A love of a different kind

How can you love a person
who lived so long ago?
One you’ve never met before,
Someone you don’t know.

Back in Eighteen sixty-eight
Thomas Charles arrived.
First of six to come along
All of whom survived.

Sarah too was born that year
Fourth of five was she,
Sad to say in fourteen years
Five was down to three.

Then in eighteen ninety-three
Tom and she were wed,
There in a place called Henly
Wedding vows were said.

Life was hard in them there days
Thomas worked the land,
Sarah cooked the veg he grew
Children lent a hand.

Tom and Sarah had two sons,
Daughters, they had four.
All survived to be grown ups
But there were two more.

I do not know their names as yet,
Were they girls or boys?
All I know is that they died
Missing all life’s joys.

Forward now to ninety-six
Charles was their first son,
He served his King and country
Fought in World War one.

Then Charles, he married Lucy
Children, they had three,
My mum was the last to come
That then comes to me.

How can this poem fit the theme
‘Love is in the air’?
Each of these, my ancestors
Were unique and rare.

My love for them is diff’rent
Than my love for you,
Each one has shaped their children,
Taught them to be true.

Without each and ev’ry one
I would not exist.
Because of them, I am me,
Now you get my gist?

This was written for a competition with the subject - 'Love is in the air'.

Lovely Family History story about a workman's Gt Gt Grandfather:-
Gareth Greenhalgh was amazed to discover that not only was the first name on the list of heroes that of his great great grandfather but that his grandad lived at 55 Queen Street - almost the exact spot where the memorial will go up next week

Have you ever heard of a mug book? No, not the criminal ones, but the other kind - the biographical sketchbooks! You can use these biographies for further information and insight about your ancestors' lives.

Have you heard of a mug book? Not a book full of criminal mug shots, but a nickname for popular bio sketchbooks from the late 19th & early 20th centuries.

Devine family history : Ballymagorry, Tyrone - Campsie, Derry

The early accounts of this family history were written by Thomas Devine born in 1846, his son James brought it forward and then Thomas Edward Devine born NY brought it more forward.

This version of the family history has been put on the net by a man with the Devine surname (without the permission of this Devine family). I have a more modern version which names my immediate family.

If any of you are interested in the surname Devine from Tyrone, then it will make interesting reading. Historically it is interesting. It speaks of the family returning home on a holiday. It names so very many people from the area that the Devines were from.

My mother (Dr. Margaret Lyons (RIP)) died in 2009 and a yar or two before she died there was a Devine family re-union up in the Ballymagorry area which we went to. I photographed a large number of the people who had been at this re-union and I have images of these photos on from-ireland.
