Hi everyone, I've hit "the brick wall, for years now) trying to find the the towns in Ireland, where my GP were born, William J Coffey(e) b. 1853, Ireland, m. Mary McGowan(en) b. 1854, Ontario, Canada, m. 1872 Ontario, Canada. Five chldren, one born in Pennsylvania, where GP died. GGF, William Coffey, m. Mary O'Neill(l). No other info. at this time.
I believe I've found my GGF on GM side, John McGowan, b. 1811, Ireland, m Ann Allan(en), b. 1816, Ireland, m. 1845, Ontario, Canada. They had six children, all born in Canada.
I know my GF Coffey(e) and uncle were carpenters. He died in Pgh. PA.
My GM, Mary McGowan(en), died in Pgh., PA. with Mary Flynn(Flinn) at her side. This info.
was received per cemetery records.
PLEASE, any info. on these families would be so appreciated.
Thank you and have a great day.......
