(Maria Davidson McKinley (Ria) is burried with Hessie and I'm unsure of the relation so if anyone is able to find a death notice for her as well that would be super helpful, thanks again. She passed on the 9/10th August 1980 and was Buried 12th August 1980, last place of residence 7 Jocelyn Avenue)

Thanks so so much,

  • Kellie,

    You mention Maria Davidson McKinley. However the burial records just record her name as Maria Davidson. I don’t think she was named McKinley.

    Belfast Telegraph of 11th Aug 1980 has a death notice: “Davidson Maria - August 9 1980, at hospital, late of 7 Jocelyn Ave, dearly beloved friend of John & Hessie. Funeral Service in Wilton’s Funeral Home. Woodstock Rd tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10.15 am. Interment afterwards in Roselawn Cemetery. Very deeply regretted by her sorrowing friends. John & Hessie McKinley 13 Braeside Grove, Braniel. At home with the Lord.”

    You could order a copy of Maria’s death certificate from GRONI to find out a little more about her. (Likely cost £15 sterling). And she may have left a will which should be in PRONI (when it re-opens). That’s free to view if you can go in person.

    Can’t see a notice for Hessie’s death.
