red mail SMYTH, DIAMOND,LEINSTER, looking for family
BALLYCASTLE and area around. The Smyths were apparently blacksmiths from Mill Street Ballycastle. My grandmother was Mary Elizabeth SMYTH (1883). Her parents were Elizabeth and William Smyth. I believe William had a brother named Hugh(1852) married to Eliza (1887)and they had a very large family. my grandmother married Samuel Finlay DIAMOND. They emigrated to Philadelphia USA. I am looking for any information about these 2 families. I am especially interested in finding the maiden name of my grandmothers mother (Elizabeth). also any information about her brother William SMYTH. I have a photo of William in uniform about 1914 but I can't find any other info' about him. There are records for Samuels brothers, Andrew DIAMOND, Joseph DIAMOND, Hugh DIAMOND and a nephew Harry/Henry DIAMOND. I beleive one of the DIAMONDS had a shop in the 'Diamond' Ballycastle and another had something to do with shoemaking. Another surname connected to the family is LEINSTER and the towns of LARNE AND JORDANSTOWN. I would be delighted if someone had any information about my family. I am also looking for an old street map of Ballycastle around 1900, anyone with ideas of where to find one? Thanks for reading this I hope I will be successful. Anita

red mail looking for the mother of MARY (nee SMITH/SMYTH) DIAMOND
My grandmother Mary Diamond 1883-1953 lived in Ballycastle until she left for Philadelphia in 1903. She married my Grandfather Samuel Diamond also of NI, in the USA. There are several questions I have but to begin with I would like to find out the surname of her mother. I know her name was Elizabeth and she married a William Smith/Smyth, she died when my grandmother was about 10yrs old. William Smith/Smyth and his family was the blacksmiths in Ballycastle and had their business in Mill Street. I would love to hear from anyone who can give me any information about my ancestors. Thank you. ps another interesting thing was that my grandmother came back from Philadelphia without Samuel, had her first daughter Mary in Ballycastle, then left her with her uncle, Andrew Diamond and returned to the states. Daughter Mary went to the states when she was about 16 yrs old.
