Mary Ann, Agnes and Samuel McGarvey

Continuing with the children of James and Mary Ann McGarvey...

Their seventh child Mary Ann was born on 18 April 1908. She was nicknamed Minnie or Min.

She is listed on the 1911 census with her family in Seaview Street.  Minnie married Samuel McCutcheon and had 2 children.

Both Sam and Min worked for the YMCA initially in Carrickfergus, then Barnard Castle and then the family moved to Croyden in Surrey.  Minnie died in 2003 at the age of 95.

Agnes McGarvey or Peggy was born in 1910 and is only 8 months old on the 1911 census in Seaview Street.

Peggy McGarvey

Like her father, she worked in Jennymount Mill when she was young.
She married Frank Hagan and they had two sons.

Sadly Peggy was knocked down and killed outside the Grove Swimming Baths in 1967.  My mum will never forget this day because it was her 15th Birthday.

Peggy and Frank are buried with her parents James and Mary Ann McGarvey in Carnmoney Cemetery.

Samuel McGarvey was the ninth born child of James and Mary Ann.  He was born on 13th July 1912 but died aged only 3 years and 8 months in 1916 from tuberculosis.
