Just picked up your message today. I don't know of any connection between your mother's family and my father's. Mind you, there is an awful lot that I don't know! I have found out that my gt grandfather Henry was born c 1859 in Ireland, and he is in the 1891 census with wife Jane and son Henry (b 1883 - my grandfather)AND TWO OTHER CHILDREN Mary (b 1889)and John (b 1890) there could have been other children after this, and who knows, you could be a descendent and relative! There are, however, lots of Glasgow Devlins. I hope that I have picked up Henry Snr's death certificate on Scots Origins, I have ordered the most likely one, and I am crossing my fingers and hoping!
