Re: James Henry, b. Ireland, 1889, lost at sea 1948
I am not sure how much we can tell you about James Henry, other than he would have been my father's uncle. James was a son of James Henry married to Mary Mulholland of Bellaghy, co Derry. He was part of a family of 9. In addition to his sister rose that you have information on, he had a sister Mary who married James mckendry, they had 5 children, all deceased. A sister Bridget who never married and died in July 69. A sister Lizzie who died aged 15, Sarah who married William Gallagher, they had two sons, tommy & patsy (both deceased). He also had a sister Annie who married Patrick McKendry, they had 8 sons & 1 daughter, all deceased except Tommy. A brother Patrick who died in WW1 and is buried in Paris. Rose also remarried a man Robert Sindle, they had no children. And finally a brother Bernard( my granda) he married sarah Boyd and they had 7 children. Anne, Mary, Patrick Martin, Bernard, jimmy, Bridget, and Sarah. Anne, Bridget and Jimmy are deceased. My father (Martin), Mary, Sarah and Bernard are all alive and well living in northern Ireland. Mary has some letters from your grandfather to my grandfather if you wanted to see them.
Hope this helps fill in some of the gaps!
