Thanks for the info.
Michael was 1 of 6 children. The 4 eldest; Mark Patrick, Julia, James and John Edward all emigrated. I only recently discovered this almost by chance. Mark Patrick's tree is well documented and very well researched so a whole new branch opened up. It was a nice discovery as none of my mothers generation were aware of this side of the family.
Michael as we know stayed home in Ireland. I assume Elizabeth also but would need to check further.
