2nd Battalion, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (British Army)
11/07/1916 (Killed in Action)
John Timoney was a son of Edward and Brigid Timoney. John was born about 1899. The 1901 census lists John as age 2 living with the family at house 7 in Loy Street, Cookstown. His father was a labourer. John Timoney enlisted with the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in Londonderry in 1914. It is believed he enlisted in Londonderry because he would have been just 15 years old at that time and therefore underage. His elder brother Edward had already enlisted. Private John Timoney was killed in action on 11th July 1916 near Ovillers-la-Boiselle.
