Back in Northern Ireland 2 of my grandparents were deaf and actually met at Kinghams Mission, the deaf school they both attemded. They eventually married.

My grandparent's
Robert Donely born 1900
Sarah Blair born 1905
Marriage certificate list's the school's Rev. as the witness, available if anyone want's it.

Below you will find the information requested for not only
my ancestor's deaf school but also the website of all the schools they have in their database. IRISHDEAF.COM

Goodluck, Alexandrea Lockhart
