Weir Ancestry Cathcart Glasgow Scotland

This evening, I am posting a video clip of a Weir family memorial from Cathcart Cemetery, Glasgow.

This is unusual in that most of the family actually died in Belfast, Northern Ireland and hence I don't fully understand the rationale for the memorial in Glasgow. It would appear that the family were involved in the Northern Irish linen industry. Here is a list of the names:

  • Janet Graham, wife of William Weir J.P., Springfield Mills, Belfast who died at Belfast on Nov 10th 1903 age 62 yrs.
  • William weir J.P. who died at Belfast on March 2nd 1906 age 70 yrs.
  • William, son of above, died Oct 13th 1863 (infant).
  • James, son of above, who died at Belfast on Dec 16th 1908 age 37 yrs.
  • Daughter, Agnes Biggar died at Glasgow Oct 5th 1930 age 64 yrs.
  • Daughter, Stella Trevitt Weir, died August 31st 1950 age 78 yrs.
