I'm looking for information on my father's family tree. As they came from Ireland to Scotland it is possible that the family were Ocain or other variations of the 'Kane' spelling. If anyone recognises the names, I would be grateful for any information. The information I have is as follows:
John Kane (early C19th) m. Anne McGinty, had son John Kane b. 1859. He married Susan Ford (b. 1857) daughter of Patrick Ford and Rosanne McFadgon. John Kane and Susan Ford had my great grandfather Patrick Kane (b. 14th August 1894, and a brother named Tom) who married Margaret Dixon (b. 1st January 1895). They had 7 children: Susie (b. 1922 died. Whitby, 10/1/1983), Margaret, John (my grandfather b. 15/3/1927), Mary, Patrick (d.1944), Tom and Rosanne, brought up in the Edinburgh area. My grandfather John Kane (fireman) m. Flora McDonald of Liverpool, had one son Michael John Kane (journalist, press photographer & fireman), b. Widnes, Merseyside in 1951, brought up in Liverpool and Lancaster, married my mother Mary Elizabeth Edmondson, b. 1954 Lancaster, had myself Nina Rosanne Kane (10/10/1972), my brother Patrick John Kane (15/4/1974). My father remarried twice having 2 children David Andrew Kane (2/1/1981) and Rebecca Louise Kane (19/11/1982) from his second marriage and daughter Laura Grace Kane from his 3rd (b. 7/4/1994). I am married to Julian Nicholas Horsler with two children - Dante (b. 3/6/1995) and Emily (b. 1/1/2001) but still go by my maiden name.
I am very keen to have any information on my father's family, also to make contact with any living relatives (fathers' cousins, etc). Please get in touch if you can supply any information on the family tree. Thanks very much Nina Kane.
