Hi y'all,

I need some help. My 3rd cousin wrote me and says a couple I was asking about only had two children, a nun and a priest. He says, "end of the line, but a pub in Malaragh near Doonis has 1 unmarried lady, Lizzie Murey, still alive - same family."

Does he mean pub, like a bar?

When I google Malaragh, it comes up with "malaria"

I need to find out about the pub and what it could mean because I want to write her!

Thanks for any help,
Suzy

I find a Malaragh about 20 miles southeast of Enniskillen in Fermanaugh, and another one about 25 or 30 miles northwest of Armagh.

Thanks, Liz, but Doonis is near Athlone in Westmeath and it's supposed to be outside Doonis. Those are in diferent counties all together.

On the other hand, the Michelin maps site is realy great and I have bookmarked it to help me find other things!

Lookie at this! A replay to a message from 2005, how cool is this? I am so sorry she died, though, in the interim!

Lennon is the maiden name of my great grandmother. And Murray is either her mother's name, or the maiden name of her mother!
Do you think Tom Lennon has an interest in genealogy?

Do you know if he has email?

Thanks for the reply!
