Hi Helena,

Thanks so much for the updated information on the grave and headstone.

I'll keep looking for possible burial.

Once again I appreciate your help.

Hi Ray,

Cant help you with where your Uncle is buried but he is not buried with his parents.  I was at Roselawn today and took a photo of their grave, the headstone is unstable and thats why there is a warning notice and tape around it. 

 I added memorials and the grave photo for them on Findagrave  https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/190816079/george-courtney-stephenson

Regards Helena

Me mum and her family (the McGreeveys) moved to Australia from Belfast in 1967 and I have been trying to find some family history but coming to dead ends here in Perth , Western Australia. Me Grandad (John Smylie McGreevey - aka Jackie) died in 2008 and me Granny (Ellen Harland Houston - aka Ella) has Dementia so I am unable to get their help with my enquires and as me mum (Elizabeth) was under 12 when she left Belfast much of what she knows is faded memories so I thought I would join a group like where people maybe help answer some of my questions about Belfast and surrounds.


I am currently researching me Granny's side of the family in hopes to discover some old family member photos or memories I can share with her to remember the old days back home, as she keeps talking about the green hills and that so thought this may comfort her a bit. My first question is in regards to my Great Grandfather [/color][/font]Samuel Houston[/color][/font] who married [/color][/font]Annie Hill[/color][/font] he died in January [/color][/font]1953 [/color][/font]and the burial records show his last known address as: [/color][/font]"Harland" Upper Ballyisillian. [/color][/font]Does anyone know what the "Harland" part of that address is? [/color][/font]


I have obviously Googled it to no prevail. I know Upper Ballyisillian is in the county Shankill and I know Harland is a family name that has been handed down thru generations and I obviously know of shipbuilders Harland and Wolfe but can not find the link of the name Harland in this address. I query this as I have recently found 2 addresses that keep popping up in my research where actually a Union Workhouse & Infirmary and the other place was listed as "The Abbey" which sounded very posh til i found out it was for TB sufferers so not sure if this this the same sort of deal as I cant find any info on the "Harland"


Any help will be appreciated
