David,

I looked at the link and then at the entry records again. The name Christine Westergard looks as if it is part of the entry for the previous person. Martin was single when he died, so there was no wife with a possible married sister. Martin was listed as female on this entry record, so I ignored it the first time I looked at it. I think now the occupation might be Saloon attendant, whatever that was.

Thank God for Martin, though. It was through him that I learned about Killaloe. When I found my grandfathers gravesite I found Martin was buried there too. And Martin has more information than anyone else so far. So at the grave is George, his first wife Annie, his second wife Ellen (Nellie, my grandmother) and MIchael, their son who died in infancy. I don't think George and Annie had any children. Annie was the daughter of Thomas O'Rourke and Marcella Gannon. I'm not sure if I have immigration records for George and Annie or not.

The request from the Brooklyn Eagle sounds to me as if Ann (mother) must have died or taken ill and Martin went home.

I have to sit with a chart each time I try to trace these people. The Irish like to re-use names. So many Georges, Anns, Marys and Margarets...!!! While I am thinking about it, I came across a couple of group photos on the web that included a Thomas Haskett. Maybe a relative???

Have you ever tried getting records from Ireland or the International Ancestry?
