My sister and I saw your message. Our great grandmother was Sarah Ann Power who marrried James Dormody. He died in a boating accident (they were fishermen) and then she remarried Patrick Houlahan in Newfoundland. Sarah had a daughter named Annastacia and a son Peter, as well as 2 other sons: Michael and James. Does any of this ring a bell? Sarah Ann Power Dormody Houlahan moved to Bristol Connecticut USA and died there in 1962.
