I think your great grandmother may have been Mary Mcauley if this is them then they were married in bellshill. In death records joseph died age 61 in 1982 john aged 85 1989 and james aged 83 in 1990 all reg in lochore gave mothers name as mcauley.
I found patrick bn 28 dec 1909 in the Scottish RC parish baptisms father john mother mary mcauley also godfather was Alexander Dillon and godmother margaret mcauley
bridget married an Andrew black scullion and died 1964 and is buried in ballingry

hope this helps

Fantastic. I've heard my father refer to Mary McAuley, so this is definitely my family :)
Thank you
