The Billy Fleming you mentioned wasn't a Buffalo police officer. My uncle by marriage William Fleming (1934-1987) was a police officer. Bill and my aunt Sheila Dongian had five children. Mary, Maureen, Joan, Judy and William. My cousin William is a Tonawanda, NY police officer. Bill Fleming also had a sister Mary Doughtery.She and her husband Jim also have seven kids. Don't know how interested you are in genealogy but I know my cousins would be interested in learning more about the McGurns. I confess I'm hooked as well. Genealogy for me is like jig saw puzzle. I love to put the pieces together and see the final product. So I'm interested in finding out what happened to the McGurns /Philips families
I haven't had a chance to speak to my cousins, but I'll be happy to pass any information along. I'm still digging so any information I come across I will send to you. Thanks again for your responses.
