Family interred in IslandMagee -Ballykeel-Ballypriormore

Post by Talltrees » 10 Feb 2009, 13:32

I hope you got that e.mail as the computer went funny.
Just in case it didn't it was about the graves of Flacks in Ballypriormore.
The other grave of our family there says.

ERECTED BY WILLIAM DICK IN MEMORY OF HIS WIFE FANNY FLECK WHO DIED 13TH SEPTEMBER 1857 AGED 33 YEARS.
ALSO HIS INFANT SON HUGH WHO DIED 20TH FEB.1874

Fanny or Frances was the daughter of Eliza [don't know her maiden name] and James and the infant son Hugh was the son of William and his second wife Fanny Templeton.
It all gets very complicated.
If you didn't get the first e.mail I will let you have another one of it.
Hope you can help us especially with the one about the family grave of W.H. Flack one grave north and one grave south.
Thanks for you help.

Hi Rosemary,

If it was an email to me, I did not receive it. Post here on the Forum what you are looking for.
What helpful is the religion. On Islandmagee the people were mostly Presbyterian, Methodist and Church of Ireland. My information is that there were few Roman Catholic's if any in the 1800's. Religion is always a complicated issue in present day N. Irishs lives and politics but in genealogy research it is an unmissable asset. All 4 religion mentioned above have their own separate records, the 1911 Census records show the religion, etc. Also Islandmagee is one of the places that people changed religion during the "Great Revival" in middle of the 1800's. A lot of people on the Island became Methodist and remained so and others changed back years later.

greetings

Hi Liam

Sorry about all this don't know where the original letter went to.
The graves I was on about are;

ERECTED BY JAMES FLACK IN MEMORY OF HIS BELOVED WIFE ELIZA WHO DIED 24TH JUNE 1868 AGED 34 YEARS
ALSO HIS SON JAMES WHO DIED AUGUST 1866 AGED 11 YEARS.

IN MEMORY OF JAMES FLACK [TEACHER] WHO AFTER HE HAD SERVED HIS OWN GENERATION BY THE WILL OF GOD FELL ASLEEP
14TH DEC.1883 AGED 89 YEARS.
AND HIS WIFE ELLEN MCCARGO WHO FELL ASLEEP 20TH DEC.1896 AGED 75 YEARS.
A DEVOTED MOTHER AND KIND FRIEND.
ALSO THEIR YOUNGEST SON SAMUEL NELSON WHO DIED 11TH MAY 1870 AGED 8 YEARS.
THEM WHO SLEEP IN JESUS WILL GOD BRING WITH HIM.

ERECTED BY WILLIAM DICK IN MEMORY OF HIS WIFE FANNY FLECK WHO DIED 13TH SEPT.1857
ALSO HIS INFANT SON HUGH WHO DIED 20TH FEB.1874.

THERE IS THIS OTHER GRAVE
THIS IS THE FAMILY GRAVE OF W H FLACK ONE GRAVE NORTH AND ONE GRAVE SOUTH.

james was married twice fist to Eliza and then to Ellen.
Fanny Fleck was his daughter by Eliza her husband married twice and the son Hugh was from his second marriage.

As far as we know they were all Presbyterians but that is only a guess.

We found these graves when we were over in Islandmagee finding out about different members of the family.
We bought the book the history of islandmagee where james is mentioned a lot.
Thanks for your help.
