I am looking for any information about my great-grandmother, Bridget Foran of County Clare, Ireland. Her parents were Michael Foran and Eleanore Hassett.We don't have much info on her, but she immigrated to the US or Canada sometime before 1855. She spoke of a brother, Michael, who had been killed in Ireland because he knew how to read and write. She may have lived by the ocean because she spoke of seeing sea-monsters in her home-land. The story was that she came over without her parents as a teenager along with a younger sister and when they got to their destination, there was nobody to greet them. Don't know whatever happened to the little sister. Bridget married Martin Cain in 1855 and settled in Schleswig, Wisconsin.
