Hi all,

I have a Catherine McTaigh (many varied spellings) who gives her birthplace as Co. Wicklow, Ireland in a poorhouse application she made in Glasgow.  She was born about 1837, parents are James McTaigh (a hawker and/or a trunk maker) and Catherine McDermid according to her marriage registration to James McCormick, which took place in Liverpool in 1857.  It was Church of England demonination.

Catherine and James had moved to Glasgow by 1860, where she endured much, as James was in and out of trouble with the law.

I would love to find out more about her Irish roots, and would appreciate any help.
