Looking for Daniel Gorman born 1801 in Ireland.

Married to Margaret Russell from County Down.

Was a surgeon.

Any more information would be useful.

What information is already known in addition to the "any more" being requested?

and he was living in Scotland in 1841!

Estimated birth year: abt 1801
Gender: Male
Where born: Ireland

Civil Parish: Glasgow Bridgegate
County: Lanarkshire

Dane Gorman 40
Margt Gorman 42 b.ca 1799, Ireland

Dane Gorman 13 b.ca 1828, Lanarkshire

unfortunately, we cannot see the image of the census on Ancestry ......... it is available on Scotland's People, but that is a Pay-per-view site

I suggest that Helen follow this up on Scotland's People, paying for credits as she needs them

Just spotted these postings through a search. I have all my GORMAN details at http://gormanfamilytree.blogspot.co.uk/2010_08_01_archive.html
but apart from the 1841 census and OPRs of the births, I cannot track down any marriage or death of DANIEL GORMAN or of his wife Margaret .
