LETTER OF THE DAY: Housing - more needs to be done

Have your say

Helping people to locate friends and family they have lost contact with

Barratt: Richard. Son of Marjorie, Barrett then Gawn. Resident and educated in Portsmouth. Whereabouts unknown. Likely late 60 early 70s.

MCKENNA: I am looking to find my uncle Frank (or Francie), aged around late 60s or early 70s. His father’s name was Thomas McKenna, who died in Beigh Five Mile town April 28 1961.

He was buried in the Forth Chapel Augher. His mother Mary McKenna (nee Murphy) from Middletown Armagh, died in Pomeroy about 21 years ago and is buried with her husband. My uncle’s brother Thomas (Tommy) McKenna died 3 years ago. He had 2 other brothers; Eugene and Michael, who is still alive. He had a sister too, her name is Bridie McKenna.

My uncle joined the army very young and was injured; a damaged ear drum left him needing an hearing aid. I have been told he saw me as a child; I am his niece and would like to find him as his two of his brothers have passed away.

MCMILLAN: I am trying to locate John McMillan, a member of my class who attended St Michael’s College, Underley Hall, Kirkby Lonsdale in the early 1960s. At the time the college was run as a junior seminary by Lancaster RC Diocese.

He originated from Greenock in Scotland, moved to Chatham and then to Portsmouth where he was last heard of in 1972. John would be 59 or 60 years old.

If any readers know the whereabouts of, or know John, then please contact me on. I would be pleased to hear from you.
