I am curently trying to find information on my grandfather's side.
His name was Edward A. Melia, son of Michael and Kate (Katherine or Catherine we are not sure) Griffin. I believe one or both of his parents were born in Ireland as was he but we are not positive. We are unaware of any siblings. Ed married Ruth Lenore Noseworthy and had three children before they divorced who were named Catherine Jane, Barry Michael and Karen Ann all of Medford MA.
My grandfather became estranged and passed away in Boston in 1988 after a life time of alcholism. Because of his problems my immediate family was never able to speak with him and my grandmother (Ruth) remembers very little about his side beyond his parent's names. I know a good amount about my Noseworthy side but am also researching them prior to their arrive in the states in the lat 1800's.
