Jim, I'm new to this genealogy stuff and have not completed a lot of research yet. However, when I read your posting something rang a bell. I know that my grandfather (James F McIlroy)was born in Canada 1923. His father's name was George McIlroy. I also believe that George's father's name was James as well. Does any of this tie in with your George? The time frame would be roughly correct. My George McIlroy would have moved to upstate new york area ~1920's.
