Photo Album - Photos from Thomas JACKSON of Bangor, Co. Down.

These photos are - for the most part - mysteries to me. I have transcribed the inscriptions from the backs of them, but my knowledge of the people is either extremely limited or totally non-existent. I offer them here in the hopes that others may recognize them and help me to understand their "connexion" - as Eliza JACKSON would have called it (in her letters in the late 1800s).
Surnames include: ALLEN, BOGUE, DONALDSON, ERWIN, FARR, FFENNELL, GOGHAN, GILMORE, HAMILTON, HEENEY, JACKSON, McCLEAN, McCULLAGH, MENARY, ROHU, TOSS, and WHALLY. If I know anything else about these people, I have included a bit more.

Also, some more of Thomas Jackson's photos can be seen on my page on
Corr Family Photos.
