My grandfather Robert Conner was born circa 1888 in the district of Magilligan which is outside of Limavady in County Londonderry. We know very little of Robert???s early life and not been able to find his birth certificate.
We can only guess at his mother and father???s names which we think were James Connor and Eliza Ross but we cannot say for sure. Robert went off to Scotland in 1908 and remained there for the rest of his life marrying in Glasgow in 1920 my grandmother Mary Baird. My mother Margaret Baird was born in 1923. We know so little about Robert???s parents, we do not know when they died or where they are buried so it is to their lasting memory that this memorial is dedicated.
