The Taylor Family
 
This second branch of the Taylor family has also been traced to Calum's and Jamie's ancestry in 19th Century Belfast, Co. Antrim, Ireland:
Eliza Taylor (abt 1828 - 12/2/1904) md: Thomas Graham
 

Eliza Taylor
b: bet 1825 & 1828   d: 12/2/1904
 
Eliza was Calum's and Jamie's four times great grandmotther.
 
Not a great deal is known about Eliza at present. She married Thomas Graham, a reeling master in the mills of Belfast, on 5 APR 1840 at Tyholland Church of Ireland in County Monaghan. At the time of the wedding Thomas was resident at Feduff townland (Foyduff) in Tynan Parish, County Armagh, whilst Eliza was from the townland of Tuckmilltate in the parish of Tyholland, Co. Monagahan. The officiating rector and vicar was Rev. John R. Tarleton. The witnesses were William Sharp and John Higgins (RootsIreland). Eliza went on to have at least eight children with Thomas in Belfast.
 
Following the details of Eliza's children, and from various trade directories, we can trace some of her movements by identifying where Thomas was located. In an 1850 Belfast street directory, Thomas was listed as a carding master. He was then noted at 86 Henry Street as a 'spinning master in mill' in 1863-4, again in the birth certificate of his son William in 1864, and at the same address once more as a 'mill overlooker' in 1868 (Source: PRONI www.proni.gov.uk). In the 1870 Belfast Street Directory Thomas was noted as a reeling master at 92 Henry Street.
 
From the birth certificate of Eliza's daughter Wilhelmina in February 1871 it is noted that the family was resident at 38 Ship Street in the Shankill District of Belfast, Ireland, and that they were Church of Ireland by religion. In November the family was residing at 206 York Street, as noted in the death certificate of her son Albert. In the 1877 street directory for Belfast Thomas was again noted at 206 York Street, and again in 1880.
 
At some stage shortly after this Eliza accompanied Thomas to England, ending up in Barrow in Furness in Lancashire. From the 1881 census for Barrow, Thomas was listed as a 60 year old clerk from Ireland, married to 50 year Eliza, also from Ireland. There were three children present with them at their house at 82 Marsh Street, being Calum's and Jamie's 19 year old three times great grandfather Edwin Graham, a shipwright, his 16 year old brother William Graham, also a shipwright, and their 10 year old sister Wilhelmina Graham (1881 census Eng and Wales: RG11/4291/55/p.11).
 
It is known that whilst resident in Belfast Eliza and her family regularly worshipped in St. Pauls Church of Ireland on the York Road, Belfast. As well as living at 206 York Street, the family also possibly resided at some point at Brougham Street.
 
Thomas appears to have died prior to 1901, though his death record has as yet to be located. In the 1901 census, Eliza is noted as residing at Garden Street in Belfast's Dock Ward. She was a 75 year old widow, Church of Ireland by religion, able to read and write, and from Belfast. Also present was a 12 year old granddaughter, Mina Graham, who was attending school, also Anglican and from Belfast, and able to read and write.
 
It appears that Eliza was recorded in the 1901 census at Garden Street in Belfast's Dock Ward. In this she was noted as a widow, and incorrectly as having been born in Belfast.
 
Eliza finally passed away on 12 FEB 1904, at 57 Ship Street, Belfast, the cause being chronic bronchitis. She was noted as 76 years old and the widow of a reeling master. Her son Edwin, from 35 Upper Canning Street, was present at the death, and acted as informant to the registrar later the same day (Source: GRONI D/1904/47/1007/31/397). Edwin also oversaw his mother's burial two days later at Belfast City Cemetery, at a cost of 7 shillings and sixpence (Source: Belfast City Council burials database; Ulster Historical Foundation death entry).
