Looking for information on my 2GGF Denis McIlroy and his wife Ann Elizabeth Adams, most likely from Leitrim, Ireland. Only known child is Ann McIlroy who married Michael Casey in Edinburgh on the 28th May 1869. Both Denis McIlroy/Ann Elizabeth Adams stated as deceased on the marriage certificate. Not known if they came to Scotland or not. So far, I can find no further records of them.
Michael Casey/Ann McIlroy had 6 children, Patrick (1870), Catherine (1872), John (1874), Francis, (1877), Ann (1880) and William (my GF 1891). The 1881 Scottish Census has Michael and Ann as born in “Leithrin”. I can find no such place, hence my assumption of Leitrim. This 1881 census lists all children as being born in Inveresk, Edinburgh, Scotland. However, the IGI lists Catherine and John as being born in New Monkland, Lanark, Scotland, and Catherine’s birth certificate states she was born at 101 High Street, Airdrie.
The IGI also shows numerous McIlroys and Caseys in the New Monkland area at this time. Any information appreciated.
