and actually any of you here discussing this family. The Patrick McDonnell who married Mary Conneely is my wife's great grandfather also. All of this is very interesting, and I've been taking note of it all. I would like to ask if anyone knows anything about Molly. We knew her as Mary Agnes. Nobody in the family seems to know much about her, and her last child, my father in law, died last year.

I was in contact with Brian several years ago and passed on to my father in law the information he had, but I have not been able to find much more about her.

I was always told that she came to America when she was young through Ellis Island, but I have found a very promising record of a Mary McDonnell coming into the port of Boston from Queenstown in 1910 at 18 years old. It lists that she was sent off by her father Patrick McDonnell from Tully. Her final destination is listed as Leominster Mass, which is where she spent the rest of her life. This all seems to fit with the information I have for her, does anyone know if this is her?

There are not many photographs of her, but I have a couple. I would also be interested in sharing any photos of her other relatives with her family in Leominster if you would care to share them.

Thanks for any help.
