I am really enjoying your website . It is giving me a good insight to Portadown. Last year I discovered I had "family" there. The Dillon family lived at 94 Bridge St. (which apparently was Victoria House) from 1907-1919. James and Mary Dillon had 9 children (that I have found so far). They were: Edward, Prudence, Mary, David, Samuel, Bertha, Frederick, Harold and Lily. They all emigrated to USA between 1907 and 1919 except Lily and Samuel. Lily married George Reid and remained in the Portadown area where her descendants still live today. Her wedding photo is on the Cultural and Historical link on this website. Her family would have been living at Victoria House at the time. Samuel was a private in the Royal Irish Fusilliers and died on 7/01/1916. He is buried at Seagoe Cemetry and his name is on the WW1 War Memorial in Portadown.
Mary Dillon (nee McIlrath) was my great grandmother's sister. Eliza McIlrath married Adam Preston. My grandfather, James Preston emigrated to Australia in 1908. They were all from the Banbridge area but James and Mary must have relocated to Portadown about 1897.
Now I have your link I will be logging on to your website regularly to keep up to date with what is going on in Edenderry/Portadown and perhaps someone out there may be able to assist me further with my research.
Congratulations on the website and keep up the good work.
Judy
