Good day to all!

Fitzy:  You are right about Ella McShane living at 25 East Bread Street.  She was one of quite a few siblings.  I remember herself, Jean, Marion, Joe (my granda), Tommy and David.  I would have to check with my Mum but I don't think I have forgotten anyone.  My great uncle David lived in Canada.  My great auntie Jean married Louis Stinson (spelling?), great auntie Marion's married name was Rutherford.  My Auntie Ella lived at 25 all her life I believe.  I also remember Auntie Jean living with her as well for years.
Just wondering if you are related to the McShanes by blood or marriage?  We could be distantly related!

I stand corrected by my Mum.  They have a Tommy and an Alec in the family.  She also reminded me of her Auntie Lizzie.  Mum says she was one of the older McShanes from 25 East Bread Street.  Quite a houseful they had.  That makes 8 siblings in total!

Castlereagh, I lived in Elmdale Street, the Smiths lived I think 3 doors away from me.  I remember Margaret Smith, she was about 4 or 5 years older than me.  My most vivid memory of her was when she stood on her doorstep drinking Camp coffee.  We thought she was really sophisticated, we never had coffee back then, only tea.  I remember her brothers - Sammy who was much older, and George who didn't live with them but used to visit regularly.  George was disabled, I only ever saw him sitting in the sun in his wheelchair outside Mrs McChesney's house, with a blanket over his knees.  He couldn't speak very ell, he may have been spastic also, but I was very young and never really understood what it was.  What was your connection with the Smiths?

Hi Castlereagh, the name was Ruddock.  Your dad, Jim - I don't remember him but he may remember my brother and sister, Philip and Kathleen? My other sister and I would have been much younger than Jim.  Is Margaret still in Belfast?
