McCorry Ancestry Glasgow Scotland

This evening, I am posting a video clip of a McCorry family memorial located in Eastwood Old Cemetery, Glasgow. This tells a fascinating story of a Doctor who dies at age 42 yrs and two sons who are both killed in the Great War albeit fighting for separate armies ( Canada and Australia), both in their later 40s.

  • Peter McCorry M.D. Born Aug 15th 1838 Died Nov 28 1880.
  • Son, Peter Born April 28 1879 Died April 5th 1900.
  • Son, James (Australian forces) Born May 16th 1871 Died/Killed July 28th 1916 France.
  • Son, Thomas (Canadian forces) Born Feb 21 1874 Died in hospital in England June 13 1918.
  • Jane Maclurkin (wife of Peter?) Born April 13 1840 Died March 3rd 1927.

Yes, I saw the history of this family. and thought how hard it must have been for Jane McCorry. To lose so many from her family.
