I am looking for any infomation on George Williams who in 1808 lived at 64 Grafton Street Dublin.
Brother to John Williams [1741/1808], who was a Captain in the Bengal army of the East India Company.
Probable brother to Trevor Williams of Drogheda.
Probable sister to Rose Anne, married to William Beere of Dublin.

The Williams lines I'm working on stayed in Ireland and England until the 1900's. Sorry. I don't think we are related. I've printed your post and will keep it just in case. The majority of Williams I am working on were all born in the Dublin area except for a couple children who went to England, came back to Ireland, and returned to England.

I have postcards from Dublin Ireland addressed to Miss Charlette Rankin in Berkeley CA. dated in beginning 1900's. These post cards where my fathers from his family. My grandmothers name was Eileen P. Hitchcock. who married Edward D. Hitchcock both born in the late 1800's.
the post cards are all signed: The brittish brigade S.R.
Also, I have one signed by Hitchcock. I do not know much of my fathers side of the family and can not figure out where rankin fits into my family tree.
If you have any infomation on Rankins in Dublin Ireland that would be much help to me.

Thank you,
Terrie Sloan

Surnames: Hitchcock
Cecil Allan Edwin Hitchcock was born 22 Feb 1869 in Dublin, Ireland. He died 31 July 1938 in Oakland, Alameda, California. 12 Feb 1888 he Married Eleanor Jane Wilson Rankin in Martinez, Contra Costa, California. Eleanor Jane Wilson Rankin was born 23 May 1868 in Dublin, Ireland to Charles Rankin and Jane Ponsoby Wilson. Charles and Jane were married 20 Aug 1856 in Dublin Ireland. Charles and Jane did have a daughter named Charlotte who was born in Dublin 14 May 1866 in Dublin, Ireland, and died 23 Mar 1936. I do not know where she died. Both children are listed on the IGI of the LDS church. [See the internet] Information is also on their Ancestral File posted by Gayle Fay Shafer whose address was in Long Beach, but when I wrote her in Oct of 1995 she wasn't at the address. The 1900 Census for Oakland, Alameda, California ED 373, sheet 5, says that Eleanor Jane Wilson Rankin and her parents were born in England [but they were from Ireland]. It said she immigrated in 1887. I have not checked later census records. I assume she came with her family as she was married in California. I do not have an Edward D. Hitchcock who married an Eileen P., but Cecil Allan Edwin Hitchcock and Eleanor Jane Wilson Rankin did have an Edwin Derrick Hitchcock born in 10 Dec 1906 and who died 9 Oct 1960. Possibly your Edward could be related to Cecil Allan Edwin Hitchcock. Cecil and Eleanor lived in Oakland. Cecil is the child of George Rock Hitchcock of Dublin, Ireland and his wife, Frances Margaret Mary Ryan. They had two other sons, George Stewart and Francis Ryan Montgomery Hitchcock. I do not know if George had any family or married. Francis had a son, Regional Ingram Montgomery Hitchcock who came to the USA and died in Glendale, L.A., California. Hope this information helps you, Terrie. Take care, Flo
