I have just stumbled on to this topic and the name McMunnagil caught my attention. My granny, was Isabella Walker (maiden name McMunnagil), and she lived in Dennistoun. Offhand, I can't remember when she was born but she passed away in the 70s aged 80+. I do remember she had a brother Sonny and she also called her eldest son Robert. My sister Isabel (also Isabella) has a second name McMunnagil, having been called after our granny.
It all sounds possible that there could be a connection with your family. I do hope so. One of my cousins in Scotland tracked the family tree and found that there were several spellings of the name McMunnagil, some of whom were our descendants. I would have replied to your enquiry years ago if I had seen it then.
