great uncles + aunts who emigrated ROBERTSON,MACDERMID ,KELLEY
« on: Saturday 02 May 15 22:39 BST (UK) »
I'd like to find out if my grandfathers siblings managed to escape from poverty when they left Scotland  and how many cousins my father actually had ;
 in 1923  Agnes b1885 who married JAMES ROBERTSON  travelled with son James Robertson aged 3
and her siblings James aged 22  tinsmith+ Chrissy Macdermid  aged 16 umbrella maker .
James married Sarah Ross in 1925 Brooklyn
they had  at least 2 children     James Kyle MacDermid 1930 d 1977 

Chrissy 1907-1992 married John H Kelley b1906 also left Scotland 1923
they also had at least 2 children born in the 1930's

Their contact in USA was a cousin or uncle John mcfarlane

youngest brother John  b1910  travelled in1929
  passage paid by his brother so presumably James had got a good job
he died in 1982 aged71 but i don't know if he married or had children .

Any help appreciated
 
youngest brother John b1910 travelled 6years later

Sadly that looks like he did

James Macdermid - 29 January 1930 passed away July 1977 - Last Benefit 07480, West Milford, Passaic, New Jersey.

Have you tried the Passaic Public Library to see if they can find an obituary for James ?
