How can I thank you for the detailed summary of the Burke family? I really appreciate your efforts. Perhaps I can provide information about Bridget and Mary after leaving Inishbofin. By the way, how does one obtain an invitation to the page you mention for Inishbofin Descendants? I did visit the island in 2002 but had little information at that time.
Bridget and Mary both settled in Pittsburgh. (Bridget came first and Mary followed a few years later). Bridget had 3 sons (one died in infancy) and one of them, Edward Joseph o'Kane become a Jesuit priest. Her other son, Bernard, my father, had two daughters and one son, now living in Pittsburgh, Birmimgham, Michigan (me) and California.
Mary married John Cloherty and had 8 children (7 daughters and one son). She spent her life time in Pittsburgh. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are disbursed throughout the US. I have more details about them if someone is interested.
