Could you get your parents marriage certificate for more information?

Sorry to go on, but do the sons Brian, Peter and Noel have the surname Patton?

Have you got an approximate year of birth for him?

(Is the sister actually Patsy, but do you know her married name?)


You have him as 1946, Belfast in your tree?
