Denis and Mary Gannon -- From Fermanagh to Ballina, County Mayo

I wonder if there is anyone out there who connects with me. My great-great-great-grandfather, Denis McGuire was born in County Fermanagh in approximately the late 1790s to early 1800s.

Denis McGuire married Mary Gannon. I don't know where this marriage took place, whether it was in County Fermanagh or in Ballina, County Mayo, where my great-great-grandfather Patrick McGuire was born about 1833. Patrick married Ellen McIntyre of Westport County Mayo before 1865 (I don't know whether that was in County Mayo or Pennsylvania USA).

Patrick McGuire of Ballina County Mayo (and son of Denis McGuire, a native of Fermanagh), had at least four siblings, all of whom made it to the United States. They were Michael and Thomas, who ended up, along with Patrick, in Scranton Pennsylvania. Two sisters, Mary McGuire Sylvia and Alice McGuire Costello, ended up in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Does any of the above ring any bells with anyone?

Thanks,

Jamie O'Brien
