Joseph Boon & Alice Annie Boon Nee Milroy
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 16:34 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'm a new member to the board, I hope I am using the posting guidelines correctly.

I am searching for any descendants of Joseph Boon & Alice Annie Milroy
Joseph b. about 1902 to William Boon & Jane Boon ne Donnelly in Glasgow
Alice Annie b. about 1909 to William Milroy and Margaret Laidlaw nee McGreath ( I think)

Joseph and Alice were married June 12th, 1936 in Glasgow, Scotland.

I don't have death dates for either.

I would love some assistance to find children of Joseph and Alice.

Thank-you!

Thanks so much - one more piece to the puzzle! Is it ok to ask where you sourced the information ? ( my apologies if this is rude) - just hoping to learn some tricks as I go.

If you register with Scotlandspeople the indexes are free to search , however there are limits to the certificates that can be downloaded -

Thank-you! I've been searching ScotlandsPeople, but obviously I have some work to do on my search skills!

Some background on this search ( it's a bit of a convoluted story) My Great Grandfather Richard Craddock Gray Immigrated to Canada in 1924. Sometime between 1924 - 1928 ish he left his wife & 4 kids and to our current family knowledge, disappeared. My Grandmother remarried in 1948, so I assume there was a divorce? A distant cousin and I have worked together to trace Richard, who we recently discovered went back to Scotland, remarried Catherine Boon (Joseph's sister) in 1944, and they both passed in 1966 ( 20 days apart), they had no children. Joseph signed the death certificate of both of them. I am hoping to find the child or grandchild of Joseph and Alice in hopes of finding some memories or even photos of my Great Grandfather. I now have an idea of his movements, but no idea of the story of his life.

Any suggestions where I can search for Obituaries for Alice or Joseph? Thank-you!

Could be completely unconnected but there is an Alice Boone born in 1938 in Townhead.  It looks like she might have married Ian Campbell in Pollock in 1961.   
I looked on geni.com and it said that Alice Annie had a daughter also called Alice but the surname given was Milroy but I can't find that daughter but it could possibly be the one above?   The contact person was given as David Owers.   Could be leading you up a blind alley.

I've sent an email to David Owers - hopefully he can shed some light on the search - thank-you!
