The daughters name was Sarah McGrath / McGraw. She married William Montgomery (I dont know where) but she died in 1972 in Dundee. She is listed on one of the census as being born in Ireland

Thanks for taking the time to respond.


You are correct about the spelling and the variants as searching for McGrath, McGra or even McGraw could take an age.

Ireland / Edward McGrath & Rose Ann McGurk

Hi

I'm trying to find a marriage (probably in Ireland) for Edward McGrath & Rose Ann McGurk. Both were born at the turn on the 1800s and had a daughter in the 1830s so i'm guessing its around 1820-1835ish.

Any help would be appreciated

Just a note of caution, the OP mentioned "Kilbarchan (Linwood)".

Originally Linwood was part of Kilbarchan Parish even though they are 3 miles apart so the Beatties of Kilbarchan (Linwood) may not be necessarily to the Beatties from Kilbarchan.

You can also search the National Archive for Scotland to see the court papers if they still survive

Hi,

If you look for Maxwellton Road, Paisley on Google Maps, you'll see that it has undergone extensive modernisation and that there is now a school in the area where your ancestors used to live. However, if you move along the road to nos. 50, 52 and 54, you'll see the types of cottages and tenements that used to line the road. At least it gives you some idea of what the area used to look like.
I haven't lived in Paisley for several decades but, as I remember, the Coates factories were behind the Watermill Hotel on the River Cart, not on or near Maxwellton Road.
Hope this helps.

Happy hunting
Angela

Hi

The mill (Anchor Mill) behind the Watermill is still standing and has been converted into flats. There was a mill j(Ferguslie Mill) just along from Maxwelton but that was demolished in the 70s or 80s.
