Iused to go on holiday to Buncranan, and knew Elizabth Burns married to William Dixon, they had 3 sons namely John William and Gerald. Iused to live with Elizabeth’s sister Sarah at Castle Avenue. Iwondered if you could give me any information about them. Thanks

  2. have I replied or have I just lost what I have written?

  3. I messaged you at the beginning of the year, and I think your reply
    got lost. I tried to send a message today, and I think my previous
    attempt might not have reached you. I still have not been able to
    find any information regarding the Dixon family, still hoping you can
    help me. Thanks

  4. Sorry about that Margaret it’s been a pretty manic year so far and I haven’t bee doing much work on the Tree. Remind me is this the Dixon’s connected to the Quigleys in Donegal or the Walkinshaws/Guthrie in Berwickshire?

  6. Hello Margaret We are Geraldine and Olive Dixon daughters of Gerald and Nan Dixon of Tullydish We are nieces of Willie and Elizabeth Dixon We knew
    Sarah Fletcher very well who passed away many years ago What information would you like to know?

  7. Hello there. I am Lilian the daughter of Sarah Jane Quigley whose mother Margaret Bell lived at The Big Holm, Tullydish. I am not sure who the Margaret is that you write to….my sister Margaret perhaps.

  8. Thanks to Olive Bailey, the information I was looking for is an address or e mail address for a member of the Dixon family, namely John, Willie or Gerald, the sons of Elizabeth and William. My own name is Margaret Woods, I used to go on holiday to Buncrana, where I stayed with Sarah Fletcher, and used to visit Tullydish. That of course was many years ago. I have thought of them often, and wondered where they are now. Hope you can help.

  9. I wrote to Margaret Thompson as I thought she was the one researching Are you related to Johnny Quigley who was married to Eva Brooks and lived in the Big Holm, He later sold the farm and moved to Derry and now both have passed away Do you want any further information about Quigleys or Dixons

  10. Yes Johnny was my mother’s brother. I can send you a pdf file of the family tree I have. I have also put together a book which is about the Quigley family and includes some information on the Dixon’s. I will also give you this link.

  14. Can anyone advise as to how Elizabeth Jane Dixon born 1867 and who married George Duffy fits into this

  15. Hi there. Just wondering if Margaret Thomson or Olive Bailey would remember if Sarah Fletcher from Castle Ave ever did patchwork /sewing/made quilts? Or perhaps Elizabeth? Any details greatly appreciated

  16. I am sorry I can’t help you here.

  19. Sorry I can’t help. In all the years I visited I never saw either Sarah or Elizabeth do any sort or needlework.

  20. Thanks Margaret. Sarah gave a quilt to someone in the 70s and we were wondering if it was made by her or a present from someone like my Granny who also lived in Castle Ave. I’ve found out where Gerry has moved to so I’ll pop in and ask him to be sure

  21. You said you would pop in and ask Gerry, did you mean Gerry Dixon, if so if you have an address for him could you please forward it to me. I would like to get in touch with him. I have some pictures if the family that were taken when I used to go and stay with Sarah, I also have one of his mum dad and family taken outside their house in tullydish. Hope you can help.

  22. Hi Margaret. I’ll try and go see him on Monday and I’ll get his correct address for you. Creina

  25. Hi Margaret Thompson. Lillian can give you my personal email if that makes it easier for you. It’s just that I don’t think I should post his address here online for all to see.

    Lillian did you get more info on the Brown family? My Da tells me most of them moved from Buncrana to Inch. I went to school with Paul Brown from Inch, now living in London. If I can help let me know. Creina
