McGrory's (McRorey) of Donegal
My Gr-grandfather, Hugh McGrory was born in Donegal in 1853 and his parents were James McGrory & Mary McGowan. He came to Glasgow in 1873 and married Jane McFadyen, whose father Patrick (born in Ardstraw, Tyrone) was already settled in Glasgow. Hugh & Jane had 7 children before Jane died in 1897. Hugh's son, also Hugh, was my grandfather. His brother William, also lived in Glasgow and never married. He spent a month in Ireland in both 1908 and 1909 so there was obviously still family in Donegal at that time.

Any information you can provide would be appreciated
