Hi Bob, I am really not looking for Ryans. KathrynCz has Ryans in her tree somewhere. Our connection is Dwyer. I just wanted to tell her that I was in contact with a local (Templemore /Graffin) elderly resident who recalls that there were Ryans in the same area as the Dwyers in the late 1800s and early 1900s. My source stated that the Ryans left and joined the Malloys in the NY area. The Malloys ( my great grandmother was a Malloy) left Tipperary (Loughmoe & Thurles) in the late 1800s. Other than that, I have no info on Ryans. Sorry! Happy Hunting!
