Thanks for replying yes I know that my Great grandfather Thomas came from Ross, County Clare. I have been researching my family for over 20 years and have been in contact with relatives both in Ireland and the United States. I have visited Kilbaha and all of the areas around County Clare and have stayed with the other Crottys as well. Does this mean that we are related??? If there is anything that I can help you with I would be glad to do this. My family tree is on Ancestry.com but I have it private.
Cheers Juleen (Julie) Spence (nee Ireland)
