Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (G)

Country: Canada
My husbands father was William Gillooly and he was born in the Plantation area of Glasgow, he had one brother Michael and one sister Grace. William worked for British Rail, and Michael worked in the docks, because their mother had died when they were very young Grace was sent to England and worked in service. Williams father was also named Michael and came from county Sligo in Ireland, he had married Maria Dwyer went to work in Glasgow. They had two children but Maria died and Michael left both his children in care, sadly however both children died within months of their mother. Michael then seems to have gone back to Ireland and stayed there for some time. He then married a Grace McBride and they had three children (William, Michael, and Grace.) We can go back to my husbands great grandfather who was married to Honora Scanlan they lived in Sligo, and they only children that we can trace are Michael and Peter. Unfortunately this is as far back as we can go. If anyone has any suggestions on how to continue we would appreciate hearing from you.
