Patrick BURKE and Martha McGARVEY
from County Armagh, Ireland and Scotland to Gloucester Township
New March 15, 2005:

Hello  my name is Jeannie and I have researched my line back to Patrick Burke and 
Martha Mcgarvey (Mcgarvil).  They were married in Paisley Scotland where Martha I 
believe was born, Patrick was from Ireland...where ?????  April 29, 1854 Married. 
Daughter Margaret was born Oct 22, 1857 in Scotland 
They lived in Ottawa area for all of their adult lives and had many children 
Their first born daughter Margaret was my maternal great grandmother.  They appear 
on the 1871 census and Patrick was a farmer  Other children listed were Martha age 
11, Maria age 9, Patrick age 5, May age 3, Rose Ann born May 1870  They lived outside 
the Ottawa area in a place called Russell or what was once called Billings Bridge.  
First born son was John in England. 1855/56, daughter Elizabeth was born 1873 and 
son Edward was born 1875.  I believe Edward was also called Ned.  (I have a picture 
of him). Son Patrick had a middle name of Ambrose and married an Elizabeth Crites in 1886. 
Patrick Burke (father) died in 1906 at age 77 in Junction Gore Gloucester and only 
indicated he was from County Armagh. Martha wife dies in 1903 and I believe Edward Burke 
was the informant.  
Their daughter Margaret married Joseph Hughes in Cyrville in 1875.
