My great grandfather's brother, Archibald Scally emigrated from Scotland to Perth in 1926. With him were his wife, Sarah(nee Reid) and children Flora, Neil, Mary & Agnes. All I know about them is that Neil served with the Australian army in WW2 . I would like to know what became of them and if there are any descendants.

Thanks, Karen.

Hi Karen, I have only just seen your post and as it is 3 years old you may already have the information you wanted. The Scally's you mention came out to Perth with my grandparents from Campbeltown and they remained friends throughout their lives. If you do want any further info, please let me know as I do know a little bit about them. I know my mother went to a Scally funeral only a few months ago and it was from this particular branch of the family. Also my grandfather's sister Barbara McGougan married one of the Scallys in Campbeltown.

Hi bracken56,

I have a little info on this part of the Scally family i.e records of Archibald's and Sarah's deaths and recently I found an obituary for their daughter, Mary who lived in the States but any information would be much appreciated. I had a look on my tree and the Scally you mention who married Barbara McGougan was Andrew McFarlane Scally, who was my first cousin 3x removed. Do you know the name of Barbara's parents so I can enter it on the tree.

Thanks,

Kind regards, Karen.

You can contact me offboard.

Hi Karen

Hope this email reaches you. I have tried responding via your online ancestors posts but no joy. I am the great granddaughter of Archibald (Jock) and Sara Scally who tossed a penny to see which country to head for - Australia one. They were one of the first "10 pound migrant" families and there is a Perth newspaper article showing them arriving on the ship. Their daughter Flora McKinven Scally was my grandmother who was married to my grandfather Patrick Arthur Ratcliffe (British/Irish parents but he was born in Bombay India). Three daughters - my mother Lorna Charlotte, Patricia and Mary Elizabeth (called Marie). Agnes and Mary married US soldiers and went off to live in the US - I think it was Montanna - and had children, two of which I met many years ago in Perth. Elizabeth (Bet / Betty) married Richard Grigo and had three children - Janice, Carol and Gary. Neil married Lila and had three children - Lorraine, Geoff (sadly he died from cancer very young) and Shane.

I am going to stop here and wait to hear from you so you can confirm receiving my email - this is hard yakker following the family. Scally decedents living in Perth that could contribute quite a lot incldue my Aunt Marie and Bets' daughters Janice and Carol and I am sure some of those under Neil' line.

Your relative, Sandra Christina Martin, 61 years young.
