This sounds remarkedly familiar to me.My grandfather, Bernard, had a brother named James. I know that James eventually settled on Staten Island, NY and raised a family of 10 children.I also know that he immigrated to America several years prior to most of the rest of his siblings.My grandfather was born in 1911 in Glasgow, Scotland and immigrated to Saskatchewan, Canada in 1927.His father's name was Francis (Sr.) who was born in County Antrim sometime in the 1870's.
Does this list of siblings sound at all familiar to you?
Francis (Jr.) James Edward William Bernard Michael Mary Margaret Gertrude
If so ... my cousin, Michael, has gathered a lot of information on them and I could put you in touch with him.
