 Hi I would suggest the surname is Kilroe.  ? Not Killrow

 Hi snook,I understand your problem, if the name was taken from a cert or census, it could often be spelt the way it sounded to the person. Hence Killrow.
 Scepticism is necessary with regard to name's dates and age's of that era.The actual date of birth given,is often well before that time.
 And surnames. Example. Kilfoyle,Gilfoyle, Guilfoile.

Ola to You Snoop ;D Balnagar souds more like spanish than Irish.  ;D
                            I will look  around tomorrow,see if we can come up with anything close.
            I am sure you know that most of the Irish records were burnt in 1922.
so Irish ancestry  is hard.
        Try putting down all the information you have no matter how insignificant it may appear.
                  In return you can send some sunshine. ;) Cheer's Lep
