CAN anyone provide pointers to the ancestry of my great-grandfather WILLIAM THOMAS MCCRORIE, born 25th August 1874 at (according to his birth certificate) Edenderry, Portadown?
He was the son of a labourer JOHN MCCRORIE and his wife, ELIZA BUNTING. On his birth certificate, the family name is spelled MCCROREY and I do not know if this is the correct spelling of our family name.
William had at least one brother, JOHN and a sister, HANNAH.
William was married in Glasgow in 1898 although I have no record of when he arrived in Scotland. I cannot find any record of his parents' deaths in Scotland and assume they remained in Ireland.
William Thomas died in January 1947 and is buried in Lambhill Cemetery, Glasgow.
Any pointers to Edenderry, Portadown or the McCrorie/McCrorey and Bunting families from that area would be much appreciated.
