Looking for any info regarding these two names in our family. McVeigh is from Ballynahinch C Down- Looking for parents of John P McVeigh born about 1860s and a Martha MacAnearn (probably about same time) their 2 daughters were Martha and Lizzie (Elizabeth). Trying to go further back..so any info would be great.

Also looking for parents of a John Brown and wife Christina . John born again about 1860ish and Christina (dont know maiden name)were both born in Ireland but who were on the 1901 census for Cambuslang Lanarkshire, Scotland They had 9 children, one (David) born1896 Scotland was my grandfather and husband of Martha McVeigh above but the first three children of John and Christina were born in Ireland - not sure, if the Brown family were also from Ballynahinch area and maybe met when he was visitng his parents family in Ireland? - only a hunch!!

Any help would be very much appreciated.
