Many thanks for this Eileen, I have actually seen the Covenant online before, family lore has Grandpa signing it in his own blood. And I had the good fortune to have a rather extended sort of penpal situation with Mr. Newell and have a copy of his book Tandragee Remembers which has photos that I contributed of my grandfather. I can wish that my great grandfather would stick to one first name as he tends to turn up here and there going by William on some occasions and Robert on other. I was wondering if there is a death certificate available on line as there is a family story that William/Robert abandoned the family and I know that my grandfather never spoke of his father to my dad and I was very young when he died.
Thanks again , LuAnn

I am the grandaughter of Isabella McCullough, your father's sister. I have a picture of your father in uniform in 1914 for the Royal Irish Fusiliers, 9th division. (WW1). MY grandmother married Edward Hall and they lived in Toronto Canada. Isabella was a homemaker and had 2 sons: Edward Hall (my father) and Ian Hall. My mother's name was Rita Wilson and Uncle Ians wife's name was Barbara. My grandmother told me Poyntz Pass, Ireland was named after her relative as he led a battle there. My grandmother was born in Tandragee Ireland and then migrated to Canada, I am not sure what year. She also told me that one of her sisters died in their house in Ireland trying to dry her dress over a fire meant for boiling water. My name is Delcie Hall Beam and I believe we are related.

David (my grandfather ) and Isabella(your grandmother) arrived in Canada in May of 1920 aboard the Caronia at Halifax, the passenger list indicates that they were headed to their married sister's home in Toronto. He married Helen Ross Smith of Aberdeen Scotland on Dec 12 1928 .He died March 12 1958 He and Helen had 3 children , David Ross(my father) James Bain, and Barbara. The passenger list indicates that David(sr) was an engineer and lists Isabella as a "cotton op" I am presuming that means operator. My dad also told me the story of the girls died by her dress(or nightgown) catching fire at the fireplace. My dad who is 84 recalls meeting your dad and uncle on one or two occasions when he was quite young. And also recalls meeting his aunt "Bella" hope this helps. Best LuAnn
