Belfast History and Memories / Re: Sandy Row
« Last post by 22dave11 on Yesterday at 11:56:29 PM »
Hi All,
David McIlveen here from Australia. I was over in Belfast Sandy Row area in March 2016 and I am back in May 2018.
I am looking for possible burial grounds for some of my Ancestors. I have checked the Belfast City controlled cemeteries but these people are not mentioned so I am wondering if there are any more around the Belfast area.
Samuel McIlveen died 1917 and wife Mary nee Dickson died 1913 both died at 11 Napier St Sandy Row
William McIlveen died 1894 Renwick St Sandy Row and his wife Isabella nee Baird died 1912 at Teutonic St Sandy Row
As well as any of their children. There are too many to list of course but I would like to find all possible burials for the Dickson's and Baird's if possible.
The above and their families all resided in the Sandy Row area after moving there from about 1850-60's from either Co. Down and Co. Armagh
If there is any living relatives of the above people on this Forum I would like contact.
I have located 3 living cousins to date.


Regards
David

Hi Scotland it's nice to se you, I hope all is well with you and the family :-*

Breda, I hope you manage to get the photo up. I hear miss Betty has left for Vancouver so I guess you'll be able to catch up with her. How are you doin, ? :-* 

Liz, we managed to get out in the garden today and tidy up a bit, a few of the potted plants were starting to look a bit bedraggled, I hope this nice weather lasts until Thanksgiving  :) wishfull thinking :-*
Ruby,  at least that wet stuff is keeping away for now so you can get your garden in shape.  I use to hate this part because it meant the summer was over  and the garden use to look bare when they were all gone.  but Zellers use to sell these huge pots of Moms and they could be planted and would come back again the following year.  god I hate the thought of summer being over and yet Autumn is my fav. month.  oh well.  Liz

This was a photo of a bear that visited my back yard a few weeks ago, I tried to copy and paste but it didn't work :spiteful:

I get so frustrated with this forum :spiteful:  I can post pics on FB with no effort but they don't have it set up for ease on this forum.
hope you get that photo up CG, would love to see that bear.  you know , maybe the reason I can't post photos on here is not me but the forum :D .  Liz
