Grahams of Belfast

Journal by Lizzyg1

My dad was Joseph Alexander Graham born on 29th June 1921 in Shankill, Belfast. His siblings were John Edward b. 1909 in Muttra India, Nora Evaline b. 1911 S. Africa, William b. 1913 Belfast.
His father my granddad was Joseph Graham b. 1879 Belfast married Lizzie O'Hara Sept 2nd 1907 at St. Annes Parish Chuch Belfast.
My graddads siblings were: Lizzie b. 1881 Belfast, Isabella b. 1883 Belfast, Martha b. 1887 Belfast, Robert b. 1890 Belfast and Mary (also known as Minnie) b. 1894 Belfast.
My great granddad was John Graham b. 1849 who married a Margaret b. 1855. I know virtually nothing of them yet.
My great, great granddad was Joseph Graham b. 1812 who was married to an M. Irvine, that is all I know of them.
My granddad Joe was in the 8th Hussars whic is why two of his children were born abroad. His wife Lizzy, my dad and my uncle Bill (William) came to live in England at the on set of ww2, my dad was in the RAF. My grandma Lizzy died in Withington hospital on 15th July 1957 and is buried in Southern Cemetry. My uncle Bill died on 27th July 1980 and is buried in the same grave. My dad died on May 11th 1986 and is buried in Wilmslow cemetry.
I know quite a lot about the O'Haras and have even found a living relative, however I am strugglbg a little with my Grahams! If anyone can enlighten me as to what happened to my dads or my granddads siblings that would be amazing!
So I hope this post helps somebody and I hope somebody out there knows of my family.
