 James Birch GILMER aka GILLMER aka GILMORE (1846-1927), married Mary McCREIGHT (-1884). She died in 1884, three weeks after the birth of their daughter, Elizabeth. He and Elizabeth subsequently emigrated to New Zealand.

 John BATES Interestingly, it is a William BATES whom we have on record as being at the Crossmaglen Bank: SOURCE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/letters/1906Sept22.htm Mr. Bates was promoted from Cross' branch of Belfast Bank to Saintfield where he was only able to do duty two days till he had to lie down and he is dead and buried. Janie and the children are gone to live in Belfast where David is entered in the Bank. I wonder if they were related – John BATES possibly being the father of William BATES?
