but all of it through research rather than family memories, as my grandfather died when I was little and my father only remembers bits and pieces.

I'll write to you on the PM tomorrow.

All best,

Karl
