James Carty, my grandfather's older brother, born in 1889 and lived in 3 Howes, (that's all the street address I have) son of James Carty and Elizabeth Owens from Irvine, The confusion of the surname comes from the fact that back in those days a lot of people couldn't read or write and surnames were spelled as they were pronounced
