Trying to trace members of Caskey family

Published 14/08/2015

I am hoping to trace members of my family who live in Belfast.

David Caskey, born 1860, left Co Londonderry about 1890 to work in Belfast. He married Sarah Anne McKee on November 16, 1895 and they had four children: David, Sarah, Albert and Frederick. David Caskey died on August 17, 1930 and at that time he was residing at 27 Euterpe Street, Belfast.

James Caskey, born 1870, brother of David, went to live in Belfast around 1890. He had Margaret and Jane with Jane Spence and three children, William, James and Robert, with Letitia Murray. James Caskey died on June 5, 1945 at 22 Teutonic Street, Belfast.

Robert Caskey, born 1871, brother of David and James, married Elizabeth Spence and had seven children, Margaret Jane, David, Margaret, Robert, Agnes, William and Elizabeth. Robert died in December 1949 at 6 Balfour Avenue, Belfast.

I would be delighted to hear from any descendants. My email address is
