Finn, Ballaghaderreen, Ireland

Classification: Query
Surnames: Finn
My grandmother, whom I never met, immigrated to the US when she was 14. All I have been told is her name is Catherine Finn, she came from County Mayo, Ballaghaderreen, and she was born in 1879. Her father was supposedly the mayor of County Mayo and cut off a man's ear because he was a traitor. My father said his name was Mathew.

I've looked in the census and cemeteries, but I only find a few Finns, and no mention of Mathew. I'm coming to Ireland in April.

Any leads would be appreciated!!
