red mail Bleakley Family
Hi I am searching for my Great Grandfather John Thomas Bleakley Born 1882 in Glasgow along with his Sister Sarah who was born in 1884. We have found on other sites a link with Coatbridge but cannot be 100% sure we've got the right relations. They consequently returned to Belfast with their parents (I am not sure when) they do appear on the 1901 census and by this time my GG Grandmother (Agnes) was widowed. There are two other brothers on this census Patrick (Born 1878) and James the youngest (Born 1887). However by the 1911 census they are nowhere to be found and I am assuming they returned to Scotland. My Great Grandfather fought in WW1 in the Irish Rifles and I would love to find out where he fought etc. He survived the war. He also married my Great Grandmother Isabella and my grandfather was born in Belfast in 1913. Sorry for the long email but I though I would put in all the information we have at present. Thanks in advance.
