DEAR BERNADETTE

I HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM VISITING MY RELATIVES IN COOKSTOWN. THEY INFORMED ME OF A GRAVE IN THE CEMETRY THAT BELONGS TO MY GRANDMOTHERS SIDE OF THE FAMILY. IT CONTAINED THE FOLLOWING

JAMES CORR BORN 1855 DIED AGE 70 3/8/1925
MARY CORR (NEE STAFFORD) DIED AGE 65 3/2/1921
SARAH CORR (DAUGHTER) DIED 9/1/1952
MARY CORR MY GRANDMOTHER WAS BORN IN BARROW APPROX 1896 HER PARENTS ABOVE LIVED THERE AS HER FATHER WORKED IN THE SHIPYARD.
MY GRANDMOTHERS 2ND DAUGHTER WAS ALSO BORN IN BARROW APPROX 1920 SHE IS STILL ALIVE.
SHE RETURNED THERE WITH HER HUSBAND BERNARD MCCANN WHO ALSO WORKED IN THE SHIPYARD, BEFORE RETURNING TO WORK FOR HARLAND AND WOLF.

THE FARM IS APPROX 2MILES FROM COALISLAND AT A PLACE CALLED SANDHOLES.

IT COULD BE SAID THAT JAMES MOVED TO BARROW FOR WORK. NAMES THAT KEEP CROPPING UP IN THE FAMILY ARE JAMES, MICHAEL, MARY, ROSE, SARAH DO THESE NAMES APPEAR IN YOURS.
TAKE CARE. JOHN.
P.S.
I LIVE 70 MILES FROM BARROW I COULD RESEARCH IT IF I KNEW WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.
CAN YOU SUPPLY ME WITH ANYTHING.
