John McCormick/ McCormack
« on: Sunday 26 October 14 11:15 GMT (UK) »
This is a total long shot with very few clues.

My mother-in-law's  father was a John McCormick / mack born in Ireland in approximately 1871. We know that he had a brother Charles. The story goes that when their parents died they inherited half a farm each. John married a Rosina Frost in Scotland (Rosyth or Edinburgh) in July 1917. He had 4 daughters. The youngest was born in 1931. He died in Rosyth in November 1937.

It is believed that John left a family and children Ireland.

I would be most grateful if anyone could make any suggestions regarding how I might track down our John. The name McCormick / mack is so common. We think he changed his name when he came to Scotland.

Many thanks.

Hi,
   In case it is relevant: 5 Dec 1869 James McCormick married Mary Ann Neely in Croaghmore Presbyterian Church, Ballintoy Parish, Ballycastle. The fathers' names were Charles McCormick and James Neely.

Thank you again. I need to know if my mother-in-law knows her Dad's birthday date. I don't think she will but her sister might.

Hi,

I have found out a little bit more. John's parents given on his marriage certificate in 1917 are Dennis McCormack, Farmer, Deceased and Mary McCormack, also deceased. In 1917 John was a 46 year old Night Watchman in Edinburgh.

Thanks for any pointers.

Since you haven't included place or parents it is difficult to know if this is the correct John McCormick/McCormack.

The one posted in reply #1 has different names for parents than OP last posted in 2014 (from John's marriage certificate)-

John Mccormick  BORN 31 AUG 1863 Killygordon. Co Donegal . Parents Denis mcccormick 1841-1916 and Mary mulhairn/mulherrin 1834 -1905 They married 16 NOV 1862. John is in 1901 Scottish census with first wife Susan Harley. living in ayr . You need to access 1911 Scottish  census to find them again . of course the 100 year rule applies so it would be free til 2021.
