Re: Shields, McIntosh, Hay, Adams, Baillie, O'May - Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
The only information I have on Ann (Shields) Hay is what follows.
David and Ann were my great, great grandparents.
She was born ca. 2/15/1809, birthplace unknown (someplace in Scotland, other than Glasgow).
Parents were William and Jeanette (per death record).
Married David on 6/6/1824 in Glasgow in Barony Parish, Church of Scotland.
Came to America on packet ship "Independence"; arrived in New York from Liverpool on November 2, 1841 with 5 children, one of whom died 2 months later.
Lived in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
She died October 12, 1884 in Pawtucket and was buried in Moshassuck Cemetery in Central Falls, RI.
David died on Feb. 20, 1875 and is buried in the same cemetery in a family plot.
Sheri, which daughter did James McGowan marry?My records at that level are incomplete.
I can find no information that shows where either David or Ann were born.The 1841 census of Scotland shows them to be born in a place other than Glasgow.
It was difficult to find out when David died because there was nothing recorded at either the city or state level.I finally found a 2-line entry in the Pawtucket newspaper.
Hope this helps.If you can provide me with the name of the daughter I would appreciate it.
