    Notes 
    • Story is that he left his wife after the wedding on the basis that he was drunk when he had agreed to marry her. He married in 1906.

      He was a bit of a lad. He migrated from NIR (date unknown) to settle in Australia. He visited family in South Africa and died in the Cape during the big flu epidemic (the Black flu was in 1918 "so he was still quite young"). Occupation unknown. He is buried in Dido Valley Cemetery, Simonstown. We have found him in the 1901 Larne census so we can now say he died at age 43-44.
