I'm from Northern Ireland originally. My parents live in Omagh, but my dad was born in Coleraine in 1940 (John Andrew Eakin).
His father was James Eakin who was born near Bushmills in 1910 (d 1996). James had about 9 brothers and sisters quite a few of whom never married and most are now dead.
I wonder if there is any connection between our families.
