My grandfather, Joseph Menton, was a brother of Patrick Joseph Menton. There were 6 boys and 1 girl in the family. Margaret died aged 10. Three brothers, Patrick, Thomas and James all went to Boston. James returned to Ireland when his wife died in childbirth. Thomas married Bridget Norton in Boston and they had 5 children. I have a beautiful studio photo of Thomas' children which I found in my grandparent's house.
My grandfather and his wife Jenny (Jane Blaney) moved to Dublin in 1925. They had 11 children. My mother was the 7th child and the last to be born in Athlone.
My cousin, Robert Menton, who lives in Detroit, tells me he knows of a Bernie Menton who works for the same company as him in Boston. Do you know if this is Patrick and Bridget's grandson.
I have been researching the family tree for many years and spent many hours in the Boston archives trying to find my grandfather's brothers and their families. I was determined to find out who the children were in that photograph.
