Hello all;
I am attempting to obtain information on the following individuals:
James Esler, b.abt 1840 , d.11 June 1912 in Harcourt Street, Belfast , married Mary Jane Green b. abt 1842. They were married in 3rd Presbyterian Meeting House, Ahoghill on March 30, 1872. (I have a copy of the certificate)
I understand this church/meeting house is now referred to as 3rd Ahoghill Brookside??
The Eslers had at least 10 children, one of whom, Margaret Alice Esler, married my Grandfather John Mitchell.(They are/were my father's parents)
So my query: Does anyone have any additional info on the Eslers? Are there any living descendants that I could contact?
My name is Bob Mitchell, and I live in Southern Manitoba, Canada. I am retired and left Belfast in 1958.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Please reply and I will be in contact with you if necessary.
