During a recent visit to Ireland I stopped in the Town of Oranmore to take a look around. My family (Bench)originally immigrated from there in about 1849. To my surprise I found out that there is a walled cemetery there (The Oranmore Old Cemetery) that has been revitalized and indexed over the last 10 years. The graves date from the 1600's. It is presently being looked after by the Oranmore Historical Society. I am sure there are many people that are researching the area around Oranmore and are not aware of its existence as well. The information can be accessed on-line. If you are interested please indicate so and I will provide the info. By the way I found one of my ancestors buried there. Good luck to all!!
