Maura..That fits nicely with what I found..and at long last have managed to find ref to William's age when he committed the murder..!

"Mitchell, 24, was then charged with Robert Dixon’s murder. Found guilty at his court-martial in April, he was sentenced to death, his execution following at Dublin’s Mountjoy Prison on June 7th, 1921."

Well it looks like it all fits, just have to wait and see what Jane thinks.


Jane Report 28 Jan 2013 22:46

Many thanks for all your research, It's wonderful to read all your information.
I was searching for W.M birth year as 1888 so that the reason I was unable to get anywhere. The family tree is it Mitchell or Foreman tree

Do you know what kind of boarding school it was.maybe for bad boys school.
Now I can try and connect WM to my family and see how he was related to my late father.

Once again Thanks :-D

Maura, Eringobragh,

Now you both have found all this information- do you have any advise on how to connect WM to tree.
Do I look for information on Joseph,born1864, find his parents,or keep my research to William.I'm at a brick wall.
You have been great help with all your information.

Regards....Jane- Belfast

Jane....Havergale House Boarding School was an Protestant Orphanage but also known as a "Blue School" ..definition of that..known to provide outstanding education..however I dont know if that was the case then...regime was extremely strict. It may also have catered as a Boarding School for boys of Military Personell as a look through the Census has boys from everywhere not just Ireland and if you look at this site there is a very good photo....

The tree belongs to a ronaldwebb, as for connecting William to your tree, his army records link him, but you could apply for his birth cert from or even his marriage.


Jane Report 29 Jan 2013 22:08

Maura & Eringobragh,

I'm unable to find ronalwebb tree-where did you see the tree.

Once again many thanks for all your help.
