c 1870 Patrick McCloskey , son of John McCloskey of New Buildings ,Derry

We understand that my ggrandfather's family were from New Buildings in Derry. My ggrandfather Patrick was the son of John McCloskey - unsure yet of his mother. Patrick had a large family, but for some reason was not close to them. He married Sophia McFadden in Strabane, Co Tyrone in 1914 when she was 28 and he was already a widower. He died abt 1925, leaving her with 3 children. The McCloskey wanted to take one of the childre to be raised with them, but my ggrannie would not allow that -- and that severed the connections with them.

If anyone is researching a thread similar to this, please let me know.
