Doing some research and came across this post and thought I might add some family history if I may.

My great grandfather John McCUE was living at 37 New Street Duntocher in 1911. From the census and war records;

McCUE John (48) Sewing Machine Builder
McCUE Margaret (45)
McCUE Thomas (19) Sewing Machine Builder - Killed in WW1
McCUE John (17) Plater's Helper Shipyards - Killed in WW1
McCUE Mary (14)
McCUE Elizabeth (6)
McCUE Margaret (2)

The family moved to Duntocher from Glasgow. Elizabeth and Margaret were born in Duntocher. Margaret was my grandmother.

With reference to other posts in this topic there is some relationship to Gallachers and Dochertys from the Dunbarton area.

Hi Jim

I have McLaffertys in my family tree from Duntocher but not done much research on them. My G Grandmother was a Janet McLafferty - more detail on my website:  http://fornhelper.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=fornhelper&view=9&ver=762

If anyone has any info on this branch of McLafferty's it would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
