I've just been contacted by Debbie who wrote:
"My grandfather is Reuben Cree from 8 King St, Bangor Co. Down he married Sarah (Sadie)Cree nee Hawthorne Dec. 7 1925
My mother was one of 9 of his children Elizabeth Cree dob 1/4/1930 died 15/3/2016 (my dear mother), other children are Emily (Selina), Hugh, John, Margaret, Ruby, Herbert, Henry (Harry) and William (Billy)Cree."
If any Cree Network members are also related to Reuben Cree then I am sure that Debbie would like to hear,
Dear Debbie my name is Dorothy Gabbey and my mother is Jane Cree. I have been looking at the info on Reuban in this site and found that he has been given the parents of my GG grandparents Hugh Cree and Elizabeth Cree (Majorie).
In my research Hugh is 60 years old at the time that Reuban was born and his wife 58.and it is hard to accept this to be true.
I have also found a marriage record which states Reuban's father is named Thomas George Cree. I acknowledge that these record are not always reliable but if you could give me somewhere I can verify the above facts It would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for any help to keep our records accurate
