  1. Hello.
    My 2xG grandparents lived at 4 Watson place, Michael starrs (he died there in 1939) and his wife Catherine burns. Does anyone have any information on them?
    Thank you.

  2. My grandparents, John and Mary McAuslin lived at 3 Watson Place in 1940’s /1950’s with children Edward(Sonny) (my father), Catherine, Mary, James, John. As a small boy (1957/1958), I can always remember the curling stones that were on the steps of their front door.

      I only recently found this site. Jimmy McAuslin (your dad’s brother) was my uncle. I have a photo taken outside 3 Watson Place (probably after WW2) it has most of the family, including your Grandparents, and a few others. I’ll try to post it here if you are interested.

        Visited Watson Place recently and it jogged my memory of your post about your photograph of my relations. Am hopeful that you can post the photograph on this website.
