Surnames: Dunbar Gilruth
I am looking for relatives of Jean Dunbar born in Blairgowrie Peth Scotland. I do not know the year. What I do know is she was married to James Gilruth. (no year) They had Children James Gilruth 1854, John Dunbar Gilruth 1858, Jeanie Gilruth 1862 and my Grandfather Robert Gilruth 1864. All born in Scotland. My grandfather Robert Gilruth came to usa. Don't know the year or how he got here. I do know he married a Mary Byron from Pennsylvania, Lackawana county. (no date) I do know they homesteaded in Missoula, Montana. I have the land patent dated 1909. My mother is there daughter Helen Gilruth Gallagher born in 1900 she had a sister Jean and a Brother Robert Dunbar Gilruth all born there. My Grandfather was killed over squatters rights they say in 1908 but I think that date is wrong because I have the land patent dated 1911 when my grandmother had the deed turned over to her in 1911. Plus my mom always said she was 9 or 10 when he got killed. Don't know where he is buried and have no death record.

My grandfather's brother James Gilruth homesteaded in Colorado. Don't know if he was ever married but he died around 1935 there because he left my mom and siblings money when he died. There has never been any mention of the other siblings. I just found the birth records on LDS. All from same area in scotland and same parents listed.

I am haveing the hardest time finding any info on this family. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Sharon Gallagher Shaffer
