Hi. I just saw this post. My granddad's mother was a Howley. His name was Thomas Marren. He was born August 9, 1883. He was from Belclare, Aclare Sligo. His dad's name was Thomas & mom's name was Margaret. My granddad resided on the South Side of Chicago. He died in 1977. He was the best! He was a very holy man with a rosary in his hand. If he wasn't praying he was lilting ldiddle-ee-ey. I hope to hear from you.
