Citation Letter from Jim Baul Giving Family History;Jim Blaul; CMSIED 0709009

 My name is James Patrick Blaul and for years I have been researching
the Campbell side of my family. The family worked as fishermen off of
Lough Neagh and my great great grandfather James Patrick Campbell died in 
Lough Neagh in Nov 1880 at the age of 40. The family definitely was 
from Co Tyrone, Ardboe, in the townland of Farsnagh. That was based on a 
very recent find of my great grandfather's birth registry.
 There is so much unknown. How many brothers and sisters did my great 
grandfather have (Patrick James Campbell)? Where did they attend
church/mass (Roman Catholic)? How long did my great great grandmother 
live and where is she buried? Did she remarry? Are there distant
relatives on the Campbell or Dillon side in Northern Ireland?
 Any help you can provide will be appreciated!

 PS- I am enclosing many of the documents I have on the family. The 
only thing I did not include is the Griffith Valuation document from
the 1860s, which mentions Mary Dillon in Farnsagh. Also, some names
listed may be incorrect in chart below
