Alexander McCargo married Margaret Montgomery on 8.9.1893 at Inver 1st Presbyterian church in Larne. He was a seaman and his address was Islandmagee. His father was James Stuart, a labourer. (Suggesting perhaps Alexander’s mother had remarried).

Alexander and Margaret in 1901:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Antrim/Islandmagee/Ballylumford/989821/


Family look to have been in Anderston by the 1911 census. A total of 8 of them in 2 different references (644/11 9/13 & 9/14).

Alexander’s death is listed in Partick for 1944. That should confirm his parents names and also tell you whether Maggie was still alive then. I have searched for a death for her but did not find one.

This might be Maggie’s parents in 1901:

Probate abstract from the PRONI wills site:

Probate of the Will of Samuel Montgomery late of Ballycronanmore Islandmagee County Antrim Retired Farmer who died 4 July 1907 granted at Belfast to William Montgomery Farmer and Robert Bailie M'Ninch Solicitor.

The will itself is on-line on the PRONI wills site:

James Stuart was born James Stuart McCargo I was told a story about that I believe I have the next generation up I added to my tree but wasn’t sure if it was correct

I will go through every link you sent tomorrow after work ! Thanks for the help

Just joined the site and found this. Alexander McCargo and Margaret (Montgomery) were my great grandparents. Their daughter Maggie was my grandmother. Just navigating the site, but lovely to see this. I'm struggling to make sense of the McCargo side as Alexander's birth date and parents names seem to differ depending on which records I look at. Any help much appreciated.
