US Lookup Requests / William McGhee, Scotland to ????
« on: Wednesday 06 September 17 10:15 BST (UK)  »
Trying to trace William McGhee who according to family lore, flitted to America/Canada and left his wife and young children behind in Scotland.

He was born in 1868 in Port Glasgow to parents Patrick McGhee and Margaret Reilly.

William married Mary Fitzgerald and had three children (that I know of) and last we know of him is his appearance with his family in the 1901 census at Adelaide St in Inverkip, Gourock, Scotland.

He was a seaman/ships plater to trade.

Has anyone got Any thoughts on how we might find a death certificate, and see what really happened to him?

When you see Gill or similar like that , it can mean boy or lad so "Son of the Lad, Calum" ... Calum is derived from the name Malcolm

Hi Langwell, if you suspect Lairg Cem. Or Rogart Cem, you could contact Highland Council TEC Services, Drummuie, Golspie KW10 6TA and ask them to do a search of the burial records

Hi Alasdair, any connection to the Abriachan MacDonalds? Some of them lived around Kiltarlity/Kirkhill direction and they were supposed to be Of the Glencoe clan!

Rdmclure ... Culreagh would be Kylerhea, Glenelg. A lot of McLure history in Glenelg, possibly a separate family from the McClures of Skye though.

Thanks Nettie, and eek yes it sounds an awful that in todays world could be successfully treated perhaps.  Alas this ancestor had the condition in the 1860s.

Thanks again for deciphering  :)
