I'm trying to find more information about my great-grandfather Joseph Rafferty. He was born in 1875 in Carrickmore, Co Tyrone. His father also called Joseph was a farmer but we have no idea what his mother was called - or any infomation about siblings. He was listed as Roman Catholic. And the only other thing we really know about him was that he was really tall (well over 6 foot - which was big for that time!)

Joseph Rafferty enlisted into the Royal Marines Light Infantry in Glasgow in 1894 and was then moved to Plymouth, Devon. He married Florrie Elliot Tribble in 1903 and they had a daughter called Florence in 1905.

We have plenty of information after this time but there is a huge gap prior to his enlisting.

I would be really grateful for any help you might be able to give me. Or even better if someone has a mysterious great-uncle Joseph in their family tree that they don't know much about!
