Weir/Allen/Huggard families of Athlone

Surnames: Weir Huggard Hosgood Johnston
Hi. I am trying desperately to find the descendants of Hannah Phibbs Weir (b1822) and George Allen (dc1894). They married in 1853 in Moylescar Mullingar.
Hannah is my gt gt gt aunt, sister to my gt gt grandfather William Ormsby Weir.
Although Hannah was born in Sligo and ended her days in Belmont Ave Dublin, during her married life she lived around the Creggan, Athlone Co Westmeath area. I think.
Hannah & George had 2 sons - George (1845-1911) & Robert (1847-?)
George married Jane Johnstone in 1876. They had 9 children: Leslie, Eleanor (Ellin) (1878-1974), Maria (May) (1880-?), Lily (1887-?), Laura Jane(1890-?), George William (1893-?), Arthur Robert (1896-?), Ethel Violet (1898-?) & Kathleen Edith (1901-?)
Eleanor married Stephen Huggard in 1904. They had 7 children:Kathleen Jane (1904-1908), John George (1907-2003), Stephen Leslie Allen Huggard B.E. (1908-1975), Enid May (1911-1992), Arthur William (1911-1991), James Austen (1914-1915) and Douglas Allen Huggard Capt R.A.M.C. (1916-2001)
John George married Elizabeth Syms (dc1999) and had poss 3 children.
Stephen Leslie married Veronica Gladys and had poss 1 child David Leslie (1947-2005)
Enid married Oscar W Hosgood in 1937 Dublin
Arthur William married Margaret Suter in 1940 England
Douglas married ? in 1946

Do you know anything of this family? Are there any present day connections that I could get in touch with?
Please get in touch.

Hi Jacqui
The present day Arthur and family still lives there in the Creggan area of Athlone, I know him. Just google the surname and Creggan and you'll get umpteen results.

Hi Tomás,
Thank you so much for getting in touch.
It would be great to get in touch with Arthur and his family. Present day connections with names from the past is simply wonderful.
Please, should be speaking to him, let him know that I am hoping to get in touch.
Kindest regards
