Hugh does not appear in the census as he moved to Glasgow in the 1880s where he married and settled. Paul's grandfather, James

Kelly, was born in Glasgow in 1895. He married Sarah Jane Rutherford around 1924 in Glasgow.

Sarah appears in household 15 of the census, the one headed by Bernard Rutherford (b Stranorlar abt 1870) and Mary Bradley.

Bernard Rutherford's parents were Alan Rutherford, a Scottish Protestant who worked as a policeman in Stranorlar, and Catherine Tinney from Meenavoy.
