In 1885 the children except for eldest son Patrick, were sent to Canada. My grandfather, his surname changed to Gagan, left Canada with his wife & daughter in 1900 and went to Scotland.
Sisters, Grace & Laura remained in Canada. Grace married Augustus Gartland, sadly three of her children died in 1903. She died in 1931, would love to contact any descendants.
Laura may have married after 1901, but at present married name unknown. She was still in Ontario in 1901 working for the Lally family, anyone know of her?
