Daniel Graham born 1901
« on: Friday 10 November 17 11:34 GMT (UK) »
Daniel was born in Glasgow but the family moved to Irvine, Ayrshire before 1911. He married Mary and they had two sons.
I understand they moved to Canada sometime in the 1950/60s.
I wonder if anyone can help confirm the date or location that they moved to?

Canadian Passenger Lists on ancestry cover - 1865 - 1935 - there are no air flights recorded for that later time frame.
Did the children have unusual names ?  Any other small detail that could help.   ???

Many thanks for your response Sandra.

I have checked Ancestry but as you say only earlier years, nothing as far as I can see for the 1950/60s.

I'm not totally sure of the names of the sons but Daniel & William most likely.

Such a common surname as well - difficult to know which area of Canada we might be looking at.

Think OP was saying arrived 1950/1960  - sons names possibly Daniel and William   ???

He said he wasn't sure of the names.
The address where they are going is in the same area.

US Visa
b. Dunfernline Scotland
Contact in country from whence came father Francis Johnston Kelty Head Main Street Kelty
Final destination Corona L I (New York)
Had been in Corona 1929-33, left in July 1933
Going to husband Daniel Graham 107,-12,-37th Drive  Corona L I New York

Francis Graham 7 months born Dunfernline during mother's trip

So...a Daniel and Mary Graham with a young son Francis
