Margaret McIlveney born 1835 in Ireland and died 1890 in Scotland is my great great great grandmother. She was married to Joseph McSloy and they lived in Port Glasgow Scotland. Seeing all these posts help me learn more about my family. Now I have an official copy of Margarets death certificate and RCE from the offcial Scotland site. Her death certificate shows her parents as Hugh Mc Ilvennie and a Margaret Mc Murray. Both deceased when she died. Margaret died suddenly in her sleep and there was an RCE added. This RCE shows her mother to be Margaret Lamont.
In addition all of my decendants in Northern Ireland and Port Glasgow are catholic and I have the marriage certificates. If Margarets father Hugh was not catholic I would be surprised. Unless its possible that they married a catholic family, the McSloys.
All of this is so very interesting and my most difficult part is getting more info from Ireland.
Does anyone have any info on Margarets husband Joseph McSloy the tailor? He seemed to have died young and I cant find his death certificate on the official Scotland site. Thanks !
