Becky - VERY excited! Your Jackson Currie was my great grandfather's brother, so his son Robert was my gran's first cousin!!!

His marriage record in Armagh in 1878 shows his father was called Robert Currie, labourer, and that he was aged 24, so birth circa 1854. He was resident in Glasgow, so I did a death search for him and found he died 25 NOV 1891 in Dennistoun, Glasgow. Parents listed as Robert CURRIE and Eliza HENDERSON - my great great grandparents!

So far I knew Robert and Eliza had married 1853 in Maghera, Co. Londonderry, but first confirmed child I had found to them was a Robert Curry b. 1864 (died in infancy). Three years later they had another Robert, my great grandfather. Jackson's being born means he was their eldest son, which makes the naming pattern perfect - eldest son named after the father's father.

Thank you so much for the emails, and to Lizzie. I have a whole new line to pursue now, right on my doorstep!

Chris

That's great news, Chris - I'm glad I posted my lookup request and that you saw it!

Norman is part of Kenora now so how cool that you have a connection to my little hometown in Ontario!

Best of luck with the research!

Thanks Becky,

I've made all sorts of progress in the last couple of days on this line, found a few more rellies in Ontario and more! The irony is I am going to be speaking in Ontario in September at the BIFHSGO conference in Ottawa, but it looks like Kenora is a seriously long way away - will have to schedule a visit to the area on another occasion! lol The discovery of this helps to fill in a 'black hole' in my line before civil registration for births started in Ireland in 1864, and I suspect there are at least another one or two kids to Jackson still to be found - but the hunt goes on!

Thanks again!

Chris
