Hi Nora: Nora I have just been speaking with a relitive of yours, over in Scotland, David McGowan is his Great Grandfather.
He asked me to pass on his email address and then you 2 can have a chat.
I am not sure of his name, but his Wifes name is georgina.
Hi Nora; This is My last chat for tonight, Davids, father was a Robert McGowan, Born about 1820 in Antrim, He Married an Elizabeth Kilpatrick, also born 1820, which matches the 1891 Census in scotland where she is 71yrs old.
I have found a 1911 Antrim census with a Robert McGowan, age 62. His Wife and some of his children are on it.
I will print it off and scan it , and email it to you tomorrow.
Goodnight. 00-18am zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Nora;; You hit the nail on the head, it is almost , 12-00,midnight. If they were in Scotland in 1891, then they would not be on any census for ireland.
If you new Davids siblings names, I could try and find them.
Hi Nora: Sit down and take a big deep breath. Now Relax.
I am sure the Marriage was in Ahoghill, but you see Ahoghill is a small Village in the Townland of Ballymena.
So that is where the Marriage would have been Registered.
They are Indexed as been Married between the months of Apr-Jun 1880. Which is right by your dates.
They were in Scotland for 1890 until there death.
How am I doing so far.
I am not sure were you got the Idea that I am from Belfast, I am from the Emerald Isle alright, but was born and bred in the Irish capital Which is Dublin""".
I would have no problem in helping you in any way I can, If you could give me a Name and date of who it is you are looking for, I will see what I can find.
