My great-grandfather, DAVID ALEXANDER,born 10.03.1855,immigrated to N.Z in 1879. He was from the small village of Lisnagunague in County Antrim. (Near Bushmills.)His father was JOSEPH ALEXANDER 1807 - 1887.
JOSEPH ALEXANDER had 2 known siblings: Matthew and Matilda. I would like to know whether there were any others. I would be interested in any information at all regarding this family.
CATHERINE STEEL was my great-grandmother. She married WILLIAM ROBERTSON who was born in 1825 in Northern Ireland.
Catherine and William had 12 children, three of whom emigrated to N.Z. My great grandmother, Martha, was one of these. Other children, Hugh and Robert emigrated to and died later in America.
I have no information at all about Catherine. When I visited Toberkeigh (NI) last year I was able to photograph a memorial that Catherine had had erected as a memorial to her husband William and sons Hugh and Robert. I took photos of a number of other Steel tombstones but have no idea if they are connected.
Catherine and William's children were the following: William, Agnes, Lily-Anne, Martha, Andrew, John, Catherine, Hugh, Adam, Mary-Jane, Margaret and Robert.
Alfred & Julia HILL emigrated to N.Z.with 10 of their children in 1883.
