I am trying to solve the puzzle of my grandfather,Philip LYNCH, who was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1902. His parents were Philip LYNCH and Mary DONNELLY - both born c.1870 - who apparently didn't marry until 1908 also in Glasgow. Other known children of the marriage were:- Elizabeth, Hugh, James, Patrick, Annie, Mary and (possibly) Josephine. Family stories indicate a Tyrone, Ireland connection. Philip (Senior's) parents were Patrick LYNCH and Elizabeth HART. Mary DONNELLY's parents were James (or William) DONNELLY and Mary MCCANN. I am also researching the following names:-
in Scotland - BRODIE, DANIEL, HASTIE, MADDEN, MARSHALL, DICK and WILSON.
in Germany and Poland - GEIKOWSKI, ZEIBARTH and KANUS
in Ireland - O'DONNELL, HEALY, SWEENEY and MCFADDEN.
All help is greatly appreciated and in return, I am only too willing to share my information.
