red mail Timmons - Where did they originate?
The records of the Quaker church in Lurgan have entries around 1700 for the Timmons family. They were linen weavers. George Timmons b. 29 APRIL 1672, married Mary Turner. Their children births are recorded in the church register from 1693 through 1702. Timmons is spelled Timmony in the record of contributions to the Quaker meeting house. Does anybody know where George Timmons was born in 1672? Family legend is that they were French Huguenots and Timmons is the Anglicization of their name.

By the time of his marraige in 1891, He had moved to Scotland. There are three other probable sons, though the mother's name varies slightly. James Hamill b.28 September 1873 (mother - Sally Ann Lavery), John Hamill b.12 September 1871 (mother Sally Ann Laverty) and Joseph b. 9 August 1880 at Derrytresna? Armagh (mother Sally Ann Laverty Hamill). The 7 years between James and Joseph would suggest other children if these are the same family. Does any of the above look familiar to anyone? Here's Hoping!
