I'm trying to research my dad's family and I have reached a dead end.
My Grandfather John (Jack) McCreary and Great grandfather George McCreery both came to Canada in the early 1900's. My grandpa Jack was born in 1911 came to Canada in 1924 and passed away in 1973 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. My great grandfather George McCreery passed away in 1946 in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, Canada. His wife Mary McCreary (nee Gibson) stayed in Ireland.
My father has in his possession the judicial adminstration of the estate of George McCreary from December 1946, which lists the children of George and Mary - and three of the addresses are in Portadown County, Armagh, Ireland.
Richard McCreary (McCreery) 22 Castle Ave. Portadown, County Armagh, Ireland
George McCreary (McCreery) No. 8 Charles Street Portadown, County Armagh, Ireland
Frank McCreary (McCreery) No. 2 Redmanville Raltylum Portadown, County Armagh, Ireland
His wife Mary and another son, James are listed in Belfast, a daughter Sarah Haakanson is listed in England, and another son Samuel is listed as being in the military.
My grandfather Jack's family only kept in touch with one cousin, George Haakanson who also has not kept in contact with any other family members.
I am wondering if any children or grandchildren of my three great uncles stayed in the area, and if any of them could help with tracking the genealogy of our family. McCreary could be spelled either way, my grandfather went by McCreary and my great grandfather went by McCreery.
