Any Gilligans or Kivlehans in Sligo.
Michael Gilligan b abt 1825 came to the US in 1848. Settled in Dubuque Co. Iowa by 1857 when he married Mary Cullen. On his death certificate his parents are listed as Michael Gilligan and Winefred Kivlehan.
I've found a possible brother who visited Michael in the late 1880's in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Martin was b abt 1825 also. He married Julia Hopkins in NY. The lived also NJ and Scranton PA until 1884. They left Cedar Rapids for Butte MT about 1895. Martin died about 1868/9 om PA possible mine accident.
Any knowledge any one?
