Hugh:
Thank you so much for this. This is my uncle Pat, after whom I was named. I never knew the exact date of his death. I see so many familiar names of my relatives here. Thanks again.

High Dukestreet, Don't recall seeing this before. It brings to mind the Clemos of the lower Dromore Road - Clair and Rolly - where are they now?

George, I don't remember those girls, but if I am up past Albert McMahon's place in the near future, I will ask him.
