Hi CMcG, Can you please help? I need to find the obituary of Joseph Totten death 13 May 1980 last known residence 55 Broadway Parade, Belfast.

I am thinking he could be the husband of Frances Mcilveen (Nee) Greer. Joseph is living at the same address as her late Husband George Edward Mcilveen.

Are these three people connected through marriage? Given the time frame I am unable to confirm Frances and Joseph married!

Frances died on 10 Oct 2001 The Pine Rds 23 Upper Lisburn Road, Belfast.

Are there any obituaries for Joseph and Francis?

Hoping in anticipation that you can be of assistance.

Huge thanks as always.

Wheatfield Primary had the worst slope i ever played on and Springhill Primary was so small that if you had anyone with a decent kick on them they could literally score from a goal kick!!!!

I was a teenager in the 1960s and I thought that the Kennedys could do no wrong at that time and I am sure that I was not on my own in thinking that.
Sadly,history records that things were not as they seemed during those years.

His decision to involve the US in Vietnam, was surely one of the worst blunders in history?   ::)

It's been so long that the only people who KNOW the truth are dead.

History it seems is written by the winners.

The magic bullet that struck JFK more than once and the Governor

was found undamaged by a Secret Service operative Ruby and

Oswald were employees. It's been suggested LBJ knew more than we

will ever know. There was more than one shooter. They don't miss.

I would love to know, what J Edgar Hooter knew about it.  ;)

Despite an on the scene Doctor telling reporters that Kennedy had died from

a fatal gun shot to the head (he pointed to his forehead) it seems later the massive

exit wound had been hab been surgically altered to make it appear as

though JFK had been hit from a different direction. I recall there is a Y**Tube

video of Robert asking LBJ, his President, Where's his brain ?

Sad too, that history will never show the real truth about the Kennedy clan.  ::)
