Thanks for the reply. Your information has drawn a clear line in the family tree. I can't help to be excited.
John (married Julie Dunne) is the brother of James Goss (marrid to Catherine Gibbons).
James Goss is my husband's great grandfather.
For some reason, John and Julie moved from Carlow to Westmeath (I can't even imagine that journey in the early 1900's). I would love to know what prompted them to move.
John and James' parents were J. Goss and Bridget Kavanagh.
From there I draw a blank. I would love to know more.
I can't access your email yet. We'll have to think of a way to contact each other directly.
In the meantime, check out our family tree on ancestry.
All the best,
