I am researching for James McPhillips born possibly around 1879 (this would be twenty years before my Grandfather was born). he was possibly born in Bailieborough, Caven, Ireland, this is where his Son my Grandfather Joseph John McPhillips and Grandmother married there on 24th August 1918 I sent for their marriage certificate which only gives my Grandfather as Joseph McPhillips my Grandmother as Ellen King, his fathers name as James McPhillips and my Grandmothers Fathers name as Pat King and their date of marriage and two witnesses which were my Grandmothers Brother and Sister. It does also say Church of Bailieborough. I have searched for months now and have not been able to find any information of James to carry on with my tree. and was wondering if anyone can find anything else out about him and his previous family please.
I would be most grateful for any information of him.
