John Devlin b Blantyre Scotland Abt 1877
Posted by: Jim Devlin (ID *****9302) Date: May 16, 2002 at 06:36:11
  of 1442

John Devlin was born abt 1877 in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Parents James Devlin and Isabella Halliday.

John married Mary Unknown in Scotland and had a daughter Mary born Abt 1904 in Scotland.

John aged 28, Mary aged 25 and daughter Mary aged 1 arrived at Ellis Island on the 17th April 1905 from Glasgow on the ship Columbia. Records show they lived in Bo'ness, Scotland before their departure and that their final destination was St. Benedict, PA to stay with John's brother Thomas Devlin.

John and Thomas Devlin are two of my grandfather James's brothers.

The 1920 US Census has the family at Frankfort Heights:

John aged 43 having arrived in the US in 1905, a foreman coalminer,
Wife Mary aged 40 having arrived in the US in 1905,
Daughter Mary aged 17 having arrived in the US in 1905, a servant for a private family,

and two additions:

Elizabeth aged 13 born in Illinois, and
Rose aged 11 born in Illinois.

Does anyone recognise this family or have any further information??

I can be contacted on:

Any leads appreciated . Thanks.

Jim Devlin
