My kids' paternal greatgrandfather Francis Crawford McDowall was born in Maybole, Ayrshire 1898, emigrated to NJ, USA in 1910 with his parents and five siblings, and died in NJ in 1950.
I'm looking for any of his family.
According to records on ellisisland.org, Isabella (Crawford, 1873-1949) and James McDowall (1872-1961) arrived in Montclair, New Jersey in May 1910, with their six children: Frank (our Francis) 11, David 9, Annie 7, James 5, Robert 3, and Margaret 10 mths. The parents and three of the children are registered buried in Pine Brook Cemetery, NJ.
James' parents were: David McDowall b. 1844, Girvan, Ayrshire married 1870 in Maybole to Annie Pollock Gordon b. 1848 in Ayr, Ayrshire
David's parents: James McDowall b in Girvan, Ayrshire married in Girvan, 1843 to: Margaret McDowal/McDouell, b in Kirkmichael, Ayrshire - her parents might be James McDowal/Mcdouell and Anne (Smith) born in Ireland.
