Surnames: Cleland's County Down/Belfast/Crossgar
I am looking for information on a William John Cleland (born circa 1860, possibly a little earlier and who would have married around 1880 to 1884 and definately had a son called David b. 1910 (who married a Martha McKeown). William John's wife may have been called Eliza (Eliza Jane) I know the majority of the clelands come from the Crossgar area but due to the lack of records and number of Williams and Davids it is proving hard to find (for definate!!) my GG Grandfather. . I cannot identify any records of birth for David cleand circa 1910 either. He ran a jaunting car in Belfast in the 1915 to 30's. Any information would be kindly recieved
