I'm looking for descendants of Darby (aka Dermott) Grealis from Loughrea, Galway, Ireland. He was father to my great grandmother Teresa Grealis who married Thomas Hannon from the neighboring town of Portumna.

Following Darby's death in 1878, his wife Elizabeth (aka Eliza) Hanlon and their son Joseph Grealis emmigrated to New York City in 1880.

It's possible Joseph took in my grandmother Mary Hannon, the daughter of Thomas and Teresa, after she immigrated to New York about 1892 at age 16.

I'm looking for any tidbits about the Grealis family, especially the line that settled in Manhattan, New York.
