The family name I am researching is GASTON. My husband's g/father was Samuel Gaston (b) 1866 - (d) 1924 in New Zealand.
Samuel came to New Zealand aged 17 (or there abouts).
He was one of 12. Samuel farmed in New Zealand, and also became a Presbyterian Minister for some years, before returning to farming.

Samuel's father was John Gaston (b) 1826 - (d) 1886
His mother's name was, Margaret McCormick (b) ? - (d) 1890
Both are buried in Clough Cemetery.

I have some information of the next generation of the family, but I will look forward to any help at all.

I believe the family came from Ballymoney.

Hi Sham

I think we might be researching the same family, but not positive.
The Gaston I have ( and I don't have all of them) don't match the info that you posted, but there are many Gaston in my line and recently I have contacted one, but need more info.

The reason I think they are the same family is because they are buried in Clough.

I live in the USA, I do have a Samuel, but I dont know his wife's name or his date of birth.
A lot of my Gaston's married Adams. Do you have any Adams?
Also, some went to Australia and New Zealand

Hello rubysyd,

Sixteen people named Gaston from Ballymena signed the 1912 Ulster Covenant.

When were the family you're seeking living there?

I've created a link to your other thread.
