Surnames: Gallacher's Wardlaws.
Hi, Most of my Gallacher's of Greenock Scotland have connections with the Wardlaw's. Wardlaw Family Tree confirms this. I have been in Telephone contact with the Wardlaw's Author. Unfortunately no information was exchanged. I did send a photo of a Memorial Stone commemorating A William Gallacher (GG/uncle)erected 1865 to Mr.Wardlaw, no acknowledgment received. I would appreciate the offer of your tree, it may have connections.


Good hunting,

Alf Gallacher.

Hello,

My family was from Paisly Scotland, my father was Samuel Gallacher with brothers James (professional football player - goalie), William (Willy), David (Aberdeen), Robert (Robert ie. Bertie moved to Long Island, NY I believe in the late 50's)there were also some sisters (I remember that one lived in England) unfortunately I cannot remember all the names as most them had died when I was very young.

We moved to Canada in 1952 -

My mother was an Aird from Barrhead.

I don't know whether there was a Wardlaw connection or not - will need to check with my brothers.

I will try and find out more information for you.

I am reseaching my gallacher family tree, Peter Gllacher and his wife Sarah( Flannagan) left Letterkenny, Donegal between 1835 and 1840, and went to Greenock, most of my Gallacher's stayed in Greenock until 1923, when some went to New york and in 1926 my grandmother, who was Hannah Kelly Gallacher, came to New Zealand.

Does this fit in with any of tour Gallacher's?


Regards Kevin

recently started on family connections to Mary Anne Gallacher b 1863, daughter of John Gallacher & Rose (M.S. unreadable), who married John McCoriskin (b 1859) in Glasgow in 1882. John was son of John McCoriskin & Sarah Morrow.

Also John Gallacher b 1861, son of John Gallacher & Mary Kelly, who married Catherine Colquhoun (b 1862) in Glasgow in 1881. Catherine's parents were Matthew Colquhoun and Margaret Holms (or Steel, by previous marriage)

ALl of the parents noted here were born in Ireland with the exception of Margaret Kelly who was born Pollockshaws, Renfrewshire in 1831 and the Colquhouns.

Both of the marriages noted above brought two sides of Gallachers together when John & Sarah's son, John McCoriskin, married John and Catherine's daughter, Margaret Gallacher, in 1912 in Glasgow. A child of that marriage, Catherine Gallagher McCorrisken, married Patrick Joseph McCulloch. They were the parents of my brother in law, John, who has left me to do the hard yards of researching his family.

Would be interested if you have any of these names in your sights.

regards

This is the greatest news. I must speak to you. I am new to this whole process. How can I get in touch with you. Do you still live in Scotland? Is Skeets still alive? My Grandparents Charles (Skeet's uncle) and Mary died (1973 and 1980)and all contact was lost. Please give me as much information as possible.
Thank you, John Gallagher. (They made my Grandfather change the spelling of his name when he came to the USA)

Please send me a copy of your tree. I do not have an official "tree". I have been putting this together by hand. I found that my great grandfather William born in 1871 lived in the Renton. His grandson was Skeets.
