I want to add this to Clare as the family in question may have strayed from Clare to Galway - this is what I have :
I am interested to find information about my irish ancestry prior to them making the journey from Milltown County Galway
Surname: RAINEY / REINEY /REANEY etc
Daniel Rainey (Born abt 1815) and his brothers John (1811) and Thomas (1811) were all born in Ireland. Milltown or thereabouts is a strong possibility.

Daniel (1815) married Bridget NOT KNOWN (Born About 1827) – in Milltown?
4 of their children were all born in Miltown ( Census information)
Each of the 4 , later died in Grimsby, England.
