In Reply to: George McCurday - b. 1888 County Antrim, Ireland by Erika Clemens of 1920

Dear Erika - we have the following detail in our records for George's marriage to Alice Price and the birth details of some of their children :

George       1882       29 Nov       bachelor full age of Balinlea, carpenter son of John McCurdy, tailor       to Alce Price spinster full age of Derrykeighan daughter of Robert C Price, farmer       in presence of Wm McGratty, Wm Bighy Derrykeighan, Wm Matchette       Ballymoney 1 167       

CHildren birth records

Alice Price       23 Dec       1885       Coleraine       f       Coleraine       George       McCurdy       carpenter       Brodlee St       Alice       Price       Mary Jane McCann
Margaret       30 Mar       1893       Ballycastle       f       Croagh       George       McCurdy       carpenter       Craigalappin       Alice       Price       -
Isabella Jane       1 Apl       1895       Ballycastle       f       Croagh       George       McCurdy       carpenter       Craigalappin       Alice       Price       -

Do you konw June Grey ... as she too is descended from George and Alice' son George, who married Jane McKeeman.

I have some information and genealogical detaiol on the Price family of Ballintoy also, Robert Charles Price, father of Alice above has an extensive connection in the north Antrim area, and many of the families related to and intermarried with the McCurdy are similarly related to and intermarried with the Prices, including the McKeemans!. Are you interested in their details also?

Hope that this is of interest, and that we can exchange further details! DO have details of your own fmaily descending from George in America?

There is agravestone in Ballintoy churchyear to John McCurdy, George senior's father, who lived at Magheranhar - he died in 1895 and his wife mary died in 1902!

My father believes that this family are part of teh Craigalapping McCurdys ... and thus part of the Cairn McCurdys, and while I suspect that this is probable correct, we have not yet been able to prove the precise relationships!

Kind regards

Shane
