Hello all,
I am new to the forum and I hope that I might be able to get some information on details of my great Uncle who emigrated to Scotland circa 1900- 1920. It is thought that he joined the police Force and stayed in Scotland, Glasgow until his death. His name was John Mulhaire or Mulhern from Co Mayo, Ireland. (known as Mulhaire in Ireland) There may have been a name change some where along the line as the name may have changed to Mulhern. One thing is certain though, is that he is buried in some Cemetery in or around Glasgow.(I have an old picture of his grave with no details ). As he was RC I assume the picture is of a roman Catholic Cemetery. He probably still has relatives still living in the area.
I am only starting to do this research and any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, THANK YOU,
Rgds
Mick

Hi Steve,
Thanks for getting back to me. The info I have is fairly sketchy at the moment but I would estimate that he might have been born around c1875 -1885. I cannot see him on the 1901/11 Irish Census and I think that he may have been in Scotland around then.

Hello Mick

Welcome to the forum. Your John doesn't seem to be showing in the 1911 Scottish census, in fact only the Engish census pops up, but sadly I coudn't find him there either.

Something to ponder...

British Army WWI Pension Records 1914-1920
John Mulhern
1914
Residence: 288 Main St, Maryhill Glasgow
Regl no: 9547
Reg: Royal Engineers
Form Title: Territorial Force Attestation

Unfortunately there are no birth details on the images. That said, he was 26y in 1915 [b. c1889] when he was declared medically unfit [Perforated Tympanic Membrane], apparently it started when he was 16y in IRELAND. Former occupation = painter. Spouse = Nellie, same address.

hello all,
Thanks very much on the amount of work done so far.
Ellie, I will have to get back to you asap on his Mothers Maiden name.
Geoff, I thought of that angle but never heard of WW1 mentioned in the Family, but thats not to say it was'nt so. This is an angle I can check out myself as I am very interested in WW1. My grandfather on my Fathers side was an Irish Guard who fought in the First War and survived. John mulhaire/mulhern was an Uncle to my Mother.
Amanda, thanks for the Census search.
please see attached images of his grave in Glasgow. (so the Grave exists somewhere in or around Glasgow !).
