His father, John McBride immigrated to Cork from Scotland. A Presbyterian, he married Jessie Tait in September 1893 at Midleton Co. Cork. Jessie Tait lived at a farm called The Hermitage which still exists and has Tait descendants in residence. John and Jessie has two sons, William (my uncle Bill) and James (my father).
