Information on McGiffords from Ireland, Stewarts of Scotland.

Journal by marieathome

My greatgrandfather was James McGifford of Belfast Ireland, married
to Mary Carson.One of their son,s Arthur married Margaret O'Hara,and
I believe she died, Arthur then married Jane Barclay. Arthur and Jane
had children named James, Mary, Jean, William, Thomas and Hugh.
Hugh was born September 1889 in Govan Scotland, Hugh married Isobella
Clark Stewart,on December 1913. [she was born to John Stewart and Elizabeth Stewart,[Clark] on September 1894 in Govan Scotland.
Hugh and Isobella had five children in Scotland named, Elizabeth,
Isobel, Allan, Jean and William. This family immigrated to Canada in
1925, residing in Saskatchewan where Helen, [twins] Margaret & Mary,
John and Edwin were born. In 1945 they moved to British Columbia.
Hugh, Isobella, Elizabeth, Isobel, William and Edwin have passed away. My grandfather John Stewart operated a dairy farm in Glasgow
area, called "Sweethills Farm" also operated a store {co-op I believe] in Govan. He also owned a summer home in Dunoon [not sure of
spelling]. My grandfather Arthur is shown as a Corporation Labourer.
Other names mentioned in papers as family are, Helen Stewart, Jeanie
McGifford, M. S. Barclay, and M. S. Clark.
Any information would be appreciated.
