Re: James Thomas McGivern
Dear Kerry, isn't this wonderful - if only our ancestors would help out a bit too! I've been on "emerald ancestors.com" and that givesa wide choice of McGiverns. Then there's "ulster historical foundation" which gives a James McGivern born 1880, father James
James Frederick McGivern born 1880, father Owen
James Henry McGivern born 1881, father Daniel
James Mcgivern born 1883, father Patrick, Co Down
James McGivern born 1883, father Patrick, Co Down
Would your relative run over by a horse in Liverpool be the Edward McGivern who died on 23rd Feb 1920? He had a ship's chandlers, a "rope yard" in Beaufort Street, Liverpool. His son is the James Joseph McGivern who is also buried in St Colman's/St Columbs in Massforth. Young James was over "home" Ulster and caught pneumonia and died there at Greencastle in 1913. His widow, Cecilia, was left with three daughters and ran the ship's chandlers afterwards.
Mrs Margaret McGivern (Edward's wife/widow) ran a Bed and breakfast at Greencastle but it was pulled down to make an airstrip for the second world war.
Will try more if possible. Don't believe in brick walls! best wishes, Pat
