  • Notes 
    • Extensive research has failed to uncover any trace of him under the name of LOVE before his death in 1874. However, identical records for John McGRATH, his wife and children have been located in Scotland from about 1848 It appears that his daughters, Elizabeth and Jane, changed their name to LOVE when they moved to Glasgow to obtain employment (pre 1871), followed by a similar name change by his wife and youngest son Edward after his death in 1874 (All probabably to avoid discrimination from their Irish name, a common problem in Glasgow at that time). His eldest son, Thomas, maintained the family name throughout his life. John's Death Registration (hard to read) states that his parents were James and Mary (can't decipher the mother's MS)
