I understand that Samuel McGuigan was born in Ballyclare, Co. Antrim in 1880, the son of Arthur McGuigan and Janet Burgess McGuigan. He lived in Juniper Green, Edinburgh, where most of his siblings were born. He was my Granddad's cousin.
James, from Duneane, does not appear to be a direct relation, with Arthur's family being Presbyterians and James's family being Roman Catholics. I note there was a James McGuigan living in Tannaghmore, Duneane, County Antrim in the 1850's, according to Griffith's Valuation. I see that another post on the forum refers to the 1911 Irish Census and to James's address as Raglan St, Belfast.
