Re: Gilmours in Glasgow

Hello Kim:

Not an Irishman in sight, I'm afraid. My G-Grandmother was named Jessie Gilmour and was born in Muiravonside in Stirlingshire. Her father, William Muir Gilmour, was a flour miller at Port Dundas in Glasgow mid 19th C but I don't know anything more about him except that his wife's name was Catherine Allan and they had four daughters.

Where did you find the marriage of John and Rosanna? I couldn't find it. Also I realized I was wrong about Helen Gilmour and the 1861 Census once I discovered her age at death. However there is another Helen Gilmour in 1861, living in Airdrie, Lanark, age 72, (since the age given in 1851 was 62!). She doesn't appear to have family with her either. Where was John living in 1871 and 1881?

On LDS Family Search there is a John Gilmour b 1865 living in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois in US 1910 Census with his wife Emma and two sons Robert and Joseph, who was born in Scotland and his Immigration date is given as 1886. He married Emma T Craig in Cook County, 20 Jan 1900. Could there be a connection here?
