I've been researching my Garrity roots for the past three months. My great-grandfather was Hugh Garrity, born 1/14/1838 in Ireland. Hugh had at least four sons, Thomas J., Hugh Jr., William, and John F., my grandfather.
According to Hugh Sr's death certificate, his father's name was Patrick. I'm also being told the family supposedly came from Mayo County. Do you think there may be a connection, please respond back.
