Barony parish
Comments
I am trying to find out what happened to my great great grandfather William Galletly who was living in Barony parish Glasgow at the time of the 1851 census. He was born in Perth in 1824 married Jane Dalder in St Johns Free Church Barony in 1848 and died sometime between 1851 and 1865 when his wife Jane re-married. However I can find no official record of his death in the Statutory registers after 1855 and I understand that the Barony parish death records for 1836 to 1854 are missing. I am therefore seeking any alternative sources for this information such as gravestone inscriptions. His last known address was at 27 Campbell Street now East Campbell Street. That being the case can anyone tell me which cemetery he would most likely be buried in and whether the gravestones for that cemetery have yet been transcribed? Better still can anyone provide any information regarding the death or burial of the above William Galletly between 1851 and 1865?

She told everyone he died. We cannot find any death record in the US. We have also been able to find a birth certificate for him in Scotland. Thanks for any tidbit of info anyone can provide.

I am looking for information on George Ross. Originally from Old Deer Aberdeen he was a gamekeeper on the Aden estate. He migrated to Ireland about 1842/3 with Lady Mary Balfour as part of her entourage when she moved across to marry Lord Henry Herbert of Muckross Killarney. He lived there until his death.Family history has it that he was on Islay presumably as a gamekeeper. He is on the 1841 census in Aberdeen but I want to try and trace him on Islay as he had a son John Ross who I cannot determine was born in Scotland or Ireland. I believe that the Mitchell Library has Islay Estate papers but wondered if there was anything online to view. Many thanks.

My 3x great grandfather, John McIntyre (1783-1835), was a gardener in Barony. His wife was Agnes Erskine (1785- 1854). There were several McIntyre families who were gardeners and whose sons were John William and Alexander. They seem to have all been related but it is difficult sorting out which family an individual belongs to and therefore which line to trace back. I'd love to hear from anyone else researching McIntyre gardeners in Glasgow.

Thomas Joseph Corway was a clerk at Glasnevin Cemetery and I recently found that his Mother Bridget Keogh or Corway was buried there in 1870 aged 34 years.
