Hello, I have spent the whole evening looking at your website, it is so lovely. I began to look for any family link and became engrossed.
My maternal grandmother was born in Edenderry, ELIZABETH SCOTT 14 JULY 1880, DAUGHTER OF FRANCIS AND SARAH NEE SMITH, SISTER OF CHARLOTTE. ELIZABETH MARRIED PARK RAMSEY IN 1907. My mother Sarah (Sadie) was 1 of their chldren. I noticed some of your lovely old photos, there was a Sally Ramsey in a methodist choir in 1955 and also a Mr G Ramsey in a bible class in 1919, I just wondered if there were any links? Or if anyone new anyrhing about the Scott family. My mothers brother Frank Ramsey, married and Agnes Lyttle, not certain of the spelling, but I also noticed the name Lyttle on your site. Can anyone help?

Thank you
Olwyn Hart

Yes I believe the story goes that after delivering the days coal it was normal for him to go and have some refreshment and it was left to the horse to bring them both back to the coal yard at the bottom of Foundry Street. I am still speaking to my family and you are right it has just come to light.

WE LIVED AT NUMBER 25 AND THE GENTLEMAN NEXT DOOR WAS CALLED JOE. HE HAD A BAD ARM WHICH I BELIEVE WAS AS A RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT WITH A HORSE IN HIS YOUTH. I AM SORRY WITH REGUARDS TO NEDS HORSE NAME BUT I WILL ENDEVOUR TO FIND OUT FOR YOU AND SAVE YOUR AUNTS SANITY.

Two years ago I posted a message on this guestbook re information on the Dillon family of 94 Bridge Street Portadown. About 4 months later Jim Lyttle had contact with a lady in the US who was also enquiring about this family. He forwarded emails to me in Australia and Jane in the US who was a great granddaughter of James and Mary Dillon. Jane and I have kept in contact and she arranged a 3 way conference call between her Aunt Mary, herself and me. I would like to express my thanks to Jim for being astute enough to match the information and put Jane and I in contact with each other. The information and photos I have obtained in the last 2 years are fantastic. I would also like to let others know the power of this website and how just one request can open many doors. Keep up the good work.
Judy
