Afternoon Deb

I have not found any further records of Joseph Lochran etc; including War Deaths.


Regarding Nichael's posting about Francis McGuire sailing to Quebec, the ship, DORIC, actually sailed on 3rd September 1927, which ties in better with the Arrival date given by Michael.

Francis wasa Tube Maker, last living in Kippen Street Airdrie.

From Find My Past, Travel and Migration section.

Francis travelled Third Class, paying Cash for the Ticket; and was aged 51 or 61, the original is hard to decipher.

Checking further on the Image, 51 looks more likely.

Francis is the last entry on Page 11 of the Manifest.

The first entry on the next page, 12, is a Mary A McGuire, aged 21, Domestic, travelling generally in Third Class - but on a different ticket. Her last address was Duff Street Glasgow.

Note that is all as directly seen on the DORIC's Manifest for that crossing.

On the same sailing, there are Arthur and Norah McGuire dron Southern Ireland, who joined the ship at Belfast, probably married as they travelled on the one ticket.

There are NO other McGuire (or variants) passengers on that Manifest.


Later in 1927, there is an Elizabeth McGuire aged 49, with Mary age 14 and Jane age 12, sailing to St John, New Brunswick, on the MONTROSE, departing Greenock 26 Novemebr 1927.

Last address was THrippen Street Airdrie.


The only other Elizabeth McGuire crossing in 1827 is on the ANDANIA, sailing from Greenock to Quebec 25 June 1927. Aged 50 from Bardowie Street Possilpark.


If Eliza Keenan was born about 1891, she is in the Maryhill Fever Hospital at the time of the 1901 Census.

There is a Rose A Keenan in thev "Catholic Orphanage For Girls, 570 Gallowgate, Glasgow, ", aged 11 so born about 1890.

There are some others - difficult to sort out without some more work and information from you.


A fair bit for you to dig in to"
