Hi,

Great forum, very interesting. I'm tracing my grandfather's family and have discovered that Patrick and Mary Morgan, Church Lane are my great great grandparents.

My Grandfather was James Smith, his father Arthur Smith married Annie Morgan (in 1907) and she was a daughter of Patrick & Mary Morgan of church lane.

James and his brother William Joseph Smith were born in Warrenpoint 1909 & 1912. After WWI Annie & Arthur Smith moved to Kent, England, possibly at the same time as Mary Morgan who remarried after the war.

I've tried to contact user Khan (Pauline) but I'm not sure if she is still around ? does anybody else have any articles, photos relating to the Morgan family. I've identified all of Annie Morgan's brothers and sisters, William, James,John,Patrick, Francis, Elizabeth,Mary(Maria), Catherine but am still missing some birth dates etc.

There is a picture of a Patrick Morgan on the post below, would this be the same family, slightly confused by the rodgers reference in the photo of Maria.

Unfortunately some photos are not visible, (hosting problems, fee etc) does anybody have any copies of the photos of the Morgan brothers who went to war (WWI) John and Frances or Spuddy Morgan as a POW ?

Look forward to hearing from ...anybody :sos:

Brothers-In-Arms WW1-John & Patrick Morgan was one post where two photos are not visible, there is another post showing Patrick Morgan returning from being a POW, I'll look for that.

Thanks

I've attached the photos to the thread now

http://www.oldwarrenpointforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1673&p=15977#p15977

The problem with photobucket is they removed free 3rd party hosting after over 10 years with no warning. So a lot of posts are missing photos - if I am notified I can (sometimes) access the photos manually and rehost them - but as there are so many its an almost impossible task for me to even attempt to start but I'll just have to work away in the background and fix them as I find them

Hi Brian,

thanks for adding the photos, can you confirm which photo was positioned on the left hand side when it was originally posted,it will help me to identify the brothers based on the information provided in the post.

Are you able to retrieve the photo from the post below ?

Thanks Colin

Photobucket seems to have caught on to the methods I was using to access the photos as I was only able to get this one before I was locked out
