Mary Waters married James Kilkie in 1871 in the Gorbals, Glasgow. Both families were part of the Irish diaspora fleeing the Irish Famine.
Welcome to KILKIE.ORG
Our site contains background and stories about the 5000+ people descended from John Kilkie + Sarah Roddie from Derry (Ireland), John Halliday +Margaret Jane Rogan also from Derry (Ireland), John Lloyd + Sarah Parry from Cilcain (Wales) and James Howard + Ann Grey from Yarmouth (England), around 1720. Over the 300 years since then more than 500 other families have connected by marriage - our site follows as many of them as possible. Although we follow the patrynomic system many of the strongest characters were the women in the family.
The site gives general information on the surnames of our family, the places they come from and the times they lived in. Detailed stories are reserved for family members only after login. Facts about our family history can be found on the TNG site.
