|MCCLOSKEY / MCCARTNEY
| I am searching for the Londonderry beginnings of my g-g-grandparents Patrick McCLOSKEY b. circa 1811 Londonderry and Janet McCARTNEY also born in Londonderry circa 1815. They had seven known children: Margaret, John, James, Elizabeth Jane and Philip all born in Londonderry. Anne and Patrick were born in Wishaw, Scotland. The family migrated to Wishaw, Lanarkshire, Scotland sometime between 1847 and 1851. The father and sons worked in the coal mines in the Lanarkshire area. My great-grandfather James McCLOSKEY married Mary GORMAN in Wishaw in 1862 and in 1869 immigrated to Blomington then Streator, Illinois where the men continued their occupations as coal miners. The family was of the Catholic faith. I will appreciate ANY information about their Londonderry beginnings, birth dates, marriage etc.
