Will try askig this another way.  Can anyone help me find out what happened to John Kerr Weir (Weir-1362), Elizabeth Ducan Weir (Weir 1363) & George M Weir (Weir 1364)

These are my cousins & interested in where they went to.  Have found the death of Elizabeth (Herd,Hird-31) who on her death is stated as a widow.  She died in July 1908 at the Tewksbury Home after suffering a stroke.

Did you check the Scotland/Ireland Census records 1880-1900 to see if for a time they returned there?

Believe we looked for them but no luck tho lots of Weirs.  Believe something happened in this family & either the father died. With the Mother going out to work with the children either placed or also dying.  Elizabeth's Dad Archibald Hird died in then1880-1890 range.  She died as a house worker In 1908 in Tewksbury, Mass. Home.
Family Search shows his second name as "Muoie".  Wonder if this could be a mistake or if it's Gaelic?  That of course is George the son.  It looks like he lived until his 16th birthday but am most anxious to find out if anyone here speaks Gaelic & can advise me about George M Weir (Weir-1364) second name.
