      At least some of Archie's children stayed in (or returned to) the neighborhood of Craigs Townland from Scotland, such as his son James Hoey, whose daughter Letty Hoey married Andrew KELLY at First Presbyterian, Ahoghill, 21 September 1960. (from marriage invitation in possession of the website author) Address for Mrs. James Hoey was "Maeview, Killane, Ahoghill, Ballymena." (I am informed that Letitia Hoey Kelly died in Ireland on February 2008)

      "my brother Archies birthday party with 81 descendants his own grandson took it [the photograph] he is 90 and had 2 strokes one leg paralyzed his sons wife in Ireland got double vision and could not take care of him his son took him to Scotland by plane he liked it fine he married at 18 and had 9 kids drove a crane through 2 wars in the Clyde shipyard..." from undated letter by Margaret (Hoy) Tate to her daughter in law Patricia (Flynn) (Tate) Peate in possession of the website author [written in 1962] [A picture appeared in the Ballymena Advertiser]

      Undated news clipping, unknown paper: "Family Gave Him 90th Birthday Party/ Hale and Hearty at his ninetieth birthday party in Gourock on Saturday was former Greenockian, Mr Archibald Hoey. Out of 80 of his family no less than 71 gathered in the Masonic Hall to pay tribute to this grand old man. Among the 80 members of his family, Mr Hoey had 31 great grand-children and the newest of these, 12-days-old Paul Robert Boyle, of Kilbannan Drive, Greenock, gurgled away happily in his carry-cot during the festivities. For 45 years of his life [someone has crossed the year out and written "9" in pen above it] Mr Hoey was a crane driver in Kincaid's. He will be remembered in the east end as a lay preacher, and one of the founders of the Bogston Gospel Hall. He left Kincaid's to go to Ireland, where he became a linen finisher in the little village of Cullybackey, near Ballymena. After the death of his wife, Mr Hoey came back to Clydeside and is now living with one of his married daughters, Mrs R. Stuart, at Cromwell Road, Dunoon. The party was a very happy occasion and the 90-year-old youngster enjoyed every minute of it, from the sing-song for the adults to the games for the children. There was, of course, a cake with 90 candles and the Telegraph picture shows Mr Hoey with his three sons, Robert, Archibald, and William, and two of his married daughters, Mrs R. Stuart and Mrs C. Gorman"
