Ancestors of Alexander Thomas Fisk


16. Arthur Fisk

His entry in the 1901 census has an incorrect relationship to his father - Servant rather than Son.
He was the informant of and present at the death of his father on 17 Aug 1908.

He drowned in 1947 when he "collapsed in bath in residence".

18. John McPeak

A baptism record from Frank Fisk shows that he was baptised at Greenlough Catholic Church, Portglenone, Co. Antrim, Ireland. Portglenone (in its own RC parish) is in the civil parish of Ahoghill which is on the border with County Derry. But the RC church of Greenlough is in County Derry. A photo of the church accompanies this entry.

Ulster Historical Foundation
John McPeak was born in 1869, his baptism records states that he was christened on 8 July 1869 and that his place of birth was Moneystaghan. John's godparents were Daniel Mulholland and Susan Martin.

There is another John McPake born in 1844, Ireland (also a Chemical Laborer). This is not his father but could he be related?
