Welcome to RootsChat
Was Coltness Cottage in Longford town?
I don't see a birth for Rose, or a marriage of Patrick Geelan to a Sarah.
Do you know if Rose has any older siblings?
Do you know Sarah's maiden name?

Hello and welcome  :)

There is a published tree which has Rose Geelan/Geilan with parents Patrick G and Sarah McClusky.
There are no birth details for Rose except Lanarkshire, Scotland.
It mentions a Mullen marriage and a death in Coventry.

Is this your Rose?

What is interesting is that Sarah, mother, died in Mossend, Glasgow.

This unrelated Rootschat post mentions Coltness Cottages, Mossend.

Father Patrick is shown as born 1878, Drumlish, Longford so this is perhaps why you have posted here, Edward. His parents are named as John Geelan and Maria Walpole.

There is this birth

I am hoping that this is the right Coltness Cottages - you need to scroll down a bit

There are photos here which would give an indication of the area. Coltness Cottages were in Calder Road according to the previous site

That’s good.
I hope that the other items helped you too.
If you need anything further just post.

This is a useful site for civil records from 1864

Here, for example, is the marriage of John’s parents

This small snippet of map will give you an idea of location of Coltness Cottages (which were  off Calder Road/Clydesdale Road, Mossend, in front of a railway line and opposite a school). The original, larger map can be found at: www.old-maps.co.uk. A few of the cottages fronting Clydesdale Road are visible in an old picture that can be found in the book Bygone Bellshill by Rhona Wilson.


Patrick Gillon is noted at  number 34 in the 1920 and 1925 Valuation Rolls, so possibly your Patrick Geelan. Doesn't look to have been there in the 1930/35/40 Rolls. There was a Mrs Sarah Geilon recorded at 90 Hope Street, Mossend in 1935 Rolls.
