Hi and thanks for your help. I am positive that William John and Alexander are my family. I did not know about Kate, Mary and Emily ... they obviously predeaced another sister Theresa. Theresa has the same birth date as Maria and I'm not sure if she is a twin or if she was named Maria Theresa. I did find out that Alexander Hassard who was married to Emily Perry was often called Sandy and Emily Perry's last name was sometimes transcribed or read differently -i.e, Berry
Any other info you can give me would be helpful.
William John is buried in Bellanaleck - Cleenish Cemetery as one of the family members of Drumrainey, (Drumrainey I found on a map) but I can not find DRUMCONDRA on the map - can you help with that? I have also been to William and Elizabeth's (my grandparents) home in Bawnboy, Co. Cavan in 1968 and 1991 as that is where my Dad was brought up. It is the gate house to the former Johnson/Johnston Estate there.
This also poses another question .... are obituaries from local newspapers available?
