James...Gievn that the info given on the Reg of death is only as good as those providing it then I would look at the info on James J Cusker's ...place of birth reads Kals...reckon that is "Kells" however Nellie Philps has me bamboozled..also on Catherine Cusker McLaughlins it shows "Cork" again could be a mistranscription....

Gins,

The 1881 Scotland Census about Mary McDade with father's name Dominick McDade would fit so I will follow that up.

I am also looking into the Patrick Clusker and Nellie Phillips scenario from information previously provided by Eringobragh1916.

Thank You Once Again for your assistance, appreciated.

Gins...I have to agree these are all the same family..probably the IOWA birth place for James reads Irel. on the original..the transcriptions are nearly illegible on some of the docs I have looked at.

James...Unless there are 2 families with the same named children in the same place then I think the one 1910 is correct...

Yes James thats what puzzled me also hence the reason I needed the Census...I seem to recall a mother named Susan McClare...?

Never the less the details of James Clusker (death above) husband of Mary McDade show his parents as stated.
I found on one of the the Clusker family births that James Clusker father his place of birth given as Ireland (Cork) thought I had struck gold now I cannot find the damned thing..!!
The problem is I dont have access to view BMDs/census for the states....so cant triple check.


If you click onto the link below you will see Anthony and Agnes gravestone..there is also a couple of others I think Mary b 1925 is the Mary M Clusker one.

Eringobragh1916,

Thank you for that information, much appreciated.

I found the marriage for Philip McLaughlin and Catherine Clusker on Scotlands People and I think I have found their children, so thanks to you that is another lineage I can add to my tree:-

1903 MCLAUCHLAN PHILIP CLUSKER KATE FAULDHOUSE /WEST LOTHIAN 673/02 0001

In regards to Anthony, are you saying there were three children, Mary, James, and Agnes. I have Agnes, she was born 1925 and died in 1931. In respect of Anthony I have him as having died on 29/02/1928 in Springfield, Sangamon, Illinois.

That said, this James Clusker puzzles me:-

"James Clusker was a Corkman and his parents were Patrick Clusker and Nellie Philips"

I do not have a Patrick Clusker married to a Philips in my tree, possibly he is a son of one of the other Patrick Clusker's on the Irish side which as yet I have not found the time to research.

Best Wishes,

James
