    John Henry Martin married Annie Maria Bell in 1888 in Belfast.

    I tried looking for the family across Ireland in the 1901 census and did not find a good lead. Did they emigrate at some point?

    Thanks Roger.

    My great great grandmother Annie travel to Canada 1914 with my grandfather James.  They travelled from Liverpool on the empress of Ireland.  They where living in Winnipeg.  My grandfather enlisted in the CEF December 1914.  My great great grandmother returned to Ireland 1915.  I think she went to Belfast.  Has I have a few addresses for her in Belfast.  But afraid my great great grandfather did not travel with them.

    So I do not know where he went or if he stayed in Kilshane/Bansha.  He was a blacksmith by trade.  I have tried looking for death records.  But he seems to have disappeared.
