Looking for information on the name McElearney or McElerney. My great grandfather Peter McElearney/Mcelerney was born in county Monaghan aprox 1850-1860. Moved to Glasgow at age 11 or 12. My grandmother Jeannie Mcelerney immigrated to Canada in 1911. I am looking for any information on either the family or the name. It is very uncommon and infact does not show up on any genealogical sites or on any surname searches in Scotland. I was wondering if in there is another spelling of this name. Any help would be much appreciated. I have no information on Peters parents but 5 families with the name McElearney do show up on the LDS family search. Three in Castleshane and 2 in Ballybay. I cannot find out where exactley Castleshane is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
