There is no father listed on the birth record. The father possibly could have been one of the boys working at the shipyard. Lizzie lived with the family and worked as a Printer in 1911 at age 20. Lizzy and her then boyfriend, John Henry Bradley, were witnesses to her sister, Isabella and George Cree Jamison's wedding on 11 August 1914 in Belfast. Lizzie was a witness to her brother, Robert and Johanna Dalton's wedding on 26 January 1915 in Larne, Ireland. Lizzie and John Henry Bradley married on 14 July 1915 in Belfast. John was Roman Catholic, born in 1888 in County Tyrone, and was a Labourer. Lizzie's sister, Sally, was a witness to their wedding. John's parents were Henry Bradley and Mary Lynes, who were married in Armagh. Henry and Mary had two other children, Patrick, born in 1890 and Annie, born in 1892. Lizzie lived with the family until at least 1916 when she was 25 and married and had her first child with John.  At this point, John had become an Undertaker. Margaret Primrose Bradley was born on 19 April 1916. Lizzie and John lived at 7 Fife Street, Belfast with Lizzie's mother Margaret. John Henry "Harry" Bradley Jr. was born 26 November 1919. Lizzie and John lived at 62 Carnan Street, Belfast. Lizzie had two miscarriages before having her last child, Hugh Hutchinson Bradley, born in Belfast. John and Lizzie lived at 20 Alexandra Park Ave, Belfast in 1945 when their son Hugh was killed in Bicester, Oxford, England during World War II. Lizzie visited Niles, OH for 6 months in 1946 and again in 1948 or 49. There is a picture of a family reunion with 33 members of the family including Lizzie in it from the latter visit. Lizzie and John lived in Belfast in 1964 at 7 Downview Gardens Donegal Park Avenue. John died around 1968. Lizzie had senile dimentia in later life and had to be put in a nursing care home. Her grand-daughter and great-grand-daughter lived within walking distance and visited often.  Lizzie loved sweets and her great-grand-daughter would often indulge Lizzie by sharing her treats with her. Lizzie would smack her great grand-daughter in the bum with her walking stick if she didn't share! Her great grand-daughter went to visit by herself the day Lizzie died and was the first to find out about Lizzie's death. She ran home crying the whole way. Lizzie died on 24 July 1983. She was 92 and lived in a home in Collinbridge, Glengormley. She donated her body to science. Picture was taken in 1913.
