Hello there
I am looking for information on two of my husbands relatives. The first one of these is a great uncle, John Taylor , who was born in Danganmore , Co Mayo , in around 1910. He left Ireland and we think he went to Solihull - possibly had a connection with The Clock Hotel, Bickenhill.

The other relative was born, in Carrowkeel, Turlough, Co Mayo probably around 1886. We think he went to Birmingham before heading off to war and dying in 1916. This was Thomas jordan

It would be great if anybody has any information at all about these two, as there are big gaps in our family tree, where they are concerened.

Thanks
