Surnames: Petty, Burke
I am looking for anyone who may be researching the Petty surname from County Mayo, Ireland and the surrounding area. My Great Grandmother, Elizabeth (Eliza) Petty, was born in 1875 in Cong, Mayo to William Petty and Margaret (Burke) Petty. She immigrated to the United States in 1896, settled in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and became Elizabeth Coderre (Petty).

Her parents, William Petty (Ballinrobe, County Mayo) and Margaret Burke (County Galway) were married in Headford, County Galway, Ireland in 1858. William Petty's father was George Petty. Margaret Burke's father was James Burke.

My Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Petty, had siblings from Cong, Mayo born to William Petty and Margaret Burke. Here is the information I have thus far.
John Petty, born 1864
Ellen petty, born 1866
Margaret Petty, born 1870
Mary Petty, born 1873 (Nicknamed Mamie, married a Tenian)
Susan Petty, born 1877 (arrived in the US in 1900, married a man named John)
Kate, birth date unknown

I am hoping to connect with anyone who may have a connection with any of these names. Thank you.
