Hi, My grandfather was Stephen Brett, the son of Ellen Cody and John Brett. He was born in Mullinahone in 1874. He had about 12 brothers and sisters,one of which must be your grand or great grandparent. He eloped to America in 1897 but visited Mullinahone and the family several times throughout his life. Stephen and his brother Nicholas were the only siblings to immigrate to America. I would love to find out more about the family history if you would not mind sharing. Two of my children met Ed Brett in the Brett Hardware store a few years ago.He told them that his grandfather and their great grandfather (my grandfather Stephen) were brothers. We are a very big family in America. Stephen and his wife Margaret O'Connell (also from Mullinahone) had 8 children,18 grandchildren and 52 great grand children. I am the youngest grandchild. Thank you so much for responding I really appreciate you taking the time to write. Hope to hear from you soon.
