Robert 1928 Lisburn, Antrim, Northern Ireland Father John Turtle 1883 Electrician Mother Isabella Johnston 1888

....

I have found a James McClatchy Turtle in USA but there is no other information.... Not sure if he is my James, but quite an unusal name.....

When Isabella Turtle nee Johnston 1888-1935 died her 3 youngest sons (Robert,James and John) were sent to a home.... This caused 2 of the elder sisters (Isobel and Sarah)to argue and not speak for years. Not sure why.

William 1914 left Ireland the day his mother died never to return.

Be great to hear from anyone who can fill in the missing gaps

Thanks
