Curious to know if you still check this site. My name is Seán Lavelle and I have gathered a good deal of information on my Lavelle family as well but would be interested to know what you have dug up too. I also have a Hines in my family, although, it may be Hone as I am finding more records - some indicate Hines others Hone. If you still, check, please drop me a line. sean.lavelle.ire@Gmail.com
Incidentally, I am in the Philadelphia area. I have a Patrick Lavelle as well in my family who is my great grandfather from Belmullet, Mayo.
