The first three children were born in the Ballycastle area. The family had moved to Glasgow by the time of the 1881 Census. I am descended from Cornelius through his son John who immgrated to Cleveland Ohio 1923.
Annie was my gg grandmother. I have the christening gown that she mad for her grandson John and I also have a photo of her that appears to have been taken about 1870.
