McGortey in Scotland
John P. McGortey, my g-gf, died in Cambria County, PA in 1918. According to his death certificate, he was born in Scotland in July 1861 and his parents, Patrick and Margaret, were born in Ireland. I could find only one record on the 1871 UK census listing parents Patrick and Margaret McGourtey, born in Ireland, and a 10-year-old son, John, born in Scotland.This was the census for Polmont, Stirlingshire, Scotland.Other children in this family included Bridget (born 1849), Patrick (born 1853), Thomas (born 1858), Catherine or Margaret (born 1860), and James (born 1863). Does anyone have information on this family?
