Trainor/Traynor Query

Does anybody know of this Trainor/Traynor family, in Leck 1900>1905 and Prolusk 1905>1920's?

Mrs Jane Trainor, nee Kirkwood, had sons, William and Patrick, and daughters, Sarah Jane and Mary. Mother and daughter Mary both died in 1929 in Ballymoney Route Hospital.

Patrick married Meta McDade/McDaid of Carnsampson, Ballycastle, and died in 1942 on the Burma railway line as a prisoner-of-war. But what happened to William? He is rumoured to have gone to Canada and possibly got killed around 1930. Does anybody know the story?

And also Sarah Jane, what happened to her? She may have been linked to a McSheffrey of Novally, Ballycastle, who walked with a limp after a WWI heel injury. The Trainors may have lived at Coolkenny, Ballycastle, for a time.

Please contact me through the NALIL blog if you know anything.
